This would be your normal romantic comedy except for one very important factor: whenever demons use their powers to help humans, they lose that power. Lose enough and the demon will disappear entirely! This brings up a question that every true shojo heroine must answer for herself: Is true love worth dying for?
Overall, I really liked this book. The characters were cute and entertaining. While it sometimes strayed from total believability (come on, it’s a story about a love-struck demon!) I’m glad I bought it, and I plan to check out more from Rie Takada. If not for one small problem, I’d slap 5 stars on this baby and call it a day.
Since this is a one-volume series, the main question for me was: does it end well? Too often do I see short series scramble to wrap up everything in the last chapter. Unfortunately, Gaba Kawa falls victim to this. Instead of being a fitting conclusion to a funny series, it seems rushed and not very thought out. Gaba Kawa is a manga that just misses being “Great” and is instead regulated to merely “Good”.
If you’re in the mood for a quick read with cute characters, this is the one for you.

The story's pretty typical, at least the twist is if she uses her magic to help humans she can lose her power. So, she has to decide between love or self-perseverance. The art is nicely drawn, but nothing out of the ordinary for a shoujo.
It was a good short manga that was enjoyable. Overall, nothing extraordinary.
