This short story was actually Arina Tanemura’s first full length manga. It’s a cute short story about a girl, with a special good luck charm, falling in love with a boy while attaining even more telekinetic powers. Is this any more realistic than her other manga, or the manga that’s to be? Sure; it has a mix of science and the supernatural so something like this could happen.

The art in this manga is iconic and it’s what Tanemura’s known for – big eyes, detailed hair, and the same face & personality. You see, Tanemura hadn’t really deviated from the looks she gave her other characters. read more

So this is a 1 volume manga so if you're interested I would just go on and read it since it isn't a bad read. It is a typical shojo manga with some psychic abilities thrown in. The art style is typical of this mangaka and you can def recognize some similarities between her other works- which is fine just saying. I think the opening scene was very engaging and the ending scene was comedic. I was engaged in the story the entire time as it was a good mix of comedy and serious. Overall 6- because yeah like I said nothing special. What one read more
