LOVED this manga so much I bought the 1st volume & am planning on buying the rest when they come out.
Read whole review OR just read the end & look @ the scores.
The story is very unique and interesting. It definitely keeps you reading.
When it comes to mangas and certain genre's there will always be similarities but it's the differences that make or break the manga & the differences in this manga make it.
It brings in not only the Edo period but also a supernatural element to it which makes it way more interesting. It's not a random supernatural element too,
like for ex: (NOT
A MANGA EX) At some point in the past the English believed vampires actually existed right...? So it's like bringing vampires in past England to life.
What I'm trying to say is that it brings things that were said to real but wasn't actually real, to life.
Another thing that makes it interesting is that this is not only about reincarnation & memories...
The main character, Yukari (the story follows a male writer), can time-travel back to his past body & gets to interact with the people he once knew.
I find this to be pretty unique because usually with reincarnation mangas, the main character will either 1. Bump into their past self through time-travel 2. Never time-travel & they rely on their memories of the past to come back to them
I personally thought the art was fantastic. I think an average rating for the art would be 7-8 but I gave it a 10 xD
The characters are pretty easy to connect to and like.
I really like the MC's personality & how he just goes along with the flow when he time-travels to his past body. He's kind of snarky & challenges people.
The rest of the characters are likable as well. (Although I prefer how they were in the past more than anything because some females in the present were hot males in the past haha)
The romance in the present-life is pretty mundane compared to the romance in the past life.
I wanna say that it's because the reincarnated characters become pretty typical shoujo characters but I guess that's a given because the mangaka wanted to focus more on the Edo period characters.
Well..if you can't tell by now, I really enjoy this manga.
I really love this.
The reincarnation-time-travel. The Edo period. The plot. The characters.
I love it all.
I can't guarantee that you'll LOVE this manga the way I do (because I have a fondness for reincarnation & historical mangas/animes) but I CAN say with confidence that you'll like this manga & keep reading it.
If you HATE IT then I just...I just don't know what to say to you. xD
With that said, I'm well aware that my scores (for everything) are pretty high.
I think an average reader would give give this an overall score of 7-8 but mine will strongly stand at a 9.
