Meet the Urumas, a slightly dysfunctional family of four sorcerers. Mom, being the most powerful sorceress around, works away from home keeping the world safe. Dad picks up the slack and takes care of the family. Except when he's out, which is when the older brother Jin finds himself in the unenviable position of keeping tabs on his sister Ran. And Ran, the youngest, is a willful girl with too much power and too little wisdom. Let's take a look at Ran's everyday misadventures, shall we?

Part of what makes this manga extraordinary, in my opinion, can be described by the age-old literary proverb: "show, don't tell." Yes, your 2nd grade English teacher told you this, as did your 5th grade and 8th grade English teachers. All of your English teachers, in fact (each subsequently more and more worried about your continuous failures in essay writing... no? just me?).

"Show, don't tell!"

Ran to Haiiro no Sekai, or "Ran and the Grey World," is a low-fantasy (fantasy set in a realistic world) coming-of-age story. Put simply, Aki Irie tells a beautiful story in a read more

Without a doubt the best and sexiest manga out there. I don't mean sexy in a fan service type of way though. This is a Josei manga in the purest sense, because even though the characters are adults, they maintain the signature Shojo sparkle. But the sparkle has been refined with age, to a point where if you saw the characters in everyday life your eyes would naturally be drawn to them.

The whimsy that permeates this world is always there, even at its most serious moments of Drama and Melodrama. The art quality is absolutely phenomenal on every level, read more

Note: At the time of my initial review, there was about 11 chapters released. I understand that MUCH has changed within that time, and I have made necessary adjustments. I hope that this review is much more faithful and reflects what Ran To Haiiro No Sekai has become.


Ran To Haiiro No Sekai is hands down probably the best manga in a long, long time. If that's all you needed to hear, then close MAL and go read it.

I think this is a little redundant to say (as the title translates to Ran and the Ashen World), but this is a story about Ran. It is read more

Easily one of my favorite things ever, but flawed and difficult to recommend. The villain's unacceptable behavior is pretty unsettling, though I appreciate the way his character is handled by the end of his presence.

I also appreciate just how long it goes on after the final battle against the antagonists; almost half the manga takes place after that point. There's enough time for the characters to properly bounce back from that and to get to back to the real point: the parallel stories of adults and children dealing with stress.

The adults face hectic work and tough decisions, while the kids face the veil coming down read more
