One of Naoko Takeuchi's other works, Maria is a beautiful tale about a girl falling in love.

Though typical in story, Maria makes up for it with the tone and characters and slight mystery presented. It leaves you guessing at parts, and smiling at others. I always end up reading this manga when I come back to anime and manga because of how simplistic yet timeless it is.

Because there is no review I thought why not write one.
I thought I should read Naoko's other works to see more of her style of telling and art.
Actually there is nothing special about the story or that really stands out.
I think it's the simplicity that made this manga sweet.
Also because it's very close to reality you can feel the characters.

Naoko Takeuchi is known for her master piece Sailor Moon.
Her style of drawing I would say a "classic-shojo-style" so it looks different from the current styles of drawing.
I think you need to love her style to be able to read this manga too.

I reccomend this manga read more
