Normal appearance, normal intelligence, normal in arts and sports... just normal. This is the entirely normal 14-year-old, Naru Sekiya. While she admires "heroines" she continues to live a normal life until one moonlit night she meets a "fairy." This foreign girl then guides her into the extraordinary world of the yosakoi dance.

Hanayamata, a masterpiece of an anime in my opinion. So how does the manga stack up?

Story: The first 34 chapters (and 5 volumes) is where the anime adapts to. Unfortunately, the part that I loved most in the last 2 episodes is much shorter in the manga.
After this, we do get new characters and their backstories, although I don't feel the same sense of magic it had. 8/10
Art - The art is still pretty good, though depicting yosakoi is hard in manga format. 8/10
Characters - The characters are where it shines, with each character having their own weaknesses and issues that are resolved throughout ...
