A short sweet love story which is great for a short read.
The story is something that's been done before, a country "unfashionable girl from the countryside moves in and meets handsome boy/idol of school and a series of events happen which = love" but Shiny Doll really does this quite good. Although plain you can still expect the ups and downs you would get from reading a long love/shoujo manga and won't be disappointed.
Your classic shoujo art style but the characters are well drawn and express the expressions and tone of the manga well. The art isn't anything spectacular but you won't be disappointed while
reading this manga.
The characters are quite well developed even though the story is so short. We see quite a different personalities which are developed quite nicely although the short chapters make its difficult for the characters to develop further. Better than some long romance manga's in the character department if I say so myself.
Overall I believe that Shiny Doll is a great short manga if you want to read something fast. It still has the feels from most romance manga's and the character developments and art are nicely done.
