As a Finn, I found this manga absolute blast to read. The ridiculousness of the whole setting is a laugh inducing riot. It's almost sacrilegious in it's depiction of Simo Häyhä and the winter and continuation war. The story is a loose adaptation (to put it mildly) of a real history. It tells the story of ace sniper Simo Häyhä who fights along Finnish forces in the warfront against the red menace. Joining Simo we see a cavalcade of characters each equally loose and wholly fictitious Manga archetypes.
Most of the appeal comes from seeing how the real history events are adapted to this story, and read more

As a finnish person I can say that this is bullshit. I almost find it insulting. First of all, Simo is a finnish name for males. The "real" Simo Häyhä (because yes, he was a real soldier who fought in Winter war) was a male. I have no idea why they made him a female in the manga.

I don't think I have ever disliked a manga this much. Especially because when I heard that there would be a manga about winter war I was really excited, so this was just a huge disappointment. At least the art is good.

It's a short and to the point manga starring none other than the deadliest sniper in history, Simo Häyhä, gender-flipped for the moe fanbase. The story revolves around the titular White-Witch (or White Death, as he was originally known to the Soviets) and her exploits during the 3 month Winter War from late 1939 to early 1940. This is a short manga numbering about half-dozen chapters and rather straightforward.

The artwork is great, but everything else is lacking. Characters have no depth, plot is simple, and while I did enjoy reading it (mostly for the art), it ended too abruptly and on an unsatisfactory note. read more

Or, how to make a legendary person's achievements seem insignificant.

Let's just ignore the fact that they replace Simo Hayha's gender for a bit, as that is par for the course when it comes to "historical" anime/manga. I have no problem with that.

What makes this series disappointing is how insignificant it makes Simo Hayha's achievements are. Anyone who has even read Simo Hayha's entry on Wikipedia or even TV Tropes will know that this man was practically a living legend at the time, well-deserving of a spot on any "Extraordinary Humans" list. While they do single out Simo Hayha in this series as an excellent read more
