Momoiro Heaven was, though short, a blast to read through. The characters were a change from:
Girl meets guy-----> Girl falls for guy
This ones a bit vague but it's more or less:
Girl meets guy -----> GUY falls for girl
But with twists that'll keep you reeling, honestly, I was like 'shoot. I didn't expect that to happen' which is a rare phrase for me to say.
The characters were something else, something else entirely. Their personalities were as different as salt from black pepper, and an entertaining combination at any rate. But as the story gets going we start to have glimpses of the characters and (I
have to say) some NOT ALL (some were actually quite decent) were cheesy but (hopefully) DIGESTIBLE kind of cheesy.
The art wasn't great nor was it too disproportionate which many artists have failed to accomplish but it skillfully reflects the characters personality, for example: they don't have lake-sized, alien-like eyes and are supposed to be human.
The illustrations pushed the reader to explore the characters personalities BY their looks and by doing so the writer has the ability to tackle everyday happenings and prejudices which has rarely been done before.
So I give the writer a pat on the back and the illustrator a high-five because both of them did a good job on creating this success of a story. However a warning to future readers: even through the Manga has a nice little front cover, it isn't as shoujo as shoujo readers expect, get it?
