Mildly amusing manga. I don't read much manga, and I suspect the parts that bother me are standard; but this got off to a very slow start (by the end of the first book she's just settled in to her new home, and done a total of two spells), and there's a lot about various relationships (her cousin, his girlfriend, the little girl whose name is similar to the cat) that's not very clear to me. I never did figure out who the little girl is - how she's related (I presume she is). The story is pleasant, mildly amusing, and not sufficiently interesting to me to read on. I also struggled a bit (as usual) with the right-to-left reading - I kept reading panels out of order, which sometimes contributed to confusion. I did see the (very vague) similarities to Kiki's Delivery Service - aside from "new/young witch moves to new place", not much. ( )

A chillaxing, slice-of-life story with a twist of magic added in. One might be tempted to even call it a "coming of age" story but nothing so dramatic happens in the series so far as I'm up to volume 6 with volume 7 coming soon. There are no arch-rivals, no threats to the world with earth shaking magical duels. Just a high school girl gaining more experience in her magical abilities after moving in with relatives in the Japanese countryside (sort of a reversed version of Kiki's Delivery Service where she moved to a big city). Naturally the art improves as the series progresses. If you want a change of pace from action manga/anime or even the anxiety of the real world we live in today then I heartily recommend this series.

Real cute every day witchery. I enjoyed it. The relationships between characters are cute and quirky. ( )

The artwork and dialogue is pleasant enough, but the stories are so mild as to be pointless. It's sort of a modern version of [b:Casper, the Friendly Ghost and Wendy, the Good Little Witch Storybook|5710627|Casper, the Friendly Ghost and Wendy, the Good Little Witch Storybook|Harvey Books Staff|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1308883085s/5710627.jpg|5882227], so kids might like it.
