Short biography
An all-female Japanese mangaka group. Members include Nanase Ohkawa (大川 七瀬 Ōkawa Nanase?), who provides much of the storyline and screenplay for all their works and adaptations of those works respectively, and three artists whose roles shift for each series: Mokona (もこな Mokona?), Tsubaki Nekoi (猫井 椿 Nekoi Tsubaki?), and Satsuki Igarashi (いがらし 寒月 Igarashi Satsuki?)

This time Yûko makes Watanuki and Dômeki help a rain spirit with a rescue mission. Is Watanuki happy about this? Take a wild guess ;) It turns out to be very creepy, very scary and sad, with a twist. Both Watanuki and Dômeki do pretty well.

But they are still at it some pages later, though - Dômeki:
“If anything happened to you… I wouldn’t be able to have as many opportunities to laugh at an idiot in action.” Ouch.

The story about the wings was horrific. I wonder if it will be a part of a bigger plot, somehow? It certainly seems to be. (The fox spirit was so cool!) Also, there were the butterflies again… I know it means... something :)

The volume ends with a very cute adventure involving a magic urn and daffodils.

I’m really loving the art, it’s such a pleasure to just look, look, look.

Taking a break from this series for now, but I’ll be back!

Yay, good supernatural times!

Watanuki has to make Valentine’s Day chocolatey thing (chocolate/Valentine’s Day combo is a big deal in Japan, in case you didn’t know) for Yûko, and he is wonderfully mad at her about it. The very last chocolate fondant is for Himawari! But she’s sick! On Valentine’s Day, of all days! And then Dômeki casually strolls by and eats it. I agree with Watanuki, this kind of sucks. But maybe, just maybe, it doesn’t deserve the drama he makes about it? Teenagers… :)))

But then Dômeki is in big big (supernatural) trouble, and Watanuki feels he has to help. There is a short, exciting adventure, and it all ends well. Phew. (You guys are such great frenemies.)

Watanuki keeps making delicious lunches for Dômeki in this volume as well. Is this going to be a thing? (Not that I mind great food.)

The story with the twin sisters and words as bonds was very nice and touching, but not very interesting. It didn’t add much. The last few pages featuring the ghost hand were creepy, though...

This instalment was so much fun!

Watanuki is endearingly ridiculous about disliking Dômeki (and makes delicious lunches and snacks for him throughout the volume).

Yûko sends them on a mission all by themselves (and I am sure she is thinking long-term, somehow). Well, Himawari, Watanuki’s crush, did ask for help, so… Off they go, and sort of kind of take on some scary spirits.

The conversations between Yûko and Watanuki are hilarious, too – she objects to Watanuki using the word “clutches” when talking about her relationships with other people ;)

The main story here is of “be careful what you wish for” variety. By the way, shouldn’t witches know by now that giving someone a curious beautiful thing they want and making them promise not to open it… is probably a bad idea? It makes for a good, creepy supernatural story, though.

I really liked the last short chapter with the fox spirits.

“Why are there people suddenly coming out of the sky?”

Watanuki, may I suggest you get used to this kind of thing? There are many more volumes to go!

It was fun to take a look at multiple universes and connections to other manga series. (I did read Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle Vol. 1, but never got around to reading the rest for some reason. And I have dipped my toes into Cardcaptor Sakura the anime…) Sakura and Syaoran broke my heart a little in that first chapter.

Then we’re off to have other adventures, with Watanuki constantly out of his depth. There are clues of things to come. (Why do these butterflies keep appearing, hmm?)

I loved the ghost stories night: the stories, the scary stuff happening and Watanuki/Dômeki dynamic. The reveal about their supernatural dynamic is very promising indeed.

The art is gorgeous yet again, my eyes were happy :) And here is the required phrase, “I am looking forward to the next volume”, ;)
