Decided to give a new manga series a try. I bought the first two volumes of this one, and I was not disappointed. This is a wonderfully complex and interesting world. And the artwork is very well done. I want to know these characters more.

...is it common for Libraries to not know how Manga works and cover the front with stickers instead of the back? 🤨

InBooksILive Stickers on any books drives me insane! Especially when they're on the front over the title or the image on front. Ugggghhh 1y
EclecticBookLover Yes it is. Many libraries have their books processed by an outside company and sticker placement is standardized (sticker is placed 1/4 of an inch from top of book an 2 inches in from left side, etc.). Working in cataloging was so annoying because of stuff like this. So unfortunately, words on books get cover up and manga is just too much for the companies to handle. I'll get off my doapbox now... 1y
EclecticBookLover I totally feel your pain. 1y

xicanti My library puts the stickers on the front now because they had issues with many librarians getting RSIs from flipping the books over at the checkout counter. (There are self-checkouts now, but lots of people still go to the counter.) The only place this really works out for the reader is with manga, because the processors treat the back like the front and slap the barcodes on there. It does make it hard to scan the jacket copy, though. 1y
Purrsistently @xicanti the plot thickens😐 1y
violetmoon 😍 The Ancient Magus Bride!!! I have all the volumes in Korean (which I'm trying to learn) and I've watched the anime (have you?). Anyway, I f 1y
violetmoon I'm sorry for the over of your manga! 😣 1y
Purrsistently @violetmoon I haven‘t watched yet, but I plan to! 1y

4.5 stars. I can already tell I am going to LOVE this series! This manga sure comes out of the gate with a kick! I've laughed, I've almost cried, and I can't wait to pick up volume 2! Not only is the art style stunning, the story is magnificent. We are learning about our world at a good pace that doesn't feel like info dumping, while slowly getting to know our characters as well. I'm loving it so much already. #manga #mangalover #mangaseries

MarriedtoMrT Looks good! 1y

How cute! I already love this one and can‘t wait to read the next. Elias is definitely not what I expected and I love the way the world is set up. I‘m curious to see how Chise (the MC) evolves because she‘s a little lacking in personality at times but I still enjoy her. Definitely continuing on!

It's been awhile since I've read any manga and this was a great one to get me back into it. Lovely art and an engaging storyline and characters. I've got holds on the next four volumes at the library! I believe this is an anime as well? Has anyone watched it? What did you think?
