the action is nice, not quite angsty enough for me, but it seemed to
show some promise.
i got my hands on it, flipped through, and it looked good enough to
read. however, "the single most iriirtating thing is her accent. "
this is SO very true it hurts. it's the only thing that keeps me from
actually enjoying the manga. it just doesn't seem right when your
brain fits her into a cutsey girl role. when i read her, she was of
the high-pitched-whiney-leech variety of cute, and it just didn't
fly. i have the urge to edit that out and write it as it should be,
but it's too late. she'll forevor be a too-cute-twit in my mind.
