Fluffy, Fluffy Cinnamoroll 2

Yumi Tsukirino / Chisato Seki – Viz – 2012 – 5 volumes

Again, this series is likely intended for a very early reader, as the stories are short and the concepts are very basic. Most of what goes on in this volume are “attacks” from a nefarious cloud that the group of puppy friends has to drive off. They also eat a lot of sweets and go on little adventures to find treasures, like a clock that stops time when it stops, or the key to Cinnamoroll’s treasure chest. One story even has them visiting Cinnamoroll’s unicorn friends.

Some of the concepts are cute and a little fun. The key to the treasure chest is contained in the roots of a flower that only blooms at night, and in order to find the right one, the friends have to answer riddles (which are very easy questions about the other stories in this volume). The story about a clock that can stop time when its gears are jammed is also kind of cute. I also have a fondness for the story where the group gets to go see unicorns.

Overall though, this and Happy Happy Clover are my least favorite of the VizKids books I’ve read. There’s not a whole lot to them, and again, while they’re intended for the very young, there’s not a whole lot here to entertain anyone who can handle an even slightly more challenging read.

There was one panel where a really cute bear sneers though, which I was entertained by.

I would recommend the Pokemon manga, which is a solid and entertaining read for younger readers, or the series Leave it to Pet. Both of those are a lot of fun. This one’s cute, and might be good especially for very young girls that are into sweets and flowers and whatnot. It’s fairly gender-neutral, but probably leans more towards little girls. It is a Sanrio character, after all.
