Natsuna Kawase – CMX – 2010 – 3 volumes

I reviewed this for the weekly Manga Minis column at the Manga Recon, so you can check it out over there.

Cute stuff, but pretty middle-of-the-road.  I liked it well enough to pick up the third volume and finish the series off, but I think the author’s other series, Lapis Lazuli Crown, is better.  To be fair, I think Tale of an Unknown Country is her first work, and it’s pretty good for being a first effort.

Natsuna Kawase – CMX – 2009 -3 volumes

I reviewed this for Manga Recon, so you can check out my review over there.

I don’t have a lot to say about it aside from what I wrote in the review.  I kind of hated it while I read it, but as I thought about it more and more while I was writing, I realized it had a lot of good points and was just meant for younger lasses than myself.  It’s not spectacular, and there are a lot of other things I’d rather be reading, but it does a fair job.
