Miss Reader

Every book is a new journey to embark on. I mainly read romances, but I dabble in other genres too.

Kannagi Volume 1

Kannagi: Crazy Shrine Maidens, Vol. 1 - Eri Takenashi

This manga... I sort of liked it. The translator's notes at the end stated that this manga is heavily influenced by Shintoism, the native religion of Japan, which I'm not that familiar with, but I'm glad I read the notes as I read the story, because it helped me appreciate the manga more. I think you also have to be familiar with Japanese pop culture too in order to really understand why a goddess would want to be a pop idol.

Anyway, I'm interested to see where this is going. I liked the characters, and the story picked up the pace a little towards the end. The author uses a very clean and simple style for the art, which I found pleasing to look at.

Edit 7/18/12: I decided that I won't be continuing this series since I don't feel the need to. And I knocked my rating from three stars to two.
