Manga review: Kataribe no Risuto

Kataribe no Risuto theme 5Hello there! So this is the last review before my holiday finishes…. Also, I never stockpiled in the end. Maybe I’ll do it this week. MAYBE. I don’t expect it though XD. But the next one is definitely made in time, since I’ll be in a country where EU rules don’t count so don’t have my 4G network and I heard the internet is crappy, so whatever.


Anyways, let’s do review this. It’s been quite a while since I read this, but after reading a little summary from it, I remember again. It’s something that Easy Going Scans translated and I love most of the works they translate. Actually, haven’t looked for it these past few months, but they do have lots of stuff that are really worth reading, so check this group out. Also, check out the author, since I saw the author had a twitter account, though hasn’t been active really.

Anyways, let’s move on.


Kataribe no Risuto theme 6


A watch that controls time, a marble that can find items and a stick of chalk that can kill any human…

The items of the mysterious girl, List of the antiques, all hold their unique magical powers. Without our noticing, they slowly merge into our daily lives.

If you strain your hearing you might discover the mysterious secrets hidden throughout the world. The curtain of this antiques fairy tale finally rises!

Like I said before, Easy Going Scans has lots of good projects they take to translate and release. This is definitely one of them. So I’ll already say I enjoyed this one.

Let’s talk about the art first. It’s so pretty! I mean the covers! If you look at them, you see how cool  The art itself very interesting and very detailed, yet still clean. I really like it. No comment really on it further than that.

The story is nice. I think the interpretations are very interesting and how you put a little twist in it all. I always like how people interpreted myths and fairy tales. I think it’s really making it amusing. The story itself is pretty good, didn’t find any obvious plotholes. Maybe some interpretations are things I’ve already heard of, but I don’t mind it that much. The main story was a bit of a surprise, but also a bit expected at the same time, since I’ve seen plots like these before. I’m not saying it’s bad though, I just saw it already so the surprise wasn’t that big.

The character development is obvious. The growth is typical, but understandable. Not really much to say about it. The flow was nice on the number of chapters, but in the end kind of fast-moving sometimes. But it doesn’t have a lot of chapters and expending it wouldn’t have helped so it’s ok.

In the end, I’ll give it a 7/10. Definitely nice to see fairy tale interpretation and having a goal, but the idea isn’t that original and some things were a bit more meh, but in the end I enjoyed it. Not one of my favourites, but I recommend you read it at least.

And that’s it for this week. The time my next post is, I won’t be able to see anyone liking my posts T_T but I think seeing it later on will make me it’s worth it. Well, until next time! o/
