4 star rating out of 5

A surprisingly bubbly manga. It's very charming and cute.


The premise of a dying girl fulfilling her final wish with magic piqued my curiosity. I thought the death theme would make the whole experience bittersweet, but it's mostly been optimistic and fun, which is a pleasant surprise. Mistuki just sees her waning days as a reason to stop hesitating to fulfill her dream and finally take a step forward. The two shinigami are fun and silly, though their banter isn't anything you haven't seen in other shoujo manga before. This first volume does drop some hints that the series may get much heavier later on, especially when you discover where shinigami come from.

Man does the author love to talk! Every other page has a footnote or sidenote of the author talking about her staff and personal experiences. It's not a bad thing, I love insight from the creators, but I'm not used to authors sharing this much.

I like this series so far. It's lighthearted, but still makes room for serious, heartfelt scenes that don't kill the lighthearted feel.
