Ratings & Reviews
Quality from Start to Finish
by Gabrielle -
There is no shortage of quality when it comes to this manga. From the excellent quality pages to the adorable artwork in this 2 in 1 volume. Then on the inside with hilarious, but thought out storytelling with equally adorable characters. This title is a must buy and RightStuf once again delivering it on time and in perfect condition.
Great manga, horrible release
by Unruhe -
Content alone would easily be 4/5. Vol 3 continues the low-drama, sweet silliness of the series while giving some genuine depth and nuance to several characters and slowly growing some relationships.
Unfortunately, this release is rife with problems and errors. It arrived warped, with a "wave" running the entire width and thickness. The first black and white chapters are faded. Additionally, the print doesn't seem to have "set" or taken to the pages correctly. Simply holding the book by its edges resulted in a massive amount of residue on my hands.
Typos and structural errors everywhere. There are multiple points where the word usage does not make any sense. A central character's name is misspelled at one point. A random ] is in a line. Long conversations that span multiple speech bubbles sometimes ignore the typical manga format of right-left, top-bottom, which is jarring.
This release was delayed by two months but none of that time was spent proofreading or doing quality control.
Solid Content, But Distracting Grammatical Errors
by Chris -
I'm going to be a bit in agreement with Unruhe on this. I typically do not write reviews for products on sites that I shop from, but in this instance I felt it necessary to provide the feedback. I have no clue if anyone at Kodansha pays attention, but I'm hoping it will help.
While there were a couple typos/errors in Volume Two (and none so obvious that I can recall in Volume One), Volume Three is rife with words being repeated, words wholly missing, and other grammatical issues. It gives me the impression that this volume was on a tight deadline and didn't get enough time in review. The first chatper's pages are also oddly faded, though I did not notice or have the other issues Unruhe noted.
While the comic continues to be some good escapism, thankfully outside of a school and in an actual workplace, I thought it worth noting these issues in the hopes that Kodansha would see them and perhaps allow Volume 4 to have a bit more time to breathe and catch more of these errors.
A Quality Volume with a Few Mistakes
by Calci -
Volume three is still really funny and the artwork is great. Like the other reviewers have mentioned, there are a few typos here and there. However, In the book I received none of the pages were faded or seemed too light or anything.
