ima ichiko shikigami

(no subject)

Yay hurray, have finished Ima Ichiko's Cloud Slayer. No furigana and I only had to look up a couple of words. Progress at last.

I'll admit there's usually some preliminary difficulty whenever I start in on an Ima Ichiko manga, but that's cause she likes to confuse. (I confess to still not quite getting the title story. *Which* youki is 'that youki', for crissake?) However the WTFery of Cloud Slayer was largely dispelled by reading the prequel, so it turned into a solid satisfying read. Especially when the predictable comedy in the first story did a fish-flip and went serious. And then there was the afterword which is yet another reason Why I Love Ima Ichiko. Collapse )
