Manga Review: Ann Cassandra


Author: Hifumishi Gorou, Amashii Gumi
Release: Monthly
Status: Finished
Genre: Fantasy, Shonen, Comedy
Art: A
Originality: S
Story: A
Characters: S
Humor: A
Action: S

Impression: This is about a pair of teenagers who meet and team up to break prophecies that tell off oncoming disasters. One is an odd accident prone boy whose death has been predicted to happen 3 years after the two meet while the other is a girl who can see into the future but marks her ability as curse. After having met the boy called Banjou, Bekku starts to see her ability in a new light, one where she can use it to help others that will be dragged down into misfortune should she leave them alone. This is a short but exciting manga that doesn't waste a single page in telling its story. The art style really fits the way the story is told and really brings out the intensity you should feel in a climax. The characters are all incredibly fun to watch and the jokes inside are quite refreshing to see. It's really rare to see a manga finish its story so satisfyingly good in so few chapters. The pacing is incredibly fast after the setup is all done and because it all finishes in eight chapters it's perfect for a 6 episode OVA series. The only problem that I have with this story is obviously the lack of more chapters for this series. In my opinion, this is a must-read for manga lovers.
