Name: Koori-hime Kitan (氷姫奇譚)
Author: Kawashita Mizuki
And this is the entry for the “Read a one-shot” entry XD at first I wanted to add Akiiro Bousou Biyori from the same author but that one shot was only 8 pages long >.> so I changed into this one XD (yes, it’s the author of Ichigo 100% XD)
Doujima Kenji and his friends decide to spend their winter vacation doing a reseach on ghost but many of his friends have other things do to at the end (going to Hawaii with the family, spend Christmas with their girlfriends…). Fortunately (or not) for him, he finds himself with Takamine Karen, a cold girl that he likes. And here our ghost story begins.
Since it’s really a short story I won’t write more XD
The characters don’t change really much since it’s only a story about an event but Doujima is well developed. (We can’t say the same of Takamine because for most of the story she “sleeps”).
About the art… I can’t say really much. I like this style. The characters and the landscape are really detailed and there’s a good use of the screen tones in every page. A great work so in every panel it’s nice looking at the drawings.
My rating: 8/10
There’s not much to talk about the story since it’s really simple… but I liked it. It’s simple but it’s not boring and it’s interesting to read. Nothing epic but for being a one-shot it’s good.
And it was funny how at the end of the story Takamine talked about her being saved but that she don’t remember anything XDDD (she was possessed by a ghost for the entire manga XDDD)
