I'm generally a fan of Tanemura's work, so I might have to check this out. It sounds like a take on magical girls that smooths over some of the problems I have, like the virtually unchanged appearance after transforming, and action scenes that basically boil down to a single magic attack by the protagonist.

(also, you might want to give this another proof-read. I noticed a few typos and incomplete sentences Confused)

Bought all the CMX volumes of this last year after running across the first volume in a used bookstore. Definitely satisfies that Magical Girl Itch I sometimes get. Although it gets a little loose with its historical accuracy* with Joan of Arc late in the series.... but I guess I'll forgive it that because it's a fun read anyway. I've tried to read Arina Tanemura's work before, but the only other one I actually liked was Full Moon, so this came as a pleasant surprise.


* Am I really complaining about historical accuracy in a magical girl series? Shocked

I purchased the full series back when CMX first released it. Frankly, I thought the translation was fine. I see no other reason to actually purchase a new set.

Being the massive Tanemura fan that I am (to emphasise, whenever Tanemura is brought up I tend to bring up that her work is basically the only manga I still bother myself with reading outside of specific-and-previously-read works I hold close to my heart/childhood) I will be sure to pick these releases up as I'm ashamed to say I've yet to read one of her biggest works Embarassed

What do they mean "Chiaki looks very bug-like"? o_O
How do you make a bishounen look like a bug?
