While not original, the story could be interesting and fun if it weren't for the characters...
Why does Sumire blush every second? Is this another 50th Shades? She is a 60 year old and yet she acts as if she were twelve...
Why is it kinda obvious she is going to end up with the black hair guy?

The art is ok

I started reading manga again after several years of self-imposed hiatus, and Sumika Sumire reminds me of how much I enjoyed reading manga after all these years.

A promising start of the few scanlated chapters available. Although age transformation is not a new recipe, but the pacing of this manga flows smoothly and realistically even with the supernatural elements. Sumi (and later on Sumire as she transformed) is a well-liked & sensible character, whilst the supporting characters complement the story. I am too lazy (as always) to find the raws, but I am hoping that (and seeing that there are 7 volumes and counting by the time I wrote this review) this is going to be a good read.

- Rated 9/10 based on the available scanlated chapters.

The characters are just so great, though you still could categorize them into the typical types. There's Sumi, the timid protagonist, Rei, the tsundere, and Yuusei, the kind and popular guy in the grade. Even so, their personalities aren't overdone at all and I guess that's why they stand out to me.

The storyline is also well paced though I wish Rei got some more development. The author might have done that on purpose though to make him mysterious. We'll probably find out a lot more later, I'm just impatient lol.

So yeaah, check this out everyone!

I found this series by looking for other works by TAKANASHI Mitsuba sensei since I loved both Crimson Hero as well as Devil Does Exist. As of now (read 2 scanslated chapters and skimmed through raws) the premise seems interesting (although kinda weird lol), but it's the art that's stopped me in the tracks. The art is a far cry from the likes of Crimson Hero and Devil Does Exist! Moreover, the art style seems quite similar to Chihayafuru's... in fact the girl Sumi reminds me of Chihaya, while Mashiro seems quite similar to Mashima Taichi! Does anyone else think so too?
