I was rather surprised by the singular charm and sweetness of this peaceful, tranquil tale. The inherently boring school-life setting is brought alive by the inclusion of cleverly-executed supernatural elements. Himitsu no Kaidan illustrates the magic of childhood and the unequivocal happiness of being a pure, untainted school-girl with a mind unsoiled by lust, desire or jealousy.

Each chapter encompasses a valuable lesson regarding the importance of enjoying one's girlhood; those oh-so-fleeting and ephemeral years of a woman's life upon which her adult self will one day undoubtedly look back with nostalgia and longing.

The art is simple and sketchy; a style that fits the mood of the manga to perfection.

Recommended for anyone interested in a shoujo manga quite unlike those run-of-the-mill high school romances to which most readers of this demographic are accustomed.

I quite enjoyed what I've read of this. It brought me back to my childhood, especially with chapter two (which included a reference to F.H. Burnett's A Little Princess, a book I absolutely loved when I was young and still think of fondly to this day. As a mostly-shoujo-manga reader, I enjoyed the focus on girls' friendship without all the messiness and drama of romance. This is a sweet story with a peaceful, nostalgic feeling. The art is a little scratchy, but it fits in with and complements the mood of the story.
