Description
From Storm in Heaven:
Meet the Urumas, a slightly dysfunctional family of four sorcerers. Mom, being the most powerful sorceress around, works away from home keeping the world safe. Dad picks up the slack and takes care of the family. Except when he's out, which is when the older brother Jin finds himself in the unenviable position of keeping tabs on his sister Ran. Ran, the youngest, is a willful girl with too much power and too little wisdom. Let's take a look at Ran's everyday misadventures, shall we?

despite the "death of many crows". The central notion, a family of people with VERY great powers, and their actions and impacts in the society around them, is played out with amazing creativity. And the art is just wonderful.

As for the evil rich guy whom the Main Girl becomes enamored of...well, something like that is almost inevitable once it is established that she can look indistinguishable from a fully-developed teenager, something like that becomes almost inevitable unless her family keeps her locked up in the house. In addition, that guy plays an irreplaceable part in the story. It is a melodrama, and every melodrama must have a villain. Without one, any story told of this powerful family would soon grow boring (It would be just a string of demonstrations of their overwhelming power).

Conflict is essential to good storytelling, and the more powerful the hero or heroes are, the more powerful and bad the villain has to be.

The characters: they are not annoying, the mangaka draws them in a really pretty form. I like all of the characters.

The story: omg, i love the story it has the girly touch but at the same time is kinda dramatic. Because we have a girl who wants to grow up fast but she keeps the innocence so, there...that's it. i won't say spoilers but it's not a pedo manga, truat me!

This was really a manga with a lot of highs and lows for me. Let me just say first that I liked the second half way more than the first half, though there is undoubtedly a charm throughout the whole story. The biggest strength of this manga is by far the art, Irie does a fantastic job bringing every panel to life and since our characters can use magic that means there's all sorts of fantastic looking sequences. For the most part the characters are great as well, and I really liked the developing relationship between Hibi and Ran.

So, elephant in the room. Outarou was the worst and he kind of ruined the early manga. Really the problem, is that I think I'm supposed to find the scenes with him and Ran charming or romantic. Nothing could be further from the truth though, almost every scene with Outarou in it was just painful. I mean even if you ignore the fact that Ran is even younger than she looks, he STILL acknowledges that he's too old for her and goes after her with gusto anyhow. Even after he finds out she's actually 10 he doesn't even slow down, just keeps sticking his tongue down that throat. It's creepy as heck.

And honestly if he was the main love interest I woulda dropped this before the end more than likely


Using magic in your story is a double edged sword. On one hand, it allows for fantastic visuals and some very creative scenarios. On the other hand there's a whole lot of "uh, because it's magic" going on in the story. Magic is cool and all buy it does let the author be kind of lazy with the storytelling as a whole.


Three quick points:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
1. They don't even explain the main antagonist of the series until it's been defeated. What the hell? It really felt like they should have explained it sooner
2. I didn't cry when Outarou died, I laughed because my dreams had come true
3. I was kinda hoping for just a bit more of Hibi and Ran in the ending. Heck, more of them overall. Sometimes I think that if most Outarou scene was replaced with Hibi scenes this would be a better manga.


Overall I still give the whole thing an 8/10. Despite the flaws and the fact that I hated Outarou this was still an enjoyable manga once you got past the opening slump.

I really disliked the main relationships between pretty much everyone esp Outarou. It's a shame since I adore the art and inspirations from myths and fairytales. Also keep in mind the MC is only approx elementary schooler so this is going in a weird direction regardless of magical shoes.

A Beautiful and Touching Story

I loved this manga. First, because of the story and characters. Secondly, the art. This story is a wonderful read because it can connect to just about anyone because everyone, at one point or another, has felt the need to grow up quickly. Ran learns that it isn't just about growing up that makes a person, it is the experiences and people that surround you that truly make you the person that you are meant to be.
For me Ran reminds me of my childhood self. Just like her I wanted to be an adult because I thought that the adults had all the fun. I never really appreciated my childhood experiences until I grew up and had time to reflex. So anyone who is still a child at heart, or thinks that being an adult is great read this book. You wont be disappointed

I really love Ran and her transformations... unfortunately I'm one of those people who shipped her with Outaru.... Oh my godddd.... just read it. I don't want to spoil it for you. Anyways, I still like Ran x Hibi and I thought it was a cute ending but just a bit disappointing. I won't give any less than a 10 because I know I absolutely love it, and I hope you do too when you read it.

Beautiful art and wonderful character development. It's a bit difficult to like Ran at first, but as she matures and learns of love and loss, she becomes truly beautiful and endearing.

Normally I hate children characters in manga, 99% of the time they are stupid, think stupid and act stupid. This manga made it reduce by 1% from 100%, first time I admit the stupidity of children as a valid attitude and support Ran (and even Hibi) completely since chapter 1.

Totally worthwhile.

This one has delicious art but the story is subpar.

I know people will argue that the main character is 10 years old so acting like a little brain dead brat is ok. However, It still does not excuse for her extremely idiotic actions which leads to the deaths of many crows and fatal injuries of her own family members.

The author also tried really hard to make Outarou likable while drawing scenes of him being a complete dick to everybody and a creepy pervert to Ran. This puzzles me; why did the author paint him as an asshole if you want us to sympathize with him? My guess is that the author, like many girls, finds bad boys appealing. Bad boys who, for some miraculous reason, will devote to you and you only. Horrible taste if I might say. She did try to salvage his character at the end but a good author should know that cheap writing shot never works.

Oh did I mentioned that Outaro ( a ~ 30 yr old man) still kisses and gropes Ran all over even after he finds out that she's only 10?

This manga was so beautiful and heart warming. I found the storyline choppy sometimes and I really wished the author would have made it just a bit longer. I wanted to see Ran in her prime. I want to see just how much she matured and improved. But the ending was just as good smile Ran x Hibi...so cute it made me tear up T.T such a great read! Give it a try!!!
