Do you enjoy daylight and the great outdoors?
Only when it's sunny
I can see sunlight through the window...
I probably should get out more
I love the outdoors!
I live outside. I don't need a roof
I'm a vampire. Get me out of here.

Charming Tales

Irie knows how to craft interesting stories with a minimal amount of pages, and this collection shows how great she's at thinking up various storylines. They're not all romance-based (clearly her forte). Some lean more into family territory, others are more Medieval Ages-inspired and then you have a few offbeat supernatural ones.

I liked one of the early ones with the spirited girl and the oblivious playboy. Other favorites were the cafe lady who was puzzled at a disheveled man seemingly unfazed by her charms and the 3-chapter tale chronicling a mom taking care of her 3 sons and eventually letting them go.

The storyline's is unique, every chapter is different story, it suited for those who doesn't have much time to read.

The story is consists of short stories manga. I like it because it's not a one shot, and it always have good storyline. For me who works and sometimes doesn't have time to follow new manga with new continous storyline, this one is suited for me, because every chapters have different stories (mostly).

Short stories without the typical narrative. The stories are mostly of everyday occurrences and feelings, they just pull you in with a bit of "magic".
Great art.

I read four of these stories and couldn't figure out what was going on in any of them. "Ran to Haiiro no Sekai", by the same mangaka, was quite understandable and very good, but this one is impenetrable to me. The art is great though.


With more, later reading, I'm beginning to get a handle on the stories, at least the "romantic" ones. They are fascinating in that they seem to take place in a different world than we're used to in manga. And that's especially true of the male characters. Gone are the sexually desperate but hopelessly repressed teenagers of shounen, the etiolated effeminate love muffins of shoujo, and the sex hounds of "smutty" joshi. Instead, we are offered large, very handsome men of unpredictable character. And so far they seem decent. Their being like this opens up whole new possibilities of storytelling, seldom hinted at in the usual kinds of manga.

I'm looking forward to reading the rest.
