Really Good!

This is one of my favorites! I keep coming back to it. I feel like both Noriko and Izark grow as the story progresses which is probably why it's one of my favorites. They both learn to accept themselves and although Noriko isn't strong she always tries, she never gives up and just waits to be rescued - it's so refreshing! The romance is more subtle and definitely a slow burn even though you can see the feelings they both have but that just makes it seem more realistic and like it will last unlike lots of manga where they confess even though they don't know or trust each other.

Female lead

I have to say, Noriko is the epitome of damsel in distress, always in danger, is weak, and has no control of the things happening in her life. I usually hate those type of female leads, but she is just so adorable that I find it hard to hate her. She does what she can and I think that is why I like her so much. Yes she can't do much, but she is doing her best and I truthfully can't hate her for that.

There is a lot of meh moments, but also a lot of cute moments that I find I will reread from time to time. I read this back in the yonder days of magic knight rayearth and Fushigi Yuugi, so it was sort of the only decent romantic adventure of a girl who was pulled into another world that was out in my region at the time.

This is such a cute traveling-to-another-world fantasy. The characters are so cute but strong, specially the main ones. I totally fell in love with them, their relationship its truly amazing.
It is really adorable and entertaining, it ends being light vs. dark, but it is really appealing and I recommend it a lot.

Maybe my expectations were too high. I went in thinking this would blow me away because all the reviews seemed to praise it. It started out okay, became cliched, ended okay. Honestly wasn't that remarkable. Then again, I don't expect much from shoujo. The one thing that actually stood out was that Noriko isn't your typical shoujo girl who cries throughout the whole series, having to be saved all the time. Yeah she cries plenty of times and Izark saves her lots of times, but she doesn't stay a weak-willed character. She learns to stand up on her own and finds her own strength which was refreshing. Still, the story was just kind of bland. Meh, 7.

A gem lost in history

The only thing I'm not happy about this manga is that it's over and it's long enough. Please this now, this is one of the fantasy shoujo that many has attempted to create but fail too. I baffled that this manga is looked by fushigi's popularity.

A Masterpiece

You know that feeling when you've just experienced the most epic, memorable story and you're not sure whether you'll ever recover from it or read anything like it again? That's the effect of Kanata Kara/From Far Away. It needs no lengthy explanation or justification - it's simply a beautiful, sweeping masterpiece with a touching love story and heartwarming message at its center.

There's nothing I can complaint about this manga. Many types of travel to another world but I like it best. Noriko is an usual girl, loves cute things, scares of height etc. She is neither a goddess nor a genius. I'm happy to see her change herself little by little.

Liked the characters, the "have to learn the language" part, and the relation of the two main chars, unfortunately as the story moves forward it gets more cliched and the setting being quite common doesn't help. The main thing I didn't like thou is that there are too many "convenient miracles" to call it somehow, enemies having a change of heart, fortunate fantasy occurrences, allies suddenly appearing at the critical time, etc. you get the gist. Also, there are too many constant obstacles, I enjoy a little slice of life even if it's for just a couple of chars, but there is always something to fight or getting in the way and the times where they do have some leeway is just skipped from the story
So yeah I like it and it's a nice read but I don't find it as something special in the shoujo genre as distraughthallelujah says, thou I wouldn't go as far as to call it "unremarkable", just good. Also, unlike distraughthallelujah I wouldn't call Noriko a wimp or weak at all, I'd like to see any of us in similar circumstances. She does what she can with what little power she has and doesn't give up in adversity, that's way harder than fighting when powerful and it takes more courage too.
On v10 so far

I was totally in love with this series in the beginning but after awhile it got too political, not a enough romance (for my taste anyway), and at some point I viewed them more as siblings rather than a couple sad . However its still worth reading its a great storyline and characters are not annoying but likable.

a classic story with impeccable execution

this manga, if just described to you sound like run-of-the-mill good vs evil and light vs darkness kind of manga, with the usual happy go lucky girl and the cool and mysterious guy - and this is right, but in a way it is highly disservice to think of this manga as 'just' this. because the execution in creating a classic tale as this is done perfectly - and it makes you delve into the world seamlessly and you will be enthralled by the charming characters you meet.

i had held on from reading this manga because i held deep prejudice against the cute bumbling girl and cool guy pairing, and i now im stand corrected. it doesnt matter if the character profile is an unimaginative pairing, but its the way they interact with each other and the world that is important. bumbling doesn't mean an irritating girl, being cool and quite doesn't make the character an unpleasant emo. this manga show me that any type of character, as long as handled carefully, can be lovable and charming.

i recommend this to any manga lover. eventhough im not a shoujo reader, this grab me from beginning to the end and i hope others can also experience the enthralling world of kanata kara.
