It's a freaking mess

This story is horrible in so many ways. I can't help but agree with scorcher to a great extent. This is not a story that can drag you in and make you feel immersed. It's a piece of shit manga that can't even get the readers feeling anything for it.

One of the main issues is the atrociously mismatched art and story. The characters expressions are devoid of life and they all feel like dolls without any emotions at all. The fact that it's supposed to be a serious story yet employs the kind of dolly cutesy art that you'd expect in a children's shoujo manga makes me sick. Like the first chapter where someone is suddenly killed by a psycho sister and has to be buried by the mc after the mc kills the sister in question after getting stabbed. All this is showed with art that is both rigid, truly childish and overly cute.

By the way, this should be a shoujo story, because there's no way whatsoever that this is written with males in mind. I also want to add that this author shouldn't write anything serious like this unless she gets a grip on her own art, changes it to something a little bit more fitting and learns to draw proper emotions and expressions so that the characters can feel real and the readers be immersed. Even to the very end, it was disappointing and unfulfilling, showing and telling nothing(it's not purely an issue with the art, the story is also stupid and childish and the jokes are so dry they make the desert appear lush).

The people who rates this highly are assuredly young females. Older people wouldn't care for something so childish and unfitting. As for males, I doubt there's any in here unless they're kids and even then they were probably lured in by the shounen tag. It's absolutely astounding how this manga, this insult to every good manga out there, is so highly rated. 8/10 to 8.5/10 in rating? Give me a break. Even a generous rating should be 6-7/10.

The Pros vs the Cons.

This what happens when the only people who rate a manga are people who actually like the manga. Since there isn't anything to speak for the other side, I'll add a little of my own.

First off, the art simply doesn't match the story. They're going for a serious story and yet they use the innocent Moe art. On top of that, the story is told from a sympathetic point of view. Meaning that during the entire time I'm reading, I'm fully aware that it is just a fictional story. Rather than the story being draw out to reality or me getting pulled into the story, I'm just simply reading a fictional story detached to reality and myself.

This story lacks the ability to draw the readers into its world and fail to make a connection between the story to the audience. If anything, this manga strongly reminds me of Pandora Hearts which utilize the same gothic theme yet still has the element of Moe. A fantasy story that is just a story and nothing more.

Reflecting on Time

This manga truly has a literary quality about it, its primary theme being the passage of time and the position of ephemeral existences in a world with time, including the resulting complications. Rather than a moral, Majo no Shinzou discusses its themes, getting quite deep at times,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
from the relation of past and present to the impossibility of immortality.
All the characters are engaging (even single-chapter side characters), the pace is fitting, the art is gorgeous, the humour is well-suited, and the plot and its development all fall in place seamlessly. In short, all the elements of this tale come together harmoniously. The ending might seem a bit unresolved, however, any other ending would not close the story half as well. The only truly loose end did not occur to me until thinking about the manga several months later, and, as far as story compostion goes, I completely understand why it was left that way (it's slightly irksome, and I would appreciate an extra addressing it, but that's all). The end result is truly worth reading.

I can't handle how adorable the main character is

It's too much, it's simply too much how freaking cute she is. I just wanna squeeze her so tight! Just like monkry says, she's very gentle and unassuming-looking, but still capable.

Ahhh if i could, I wanna give this one score: 12/10 ...

I really really like the main chara, a loli, yeah, but she always kind of radiating sad and lonely aura, and as a tragedy-lover, I like it. She's so calm, so cool, but when it's needed, she could be ferocious.
And the story so far is pleasing me. Heartwarming, so touching... yet there's a glimpse of sadness.

The artwork. Beautiful. Gentle. Warm. Soothes my eyes, so much, and kind of... hmmm... warms my heart... I've said that the main chara kind of radiating sad aura, and IMO, it's the very work of the artwork. Arrrggghhhhh the artwork is very, very, very.... enchanting

I like loli, I like tragedy, I like beautiful artwork, I love good story!
