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.

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,

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.

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!
