This week for Sensate Saturday I’ve got another One-shot! It’s Koakumagic by Ichikawa Shou!

Plot Synopsis: Himari is a beautiful model that is a little too honest, and therefore making her friendless. She only wishes that she had friends that can like her for who she is. One day she meets a cute boy and as per usual, became a bit too honest with him…

Plot: This being a One-shot it was short, sweet and pretty much straight to the point. I really enjoyed this quick One-shot. Koakumagic wasn’t super amazing, but it could probably easily be serialized and do pretty well.

Characters: Himari is really blunt, which is a quality I admire in people quite a bit. Even if it gets them into trouble I still appreciate it. Kanata on the other hand is a real teaser, and I have to admit I really liked him as a Male Lead. These two lead characters could easily allow this to become a full series in the future. Who knows if it’ll happen, but I’ll be hopeful for it.

Art: The art is great, but not quite Shueisha level work.

Overall: This a quick read who want a fun little romance to read.

For those who like: One-shots, Romance, Drama, Fashion Modeling, Slice of Life, Good Plot, Fantastic Lead Characters, Great Artwork.

Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above.
