Mar 28, Rain Misoa rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Wicked Lovely fans and anyone who loves cute fox faeries!!! Shelves: manga. Man, am I glad I continued on with this series. This volume was a lot better than the first, in my opinion. I thought it was a lot more organized and put together than the last. It seemed more cleaner I know there are times when I am reading manga and it seems to only get worse and worse with each volume. However, with this one, it just went from being okay to something good.
I think there are still some areas that needs improvement on but it is nothing compared to the first volu Man, am I glad I continued on with this series. I think there are still some areas that needs improvement on but it is nothing compared to the first volume. I wonder if maybe Melissa Marr took what was lacking and just worked on that more? Or maybe it was because this volume focused a lot more on my favorite character so I'm just being a tad biased. Either way, I really think this volume was good and I just want to let out a sigh of relief because I thought it was going to suck. XP Melissa Marr did a great job with this volume.
Sometimes I just can't stand the work that she writes. Other times, like this time, I just love it. It's such a strange relationship to have with an author. I usually love an author's work all the way or hate it all the way.

Obviously, that's not the case with Marr. I think she did a lot better with telling the story this time around. Mind you, it still starts off confusing but I think that's the point. Later on in the manga things are revealed to you so you know what's going on. The only thing that I did not like about this volume was that there was a lot of mush towards the beginning of the manga, not enough action. I know some people like having romance in their manga I'm not one of them.
Sure, I can appreciate a good love story, but if that's the only thing that's going on without much else So when all I saw was Rika and Jayce being all lovey-dovey I wanted to hang myself. There was literally nothing happening between those scenes. All the good stuff starts taking off towards the middle of the book, which is better than no having anything happen at all. I just wish it wasn't so forced down your throat. I'm also not a fan on how Marr portrays women more on that later.
Everything else was pretty good, however. The story started to feel like what Wicked Lovely is all about. I quite enjoyed myself with the manga's plot this time a lot more. Xian Nu Studio did it again with it's amazing art! I just really like this art style. It's so cute! Despite the main guys looking like girls still, it's just beautiful!
I noticed that when they were drawing the henchmen of Maili, they looked a lot like men. Maybe it was just the way they were told to draw the male leads Point is, I don't really have any complaints towards the art. I like it. It suits my tastes and I feel it goes well with this type of manga. The scenery is another favorite of mine. I'm like the character designs, especially of the faeries, but the scenery to a lot of the panels are just gorgeous.
I might be the only one who thinks so since a lot of it is wasteland so it's plain and barren I like the simplicity of it all. Just love it! I can't wait to see more art done by this group. Character time! Rika annoys the hell out of me. She's the main character and I will have to deal with her but sometimes I wish I could just smack the stupid out of her. As I said in my previous review, I love that she can fight. She knows how to hold her own when push comes to shove. The only thing that really gets to me about her is how weak she seems to be with men. And this is where I have issues with Marr's portrayal of women.
She doesn't seem to know which guy she wants. Sometimes she wants Jayce, others Sion. There are points where she lets Keenan, the one she has no interest in anymore, get the better of her.

Pathetic much? Girl if you're strong enough to kick some ass, then you are strong enough to not lower yourself to a bloody man. I hate how she seemed to boy hop a lot in this volume. From Jayce to Sion to back again. It was disgusting. I find him to be very bland. I thought he might have improved int his volume but he didn't.
He's nice and all There's just something missing from him.

I don't hate him I just find him boring. Moving on. Maili appeared again! The one with the BEST character design! I just love her look. Her attitude is pretty good, too.

She's a bit of a weakling but that's to be expected. She was created like that. He's just too cute! He's a fox faery for crying out loud! I don't think that's a spoiler seeing as how you can see his ears on the cover of the book. I love his personality a lot!

Just seeing someone have the balls to say that makes me feel really happy. In fact, he tells Rika that he's not good for her because he's not the type to go for long-term relationships. I respect that in a person. He cared enough to let her know instead of doing what Keenan did and played with her emotions. It's probably the only reason why Rika hasn't thrown herself completely at Sion in the first place. Click the Internet Zone.
