I have a review in the most recent installment of On The Shojo Beat over at Manga Recon for volume three of The Magic Touch. I previously reviewed the first volume and unfortunately it’s become less interesting to me as the story has progressed. I still have hope, however, that this series could gather up its perfectly good shojo romance elements and make something better of them.
Also in this column, Michelle reviews volume one of Blackbird, a manga I also found myself enjoying against my better judgement.

Hmmm…I think i’m glad I grabbed Otomrn off the shelves a few months back instead of Magic Touch. MT looked like it could be fun, but also likely to go in all the wrong places.

Yes, you made a good choice, I’d say. I definitely prefer Otomen!
