A great edition of My Week in Manga, as always! Thank you for your contribution to the Feast. I hope you get a chance to read the rest of Sugar Sugar Rune!

I also enjoyed this edition of “My Week in Manga”.
Sometimes, saying that you hate an artistic work is a much higher compliment than saying that an artistic work is boring. I think this is one of those cases.
I’ve read Happy Mania all the way through, I’ve read part of Flowers and Bees, and I think (though I am not completely sure) that I’ve read the beginning of Sugar Sugar Rune.

Sugar Sugar Rune is still one of my all time favorite manga! It was through SSR that I became a fan of Anno’s work. Thanks for the review!
