"何だろうマダム、いわゆる月のものだろうか" (Madam, what could it be? Is it that "time of the month"?) Howl, from I Wish Upon a Star

The art is very shoujo. It doesn't much look like Howl or Sophie from the Miyazashi movie at all. It's very cute, though. I reminds me of Aoi Hiragi (a Ribon mangaka) and Ai Yazawa mixed up, if that helps anyone any. The inside art is a bit different from the cover. It's a bit more sketchy inside; her faces are really expressive. The cover is the only one I've seen like it. It's a textured pearl; really neat! The pages inside are off-white with BLUE print! Whee! It looks nice!

You can really sink your teeth into this one! It's one nice and long story :) ...there was even a moment where it pulls at your heartstrings and you feel that twinge (you know, that "kyun" feeling!) of sorrow. I really loved it. Oh, and I so want more! It's the first Howl doujinshi that made my heart go kyun! Hey! Heeeyyyy! No, Howl! No eating hearts! *I wish!* (<-tee hee! I wish upon a star...) How would I describe the plot without spoiling it? It's a very shoujo-manga plotline. I guess it'd be honobono-romantic (There is one short, one page gag-comic about the King and Suliman, but that's pretty much all the gag). It focuses on Sophie and her insecuries. There's not that much Howl in it, I feel there's more Kabu...Hmm...then I'll outline the beginning a bit...Sophie is cleaning, and comes upon a stack of old love letters from various girls addressed to Howl...ooh! She doesn't read them though (I would)! Understandably, she's a bit upset and gets insecure. How does Howl fix this? Where does Kabu come in?! Letty?! Water scenes? Oh, you so have to get this one!

Hi! You're not posting any new reviews! Please post if you have the time, I'm still reading them!
Hm, I thought I posted a comment on the Howl ga ippai review but I guess it didn't take.
I got this one too, you're right its really good. I know this is blasphemy to a howlxsophie shipper, but I almost wished that they had broken up in this one, I love tragic romance. When Howl didn't go after Sophie when Kabu came to the house though,that pissed me off, when did Howl become such a wimp. But overall a good one.
Hope you get the time to post some more reviews.
