Takatsuki Noboru: Oku-san’s Daily Fantasies

I like Takatsuki’s art, but the stories are usually middle of the road for me. Oku-san’s, in particular, was one that felt like a chore to get through. I’m not saying that it’s bad (I did like most of the closing chapters), but the daily fantasy format–chapters lasting only 10 or so pages and making the same point each time–grates on my nerves. I can probably name on one hand the number of half-hour sitcoms/dramas I was a fan of. I have a strong bias towards continuous, novel-like, stories. I said that to say, don’t be swayed by my score for this title; if you don’t mind this storytelling format or you enjoyed Rokka Sugiura’s Fantasy Paradise, this may be right up your alley.
