Manga Review: Over the Rainbow by Keiko Honda

Over the RainbowOver the Rainbow

by Keiko Honda

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The story is nice, and definitely keeps the pace of a Honda Keiko manga. The art is airy & beautiful. I believe my only concern is the translation.

There are some understandable translation hiccups. Also, the moment that the protagonist remembers who she is there is a confusing change of pace as though several chapters were cut from the story.

But still, not that bad considering it is a one-shot (which doesn’t normally allow for much explanation). And it is an early translation at the beginning of the boom of manga popularity in the West (which are frequently found riddled with translation issues).
