Fostine, by Chieko Hara

Fostine Vol. 4Fostine Vol. 4 by Chieko Hara
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

What stroke me most of this story is surely the energy that the protagonist is constantly irradiating.
Folie is a gypsy, but since from the very beginning it is clear that she has something different and, in fact, her destiny will be to not follow the gypsy path for very long.
There are clear hints on how the main points of the plot will develop and that makes the story a bit trivial and lacking some good twist. But possibly, it is also like this since this is an extremely classical shojo manga.
The drawings are amazing and that is in perfect style with what we know Chieko Hara can do, but the lack of originality also in how the characters develop makes this manga less mordant then one could wish.
If it was not for the fact that it is a Chieko Hara's work, one could think that it is absolutely ok to not purchase it!
