Koronde Pokkle, by Yumiko Igarashi

Koronde pokkle vol.3Koronde pokkle vol.3 by Yumiko Igarashi
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Of course the most remarkable aspect of Koronde pokkle are the drawings. When you see Igarashi's name on something you know that you will get that granted.
But for how pleasant the drawings are, the story lacks some deepness and a hunch of realism.
We know that most of the shojo portrays young girls living experiences that more mature ones would instead live, but I think it would be enough for this specific manga to change the target from "junior high school" to "high school". I find it so absurd to see a girl around 11-12 planning to open a shop and achieving that by giving love suggestions to her classmates!
However, a dream is a dream and that is the main spark for which the characters are fighting and it is clear that without a goal in life, one can't get that far away.
As in all the most classical shojo, also the characters that were creating some obstacles, turn out to be good and finally find their own path, that happening in parallel with the main character finding happiness.
