One night, she is caught stealing ingredients for her potions by Lady Hyewon, the new mistress of the Garden. But it turns out Dohwa isn’t the only one with an objective. Lady Hyewon harbors a few terrible secrets of her own.
I know, I know. This review has been done before. However, since I wasn’t the one who wrote it—and now having read the manga myself—I kinda can’t hold back. Let’s just say I have a very strong opinion when it comes to this specific work, so let me just have my release 😉
Sumika, Akio, and Chinatsu are cousins who only meet during the funeral of Sumika’s father. They quickly become friends and end up spending most of their childhood days together.
Though, as time passes, things change. The twins, Akio and Chinatsu, slowly drift apart, while still staying close to Sumika. She, on the other hand, develops feelings for Akio and eventually gets together with him. However, she always knew that their relationship was not supposed to prevail….
So far, so good. The story doesn’t sound too exciting, but it could turn out quite entertaining, to say the least. Now, after having finished reading this, I can’t say it was very exciting or entertaining. First of all, the story simply seemed weird and hard to follow.
Walk Wit Me is a harrowing tale of how the lives passed down to children, from those who are responsible for giving them life, sometimes do nothing to actually allow them to have a fuller, richer life. So they find it better to do so themselves.

During the late 1950’s, in a slowly dying coalmine town, at the foot of a mountain, somewhere remote within the United States, two girls struggling to grasp the purpose that their parents have given them, find greater purpose in one another.

What’s worse is that as the ones who call themselves their parents continue to press that idea down upon them, they have already been convinced that they will die in the coalmine town in much the same way everyone else will.

Since the Manga, or Manhwa, is far from over right now, I still want to use the opportunity and talk about it, so let’s do another “Let’s talk about…”.
It admittedly took me quite a while to continue reading this one, since I stopped right at chapter 10 back when this was the most recent chapter out. After quite a few months had passed, I finally picked it up again, and oh god, I can tell you, being able to read 50+ new chapters of something that amazing is simply the best feeling ever.
Though, let’s start with the actual post now Continue reading
“Well, love between girls is like a fever – it fades with time.” There’s a whole lot of yuri manga with an all-girls school setting out there. Naturally, many of them picture those as a sort-of carefree paradise for young women who love other women. But how many of them do touch the oh-so-delicate topic of such a paradise being only a phase in adolescence? Let’s take a look at Hatsukoi Shimai – a manga that approaches girls’ love in a slightly different way than the majority.

I am late with this one, I have to admit. Though, I luckily found this gem again thanks to it being put as a featured series on the Dynasty Reader.
It didn’t even take me more than one second to decide to reread this short manga again. So after being late for about 6 years, let’s not waste any more time. Here’s my short review~
