I don't know what to say about Kiraboshi Dial by Natsume Isaku. I like it, but don't love it. It's about a doctor who goes to a small village and meets the very nice villagers and a very odd rich guy who likes to pay everybody for everything. The doctor and the rich guy both have their own problems that come out and are sort of resolved in their interactions. The art is pretty as always (love the not-very-graphic sex scenes as usual), but the story and the characters just didn't sparkle. I didn't find anyone super adorable at any point like I usually do in Natsume-sensei's stuff....
I listened to the cd drama hoping it'd make me love the manga, but I found it lacking. I think this is a story that needs the visuals to make it work. The voice actors were excellent (esp the rich guy!), but they couldn't make up for the fact that I wanted to see what was going on. I felt frustrated more than anything.
One of my favorite scenes: Rich guy takes doctor to see the stars...
And doctor is stunned.
I approve of glasses! Esp these. So interi. XD;
From the afterward: Doctor has rich guy try on his coat and glasses and finds that they suit rich guy quite well.
I recently purchased and read "Tight rope" by the same author, and the characters look a loooot alike, even the random!secondary guy. I guess the story will have its similarities too. It happens a lot in works from the same author. The stars scene is very nice!
Yeah, the characters do look quite alike in all her manga. But I like her art and I usually like her characters so I'm all good. Have you read "Doushiyoumonai keredo?" That's my favorite manga by her BY FAR.
