Manga Review: Kage ni Saku Hana

Summary: In the peaceful period of the early Edo period, people lived in fear of Shadow Beasts that consumed the heart of the people. Exorcists and hunters use their abilities to rid of the beasts, and when a young exorcist named Hibana, puts herself in a reckless battle against the Shadow Beasts, she is rescued by lone Hunter, Tsugumi, causing the beginning of a romantic adventure.

Thoughts: I really liked this story, the characters were amazingly well done despite only existing for three chapters! The world building was there but so much of the story felt unfinished by the end it was mildly disappointing but I still enjoyed it! The art work is pretty and the mood well set without the romance being overwhelming or annoying.There was also a little one-shot in the back that was...interesting. Having nothing to do with the main story I was a little disappointed with it at first. But it was cute and I did enjoy it.

Content: Aside from a few rude jokes, mild language for manga, and some violent fights there's a problem with SPOILERS demon possession but the kind commonly used in Japanese media. These do not take away from the story though so it's a fairly clean story. In the one-shot SPOILERS a young boy (ten or under) is shown to have a crush on a girl well into her teens. While never becoming awkward (I wasn't even sure it was an actual crush till the end) it all depends on how you feel about this stuff. Overall though, a clean story.
