just re-read, it's great, even better than the first time,
i live in the countryside and i really like manga like this, and witchcraft + growing and cooking is surprisingly good
Kind of interesting that I just happened across this webcomic today (not Japanese, sorry) that's, well, all about cooking and witchcraft. Including recipes which is pretty nifty. http://www.balderdashcomic.com/index.php
thanks for the info,
these are true children's literature, a lot better than harry potter!
