Manga Review: Venus Capriccio

I’m not a fan of Shoujo manga but I’m a fan of Nishikata, Mai. She’s one of the best Shoujo mangak I’ve read for so far. The thing I enjoyed most about Venus Capriccio is that the events are pretty unique and the whole story doesn’t resemble any other Shoujo manga I’ve read before. There was always something that surprised me there. Also I love the fact that it was about music. I wish it was turned into an anime so I could hear the music. Still yet I felt like I heard the music due to the way it was described. I highly recommend this manga. Its a delightful read and totally worth the time.

Overall Rate: 8/10
