Manga Review: Arcana Vol 4

Things are starting to heat up in this manga series Arcana. With Volume 4, we find Inez starting to wonder about her feelings for Yulan and Kyrette.

Manga Review: Arcana Vol 1

The first thing I noticed about this series was the somewhat old school illustrations, where the men seem prettier than the women. Although I wasn't a fan of the graphics right off, I felt myself getting used to is as I read on. I can't seem to resist a high fantasy when it comes to manga.
