While it took me a while to finish this due to my exams, I definitely did enjoy it.
I’ve always loved myths and fables, so of course I couldn’t miss the opportunity to read this. The stories themselves were all rather short, and I would have liked if some of them had been a little longer, but they are fables and those are often very short – and their length didn’t hurt the stories at all, I was just curious to see what they would have been like had they been longer.
As for the new take on these myths, I enjoyed it very much. They were all quite humorous and it was nice to read these cute little stories in between my exams. I also very much liked that they were all Asian myths, as I unfortunately haven’t read many of those yet.
The art differed a lot (as would be expected since the stories were drawn by different people) and while there were a few stories whose art I didn’t like that much (none of them were bad, it’s just a question of preference) I quite enjoyed the art of the majority of the stories.
So if you are looking for something funny and happy to read and are interested in the myths and fables of Asia I would definitely recommend giving this a chance!
