As promised, I’m going to be blogging Mistress Fortune for the next 3 (or 2 really) months (even if I started out late).
Mistress Fortune is only going to be three chapters long. After that, Arina Tanemura is taking a break for a while (I’m guessing somewhere between 2-6 months). She’s worked on a manga for 47 straight months, and if you add in the next two chapters of Mistress Fortune, Arina-sensei will have been working for 49 months straight. Yikes.
This news explains why I thought the first chapter kind of felt like a one-shot. This also probably rules out any chances of an anime adaptation, so all our hopes still lie with ShinKuro.
Also, sorry that this post is so late. I totally spaced out on this until I got my issue of Ribon in the mail.
Kisaki is a fourteen-year-old novice ESPer who is part of a secret organization. She’s in a team with Giniro, a pervy boy that’s the same age as her but has been an ESPer since he was five. Their team is called Mistress Fortune and they are Fortune Tiara and Fortune Quartz respectively. Their organization is fighting agains a race of alien bunnies called Eba. Despite being partners, Kisaki and Giniro know almost nothing about each other because they’re not allowed to exchange information.
Oh yeah…and Kisaki is in love with Giniro.
Thoughts (Sort of)
Okay, because this is so late, and I believe everyone is familiar with my thoughts on the series already, I decided to kind of just point out all the best parts. The blushy moments and the pervy Gin-kun moments!
So here we go! I’m almost positive that I caught all of Gin-kun’s pervy moments, but let’s find out!
lol, Right on page 2, Kisa-chan’s skirt gets lifted up and Gin-kun takes the opportunity to take a picture. He’s a nice healthy boy, isn’t he?
And already, pervy moment number two where we learn about Gin-kun’s fascination with Kisa-chan’s e-cup boobs. He’s so ridiculous.
Though as a side note…why was Kisa-chan talking about arm fat in front of the guy she likes anyway? My arm fat is the last topic I feel like discussing with any boy.
Aww, Gin-kun is so honest…and random. There’s a silent moment so he start thinking about x-ray vision? Then he tells Kisa-chan exactly what he thinks? Oh Gin-kun…I think you’re too honest.
Alright Kisa-chan~! I absolutely love it when a cute girl gets her pervy guy all flustered somehow! Kisa-chan’s cuteness is certainly too cute even for boob-obsessed Gin-kun to ignore. Go for it Kisa-chan!!!
lol, Harem. Gin-kun really is a treat for Arina Tanemura fans, because no one’s really been a perv since Chiaki. It’s not fair. All the over boys got all forward and stuff, but Gin-kun’s the first guy we’ve really had that it’s into all girls since Chiaki. ANd Gin-kun’s even more of a perv! Yay!
(I’m wondering, is it weird that I’m so into pervy guys?)
Okay, how many people caught this on the first time through? Gin-kun looks up Kisa-chan’s skirt and gets bonked in the head. I did. It’s actually what caused me to go, “Ah! I think Gin-kun is a perv!” Aw…subtle pervy-ness and retribution. Awesome.
And okay…are you ready for this? Best moment in the entire chapter!
Yeah! Another point for Kisa-chan!!! And Gin-kun’s being all…tsundere (lol!). “Stupid Kisaki…” Ah! That was so cute! Who else wanted to just hug the both of them? I know I did! Ah! Cute!
But unfortunately the alien bunny ruined the cute moment with yet another pervy moment (though it still made me laugh so it’s okay).
In Gin-kun’s defense…Kisa-chan’s chest in the Fortune Tiara outfit is probably always on his mind.
I’m just glad we got to see this! What’s really on Gin-kun’s mind. Oh yes…I imagine that we’ll be getting more blushy moments in chapter two. And of course, there must be a kiss by chapter three. It is a requirement!!!! Ah~! Looking forward to it!
And finally…one last pervy moment. What does that make…7 total? For a shoujo manga that is very impressive. Though I expect with the plot needing to move in the next chapter the number will go down, but still. Go Gin-kun!
Oh yeah, and now to back-up my claim that Mistress Fortune’s art reminded me of Full Moon which no one seemed to agree with I give you two pictures!
I probably wouldn’t have noticed if it weren’t for Kisaki resembling Full Moon a little in this picture, but this really reminded me of the early chapters of Full Moon. The way the eyes are shaded and the shape of Kisaki’s hair. Also the shapte of her face. It just really reminded me of Full Moon wo Sagashite.
Also, this image reminded me of Full Moon a little too. But that might just be because there were so many crying scenes in Full Moon. I’m not sure.
That aside…I think Kisaki is Arina Tanemura’s best bishoujo because even Mitsuki and Maron couldn’t look this good when they were crying. Yes, Kisaki wins the bishoujo rankings for me. Plus she’s just so cute too! It must the plus of being in such a short series, less drama to take away from the cuteness.
Well…that’s it. Sorry it took so long. I just totally spaced out. At first I was waiting for higher quality raws, but then I just decided to edit the preview raws on Endless Youth & Co. myself (so sorry for the kind of bad quality, I didn’t spend much time on it).
Now…just looking forward to the next chapter~! And this time I’ll do it ASAP.
