Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid v. 2 by coolkyousinnjya

I think this book was a little more tender than I was expecting. The first volume didn't make me feel very highly of it, but for some reason I bought the next one. The mutual feelings that are coming from Kobayashi are welcome, but I think when Erica Friedman at Okazu said this series was reminiscent of Bewitched, I can see that in retrospect. I'm not really sure if I want to continue reading.

I think I've also heard that this author's romances tend to just spiral with a lot of silliness and end up nowhere.

But flipping through the second volume for this review, I’m reminded of the domestic overtones and the real friendliness that developed. From dealing with mutual respect, and trying to learn more about each other, you really did get a sense of progression and growth. There are moments of reflection, and with the addition of Kanna as a child to their twosome, you can enjoy her childish adventures even as she is entirely too self-aware.

There also seem to be the first rumblings of trouble seeping in from the world (dimension?) which Tohru hails from, so it’ll probably something to see in the coming volumes. Especially with the mention of parents and responsibility. Of course, the usual hijinks are sprinkled throughout.

Then again, why does Tohru have such big breasts? Considering Kae has large breasts as well in Kiss Him, Not Me! I shouldn’t really be surprised. Is it fanservice or just mainstream manga?
