MangaCast Review: The Name of the Flower, vol. 2
Head on over to MangaCast, a manga news and reviews website, to read my latest review of The Name of the Flower, vol. 2. Here's an excerpt:
A few years ago, Chouko’s parents died in a tragic accident, rendering her mute. After being shuffled around to various relatives, she settled in with her father’s cousin, Kei, who also happens to be a popular, yet reclusive, author. Since then, her voice has returned and she leads a normal, if shy, life. Now in her second year of college, Chouko finds herself falling ever deeply in love with Kei. ... After a slow start, The Name of the Flower picks up a bit more in this volume with the introduction of several new characters, a mysterious woman from Kei’s past and a developing love triangle.
To see more about what I thought of this quiet and seemingly tragic shojo manga, head over and read my review now! The Name of the Flower is available in the U.S. from CMX.
