Maga-Tsuki: Volume 1

If you missed Oh! My Goddess the first time around, you might be interested to know that Maga-Tsuki tells almost exactly the same story. Okay, that’s a little bit harsh, because Maga-Tsuki cleverly throws OMG’s premise on its head – instead of our shiftless male protagonist (in this case, named Yasuke) wishing for a goddess, this time he’s ‘cursed’ with one – and his punishment is to make her happy.

Throw in a childhood crush – Akari – to whom Yasuke was just about to confess his feelings, a spiteful older sister who is the shrine maiden, and another quirk (Yasuke will die if he is separated from his new goddess chum) and you have a fairly standard set-up for some slightly risqué slapstick comedy. It’s cute, it’s a bit wacky, and overall, it’s harmless fun.

A familiar set-up leads to some classic slapstick manga fun.
SCORE: 3/5
