Upon further investigation, they find a suspicious man taking away cats to an unknown alley. Gisèle decides to investigate further and finds out who the man is without any trouble. An amusing yet calm service providing you with anything you want; at your service by Gisèle Alain!
I read the first volume who was translated by Ki-oon recently. It's friendly but nothing really amazing. Maybe when we know more about the main character past and why she left her family will it deepened.
Just recently caught up with this. I like the art. The story is pretty good. Not amazing though. It's frustrating because it had/has the potential to be exactly the type of series I love. A slow paced slice-of-life with great balance. It's missing something though. It may be the characters. They are likeable enough, but they don't have me especially caring for them. Gisele is warming up to me a bit with her back story, but she's not at the level she should be for the main character. And I think her relationship and interactions with Eric are kind of shallow. There is wasted potential there. All in all, this series leaves me not quite satisfied, but it is enjoyable enough.
