Review for complete seriesIan claims to see fairies yet it only earns him a reputation of being a liar His friend Rin is the only one who believes in Ian's stories But there seems to be another soul that resides inside his body who is now bent on ruining Ian's life Soon he loses both his father Rin and even his body now he needs the help of the fairies he's seen for all his life The biggest problem with Fairy Cube has is either that it's far too short or that it tries to do too much with the little space given As is typical for Kaori Yuki this story puts a dark twist on fairies and delivers yet another macabre story There are enough plot points to create a series trice as long than it actually is As a result it's a rather hard to follow story that jumps from one focus to the next leaving many things unclear or simply doesn't satisfyIan is a nice enough main character although nothing about him seemed overly memorable Nonetheless he is the one character where we learn the most of Although I love how Kaori Yuki usually gives a backstory to most of her characters and makes sure they are all involved it was simply too much in this particular work She tries to have everyone's story and tragic fates included yet because there is so much of it it's not easy to connect to the characters and I feel as though there wasn't any closure for most of the cast For some I still don't understand what their motives were or what happened to them in the endIt is certainly an interesting take on fairies and well worth to have a look at if one likes Kaori Yuki's works but it is definitely not her most refined story which is a real shame The story telling is inexpert very jumbled with some confused perspective There's little to no investment of the reader into the characters i have barely any sympathy for any of them Will probably not read future volumes Ok the second half was far superior to the first half Despite the confusing and poorly handled character and theme introductions the book does go through some interesting twists and conflicts There's hardly any new ground here but I'm interested enough that I'll be borrowing the next couple volumes and reading through them Normally I really like Kaori Yuki's work This is just a mess It's confusing as heck at the beginning and you have no idea what is going on And it's not even a case of 'lets throw them in the middle of an action scene and then do backstory'The drawings usually enough to make up for it aren't that great they're very 'busy' and mundane for Yuki's usual style I'm not impressed I couldn't even make it halfway through this first volumeSkip it I love Kaori Yuki's style This has great backgrounds and plenty of cute characters The story as usual from her is a dark gothic tale This one has a good bit of love thrown in I do like Rin and Ian's relationship as you can see how they care about each other I am rather interested to see where this all goes This manga is ridiculous Basically every character with than one scene gets a TRAGIC BACKSTORY there are way too many for a series with only three volumes maybe it would work with 5? Full of the usual Kaori Yuki tropes fucked up families sanity issues obsessive love unusual gender presentation wings homoerotic way than subtext The melodrama is palpableObviously I adore itMy only serious issue was that the ending was rather confusing I actually had to reread to understand what even happened And as Kaori Yuki works are prone to the pacing is off with way too much story crammed in to too short a storyNote this review applies to the complete series all three volumes This could have had better world building pacing of story Everything happens to fast but I understand it I’m here for it Besides I specifically picked this up because it’s such a short series only three volumes long I'm a bit confused with this My feeling about this manga could change as I read the series I can't believe I didn't have this on here already I was obsessed with Ainsel as a kid A supernatural trilogy Fairy Cube is a 2005 2006 comic from Japanese gothic horror ueen Kaori Yuki Following childhood friends Ian and Rin Ian who has been able to see fairies since he was young becomes possessed by a gecko spirit and subseuently involved in much larger events threatening the worldA switch from her longer works Fairy Cube can serve as a low investment into the comics of Kaori Yuki However due to the short length of the series characters often offer a lot of dialogue exposition instead of natural progression in presenting events or backstory At one point it’s even acknowledged how talkative a character is after basically a uick info dump Titles from Kaori Yuki also freuently reuire a good list of content warnings blood child abuse child murder csa parental death sexual assault since her characters do not inhabit safe or simple worlds While the supernatural is at the heart of this story Fairy Cube has its share of human monsters to provide heavy material too Chocked full with references from Celtic mythology and foreign names Fairy Cube can be a challenge in translating or for readers It helps to know a bit about such folklore as terms and names come up freuently The English edition in 2008 with the first chapter debuting as a preview in the April issue of Shojo Beat Magazine from VIZ and translated by Gemma Collinge adaptation by Kristina Blachere and touch up and lettering by James Gaubatz has a little variance as well Names are a pet peeve of mine since people come up with interesting variations in either spelling or pronunciation for my own One character has the first name エリヤ another way to spell Elijah the Shojo Beat choice of Eriya is maybe a little curious for a British boy whose grandmother and guardian though residing in Japan hails from a different island nation Incidentally in the French Edition from Tonkam Shojo his name is Eliah In Japan there also is the author Elia Taniguchi Elia being a variant of Elias Elijah etc who among other works published a vintage photo book called Forever Fairy in the 90s around popular aesthetics of goddesses and nymphs Moreover as anyone familiar with works of Kaori Yuki knows nor is this the only time she might use a name that has religious or spiritual connections Sometimes it’s exactly what’s she is going for but it’s also easy since so many names are like that in 2018 six of the top 10 names for boys in the US for example and Elijah is a popular one on both sides of the pond For just this series several characters have names which can be related in one way or another back to such or are obvious as another character is named Isaiah As a fan I feel Kaori Yuki has a real sweet spot about length when it comes to her comics Longer titles can be truly epic my favourite work by her is the Earl Cain Series and the shortest also so memorable Fairy Cube may suffer some a bit from being neither Nevertheless it is still a very rich and attractive comic showcasing some of the dark signature style of its creator The summary for this manga does nothing for the story and that goes for the one on the back cover too This is so much than a boy visiting a fairy world to gain power and rid the world of an evil Tokage who the summary doesn't even explain Here's what's really going on and it's a storyline I'm pretty sure can only be handled by Kaori YukiIan has been able to see fairies since he was little and he's pretty sure it's because of his mother She left him and his father when he was little leaving his father uite bitter Ian is also convinced that she was a fairy What else would explain his ability to see them and the wing shaped birthmarks on his back? Still at a young age he befriends a girl named Rin and he is able to show her a glimpse of this fairy world She instantly loves it the only person Ian feels he can trust with his secret They vow to go to this world together in the future But Rin moves away and Ian's father's mood only gets worse as the years go by Ian doesn't get off much better because his other self is now using others to torment him Tokage who has green hair and red eyes like his mother can possess other people His mischief is bad timing with a string of murders in which people's backs are flayed open with blood spurts like wings Dubbed the fairy murders Ian's father is even annoyed with his son's sight and worries he has something to do with it He even burns the birthmarks on Ian's back to destory the image of the wings When Rin returns and reconnects with Ian things start to look a little brighter that's until Tokage takes his final step possess Ian's father and uses him to stab Ian in the back literally Now Tokage has taken over Ian's body and Ian's soul is trapped in limbo accompanied by a fairy named Ainsel and her master Kaito the only two who are able to see him They offer a way for him to gain a human body again to take revenge on Tokage and rescue Rin from the evil spirit's clutches because nobody realizes Ian is no longer Ian Thus the journey beginsI loved this dark beginning I wish it lasted longer honestly It was brilliant and creepy something Yuki thrives on and don't let Fairies get in your way Sure they're magical and pretty and all fairies are supposed to be But they don't make the story froo froo Ainsel is a vessel of power and her teaming up with Ian will only help his revenge reach its goal But people who make deals with Fairies cannot always handle the power that comes with it We'll have to wait and see who will rise and who will explode from the pressure with wings of blood
