Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Deborah Miller
In the first volume of these graphic novels, ordinary high school boy Jin receives a life-changing shock when the statue he carves from a tree comes to life. Not only does the wooden shrine take the shape of a beautiful young girl, but she is actually a goddess who is bent on ridding the world of "impurities." Nagi is indeed a goddess, but by no means a fully-developed, wise one. Thus, Jin must wrestle with trying to live a normal, high school life while dealing with a rather brash supernatural being. In the first volume, Jin and Nagi work their way through some intriguing situations—some humorous, some quite challenging—as Nagi tries to navigate the real world of Western society and Jin seeks to develop his artistic talents. In the second volume, Nagi's second personality, Kannagi, manifests herself, so that Jin now has to cope with two Shinto shrine maidens. Despite the strange happenings that occur after Nagi comes to life, readers will be able to suspend disbelief and enjoy both of these manga tales. Both volumes will be relished by fans of authentic, Japanese manga. Teens unfamiliar with the manga/Anime genre may need encouragement to attempt to read these titles.

This volume is by far better than the first. I rate it four out of five stars, as I really did enjoy this volume. In this novel we are continued to be introduced to Nagi's mysterious sister Zange. Unlike Nagi, Zange's sacred tree has not been cut down. This raises suspicions as to if she is indeed evil, despite her nun-like appearance. Zange has become famous for going around asking people to confess to her and paying them. Like Zange, Nagi has started going to Jin's school. The two goddesses begin competing for power and attention from students and others. Zange, however, also competes for Jin's attention, causing Tsugumi (Jin's friend) to become jealous. There are many funny scenes, with the girls figuring out who can cook for Jin, having jobs as maidens, and even Nagi having her own fan club with silly rules. I recommend this novel to anyone who likes manga. The art has improved from the first one as did the storyline; it flows at a much more reasonable pace.
