Reviews - What do customers think about Walkin' Butterfly Volume 2 (Walkin' Butterfly)?

Not rosy but Real  May 23, 2008
This series is indeed refreshing. I love the fact that Michiko is STILL struggling and didn't become a success overnight. I know lots of manga fans still want candy covered storyline, but I prefer the series of hardships and personal growth that lead to a nice ending. ^_^
Refreshingly honest!  Apr 30, 2008
I'm a little skittish about series that start with such a strong first volume. Many of them start off strong, only to fall to the usual manga cliches, such as "she's no good, but a small amount of training turns her into the best". I was incredibly pleased to discover that not only does that not happen in this series, but the main character has to go through an enormous amount of training just to be halfway decent enough to do the lowest ranking jobs in the modeling world. Another wonderful addition to this manga is Michiko's manager, Kyo. She's just as gritty as the rest of the cast, and even better yet is that while she's willing enough to teach Michiko, she's not going to hold her hand throughout the entire proceedings. Also in this volume you begin to see more of Mihara (the designer) & how he started to become the person you see in the first volume.

I can honestly say that if the next two volumes keep up the same pace, this is one series that I'll collect to it's finish. Again, it's just so refreshing to see an "I wanna be a..." manga where the main heroine has to actually work for what she wants & doesn't have any sort of special or magical treatment b/c she's the lead character. While such mangas are great to read, sometimes you just want to read something a little more realistic.
The Struggle Continues  Mar 18, 2008
Walkin' Butterfly: Volume 2 continues with Michiko's struggle to acquire her new-found dream of being a model. I really like the fact that Michiko is not somehow unexpectedly talented. It's refreshing to see her continually battle with not only getting gigs, but with her own sense of determination. She at times is as focused as an arrow headed for its target, while at other times seems to get depresses and want to climb into a hole. This aspect leads to such great storytelling for this volume as Michiko tries to live her dream.
