Enchanter, Vol. 5
By Izumi Kawachi
Digital Manga Publishing

Review by Tom Good

My personal rule of thumb for distinguishing good artists from great artists is this: I might like the work of a good artist a lot, but with a great artist, that appreciation is always stained with some degree of jealousy and annoyance at not being able to create such things myself.

Let's start with the front cover. This cover art contains an intriguing detail: the character Kimura has two different colored eyes, one brown and one blue. This is an unusual but real trait called heterochromia. The coloring here must be deliberate since it also occurs on the back cover of volume 6. Whether or not the reader notices this at a conscious level, in some way this detail marks the character and the story as special. [more]
