Cherry Magic! Thirty Years of Virginity Can Make You a Wizard?! Volume 6
In Yuu Toyota’s Cherry Magic! Thirty Years of Virginity Can Make You a Wizard?! volume 6, the psychic Adachi has told his boyfriend that he can read his mind. This is an important, adult decision, to be honest with his partner. The need to reveal his secret first arose in volume 4 and drove the conflict in volume 5.
Of course, Adachi was concerned about how Kurosawa would react. However, it doesn’t turn out as Adachi feared. Instead, Kurosawa accepts it, and him, which I found amusing. (And realistic. We’ve all been anxious over something that turned out to go fine.) Now the challenge is one that doesn’t even require the magic power setup — Adachi is being transferred elsewhere for work. How will the new couple deal with separation?
I’m enjoying this as a dating manga. In spite of his ability, Adachi’s nervous and unsure of himself, the kind of character that can be relatable in a relationship. After all, when emotions are concerned, uncertainty is common. Kurosawa is a wonderful guy, who demands honest communication and making decisions together if they’re going to be a couple. That underlying principle is an important one, even for couples that don’t have magic bringing them together.
These two are sweet together, and this is a comfortable read with reasonable conflicts addressed in good time, enough for some drama, but not so Long the reader gets bored with it. Each of the partners have to learn to be more than they are. One has to be comfortable with someone else after years of shyness and uncertainty; the other, while having a perfect image, is willing to be human and emotional. I like them together and taking care of each other, which is why I keep reading the series.
