However, there are also sections (the lake and creatures for example) that do not make sense, but I'm sure there is a larger tapestry that I am unable to see at this reading. I continue to love the art, but the story is not fleshed out enough yet for my tastes.

    I like this volume as much as the previous one. It has soothing calm atmosphere, but at the same time a lot happened in this volume.Shiva is my second favorite kid after Kanna (Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid). If anything bad happens to Shiva...

A young girl named Shiva lives on the other side, in a vacant village with a demonic guardian known only as “Teacher.” And so starts our tale... a little girl comes to rely on an inhuman beast... I ADORED the first volume of The Girl from the Other Side: Siúil, A Rún and had to pick up the next volume ASAP! And I raced through that volume as well... The lean story has the perfect balance of art, action and feels! There is also this mystery of the curse and the Inside and Outside and why they are that way. Teacher seems to get some answers but he is dissatisfied with them. We see the Inside encroaching on Shiva and Teacher in an ominous way and the fallout from events in volume 1 make Teacher's job protecting Shiva even more difficult.I didn't expect the events and cliffhangers of The Girl from the Other Side vol 2 as they seemed to come about too swiftly... but really is worked quite well... you may think this is going to move slow since the volume 1 took some time to setup the world and Shiva and Teacher's situation but this volume explodes out of the gate and doesn't look back. Caught in between the the simple and beautifully tender relationship between this beast and a little girl. I'm anxious too see where we go in volume 3 as Shiva is about to meet some demons like she's never known. We see the world expanding through the art as we come to a lake... I won't reveal anything but its so mysterious and the art just adds so much atmosphere to the entire story. There were a lot more dark frames in this volume too and I think it was spot on to how dark Shiva's life is becoming even as Teacher worries over her. It's Teacher though that I want to see bring some light back... I look forward to how he does that and how it comes out in the art!It's certainly a fact when men in power learn of an unknown variable that they will look to seize it and work it to their advantage. Poor Shiva is caught in the crosshairs of various powers and only has Teacher to stand in the gap with her. She is so innocent and pure that she doesn't realize her danger. Simply through her nature you can see why Teacher is so effected and feels so keenly to do all her can for this little girl!The Girl from the Other Side vol 2 takes the story right to a place that makes your heart fray and the mystery heighten! Just who is Teacher? What is up with Shiva? And what can the power of their bond do to help themselves?! This is a manga that anyone can enjoy... even those who doubt their desire to get into this format should pick this series up and see if it doesn't challenge them to keep reading!!⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Authenticity⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Tension⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Plot⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Art______________________You can find this review and many others on my book blog @ Perspective of a Writer.

    When David Lynch was making the original Twin Peaks series, he said that he really had no intention of ever revealing who killed Laura Palmer. Rather, Lynch wanted to continue peeling away the layers of the town and its residents, always learning just a little more, but never finding the ultimate solution.I'm thinking about that as I read through Nagabe's amazing The Girl from the Other Side series.

Rather, Lynch wanted to continue peeling away the layers of the town and its residents, always learning just a little more, but never finding the ultimate solution.I'm thinking about that as I read through Nagabe's amazing The Girl from the Other Side series. Nagabe seems to share Lynch's delight in simply letting one scene transition to the next, always raising more questions, but never quite answering the previous ones. (As a side note, if Lynch were ever interested in trying an animated film, The Girl from the Other Side would be a great choice for him.) I really like that slow, patient unfolding of the story and its characters and world. I don't know what the ultimate answers will be, if we're ever given them. But I am very much enjoying the story.In book 2, the tone becomes significantly more macabre--the kind of macabre where you can find a line like, "Please stop batting my head around. . . . It is not a toy," and where the head of a villain promises the protagonist that his body won't hurt her while his head and body are separated. The yearning and mystery from book 1 are still here, and though our perspective on this world broadens, we're left with more questions than answers--along with a nagging feeling that even the bits of information we're given may well be misdirection or outright lies.Thoroughly intriguing and beautiful--this has become one of my favorite graphic novels, and the Teacher (whatever he is or once was) is one of my favorite characters.

    I absolutely loved the first volume and I was hoping the second one doesn't disappoint and it didn't. It was amazing and so mysterious and dark and I love it so much. This is exactly the type of story I love. Like the first volume, this one left on a cliffhanger and I really want the 3rd book. This story is amazing and definitely one of my favourite Manga Series at the moment.

    I will reserve a review of this book for a later date. Needless to say, I am not interested in reading volume three. I will be perfectly content with brushing up on fractal geometry and the first chapter of my old high school calculus textbook (as stated in previous comments & updates on this book)😔

El mangaka suelta algunos tesoros ocultos, algunas pistas, que me crean necesidad de saber la respuesta.Y bueno, un cliffhanger final a la altura del primero.Por supuesto, ayuda el arte. La pequeña forastera es un manga que entra directamente por los ojos. Nunca he visto una historia con este tipo de arte. Es extraño, detallista pero sencillo, con un diseño que se sale de los cánones del manga. Este hermoso arte es parte del encanto de la serie junto con su atmósfera. Esperando el tercer volumen (para febrero) de Ecc, a ver como continúa y si pilla ritmo.

    Nach dem erstem Band hatte ich doch einige Erwartungen und habe gehofft, dass der zweite Band mich weiter in die seltsame Welt trägt und mich verzaubert.Ich bin aber doch eher enttäuscht. Mich hat die Handlung nicht mitgerissen, gefesselt oder wirkte spannend auf mich. Ich möchte schon sehr gern wissen wie es mit der kleinen Shiva weitergeht, allerdings habe ich doch Zweifel, dass die Geschichte mich noch richtig packen kann.

I can't think of a single artist that draws in a similar style, so that is really cool.At times the panels were a bit dark, so it was hard to follow what was going on, but otherwise a very solid reading and viewing experience.

    As with the previous volume, there are some storytelling gems in Volume 2 of Siúil, a Rún. The monsters as a possible metaphor for the fear of death, their "mother" a primordial spirit of song (as far as we can tell), Teacher's slight discomfort with the natural world despite the other monsters' fondness of it, his kindness toward Shiva.

    The second volume in this gorgeous and mysterious series!We start off from where we left the previous volume. There is an outsider who broke in and entered and is touching Shiva (which is a bad thing as you may remember from the first volume). I have to say I didn't expect the cursed one to act so violent though. It was quite gruesome. Sure, he didn't really have a choice, but well... Poor Shiva. I don't think she will forget what happened so soon. I just wanted to hug her and tell her he did it The second volume in this gorgeous and mysterious series!We start off from where we left the previous volume.

I have to say I didn't expect the cursed one to act so violent though. It was quite gruesome. Sure, he didn't really have a choice, but well... Poor Shiva. I don't think she will forget what happened so soon. I just wanted to hug her and tell her he did it to protect her. We learn more about the curse, we see another view on it at least, and I have to say it was quite confusing. It may also not have helped that I was tired and had a busy day. I had to re-read some parts of what happened underwater, and I feel there are still things we didn't see/hear. Plus I did feel sorry for our cursed guy. He definitely wasn't sure what to do about the situation. Should he tell Shiva? Should he keep it a secret for as long as he can?Then there is the matter of Shiva and the outsider who touched her. Our cursed guy kept checking to make sure she was fine. That she isn't turning black and cursed. I am still worried about that, but I guess we will have to wait until the next volume to see how that issue plays out. There are also enough slice of life-ish scenes. From sewing our cursed guy's coat, getting water, eating food. I definitely like those parts. I wouldn't mind if the whole curse thing was just forgotten and we would see the daily lives of these 2 characters.The ending? Arghhhh, this author sure loves cliffhangers. I just knew it was going to be bad as soon as Shiva started telling about her Auntie and story time. And when that person showed up? I was just shouting at Shiva, nooo don't go to her. Stay with the cursed one. He really cares for you. That woman is just a piece in someone's foul game. The art is still gorgeous, though I am very much creeped out by the cursed guy. Mostly because of his unnerving eyes. I definitely love the difference between Shiva and our cursed guy. She is drawn innocent and pure, he is drawn of evil and curses.I will get the next volume in a few weeks, I hope I can wait that long as I really want to find out what will happen to Shiva next. Once again, highly recommended!Review first posted at https://twirlingbookprincess.com/

Her character touches my heart because she's so pure. I know, that Outsider touched her at the end of volume 1 but I can't accept it. I don't want her to become a cursed one! ...

Her character touches my heart because she's so pure. I know, that Outsider touched her at the end of volume 1 but I can't accept it. I don't want her to become a cursed one! ... Thinking about it, I feel this is one of the themes in this series: Outside and Inside, like Bad and Good. What is Good, what Bad? This volume had me question whether the Inside is the good side because of those 'soldiers' and because of the Father. Besides, this is very interesting how there are Father on the Inside and Mother on the Outside. I'm yearning to learn more, especially about Mother. Though those Outsiders tried to explain it to Teacher, I didn't get it. Their task to return souls to Mother, the Outsiders being excluded and banned by the Insiders, the Insiders keeping the souls for themselves... And how can that curse be the result of all this? The Outsiders say, the curse is the Insiders' fault. I'm more confused than I was before. Unfortunately. But I am sure, at least I hope, all questions will be answered anytime. Nonetheless, I wouldn't call the Inside the good side, especially not when thinking of Father's plan for Shiva and he even used her aunt! That's cruel! Most of all, that's crueler than the Outsiders ever had been!Teacher is so different to the other Outsiders. They call him a 'dark child'. I think the point to make here, is to underline 'child'. There's no doubting it, he was a human once, like Shiva, and had been cursed and turned into an Outsider. How he described the process of transformation taught a lot of how Outsiders differ from Insiders. Mostly, it heart-aching to imagine to live like this, if you can call this 'living'. I've been so very shocked when Teacher chopped off that Outsider's head and he still was alive and being chopped into more pieces would be inconvenient but it looked as if this would not kill him, as if nothing would / could kill him. A shiver runs down my spine when I imagine this. So, Outsiders are immortal and exist up return souls. Obviously, there are different kinds, though. Those who've been there since the beginning and those who were humans once and still have to learn so much. As I see it, Teacher had been alone before he found Shiva. I truly wish to learn more about his past and about his feelings. He describes the curse as 'horror', this is why I can't avoid thinking, he hates what he is and having no way to change only worsens his situation and attitude. I feel sorry for him and this only makes me love him more. He's my fav character in this story because I find him so very strong because of how he deals with his fate while taking care of Shiva with all his power.I'm worried about what's going to happen to Shiva in volume 3; can Teacher come to the Inside to save her? And I'm hungry to find out more about that Insiders-Outsiders-concept and the curse. It would be great if there was a way for those realms to co-exist but I see the problems here, though...perhaps...if they could live in peace, the curse would just disappear like it came up. However, I impatiently wait for volume 3. Definitely a must-have!

    *2.5 starsThe art and pacing in this series create a wonderful atmosphere where very little happens very slowly. Seven Seas has formatted this series very oddly, with sound effects appearing inside word balloons so that characters are saying things like GRIP and CHOP during action sequences, which wreck the moment with unintentional comedy.

    I have to say, I think this is a much more intriguing series than The Ancient Magus' Bride. Without the complication of potential romance, the story plays with themes from Irish mythology and Medieval church beliefs, and its simple use of black, white, and grey in the art makes it feel like an old silent film. Yes, most manga is drawn and printed in black and white, but this series feels black and white, like an old photograph you find in an attic.

    I wasn't too sure about this series after vol. 1, but vol. 2 superbly creates a sense of foreboding and mystery, and I'm really excited about where this is going. The pacing is good, as the plot moves along at a nice speed, and the art adds a sense of creepiness without actually being scary. I still am not quite sure what audience this is intended for, but I honestly don't really care anymore - it's just good!

The way images are displayed is very thoughtful and artistic.The book ends on a bit of a cliffhanger and I am incredibly curious to see where the story goes. I am interested to see what the significance of Shiva and her pure soul is and curious to see how this all ties in with The Curse.Overall I am really loving the uniqueness and quiet beauty of this manga. I would recommend to manga fans who enjoy fairy tales. This is a very unique manga that is different from any other manga I have read and I am really enjoying. I definitely plan on continuing the series
