Amefurashi: The Rain Goddess by Atsushi Suzumi

Everything is going well in Gimmy's desert town. That is, until his younger twin siblings disappear. When Gimmy goes to find them, he meets a bossy girl named Sora. She just so happens to be the rain goddess that is in charge of the water in his town! He needs to make sure she stays happy so that she will continue to provide rain. What will happen when another goddess comes to claim Sora's territory?

As a manga, Amefurashi lives up to others in the same genre. It is a fantasy book with adventure and action incorporated in it as well. I really enjoyed the drawings. All of the characters looked amazing, and their physical characteristics went along well with their personalities. I liked the plotline because the story went neither too slow nor was it boring at any point. It is a very unique manga; many people would enjoy it. I recommend this manga to anyone who likes graphic novels and is looking for an enticing, quick read.
