Ran to Haiiro no Sekai(Ran and the Gray World)
Categories: comedy, drama, fantasy, romance, seinen, slice of life, supernatural
Author/Artist: Aki Irie
The first couple of chapters deals with pretty much as stated in the synopsis; the naive little girl, Ran, that has immense magical power(and when I say "magical power", think Bewitched )gets into something, usually because she uses magic to grow older, with her brother stepping in to "save" her before she gets herself into more trouble. After that, it expands its scope; supernatural elements, some romantic elements, all the while showcasing it in a sort of slice-of-life style of storytelling. Ran's personality is simply dazzling, all the while retaining the mindset of a 10-year old girl. Just something about her makes me LOVE her character (^,^)! The supporting cast all have their own moments in the spotlight, but none develop all too much except one over the course of several volumes. What does develop is akin to what one would expect in a slice-of-life read; very subtle, but potent changes.

Wow, kinda overdid it. In any case, its a good manga to me, even though it misses in some places, overall, the entertaining and variety of good characters make up for it.
