"...The Girl from the Other Side is a masterfully told comic." --J. Caleb Mozzocco, School Library Journal: Good Comics for Kids
"One of the most fulfilling aspects of Siúil is this conveyance of comics as language, of words and pictures as unified text. ... It's been a while since I loved a book as unequivocally as I loved The Girl from the Other Side, and I'm eager to see where it goes next." --Zainab Akhtar, Comics & Cola
"...the dread and mystery that permeate The Girl from the Other Side are so remarkable that there seems little point in doubting; it remains poised to continue as one of the most fascinating works of graphic fiction in recent memory." --Austin Price, Unwinnable

It definitely grabs your attention and draws you in. But it isn't so in your face with information that you get lost and don't want to continue reading. It has a very light feeling so to say with a serious problem going on. It's cute, sad, and a good read. I will be buying the next volumes as they come out and so should you.
This is a fantastically unique manga, with a slice of life feel within a dystopian setup. It features a cursed monster and a little girl he’s acting as guardian for going about their daily lives amidst more significant and perilous developments building in the background. I found it to be wonderfully told, with atmospheric, stylistic art and just the right pacing. The little touches and details of what’s depicted let this shine, and I already really care about the two leads. In some ways this reminds me a bit of the webcomic Hemlock in feel, although obviously the story and setup are quite different.
So far The Girl from the Other Side builds around a wonderfully simple core concept with an intriguing world and strong emotional context to give its tale depth. This volume ends with a rather big cliffhanger, which makes me even more curious to read what’s next. Great start.
Spoilers - the first vol really does a wonderful job setting up the relationship between Shiva & her teacher. It also lays the groundwork well into the isolated world they're in. I really can't recommend this enough, I can't wait to get the second vol.
