This is the continuation of the manga sterilization of the books, and it follows the middle-ish of the book. The story continues the tale of Kraft and Holo's journey to the north, when they come across a real money making opportunity. The author does a real good job at staying true to the books and even keeps one of the characters the same that the anime changed.

The drawings are really well crafted and look somewhat like the anime, but have its own look to it as well. I really love the back and forth banter they have and the creator of the manga kept it in the story and really flows well with the faces the animator made.

Over all I suggest picking this up if you feel like continuing the series, I really enjoyed reading these after reading the books and seeing the anime since they really do a good job in bringing the characters to life in a manga format. If you enjoyed the anime or especially the books, you will enjoy continuing this series as well.

Positives:
* Great drawings of the world and characters
* Characters are brought to life quite well
* Stays true to the book story wise

Negatives:
* Has a parental rating for some minor nudity like the first manga

The story of Holo and Lawrence continues. I love this series - both as an anime and now for the manga. They continue to run into trouble and adventure as they travel. I can't wait to read the next manga.

This manga is amazing! I just can't seem to get enough of Holo, she's just so cute and devilish. The item came in just a couple of days and was in perfect condition. Anyone who loves a good quality manga with an addicting story should buy this soon.

Which sometimes is good. In this case...no. Still a complex story but mostly about trade, coins, the Church, with some action in the form of a kidnapping. I like the artwork but the economy heavy plot makes for a good business class 101 but makes for a somewhat bad second book in a series. Even with the action near the end of the volume it still feels very slow and even a tad confusing to me. I have decided, if I am going to enjoy this story, it will be via the text novels. So I will likely read them - in fact already have the first book in that series, which the manga and anime are based on. In the end, if I wanted a lesson on currency and early trade I could just go to one of my history books on the Middle Ages in Europe. At least THAT I would enjoy and be able to get into. Trying to make a realistic system of trade interesting, in a fantasy setting, may help fill out your world during the creation process. But is a detail that should stay in the background. You don't build your whole series around it. Maybe one story, yes, but not the whole series.
I plan to drop the manga and just, as I said, continue with the text novel and see if I enjoy that.
In the end, the second volume is okay but is not as good as the first, suggesting that the series will, from my point of view, just become more and more uninteresting.
