Cherry Magic! Thirty years of virginity can make you a wizard? ! National Army 3-5

Through cohabitation, awkward dates and surprising Confessions, Adachi and Kurosawa have finally come out from the other side and are now officially a couple. The road to get there is not smooth, and Adachi faces more obstacles than construction workers in trying to come to terms with his feelings for Kurosawa. But now that they are finally dating, things will go much smoother, right? correct?

Cherry Magic Translated by Taylor Engel and written by Bianca Pistillo.



Yo you might think that being suddenly given the ability to read the minds of the people you come in contact with would make dating easier. In a way, that’s true – Adachi, who became a “wizard” after his 30th birthday, is still a virgin, and if he couldn’t hear his thoughts, he might not even start noticing his colleague Kurosawa. Arguably, Adachi’s life would have been a lot sadder if this hadn’t happened, because he’s been single not because he wasn’t interested in romance; he simply didn’t have the chance or the courage to pursue it. Found that someone

is being interested in him has helped him overcome some hesitation and self-esteem issues, especially since “a certain The person” in question is heartthrob Akira Kurosawa.

Things really start to change between the two during these three volumes, the fourth and fifth of which are the batch the strongest among men. That’s largely because Adachi finally realized that Kurosawa was serious, not just a whim. The men’s temporary cohabitation in volume three helps a lot with this, as Adachi confronts Kurosawa’s love head-on, which makes him harder to kill. Their time together also had a very real impact on Adachi accepting his feelings – it didn’t matter to him what Kurosawa’s gender was or how out of character he thought the other guy was, he was in love anyway It’s a positive thing for him.

Since volume 3 is still in “getting there” mode, volumes 4 and 5 end up feeling more rewarding because we Finally reaping the rewards of Adachi’s three books, he stumbles in his emotions. It’s not that there aren’t some great moments in volume three; more importantly, they’re overshadowed by the two events that follow. Chief among them is the failure of the whole “Kurosawa Plans a Date” where he tries to create a perfect day for Adachi, but ends up tripping up a little bit by himself. His plan was undeniably romantic. They just haven’t worked out in practice like he’d hoped. That’s largely because Adachi wasn’t sure he was worthy of the kind of pampering Kurosawa had planned for him, but also because he’d been unsure if he’d meet another man in public. It should be noted that this doesn’t appear to be due to any internalized homophobia; rather, it’s because he feels inferior to Kurosawa to the point where he worries that others will think he doesn’t belong. Interestingly, the few minds he was able to read during his dates didn’t reveal this at all – everyone seemed taken aback by how fanatical Kurosawa was about the apparently uncomfortable Adachi acting in front of a store clerk Yu Yu felt that Kurosawa looked at Adachi as if he was buying him clothes so that he could take them off later.

Needless to say, Kurosawa was ecstatic about most of the latter two books. He’s not quite convinced that Adachi likes him too, and is determined to keep things going. As he saw the other’s determination, Adachi began to worry about one very specific thing: whether he should tell Kurosawa about his psychic abilities. His hesitation is understandable. After all, if you trace their relationship, that’s how the two of them came together, and the more comfortable he is around Kurosawa, the harder it is for him to hide his power. But when he worries about revealing that he knew early on how obsessed Kurosawa was with him, or that he knew about his (somewhat creepy) fantasies from the start, he worries that it could mean the relationship The end of a relationship that was important to him. He doesn’t want to lose Kurosawa at this point, which is why he’s seriously considering revealing the truth. This, more than anything else, really highlights how important this relationship has become to him, because his only fear is that if he knows the truth, Kurosawa will leave him – and now that they’ve actually done Come on, it’s not something he wants to think about connected.

All three volumes continue to make a bit of a mockery of the parental advice on the cover, because there’s nothing like a kiss and that’s just one of them one of the books. They’re also all short so there’s not much to gain, but the fact that so many chapters have been added for bulk release (as opposed to the original digital serialization) is a positive for anyone who’s already read the Japanese original Follow that, and it speaks volumes about how invested the creators are in the story. Each book also has side romances about Adachi’s friend Tsuge and his budding romance with the delivery man/dancer, and the two stories do merge briefly in volume five, which is a nice touch. Also, if you pay attention to these things, episode trailers are released in volume four, which should give you an idea of ​​how much of the extended comic it follows; as of this writing, the show is available to stream on Crunchyroll204, it’s a pretty good show.

has moved well past its slightly uncomfortable premise. Adachi’s psychic powers now feel less like a gimmick or an excuse and more like an expression of his social awkwardness, allowing romantic sweetness to shine through. It’s a gentle, occasionally funny 300BL series, if the title puts you off, it’s worth ignoring the fascinating story it hides.
