Thoughts on Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid: Kanna’s Daily Life Volume 4

Once again I shall be dropping in on the daily life of a cute little dragon, and the people around her as I focus on the fourth volume of Mitsuhiro Kimura’s Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid spinoff manga, Kanna’s Daily Life.

Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid Kanna's Daily Life Volume 4

Fall = Fun!
After a wonderful summer, it’s time for an equally exciting fall! For Kanna and friends, that means harvesting crops with the (former) god of culture and going on a foliage-viewing trip. A cornucopia of good times is right around the corner!

There’s a fair amount of stuff going on in the fourth volume of Kanna’s Daily Life for me to enjoy: magical girls, metal and cats. I’ll get to that in a moment, though.

Whilst most of it does concentrate on Kanna, Lucoa and Shouta also get a couple of chapters focusing on them. They are still Lucoa and Shouta; that’s all I really have to say about that.
Actually, I find them fine as characters when they’re on their own. It’s their interactions with each other that don’t particularly sit well with me. More specifically, it’s the way Lucoa acts towards Shouta.
I’ll put up with it, since Lucoa and Shouta only have relatively small appearances compared to the real stars of this manga: Kanna and Saikawa.

There’s a lot of fun stuff with the two, and I’ve already mentioned three events from this volume that stuck out most for me. That magical girl chapter also included references to KiraKira PreCure a la Mode, which was pretty neat. It may also provide a little insight to the year that said chapter was initially published.
A few events in this manga also make reference to certain things that happened in the Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid manga. The same has happened in previous volumes, and there’s generally a footnote telling you which volume and chapter you can find said things in.

Four volumes in, and Kanna’s Daily Life is still a fun experience. Obviously I prefer certain chapters over others, but overall the manga has been good so far. One that I strongly recommend, whether you’re a Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid fan, or just want to see more from Kanna.
