Once again it is time for us to delve into the daily life of an adorable dragon and the people closest to her. Here’s my thoughts on the sixth volume of Mitsuhiro Kimura’s Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid: Kanna’s Daily Life manga.
Turn, Turn, Turn
Everyone in Kanna’s world is getting along splendidly, and she is enjoying her elementary school life. Reading, marathons, and, of course, school lunches – Kanna loves them all. Not to mention going to the candy store after school! But what will she do when an unexpected change comes over Saikawa…?
The cold of winter fades into the warmth of summer. Which is faster – the changing of the seasons or children growing up?
In this particular volume of Kanna’s Daily Life, we get a balance of school and home stories. Naturally, the school stories all feature Kanna and Saikawa getting along together. Saikawa is present for a few of the home stories as well, but those tend to trend towards being more about the Kobayashi family.
One particular chapter in this volume got me slightly worried, and that is the one where Ilulu teaches Kanna her body transformation magic. Kanna accidentally uses said magic on Saikawa, but thankfully the effects are not the same as the time Ilulu used it on Miss Kobayashi in the main manga.
Things actually take a more wholesome turn thanks to Kanna’s magic, though it is only a temporary thing. Not that the result is something that Kanna seems particularly happy with.
Absolutely no worries with any other chapters, though, which are all about Kanna just doing her thing. Plenty of laugh out loud moments, on top of a whole lot of sugary sweetness. Every chapter in this volume is a joy to read, though ‘Time for Night Blossoms’ is probably the best of them all.
This volume also has a bonus chapter which is a crossover with Crossing Time – something about shouting the name of the person you love as a train passes by at a crossing. No prizes for guessing the names that Kanna and Saikawa shout respectively.
Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid: Kanna’s Daily Life continues to be such a charming spin-off of Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid, perhaps at times even surpassing it. I suppose that’s to be expected when you dedicate a spin-off to arguably the best character.
