    This actually makes me pretty sad. I loved I Am Here! and was really looking forward to reading something else by Ema Toyama. But Pixie Pop isn't nearly as good. I suppose that the concept is interesting: Mayu gains the ability to change form depending on what she drinks. But she isn't really doing anything with it, other than stalking her crush. And she is fairly creepy about it. Whether you're a sparkling vampire or a temporarily invisible girl, it is not romantic to sneak into somebody's hous This actually makes me pretty sad.

I just can't root for this romance. Even aside from that, I didn't much like Mayu or the fairy Puchyo. Not sticking around for this one.

    2.5 stars This wasn’t really spectacular or very compelling, to be honest. Some parts made me laugh and other parts I kinda just rolled my eyes. Also, I hate Pucho. Pixie Pop is just something I saw at the library and thought to read. I grabbed the other two books so I’ll finish the series regardless. I just don’t really love this manga. It’s okay though, and the art is pretty!

    I first picked up this volume when I was going into middle school and really loved it for the magical girl aspect of the storyline! It depicts a realistic infatuation often one-sided that adolescent girls tend to experience so young. I could relate at the time to Mayu’s crush. Even though now it seems more comical to me I still enjoyed this series and am happy I decided to read it again!

    God reading this for the first time since high school is surreal and nostalgic. I connected with this book so much from having a one sided love go on for 5 years but also the pain and suffering the characters endures is exactly how I felt during those times. Of course reading it now is a little silly and I do cringe at remembering those memories but it still holds itself dear to my heart!

    There is cute escapism and I let a lot slide in the magical girl manga genre (which this falls into) but nope Pixie Pip will not be a series I will continue with.

    After reading the description I was more than a little interested in this manga series. It looked cute and funny. In middle Mayu is the daughter of a cafe owner who had told a boy she liked him a bit ago. He asked who she was and embarrassed her soooo much. She's determined to get over him but it's hard when he sits right next to her and she keeps running into him. To make matters worse she's been stuck on a strictly water diet after drinking a strange drink accidentally. It was meant for Puchyo After reading the description I was more than a little interested in this manga series. It looked cute and funny.

To make matters worse she's been stuck on a strictly water diet after drinking a strange drink accidentally. It was meant for Puchyo, the magical fairy of drinks. She was going to drink it and become an adult. Instead Mayu got it and now they argue back and forth about how wrong Mayu was and how silly Mayu is and etc. etc. Whenever Mayu drinks something that isn't water she has strange side-affects. from being bold and flirty to turning invisible to turning into a pig. Pros:This manga is really fun and cute. It was happy and a bit ridiculous. I liked it pretty well and will probably get the next one just for fun. I don't think it will be a favorite for me, but I'll still enjoy it. Cons:I got confused a couple times and there is slight romantic content. Otherwise there is some magic and I think that was it.

    Mayu, while drowning her sorrows in soda pop accidentally drinks a special concoction that belongs to Pucchou -- a drink fairy. This special 'magical' drink was supposed to turn Pucchou into an adult. Now whenever Mayu drinks something, she transforms. Pucchou, heartbroken that she can never grow up, and Mayu, heartbroken that the boy of her dreams has rejected her, team-up to realize their dreams together. This story is only 3 volumes long, which is the perfect length to create believable charac Mayu, while drowning her sorrows in soda pop accidentally drinks a special concoction that belongs to Pucchou -- a drink fairy.

This story is only 3 volumes long, which is the perfect length to create believable characters while also avoiding the repetitive nature that is usual in magical girl stories. The characters are all exceptionally cute, and the art style is clear and consistent. With few characters, this story is well crafted. It has a lovely upbeat ending and doesn't leave any unanswered questions. I would definitely recommend this series to tween-aged manga-readers.

    This book is a typical Manga. For those who are new to this genre, it is a Japanese book with sketches and words. Readers who are not familiar with Manga might think it is a comic book. Many times the artist is also the author of the book. The book begins at the back and works toward the front. Many Mangas are done in a series. This particular book is the first in a series.

    The plot was very promising but the execution's extremely childish. That's Tōyama's first volume and I guess it shows. The concept seems to be funny - a girl who can transform into different things according to what she drinks - but I found this volume a bit confused. It seems that the scenes aren't developed enough and the plot moves forward too quickly. I usually lile Tōyama's art and you can recognize it even in this early work of her. I've already ordered volume #2 and I'll probably read volume The plot was very promising but the execution's extremely childish. That's Tōyama's first volume and I guess it shows.

    a girl named mayu has accidentally drunken a special pixie drink that will turn a small pixie into a beautiful woman w/ extraordinary powers. this gives special powers too, in a way, when she drinks milk, she becomes giant, when she drinks water she becames invisble, and stangely enough, when she drank pork miso soup, she became pig!

    EEK! Cuteness to a whole new level!!!! Loved the storyline - original, though the main girl character could have used just a bit of a touch-up to her personality. The other girl, who claims to love Mai's crush - hate her to hell. She was what ruined the whole story for me, but I managed to read the whole thing. Loved it so badly, especially the art.

    Check out my short series review here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfo_m... Love the art style and all the different transformations whenever Mayu drinks something. Wasn't crazy about the love interest though, he was a bit too cold for me. But other than that it is a fun, cute and short manga series that I definitely recommend!

    /sigh It's a guilty pleasure, these types of stories. All sugar, sweetness, dreams, and magic, not to mention every lovesick character is 12 years old. I go to Pixie Pop when I need a dose of innocence and pink. That being said, it's not a very deep read and yes, there are "better" stories out there, I suppose. But come on. The adorable cafe, guys. The frills. The tea. Gah.

    *3 or more is good for comics, manga or graphic novels. I never really know how to rate some of these. There are some where I'm totally in love, know automatically it is a 5 star, but then some I am just not sure about in the first couple volumes.* Cute. I read this for the Book Riot Read Harder Challenge 2015. Challenge: 19. A book that was previously published in another language.

    Thought I'd try something cute instead of a dark manga. And maybe I should just stick to the weird. Didnt like this at all. Mayu was such a whiney annoying over the top transformer. Maybe do us a favor and disappear for good.

    I got volume 1 and 2 for a dollar each. I like this series so far. They are mainly a filler, while I wait for a new Inubaka, but they were a pleasant read. I wish that the guy would be nicer.

    While this manga has a cute concept, it's pretty run-of-the-mill shojo. Nothing too original in the silly romance department.
