The Life-Changing Manga of Tidying Up: A Magical Story Reviews
I have an annual tradition of reading "the life changing magic of tidying up" (yeah i'm crazy), but this manga was a nice substitute this year to give me the organizing pick-me-up that I needed. I don't know what it is about KonMari but she has some kind of magic fairy dust strangle-hold over me. I can't get enough of her.
I really clicked with this concept and am currently in the process of Konmari-ing my apartment. <3
It is time to tidy up your life! Well, if you are such a terrible case as Chiaki is. :P
I already knew about the normal book, and I even tried it, but it just wasn't for me. So when I saw there was a manga for the book, I was curious, but also hesitant. I read a sample online and well, I couldn't resist. The art was fun, the story seemed interesting, and I wanted to know if garbage-dump-living Chiaki could change her way.
Chiaki is really terrible in cleaning/tidying up. I mean, I get that you get ...more
Quick review for a quick read. I could say that my initial reaction upon finishing this book was "ERMAHGARD, THIS IS SO CUTE AND INFORMATIVE AND I CAN'T DEAL, AND KONMARI REALLY DOES LOOK LIKE A FAIRY! GAAAAAAAAAHHHH!"
But then that really would only scratch the surface of the amount of joy that I received from this book. It's a cute story that takes many of the principles from Marie Kondo's "The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up" and puts it in a story-based manga format. The illustrations in i ...more
This was a cute, fun read.
It piqued my curiosity, held my interest, and didn't take long to finish.
Ms. Kondo put forth some interesting ideas and helpful suggestions re: tidying up.
And, yes, she totally goes there regarding all the books I... I mean, Chiaki has.
Which are still some of the hardest things in the world for me to let go of...
Uh... sorry. Just had a moment there...
Shocking, I know.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>
Oh my goodness! A short but so very sweet manga based off of Marie Kondo's book, "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up". I was hesitant to read her whole book, and this manga was the perfect summary... combined with a cute story to help get me invested. I really want to go and clean my room now. And I think I will!
So I've never read the original and skipped over the cheesy romance side story, but this is pretty sound practice. Though I pretty much do all this stuff already, so I'm basically Marie Kondo. I prefer the moniker Lindsay the Destroyer.
I couldn't get through Marie Kondo's other books, but I love this manga version! It is funny and provides good tips without being repetitive. I think illustrating Kondo's ideas works beautifully.
