What made me pick this book up: 
Because Tangled manga!

What did I like about the cover: 
It's so cute! The colors are classic Tangled, I love the flowers, and Rapunzel looks adorable.

What made me read this book: 
Tangled manga! Okay but Tangled is one of my all time favorite Disney movies and I love manga. Win win.

What did I like the most: 
Again, it's Tangled. It was just like the movie, so of course it was great. 
I loved seeing the characters in manga form. And of course manga is always more dramatic so that was fun too. 

What didn't I like: 
The only thing I didn't like is that it says it's inspired by the movie. Which leads me to think it will be different but the same characters.
NO. It is the movie in manga form. So I was kind of disappointed in that. 
I was really hoping for a new story. But that's okay

Would I read the rest of the series/more from this author?

I absolutely love seeing this movie as a manga. The artwork is absolutely adorable, keeping with the Disney style, while also being manga. I wish it was colored though, because I'd love to see it in color.

Same characters as the movie. Nothing really to talk about here. I also love seeing them as manga characters.

It's the same as the movie but everything happens so much faster. I wish some of the little scenes were in there, just because it helps you know the characters more. 

I rated this a 4 star only because I wish it was a different story than the movie. But it was still good. 

Overall it was still great, just like the movie.
