I love the anime of this manga and I thought I would read the manga. The anime follows the manga closely it seems. Everything in volume 1 is covered in the anime.
So I probably won’t read volume 2 and further. But to see Mao-chan in drawing and not animation is soooo nice. Mao-chan is so cute. I kind of miss this Mao-chan since where we are in the anime he is now no longer a baby but more of toddler.
