Library Journal Review

Japanese schoolgirl Marin (age 13, though she's drawn more like a cute-as-a-button nine-year-old) is a poor orphan bullied by schoolmates. Yet she's cheerful and energetic and loves her large adoptive family. In this enjoyable manga, Marin discovers that there's something special about herself-just like so many other average girls before her. The story takes its name and central idea from Lerner and Lowe's musical about a city that appears only once every 100 years; but here Brigadoon's population includes cartoonish talking cats and "living weapons" called Monomakia, and its appearance in the skies of Earth causes widespread destruction. In this concluding volume, Marin discovers her true connection to Brigadoon as she and her Monomakia protector travel there to prevent disaster. The manga's story is adapted and shortened from that of the Brigadoon anime TV series (available on DVD). The comic is still worthwhile on its own, with enough emotional drama, action, eye appeal, and hints of depth to overcome some silliness. Recommended for teens and adult manga and anime fans; librarians wishing to include manga in their collections but not willing (or able) to commit to a long series such as Ranma 1/2 might especially consider this two-book set.
