Publisher Comments:

Demons like Rara are supposed to cause mischief in the mortal world and draw humans to darkness. They're not supposed to help mortals and they're definitely not supposed to fall in love with them! But that's just what happens when Rara enters high school, where a hot guy named Retsu Aku calls her "Gaba Kawa"!

But that's just what happens when Rara enters high school, where a hot guy named Retsu Aku calls her "Gaba Kawa"!While demons gain power by causing mischief, the opposite is also true--if Rara uses any of her powers to help mortals, she'll immediately lose that very power. If she loses enough power, she'll disappear! Poor Rara. What's a "Gaba Kawa" demon to do?

Review:

"The single-volume Gaba Kawa manga had a complete run in Shojo Beat magazine earlier this year. 'Gaba Kawa' is 'a made-up word that means someone is cute because they don't give up.' Although not giving up on your crush is tantamount to stalking by American cultural standards, in the world of shojo manga it's considered cute. 'It's cute you're so persistent,' handsome love-interest Retsu says of Rara, a demon sent to the human world to commit evil acts. Rara has trouble telling the difference between mischief and evil, and quickly loses her powers as she breaks the only rule she's been given: 'Never use magic on behalf of a human.' A lighthearted but disposable comedy follows, drawn in the distinct, attractive style typical of Takada's other works." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
