This is a gorgeous & fantastical adventure story. It has a plethora of dynamic mythical characters that have many layers to them. I want to give kudos to the Montana's wonderful world & more building.

I love this manga so far! It reminds me of Natsume Book of Friends. It's a very interesting story and I love the art style. Sometimes the transition from one scene to a new scene seems a bit too quick, but other than that it's really good. I look forward to reading more! If you like series that are similar to Natsume Book of Friends you'll probably enjoy reading Chika's Forest.

I'm loving the vibe. If you like spirited Away or My Neighbor Totoro it's definitely the manga for you. You'll definitely enjoy this one.

Mythical creatures, fairies and spiritual beings. Chika's forest revolves around our main protagonist, Chika, and her forest friends as she explores the magical world unknown to others. The story started off slow but it was heartwarming and cute as the readers were exposed to the different beings that lived in the forest and a glimpse into Chika's back story through Chika's adventure. Chika's forest emphasises on the importance of friendship and family ties. Definitely worth a try:)

Chika's Forest is a well written shojo manga. It creates an interesting back story, a lovable main character, and is creative in creating individualized non-existing characters. So far I think this is a great manga and worth exploring.

This is a really cute story with a nice artwork. It's not "My neighbor Totoro" - which was a masterpiece - but it gives you a similar feeling while reading. The pace is kind of slow and I'm still not sure what turn this story will take. First few chapters was more like a webcomic than a manga, which makes me feel not very invested in it - they were too much of an exposition, too closed. Although I like such soft stories at first I thought it doesn't have too much to offer except the artwork, so I almost dropped it in fourth chapter. But first longer story with Nyancy had something more in it. The artwork is really nice, the cuteness of it masks flaws of Artist skills.
I recommend this series to anyone who likes cute soft stories, about nothing.

The art style saves it, but the story moves so slow I'm pretty sure Kuroshitsuji uploaded already

This really has a studio Ghibli vibe about it making me wish for a anime adaptation of this manga.

Quite an interesting manga, very leisurely narrative, but still interesting. In some places it looks like Totoro.

This is honestly an extremely sweet story. The one thing I can compare it to is a indie student film, the type you feel like things are going slow but in reality a lot of stuff is happening all at once. The mystery of Chika’s memories and why they were lost is the ongoing elephant in the room without it being given to much importance and instead placing all of the focus on her discovering the forest and the magical places as well as the spirits and gods that live within. The one qualm I have, is that although the importance of people being a part of her life has been established, so far most of the important interactions have been with spirits. Maybe creating a balance between both would yield interesting results. Regardless, it’s a cute story with adorable drawings and a clear form of story telling. If I had kids I’d read this with them as a bedtime story!

The idea itself seems interesting, but there isn't much in the beginning to get you hooked. Hopefully the story picks up soon and I hope a more meaningful plot is revealed.

Seems like a good enough premise and very much like a Ghibli film but with it's own personality. Can't wait to see where they take this one!

I really love the spirits/fairies and the girl who discovers again more and more of her memories. But I think... There's something slow or flat in the beginning (I just red the free chapters for now)
The simple art style is cute, I'll read more✨

Chika's forest details the magical adventures of its protagonist and her relation with a variety of magical creatures, in general it is a lighthearted story that leaves you intrigued.
