    Pairings: Haku/Chihiro

    Here's a fairly relaxed fic depicting Haku as he tries to adapt to life with Chihiro by working as a librarian in the human world. But said adaptation is made difficult considering the lack of spirituality that was causing gods and spirits to fade from existence. Not to mention that they aren't too good with technology either.

    It's a good enough read and not too long, if not particular memorable either. If you've watched Spirited Away, give it a shot.

    3/5

    Had a read through.

    It has its moments, and it also drags on in other places. It could do with a bit of chopping down, I think.

    Still, it's an interesting introspective as well as worldbuilding piece. It started strong, kind of bloated but ended rather strong too. For those interested in the nature of gods and spirits from Spirited Away, this will be great. I think that it managed to do exactly what it set out to do, without becoming too niche.

    4/5
