30 Kawaii (cute!) designs inspired by Halloween and Autumn printed one side of the page

Kawaii Witches Autumn & Halloween Adult Coloring Book: A Halloween Coloring Book for Adults and Kids with Japanese Anime Witches, Cats, Owls, and Autumn Scenes

Rating: 4 of 5

The little girls in the designs in this coloring book are more what I would call manga than anime (as the publisher as noted in their description inside the book.) Anime is based on animation and I don’t believe these designs are based on a specific animation series. While manga in nature, they definitely have a Kawaii vibe to them, which means that are cute! The designs include young girls and young women in scenes celebrating either (or both) Autumn and Halloween. While some of the settings are somewhat macabre (such as cemeteries and such), they are all quite cute and will be fun to color.

The designs are detailed and some have small and intricate areas to color. It appears that the designs are the work of more than one artist as there are definite differences in style. While the style is not the same, they do work together well for an overall cohesive coloring book. It’s nice to have both Autumn and Halloween in one book. I’ll have fun through the end of October coloring the Halloween inspired designs and then pick up with the Autumn ones through the end of November. I am also hoping for a Kawaii Girl Christmas/New Year book.
30 Kawaii Autumn and Halloween designs.
Printed one side of the page
Paper is typical inexpensive quality by CreateSpace printing: white, thin, slightly rough and non-perforated.
The designs do merge into the binding. If you cut pages out, you will lose portions of the designs. Unfinished elements are left at all four edges of the paper.
Glue Binding
Coloring book can be opened fairly flat by breaking or heavily creasing the spine.
Alcohol-based markers bleed through the page quickly.
Water-based markers bleed through in spots.
Gel pens and India ink pens leave shadows on back of the page. India ink can bleed through if you apply heavily or multiple coats.
Coloring Pencils work well with this paper. I found that I could layers the same color for deeper pigment or multiple colors and I could blend easily using a blending stick. I also found that hard lead pencils leave dents through the paper.
I like to use a blotter when working in the book. I use a page of card stock or several sheets of heavyweight paper under my working page. It keeps seeping ink and marring dents from ruining the pages below.
