The Tarot Café Summary
Meet Pamela, a tarot card reader who helps supernatural beings living in the human world.
She’ll help anyone, whether they’re a love-stricken cat, a vampire spending eternal life running from his one true love, an unattractive waitress looking for the man of her dreams, or even a magician who creates a humanoid doll to serve the woman he loves.
Although she is good-natured, there is a deep dark secret that she must deal with before she can move on to the next life.My Anime List
The Tarot Café is apparently good for the first couple of volumes, but trails off towards the end of the volumes.
The main idea is about tarot cards, with some really good illustrations.
As for the first story, it’s both sad and heartwarming. So it seems the stories vary in quality and purpose, which is nice.
Now, the art isn’t exactly something you may be used to. It’s more similar to manga series in the past, not the beautiful coloured illustrated manhwa series in current times.
The story has some supernatural themes, but I’m not sure how much is based in horror.
I was struggling a bit regarding how many stories we’ve reading and how it’s all connected, but there’s a main plot connecting to everything.
Final thoughts: Although it may not be for everyone, it can be worth a peek.
This is part of Otomenai’s horror month, where we share some interesting horror comics during the month of October.
