This story is a definite 10. I truly enjoyed the intricacy of the relationships in this manga. I think it breached and explored an often taboo subject with grace and proper reverence. Rape and teenage pregnancy is often overlooked in many books, yet this manga dealt not only with this issue, but with the aftermath at well. Though the manga is only 4 books, the story took an appropriate time to develop and the character relations progressed smoothly.
Art- 7 The art was decent, but nothing magnificent. It was able to get the point across, but it lacked detail in the movements. I also noticed that the characters seemed to stay in the same positions a lot. While the art wasn't great, it doesn't detract from the story.
Character-8 The main characters were excellent and 3 dimensional. Aikawa was a very fragile, scarred, and broken girl. It was wonderful to see her personality develop over the course of the story. Suwa's personality develop was not as drastic, but he was opened to the harsh reality of life and learned to be more compassionate. I gave the characters an 8 because some of the supporting characters are a little fake. Like his sister is a little too cheerful and nonchalant about the condition she is in.
Enjoyment 10 This was absolutely touching, in that it made me feel true empathy for the characters in this manga. It was an emotional roller coaster and I loved every second of it.
Overall-9 This was a beautiful and touching piece of work that haunts me with its intricate yet simple story. It draws you in and really makes you think about the tough real life decisions these characters have had to make. Overall it was a fantastic and truly touching read. read more
