Such a shame that this manga doesnt get the recognition it deserves!

The story follows the life of haru and her dead sister's fiancé togu. Now, you may think that romance between these 2 people may be a bit inappropriate; I know I did, but I decided to give this a chance. And boy am I glad I did! The story and the protagonist are well aware if the messed up situation she's in. The characters actually deal with the fact that their relationship is peculiar, to say the least. The story also shows how haru dealt/deals with the death of a person she was so ...

Haru's Curse is a manga that goes far past any forbidden romance or typical love triangle, and it oftentimes deal with familial relationships more than the romantic. This manga demonstrates how grief can affect people far after their loved ones are gone, sometimes even making it resemble a curse.

Natsumi, our main character, is dating Togo. The only problem is that Togo was Natsumi's little sister's fiancé up until her untimely death. Natsumi agrees to go out with Togo in exchange that they visit the places he and her little sister visited, as a sort of way for her to pan through her grief. Natsumi, however, ...

Basically this very sad story is about Natsume and her late sister's fiancee who are in the process of grieving because of her sad passing. I do wish this series expanded out even more like I did feel ok about it at first but the same time, I would've liked to have seen where and what the main characters have decided to do for themselves in a epilogue chapter. That the main reason why I'm giving this a 7/10 rating. I'm trying my best to keep this spoiler free so please just read this manga and you'll understand my point here lol.

If you're expecting ...

This manga is unexpectedly raw. I expected it to be a sad-sob love story, which is partially what it is, but there's an element of darkness and an unforeseen twisted mix of sinister emotions. The characters are so well crafted, everything is explained amazingly in the limited amount of chapters.

I didn't expect each character to have so much depth and similarities to every mundane actions and thought processes. Whilst reading the manga I saw a lot of raw and innate human emotions that was wonderfully expressed, it shows how humans are innately selfish and ignorant to those who care about them most. The variety ...

Haru's Curse

A short but gripping story that doesn't stop being enjoyable from start to finish.

Haru's Curse is a story about an older sister who starts going out with her dead sister's fiancee.... Its fucked up. Their "shouldn't they" relationship is Haru's Curse.

The series in enveloped in this dense atmosphere as both the main characters feel guilty for there actions but can't stop themselves from doing it either. Despite this thick atmosphere, there is moments of lighthearted playfulness. Cracks in the manga to make sure the manga's tone never overwhelms the reader. The manga is engaging and entertaining and with only 8 chapters i can really ...

This was an immensely engaging read. It takes a premise that could be very trashy or messy and treats the characters with depth and nuance by examining their conflicting feelings of grief, guilt, and desire. Feelings and behaviors are often recontextualized as the story progresses which results in a deep investment into the characters.

The story primarily focuses on three people - Natsumi, Togo, and Haru, all of whom are well-realized. The story starts with Natsumi distraught over the loss of the only person she's ever loved, her sister Haru. In an attempt to navigate her grief Natsumi enters into a relationship with Togo, her sister's ...

I finally got around reading Haru no noroi and girl it touched me. It only has 8 chapters but they feel like eternity because of the heavy content in there (and it has absolutely no drama). After I was done I was shaken to the core because of the twists, the storytelling the art and everything. It’s a story about three people, 2 sisters haru and natsumi and the male lead tougo. Haru dies due to some illness and her sister dates her boyfriend for a period of time because of apparent reasons….saying anymore would be spoiling it so I won’t tell more. But wow ...

This manga really had me enthralled from the very first page. The drawings are pretty and add a good charm to the story.
The story pulls at your heartstrings. I could feel the sadness from the characters, the jealousy, the guilt, the grief, the confusion and I felt it with them. Every time Togo showed Natsumi any type of affection, even though he maybe didn’t do it consciously, my heart was about to jump out of my body, and I think even the neighbors could hear me squeal while sitting with my knees under my chin. Damn, Togo is so cute my heart can’t keep ...

Beautiful. This manga really had me wrapped up in everything these characters were going through from the first panel. When I read the initial synopsis I thought this strange taboo of a girl dating her dead sister's fiancee would be hard to get past, but how Natsumi and Togo get wrapped up in this guilt, and this feeling of being left with a curse was gutwrenching to see unfold. It's almost like the romance intended took a back seat to focus on the grief felt, and ultimately just showed how much Natsumi loved her sister. These moments of confusion and feelings of deceit are written ...
