If I Could Reach You
Volume 1


Uta Naruse's first love moved beyond her reach before she could fully realize her feelings. Kaoru, her childhood friend and the object of her affection, married Uta's brother, Reiichi. Due to some difficulties with her parents, Uta now lives with the joyful newlyweds. After a year of sharing a home with her crush, Uta finds it increasingly difficult to come to terms with her feelings. Her only solace comes from relaying her troubles to her friend and confidant, Kuroe.

Grappling with what she imagines to be a forever unrequited love, Uta is unable to find peace. However, recent events hint at issues in Kaoru and Reiichi's marriage. Perhaps they are not as happy as Uta imagined.

This manga is amazing.

Our cast of characters this time around consists of Uta, an ordinary high read more

I read 22 chapters all in one go, and I've got to say that this story flows very well and does a great job at conveying emotions to the reader. Although they have nothing to do with each other, I was reminded of "Kimi no Iru Machi". At times when reading sad parts, I would feel my heart drop and I could feel the sadness coming through the pages to me. Series' that can somehow transmit the feels to you are awesome. And, even though I have pretty much nothing in common with the protagonist, the storytelling is done in a way where I feel read more

This review is going to try and avoid major spoilers, thank you

So Tatoe Todokanu ito da toshitemo has a concept that basically sounds like it'll be something like Netsuzou trap or Citrus, as any of you who've read the description may already think, BUT it's surprisingly clean and self-aware.

Now for those of you who don't know what Tatoe is about, it's about a senior in High School, Uta, who falls in love with her new Sister-in-law, Kaoru. RED ALERT! RED ALERT! your brains probably thinking, but again, it's not what you think. A lot of the early chapters focus on Uta's conflict over the fact read more
