Preliminary
Oboreru Knife is a good story shoujo manga. which drama is focused in a really realistic way, there are not too much dreamy pinky situations, that make the story very interesting and you don't feel it empty.

About the graphics, they have a unique style. The eyes are big but the mangaka maintains the shape of a real eye, and it makes a mature impression. Also, the mangaka don't use too mane shadows on the characters and if she use it, the shadows are represented by consecutives lines, but most of the times you see the characters in white and black, with only lines standing read more

This is the shoujo to go for if you're sick and tired of silly heroines.
The story isn't all that interesting and new in the beginning, but it does take some little turns and it amps up along the way, I really can't say much for it because it hasn't been completely subbed yet by anybody.

When it comes to art, I like Geroge Asakura's art style, the characters are very doe-eyed and it's very endearing, re-reading it again made me realize that as the characters aged in the manga, they were drawn in a more mature way that was so slight it seemed almost realistic. You read more
