Love in Focus
Volume 1


Freshman high school student Mako Mochizuki is easily prone to getting lost, especially whenever engrossed in the world through the lens of her film camera, a hobby she has had since she was young thanks to her beloved grandfather. Now that her grandfather is gone, Mako feels she lacks direction when fellow photography enthusiast Kei Akahoshi invites her to stay at Hasumi Inn, his high school's local boarding house. The building is also known as "Lens Inn," as all of the housemates are part of the school's photography club, so Mako decides to take a shot at her childhood friend's offer, using the opportunity to find new sights as well as herself.

While on her way to the inn, Mako catches sight of a puppy and starts to take a picture of it only to accidentally capture the long-haired boy walking with the animal. Later on, as Kei guides her around the manor, she learns that the puppy was the inn's residential pet, Omochi, and that his human companion–who Mako gave a bad first impression to–was Mitsuru Amemura, a fellow first-year. Despite his apparent dislike of having his picture taken, Mako discovers a photogenic side to Mitsuru, allowing a friendship of the two to slowly come into focus.

I was looking for something short, wholesome, light and airy that would put a smile on my face. But I didn't want the regular cheesy teenagers falling in love. I wanted something more. This manga sure served it.

I really enjoyed how relatable all the characters were. The calm atmosphere while still keeping it intriguing. The fun cute *fuwa fuwa* moments. Most of all I loved the camera-element. As an amateur photographer myself I found this aspect very interesting, inspiring and motivating.

Even though the manga was short, I still feel like I got to know each character. Sometimes a wholesome and cute slice of ...

I like the main character a lot Yoko Norigiri makes her main characters alike in personalities this was one of my favorite books she wrote it has a very good name for it also, the main character in the story is a girl who wants to be a photographer like her grandpa shes on her way to a childhood friends house when she sees a guy playing with a dog she enjoys the sight so much she decided to take a photo the boy notices and she runs away, that's the start to the book there are moments in it that make you feel warm ...

Mixed Feelings
Love in Focus is a simple manga. It's a light read and you could definitely finish it in one sitting. The female lead's personality all boils down to her love for photography, there isn't anything else about her that's interesting. My biggest issue with this manga is the fact that the author didn't dive deep enough into the thoughts and reasons behind a character's actions. I'm not saying they didn't dive in at all, but more effort could've gone into it. Had the story been longer, maybe it would've been better. I can't even tell how or why the main couple fell for each other. ...
