Eiji, Naohiko and Izumi have been friends since middle school. Naohiko started going out with Izumi later on. Meanwhile, Eiji seemed to easily find his crushes one after the other, more often his seniors than not, yet maintained a laid back attitude when it came to being really serious about romance.
Now in their high school, it has been a while since Izumi has left the city and is in a long distance relationship with Naohiko. Eiji, still a single, wonders if he has been missing something in his life. Maybe it's just his poor grades but for the time being, he wants to avoid Ikezawa, his strict, serious and diligent classmate, as much as possible. Furthermore, he is aware of Taichi, a boy from a different class, who has a crush on Ikezawa.
The romantic story involving six boys and girls is about to unfold as they don't know love yet.
Written by the same author who wrote Nijiiro Days, "We Don't Know Love Yet" is set in the same world and has similar themes. But this is slightly more serious.
The story revolves around 6 boys and girls. This is just the start but really it looks pretty promising as each chapter never bores you.
Eiji seems more like someone who doesn't really care about true love as his interests change all the time during middle school but his development is really interesting as starts to think back. Naohiko, a friend of his, has not experienced love but soon gets to like Izumi, a childhood
friend of Eiji. Then the story moves to the future in their high school days. Izumi has left due to her parents' jobs, but Eiji and Naohiko (who keeps in touch with Izumi) are still in the same high school. Here, 3 more characters are introduced, Ikezawa, the seemingly cold-hearted girl, Taichi, a boy who has fallen for Ikezawa but does not have the courage to speak to her, and finally we have Fujimiura, a girl who doesn't seem to be in the right path of love...
Very interesting story, just like Nijiiro days, but the characters' love interests are intertwined a bit more. It feels more realistic than the first too. This is definitely a story that has huge potential in the future and I have complete trust in Mizuno Minami to make it into a success (although to me, it already is)
I've always loved Mizuno Minami's art style ever since I read Nijiiro Days. I don't know how to describe it but it has a very fresh feeling to it that makes you want to see more of it, and the more you see it, the more pleasing it is to your eyes.
Good character development. Not too slow, not too fast. Eiji's development is particularly interesting, because although he is the main character we don't get many scenes where we see what he thinks. Something is missing from him, but he doesn't seem to know what it exactly is. Naohiko's development is also good, as his long-distance relationship (I swear more than 70% of LDRs end up badly) doesn't seem to be going too well, and his interactions with Fujimiura is starting to question his current relationship. I think this made me understand the reason behind the author's choice of title.
Really enjoying reading this manga so far, and I hope it continues.
If you loved Minami sensei's previous work, Nijiiro Days, or any of her previous works for that matter, then you'll love this one. It has everything that made Nijiiro Days so great. A sharp and beautiful art style, love-able characters, interesting premise, and a wonderful sense of immersion in the world.
However, unlike Nijiiro Days', this new story has a more meloncholy feel to it. It's not as sunny all the time and it looks like we will be dealing with more serious issues this time around. This manga is still very new so there isn't much to say, however, it has started very strong.
I said, if you loved Nijiiro Days, you don't want to miss this one!
