Elementary school student Nanoka Koyanagi considers herself weird. She often uses it as an excuse to avoid doing things she dislikes, such as participating in her physical education class or getting along with her classmates. Out of concern and good will, her teacher assigns her to find the meaning of "happiness."

While Nanoka thinks about her homework, she often meets Abazure-san, a cheerful lady who helps her save a cat. Nanoka also pays regular visits to Obaa-chan, an old woman spending her twilight years in the woods. One day, Nanoka gets lost in the forest and stumbles across a high school girl named Minami committing self harm. As Nanoka gets closer to these three unique individuals, their stories and experiences shape for her a pathway toward soul-searching and self-discovery.

I read this with high expectations knowing how highly it is rated.. so here goes.

Story: Great story. The ending is a bit iffy for me, but I know if I spend some time dissecting it I will all come together (I hope).

Art: Art is crisp and clean.

Character: The characters of the story were great, they played integral parts of the plot and I loved it.

Enjoyment: I wanted to read more and more about this little girl's life. I wanted to know what all the characters had to do with each other. I definitely enjoyed it.

Overall: Very good. I do recommend it.

Mixed Feelings
If you're going into this having read I Want to Eat Your Pancreas (another work by the same author and artist), you will be disappointed. If you're going into this without having read I Want to Eat Your Pancreas, stop and go read that instead. The first half of this manga pissed me off. Every message it reaches is used to beat you over the head, drilling it into you in an unbearably obvious and condescending way. The plot doesn't feel like it's going anywhere until a little over halfway through. Even near the end when I realized what it was trying to do, I ...

Ok hold up.

You probably seen the other reviews and you might also be aware that this manga comes from the author of "I want to eat your pancreas" and "Kakushigoto", but unlike those previous works that I mentioned, this one is garbage, the only reason that I didn't rate this any lower, is because it's short and I'd rather read this again, than to watch SAO. This manga's main gimmick is "happiness" or at least how the characters and narrative discusses it, and the execution was as bland as it's premise. It was uninspired and it feels like a 5 years old child wrote it. ...
