An unhappy girl who engages in self-harm, a high schooler ostracized by her classmates, and an old woman looking to live out her twilight years in peace—what could three such different people have in common? That's what grade schooler Nanoka Koyanagi is trying to find out. Assigned by her teacher to define what "happiness" means to her, Nanoka tries to find her place in the world by exploring her relationships with these three strangers, and through them, comes to know herself.

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.

'Happiness does not walk on its own to you. You have to use your own feet to reach it.'

What is happiness to you?

A simple question, but the number of answers is almost infinite...

This may be a manga that could help you find your own meaning of happiness.

Story: 9
I decided to read this because it was done by the same author and artist involved in 'Kimi no Suizou wo Tabetai' (KimiSui). This is based on the novel of the same name.

The story focuses on Nanaka and her interactions with various people as she tries to find the best answer for the meaning of happiness, read more

What is happiness? A simple question that this manga tries to answer beautifully.
Its hard to write a review with out spoiling too much of this brilliantly written story

Over All 10/10
The story is short. In the 12 chapters the author says what they need to and does not drag out the story. the pacing felt right. nothing was rushed and nothing felt like the author dragging it out

Story 10/10

It's time to roast Mata, Onaji Yume wo Miteita...(with major plot spoilers) In short, it is a pretentious character study about 4 'individuals'.

While the series attempts to pretend to be deep using the 'meaning of life' allegory, it’s ridiculously easy to tell what’s happening in the story. And it’s also bad portraying how to help someone with mental health issues, because our main character is a brat who thinks she’s smart but has some of the most facepalm-worthy moments I've read in a manga. Why? Because she's a moe blob spouting nonsense!
