It's very refreshing to read a manga that's about adults living on their own, rather than a teen going though the mundane journey known as high-school. (or middle school)
This story is about a young woman named Machi who is in a charade of a same sex marriage with her best friend Hana to get her parents to stop forcing suitors onto her.
Hana did confess back in high-school she has a lesbian crush on Machi, so it's a little awkward for Machi.
Hana is so cute, she's a carefree commission artist and she does act polite and a little awkward towards Machi.
This manga does touch a little
on homophobia and sexism in the Japanese workplace as women are refused job they're qualified for because they're expected to quit as soon as they get married.
Machi had a pretty restricted life thanks to her overbearing mother controlling every aspect of her life. Mostly because her husband would scold her about looking like a laughing stock to the rest of the family. So, Machi decided she was better off alone and taking whatever job that'll satisfy her parents.
Hana does end up being a good influence as Machi starts being more assertive and doing what she wants, since Machi admires Hana being a carefree person who actually enjoys her job.
This is a really cute manga, I'm glad I got it on a whim!
Understandably, the story's pacing goes by pretty quick as it's pretty short, I wish it a twice as long I had a great time reading it.
