Shimizu Makoto, a team leader at an industrial firm, leads a fulfilling life as the work is both rewarding and pays well. However, she indulges in an embarrassing pastime: creating girls love doujinshi she sells at conventions.

Though Shimizu does her best to keep this hobby hidden from her colleagues, a chance encounter at a doujin convention leads her coworker Akane Maekawa to learn of her secret. Much to Shimizu's surprise, Maekawa seems interested in learning more—even visiting Shimizu's apartment to borrow DVDs.

As the two girls grow closer, Shimizu discovers the value of sharing one's passion with someone else, all while attempting to figure out her complicated feelings toward Maekawa.

The best part was the characters, as a software engineer (nominee) I loved that Shimizu is a nerd software engineer who likes to be herself etc. I kinda find myself in her personality, on the other hand, I loved ...

I still don't know exactly why I don't like Still Sick. It's a manga about being a mangaka, and maybe part of me finds that kind of self indulgent? Maybe it's the characters, who despite feeling pretty realistic, are also deeply annoying to me? Maybe it's that the story feels light and fast, but also slow as fuck where it matters? This is going to be a little different to my usual review style, because I'm still having difficulty articulating exactly what's going on here, so you'll be seeing a lot of how this manga made me feel, and some tentative guesses as to why, ...
