I want to write a review for this that doesn't mention Girls' Last Tour, but I really can't figure out how, so bear with me.

Shimeji Simulation is the second major manga from Tsukumizu, the first being the aforementioned Girls' Last Tour. If you've read GLT or follow Tsukumizu on Twitter, you're probably familiar with their signature "touch of darkness;" everything they do seems to have a hint of sadness tucked away inside.

This was really easy to see in GLT. While much of the manga was comedic or relaxing, it was undeniably a post-apocalyptic manga filled with moments of sadness and melancholy. Because of that, what read more

Shimeji Simulation has been mangaka, Tsukumizu's latest project since the completion of Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryoukou. Like SSR, it focuses on two ordinary (enough) girls in extraordinary circumstances, and like its predecessor, it is a Slice of Life+ story i.e. SoL framed by larger-than-life occurrences in the world.

Where SSR places our protagonists in a post-apocalyptic megacity, not unlike Blame! that has already seen its fair share of apocalypses, Shimeji Simulation introduces us to the normal, unremarkable town of West Yomogi. Of course things couldn't be farther from normal: the town's geography may change overnight, the laws of physics break every now and then, and of course read more

Melancholic moe comedy with surreal decaying brutalist feel.

In its core it's a standard laid-back 4-pannel gag series and a nice one at that. Most jokes aren't great, some are very miss, others fairly too absurd for some people's liking, but it's all about the atmosphere and that it has in spades.

It acts like any other cute girls in high school manga, but adds contemplative tone and fittingly under-explained semi-surreal setting. The world is eerily empty and seemingly vast and complex. Strange anomalies get hand-waved and nobody seems to know or care about what's going on, the manga included. All the while it adds more comically read more

A manga that I've been looking for ever since I finished reading Shoujo Shuumatsu. Simple, moe, kinda deep, and pretty funny for me.
When I saw the manga at first I thought it might be a backstory for Shoujo Shuumatsu but no, it seems like a sidestory or a new series. IDK
Seeing weird things on their heads made it funny for me and it's a unique art design, I really like it.

It's my first time reviewing an anime or manga, but this manga series by Tsukumizu is simple and comforting. I've been reading Shoujo Shuumatsu multiple times and I saw this new series last read more
