Souta, a penniless, phoneless, destitute middle schooler, met a high school girl with a stray cat underneath a bridge. The girl laughed at his minuscule remaining change, and made a surprising proposal with "For this 24 yen of yours, I'll let you buy me," and then...!?

This is a corny romance with a trite message that despite being a short manga, drags on unnecessarily. The idea for this story is similar to an old passage from the bible. "Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents. Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, 'Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all read more

By Spring is a short Drama, Romance and Seinen series that serialised between late 2019 to November of 2020 running for a little over one year. I found this series kind of randomly, no recommendation no nothing, one day I just kinda found it while scrolling through Mangakakalot, the artwork piqued my interest and I was kinda interested by the plot, so, I gave it a read.

[Story - 5/10]
The series follows a very basic premise, Middle school kid Souta who lives with his single mother, are living in near poverty and Souta (the absolute big brain) Spends his money on a rumoured prostitute who lives read more

So, I don't know how to start it, but sorry for my bad english, I'm studying yet.

Story 7/10 - That story could be more developed if this manga had more chapters, because we can think in very different things to integrate in the plot. The idea to have a drama romance involving "prostitution"/payment is really good, in that story could have explorated more the mommy's issues and other people discovering about the girl, and how she had to explain waht she was doing, and how the rival girl get her horrible personality. Also we saw a critic about prostitution, mental problems, money problems and choices read more

I can't believe this is rated so low! This is my second review in the 6 years of being on this website. That is how much I believe this is underrated!

First of all I truly believe this manga would benefit from having a "psychological" tag, that is because its not a story about prostitution at all! It is a story about ABUSE!

I really think a lot of people are missing the point, or maybe missed a lot of the early subtle(and less than subtle) indicators that this was an abuse focused story. On a surface level it may appear as the main character is stupid read more
