Three Days of Happiness
Volume 1


Kusunoki used to believe he was destined for great things. Ostracized as a child, he held on to a belief that a good life was waiting for him in the years ahead. Now approaching the age of twenty, he's a completely mediocre college student with no motivation, no dreams, and no money. After learning he can sell his remaining years—and just how little they're worth—he chooses to divest himself of all but his last three months. Has Kusunoki truly destroyed his last chance to find happiness...or has he somehow found it?

This is one of those books that will make you stare at the ceiling after finishing it. And that's literally what i do after reading this in one sitting. I'm thinking about all my life after that last words on the book. The success, the failure, the relationship, the emotion. I can relate with the protagonist in many level.

Although they didn't explain in detail how the selling life things work, it ...

This novel is held in high regard, but it has major problems. The scenario is questionable, but not hard to get over. The main issue is that the author somehow manages to contradict everything he was trying to teach us throughout the majority of the book with an ending that's just trying too hard.

The scenario is that the attractive young love interest Miyagi is magically paired with the MC Kusunoki, with her having to be around him constantly due to circumstances. Even without changing the initial premise of selling your lifespan, was this the best way to bring the two main characters together? Maybe I'm ...

Weapons grade escapism about a government mandated gf assigned to a suicidal 20-something guy. The mandated gf is invisible to everyone else and needs to be glued the MC's side at all times. At one point the guy considers raping the mandated gf but don't worry, she's pretty chill about it. She's kind of depressed too, just like you always imagined she'd be. There's even a bonus Lars and the Real Girl angle where everyone in the community becomes fond of the MC's eccentricity as they watch him interact with his invisible gf--how fortunate that he can both find love and become a beloved facet ...
