A Galaxy Next Door
Volume 1


Ichirou Kuga has a lot on his hands beyond his pen. Ever since his father's recent passing, he has been the sole provider for his younger siblings Machi and Fumio, as well as taking on the duties of being a landlord. All of this is on top of managing his shoujo manga career, for which he just barely received recent success in spite of constant deadlines and a lack of assistants. But Ichirou is still determined to pull through for the sake of his siblings' future, until one day his editor gives him a call with some promising news.

Racing outside to find his new assistant, Ichirou meets 19-year-old Shiori Goshiki, who soon reveals herself to be a beautiful young woman with talent through some quick inking. With this being her very first job in the industry and having gotten into manga only recently, Shiori seems out of this world—in more ways than one as Ichirou learns after a mid-work nap when he dazedly assumes a pointy pen is sticking out of her body and reaches out to save her. But when she wakes up and immediately tells him that touching her stinger essentially renders them betrothed, Ichirou doesn't know what to think!

Preliminary (5/37 eps)
Since there aren't any reviews for this manga, I thought I'd write a short one.

Story 8/10
I'm only at chapter 5, so I can't comment much about the story, but so far there hasn't been much drama (which is good) and the fmc has a special circumstance (no spoilers but you learn about it in the first chapter) which makes the story slightly more unique.

Art 10/10
The art is great, it really fits the tone of the manga. I especially like the cover art for vol 1 where there are stars in the fmc eyes.

Character 8/10
The progression between the 2 MCs has been pretty fast and they ...

Preliminary (5/37 eps)
After only five chapters, I can tell this will be a GREAT series! Not at all surprised that this is getting an anime adaptation come 2023.

Quick premise. Most of these details are revealed on the first chapter so I do not consider these as spoilers.

MC is a competent mangaka down on his luck a bit financially and is also taking care of a couple of siblings to boot. His latest deadline is near. In comes the FMC sent by his editor which has a bit of a fantastical backstory (but easier to swallow after a few chapters.) The FMC is what they call a ...

Preliminary (9/37 eps)
This review may contain some content from chapter 1
I had a thought of reading this for a while but there weren't that many chapters so I thought that I should've waited a bit more till there's at least a decent amount to read, but the cover and the title of the manga caught my attention. I really wouldn't have ever given a thought that it would've been a "manga" Manga, I don't really have any complaints though since I loved reading and watching Bakuman and nozaki-kun.

Overall: 7

Story: 6
As soon as i started reading it, the manga went into a route I've seen a lot ...
