Is Love the Answer?
Volume 1


Chika Hanai cannot fathom the concept of romance. During high school, she was uncomfortable with being touched by her former boyfriend, and things did not work out with the next guy her friends introduced her to, either. Clueless about the social cues around dating, she feels alienated from the rest of the world, wondering if something is wrong with her.

In hopes of figuring herself out, Chika enrolls in a college in Tokyo where a psychology professor she greatly admires teaches. By pure chance, Chika meets the professor, Shinobu Ishii, who—instead of advising her how to be "normal"—gives Chika the words she needed the most: she does not have to fall in love. Meeting peers who also feel differently about affection and receiving Professor Ishii's advice, Chika comes to understand that she is not alone in this confusing world and that love might not be the answer to everything.

I thought that this manga was just..okay. When I heard it was about an aroace character, that got me excited to read it. But I can only say im sort of..disappointed? The characters felt quite bland, and it bothered me that Chika mentioned that asexual people can still fall in love, yet throughout the rest of the manga aromanticism and asexuality are still treated as the same thing. They're not. The title is "Is Love The Answer?" but she's an asexual woman. In general the manga felt very surface level and bland, the characters aren't developed on a lot, and it doesn't feel like they ...

The concept of romance which dazzles around the eyes of an adolescent in hope of an ideal high school life accompanied by an relentless anticipation and an unexpected introspection.

'Is Love the Answer" or locally known as 'Kimi no Sekai wa Nai is a one-shot manga by Isaki Uta who have also created other works tackling with similar themes of asexuality in adolescents and people around them.

The story is somewhat promising with its profound concept of promoting asexuality in the mind of its readers but fails in many prospects to make it a success. The story follows ...
