Suffering from a terminal illness, Yuuta's mother asks him to film her last moments, which he does. From her radiant smile when she is with her family to the times when sickness ravages her body in the hospital, he records hours upon hours of footage. After her passing, Yuuta compiles her life into a movie to screen at his school, deciding to add a bit of fantasy to the ending of his film, Dead Explosion Mother, with a literal explosion!

Following the backlash caused by his supposedly tone-deaf portrayal of his mother's death, Yuuta trudges to the hospital roof to take his own life—but there, he meets a girl named Eri. Captivated by his film, Eri requests Yuuta to make a new one that will blow the previous out of the water and prove his critics wrong. The movie they set out to make will stand apart by blurring the line between fact and fiction. And of course, it wouldn't be a Yuuta film if it didn't have his personal flavor—just a dash of fantasy.

People come and go, but their memories stay with us, and it's our duty to keep them alive.

It's one thing to have a masterpiece under your belt at any age. It's another thing to have multiple, and it's ANOTHER thing to have four of them back to back before you've even hit 30. I may be biased, but I really do think that Fujimoto-sensei has already set the gold standard for mangaka moving forward, and this oneshot is the perfect guide on how he does it.

What I assumed was just Fujimoto talking about a dead relative turned into a story showcasing his obvious love of ...

We got another Fujimoto one shot and there are still no news on Chainsaw Man Part 2, but I don't even care. This man does everything good.

The following review will be me fanboying Fujimoto. And it will contain a bit of spoilers.

Goodbye Eri. 10/10 imo

You read the tittle and think it would be a cliché one shot when one of the characters die, and you would be right. At least for the first 100 pages. But when you read halfway through, story changes a bit. Now you don't know if something is happening or just acting, it honestly blew and fascinated me. As well the ...

Mixed Feelings
I believe that for a manga of this length, it is overly complicated so much so that the topics the autors tries to tacle become almost a parody of their real life counterparts. In the end you are almost left to decide whether everything or nothing really burdened the life of our protagonist and thus the story looses all of its weight because you can't base the story on any concrete truth. For some this might be great but for me it's keeping the story so vague that you might find deeper meaning where there is none to find.

And I can't really agree with statements ...
