Synopsis

The only thing in Tetsuo's mind is art. The beauty, the nature, and the quality of art. One woman watches him handle his art. Her name is Akira. She watches as he constantly tries to draw day after day, and she oversees the completion of his work at a local art exhibition. Akira apparently has become interested in Tetsuo's love for art and his work. One rainy night, Tetsuo notices that Akira left her umbrella and he decides to deliver it to her. He finds her and gives her the umbrella and doesn't use it as he claims that the umbrella isn't his. As Tetsuo leaves, Akira tells him to wait. He turns around and finds Akira bringing her lips towards his... Love has bloomed in the middle of a rainy night.

A wonderfully composed work of art written by Yoshida Motoi. Natsu no Zenjitsu conveys something genuine and pure that transcends this literary genre we call manga and places itself at the level of realism, depicting real life in full form. Essentially this title is a portrayal of two adults, intertwined in an enigmatic romance that's handled with composure and maturity.

When I speak of maturity, I'm not referring to school girl romances you guys think maybe "mature". No, I'm talking about a series dealing with adults and real problems, justified and consented sexual encounters, debacles solved through intellect, and magnificent artistry to boot.

A problem I find with the anime and manga mediums is their lackluster performance in depicting realistic romantic encounters that a male reader would enjoy. The shounen demographic is filled with romcom series containing 'moe' harem members and inept male protagonists with seemingly no redeeming qualities who somehow manage to attract teenage girls at a rate which would make Justin Bieber jealous. Of course the seinen demographic is a better place to look but 'ecchi' is often the order of the day with a fixation on sex often resulting in there being no actual story. As a result I wasn't really expecting a whole lot read more

Love in the late teen to early midlife certainly had a difference ways to go, if we still called it the same love, as the love is differ with every individual. Here , a young man painter step trough the life with a different perception and value that realistically will held same with every reader that passing or still while reading this , value for the romance they had.

Never one thing could stay the same from the initial, as the whole things will changes during process is held the same way with human live, human love. Leading passive way too will give the read more
