Random Quote:
"Life...Life isn't so bad. If you keep living, you will someday find something good. And maybe that's no consolation...because I think there are plenty of bad things in the world. But...I am sure happiness and kindness are hiding somewhere right nearby. If nothing else, morning comes same for everyone. It's up to you what you'll make from that."

So, why should one read vignettes about random people? I think maybe because one can relate them with real life, the stories depicted in this manga are not about happy endings, or some special people. It's about life, life of normal people, and these people read more

Coming to grips with the harsh realities one faces in adolescence, the insecurity of one's place and purpose in the world, the realization of one's true self, and the impact that society can have on a person: these are all realistic obstacles and troubles that humans face every day.

Rather than one overarching story plot, the story divides itself into multiple short stories with different characters and their own array of problems. Overall, most of the stories are well done as each handles the situation in their own way, whether there was a good result in the end or not. The 4th chapter is read more

Inio Asano is absolutely brilliant! It boggles my mind why people that I know haven't read his works. After finishing "Nijigahara Holograph", upon recommendation from a fellow MAL user Ultimalord, I was absolutely impressed at the level of depth and characterization in the very few chapters. "Sekai no Owari to Yoake Mae" delivers this same quality with ease.

Story: 9

Sekai is a collection of stories that alone are mere glimpses into individual lives. There is a harshness to each of these fragments that deliver home a very dark reality. All of these fragments are tied together by a plethora of thematic strings, but in short read more

Personal, emotional turmoil has a way of rearing its hideous and unpleasant head at the worst times. Just whenever one believes to have conquered an insecurity, gain a true understanding of self, or have found peace with someone, it falls apart or is demolished by something unforeseen. Situations like these have been utilized in manga many times before, but it seems that there is an abundance of duds that fail to capture the feelings and/or tell it an engaging fashion. Fortunately, not every manga must fall under that disappointing and dismaying category. "Before Dawn and the End of the World" is a great collection of read more
