No spoilers.

"Sekai no Owari to Yoakemae" or "Before Dawn and the End of The World" is a volume with 9 one-shots by Inio Asano. Mostly it is about young people or people in general with their problems in everyday life, as is the case in most of Inio Asano's mangas. Sekai no Owari convinces with the very good stories and with a lot of variation between the different one-shots. So you might even find yourself in one of the one-shots and let Inio Asano's creativity convince you. Yes, I am a big fan of Inio Asano.

"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
