Synopsis

Ten stories about the everyday life of Sei, an idealistic songwriter, and Miho, the young woman who struggles to support the both of them.

Miho and Sei are living together. She works at a boutique while he tries to make it as a musician. Even though Miho still can’t forget about Hagio, her ex-lover, she is happy in her relationship with Sei. However, all is not well for the young couple. Struggling to make ends meet, Miho decides to take a second job as bar hostess. As she becomes increasingly desperate for money, Miho eventually gives in to one of her client’s sexual advances. When Sei finds out about this he begins to distance himself from her. Things are getting even more complicated for Miho when Hagio suddenly reappears in her life.

This manga is about the everyday life. I like this "normal" feeling. A couple is living together, having their normal life. The protagonist Tsuchida is an insecure girl, who's always thinking about life. She loves Sei of Hagio? The manga is all about where to find happyness and love. I like the end of it, even if it's a little sad.

The art is very lovely, clean and elegant, so I gave it an outstanding. :)

This will be quick and direct

Story 7/10: A slice-of-life story doesn't need to be deep or complex, because, in the end, nobody's life is complex, quoting Yamazaki from Welcome to the NHK! "A drama has a progressive thought, an emotional climax and a resolution, but our lives aren't like that. All we get day after day, are a bunch of vague anxieties that are never really resolved" .

This is what Pumpkin & Mayonnaise is, a simple and realist despiction of a relationship: the drama isn't chessy, the pacing is slow and mundane, the lives of the characters don't feel like something out of reality, Pumpkin read more

A simple story told with subtlety. Every panel is an image unto itself, every detail holds meaning. Nananan is a meticulous artist, a perfectionist who deeply considers the placement of every line (read about her on wikipedia!). But her awareness of the power of narrative structure is also evident both in the framing of this story, and in the idle banter of the characters who are living it.

While the story is "about" Miho and Sei, and involves Miho's unburied feelings toward an ex named Hagio, what we really see are multiple iterations of a similar relationship, one where a man is able to live read more

If you like disappointments and pieces of shits in your life, this is the manga for you and also this is very sad if you encourage people like the main male character Sei.

The dramatic synopsis made me really think I would enjoy this manga. So to that idiot who told me "if it has a good plot, then it's gonna be good, anime or manga without a great plot isn't worth the time." Lemme tell you that reading this shit was a waste of time like you literally have the typical weak and dumb female protagonist named Tsuchida who tries so hard to impress read more
