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 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 realistic 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, read more

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. :)
