In a seaside town where very little happens, middle school students Keisuke Isobe and Koume Satou live a rather dull life. But when Koume's crush breaks her heart, their situation becomes quite unordinary. She starts a "no-strings-attached" relationship with Keisuke, whom she had previously rejected, both finding solace in the other in order to fill the emotional voids in their lives. However, being "friends with benefits" becomes complicated when real feelings begin to develop, as the consequences of their relationship start to take their toll on those around them and themselves.

Umibe no Onnanoko takes a harsh look at love, relationships, and the emotional price that will be paid as the result of a decision made between two teenagers.

Known for the acclaimed "Oyasumi Punpun" and "Solanin", Asano Inio has established his talent with both imagery and the written word. His stories are most noticeable for their oppressive and perpetual sense of melancholy, and "Umibe no Onnanoko" is certainly no exception.

Umibe no Onnanoko (lit. Girl of the Sea) is a brief tale of two teenagers' sexual frustration. Where most anime and manga draw the line at a simple kiss or confession, Umibe no Onnanoko starts its first chapter with a sexual encounter. There is no build-up, no confession: the two just decide to share their loneliness by having sex with one another. It is ...

This is going to be a most curious review because if I could have not put a grade on this piece of work, I would have done so.

Before Umibe no Onnanoko, I have read Asano's "Oyasumi Punpun" (10/10), "Solanin" (8/10), "Subarashii Sekai" (with the author's commentaries) (8/10) and "Reiraku" (10/10).

Is Umibe no Onnanoko a great piece of work ? Certainly. Because it made me think so much. Each time I finish one of Asano's work, I am blown away by how much his work makes me think on how I feel about it. However, this is the first time where I "disagree" ...

Umibe No Onnanoko is quite possibly the worst piece of literature that my hands have touched in the past decade.

Now to be fair, I knew absolutely nothing about this manga prior to buying it. Perhaps I should have done my research. When the first sex scene came by I was surprised because, again, I knew literally nothing about the manga. But it was fine. Sex scenes aren't that bad right? I'm sure they have meaning. Oh look another sex scene. And another one. Another one. Another one. Dj khaled can't save me here this book is literally sex and bad story telling.

The actual story ...
