In the dismal backdrop of New York City, Southern-belle-turned-prostitute Sunny meets the college-educated Lou, who makes a living by out-drinking people at bars.

Preliminary (Unknown/12 eps)
I have the highest respect for this manga, simply because of the art. I have yet to see a more realistic manga that this. The proportions and colored shading are beautiful.

The Other Side of the Mirror isn’t worth your time.

I will be honest, I'd seen the positive reviews for it, but after I read it I had… no words. If you want a story about love persisting through hardship and an unlikely but beautiful romance, look somewhere else. This isn’t it.

I won’t even deign to rate the art on this one– it’s good, sure, but that is completely irrelevant in the face of the shallow story and oh, how could I forget, the blatant racism. Yeah. Yeah that’s right. But no, that’s not the only reason this manhua isn’t worth your time.
The story ...
