Overall I would give this manga a 7.5, if I read this back in high school, I would think it was trash and weird. But as an adult, I actually liked it a lot.
This manga is a josei, and it hit hard at some points. The author truly understood how complex and confusing our feelings and actions are, especially when it comes to love.
All the characters are so annoying but only because they're filled with flaws, you wish they could see their mistakes and immaturity, but you also realize that they're human.
So to explain my ratings
Story: 7, even though I loved the story, there
are some parts I didn't enjoy, maybe because it feels outdated. Also because of how short it was, some plot lines had to be rushed. The ending felt incomplete, but because it was left for the readers interpretation, I was able to see an ending where it seemed harsh and realistic.
Art: 7, it has the 90's/early 2000's manga look, with long eyelashes and pouty lips, but i dig it, it just feels right.
Character: 8, honestly character writing is amazing, all the flaws really made you sorta reflect on your own flaws that we try to hide. The only issue i see is that some characters didn't get a light shined on, and i think it would've made the story stronger
Enjoyment: 8, Like i said in the beginning, this manga would've sucked if I read it at a younger age, I'd just be confused why these adults were making these stupid mistakes. But as an adult who makes stupid mistakes and complicated feelings, it was kinda nice reading this story and feeling validated. What takes out of the enjoyment was how I had to read this through 5 different manga sites because some only had parts of chapters...
To restate, I give it overall a 7.5, which is high for a manga that looks like it should be lower.
This review was written 1am after I sat in my room reevaluating my life.
