How a young woman, romantically and professionally broken, will once again get a taste for life when she leaves the city to live in the countryside... Shino feels totally lost in her life. She goes out with a past work colleague, Masaki, quite macho...and troubles at her work make her leave it. She moves out, takes her independence, moves away from Masaki and settles in a tiny room in an old building of suburbs. On her arrival, she finds a little garden she shares with her neighbours, a couple her own age. And little by little, she feels more and more attracted to the mysterious man who lives next door.

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 read more

I'm not going to lie... I wanted to give it a chance after reading the premise and the negative review. And I can't say I was disappointed. On the contrary, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it.

I don't normally read Josei, and if you fall into that category as well you might not want to jump in with this story. It is fun yet bittersweet, with seemingly random moments of comedy. In truth, the comedy is quite dark at times, highlighting the main character's flailing attempts at grasping adulthood.

For starters, the brief up top is not at all accurate, in my opinion. If read more

I felt that the storyline was fairly unique, and to be honest, it caught my eye for a while and was on my "Plan to Read" for a long time. I was actually very excited to get the time to read this manga. Unfortunately, it was very disappointing. I felt very disconnected from the storyline. I couldn't relate in the slightest and I felt that the pace was too slow for me. The overall plot was pretty good, but I didn't feel a connection to it, so I dropped this manga.

The art...wasn't the most appealing that I've seen. It might just be my opinion, but read more
