This manga is about two best friends: Sumika Murasame and Ushio Kazama. Ushio has a seemingly endless series of crushes on other girls—specifically, on cute girls. She's oblivious to the fact that her athletic, sarcastic and distinctly *un*cute friend Sumika is in love with her. When a couple of girls in their class realize their feelings and form a club just for girls who like girls, things to seem like they're beginning to improve...

Volume 6: Kamisama to Dance

Before delving into a review a primer on certain theories in film and comics is needed.

The two main components of cinema is montage and mise-en-scene. The former is about how the placement of shots are edited together while the latter is about how the shot is composed in the first place (atmosphere, props, gesture of characters etc...). Certain film theorists have stances as to whether a montage heavy approach (e.g. the fast moving shots of Fight Club and Trainspotting) or an atmospheric approach (e.g. the deep focus shots of Citizen Kane or The Trial) is better. French New Wave theorist Bazin sides with the read more

Good things about Sasameki Koto:
Decent art, strong characters. The main two protagonists are both in depth and likeable characters. You really grow to care for them. Also the first 3 side characters are great too.

Bad things about Sasameki Koto (spoilers):
Just as you think there's about to be some actual progress to real romance the author throws some annoying contrived cliche drama at you over and over again until he runs out of options and ends the manga like it should have done 30 chapters ago. Annoying transfer student shows up and gets in the way? Of course! Main character has some past trauma that prevents read more

Well, that was a mistake.

In exploring all genres of anime/manga, I had decided to explore the various yuri/shoujo-ai titles available to read and watch. Apart from watching the anime version of Sakura Trick, this would be my first encounter with the genre. If anything, I should have built up to this. I should have watched all the cheap, fan-service-laden trash that accounts for most yuri titles. But no, I had to right to the top of the mountain.

It's not perfect. The art varies, swaying between blank-faced background characters and... the Big Emotional Scenes, which are so well done, I can only guess how many times read more

Well drawn story that dosnt go anywhere. Basically two girsl meet and then they try to propose to each other whole time, well actualy they dont even propose they just say that they want and that stays so till last 2 pages where they kis and thats the story.

Well i actually liked first 5 volumes a lot even tho story dosnt go anywher its is still funny and interesting to experience. HOWEVER after volume 5 story suddenly becomes pure trash. I think Author just got out of ideas and was thinkig that because previous volumes were so good he can now sell anything and people read more
