Synopsis

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...

Background

Sasameki Koto has been published in English as Whispered Words by One Peace Books since May 13, 2014.

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.
