Most likely you have never heard of this manga ("Ooshima-chan Cannot Say her Own Name"), but you may know another one by this mangaka which recently got a controversial anime adaption known as "Aku no Hana." Shino-chan resembles Aku no Hana in more ways than just the very similar art style (the manga's of course not the anime's style).

Story - 8/10

For a manga that only consists of 11 short 20 page chapters, this manga manages to have a well rounded story with good character development (for a short manga), interesting characters, and a very good ending. Even if you're a slow reader like me, it'll read more

Lately, I've been looking to oshimi shuuzou's series, so I found this manga and I read it in a few days since it is short so I decided to make a brief opinion on it.

I had an expectative on this manga, since other works from this mangaka show readers characters with some deep problem and hard situations to manage in their lives.

So this story, is pretty short, as a result it is hard to develope a complex story on it. But the main concept is not that different, there is a girl, Shino, who has a problem related to get involved with others because she read more

TL;DR: Read the first chapter. If you like it keep reading, if you don't then stop there, because it is just more of the same.

On a personal level and a critical level, I did not enjoy shino-chan wa jibun no namae ga Ienai. However, I do understand why some people might. It's different than most people read and sometimes that is enough.

The story has a syncopated rhythm to it, which could have been effective if the events had any actual impact (besides the ending, which was impactful, but not well written). The story spun its wheels for a while, making it hard read more

The story was good but 6/10
I related a lot with the main protagonist (Shino) of this manga. It's about a girl who has troubles of speaking and anxiety. As someone who has trouble communicating with others face to face, I could feel her pain. But I have one big problem with this manga, and I was very unsatisfied with it. It was the ending.

This might have spoilers but yeah. If you don't wanna see spoilers, you shouldn't read this portion:
The ending was very rushed. I thought Shino was gonna sing for her friend who just humiliated herself by singing in the stage. But read more
