"God Lies" easily ranks amongst my favourite short series. Overall, the story was reminiscent of the movie "Stand by me". Life goes on even if the world is painted bright blue from afar and cynical and more than a little screwed up on on closer inspection, even for grader schoolers. The two main characters Natsuru and Rio seem to fill the adult role better than their own parents. The outcome of the story is deeply satisfying to see and because of it's length/timespan in the manga, it is perhaps more poignant than "Immortal Rain".
Nothing is farfetched in "God Lies" and it portrays a realistic albeit
highly cynical "life experience" for its protagonists with clean, beautiful panels and good dialogue. I would say that this piece is a lot more polished than her previous works (though it's all good so check out her stuff!!) and therefore highly recommended!
