'Raw' is the word I would use to describe Hope. It deals with some very dark, heavy concepts. Reading it, I felt hurt a lot. The protagonist goes through many trials and tribulations.

This pain is honestly the major draw of Hope. The art expresses it very well. There were a few times where I just had to stop and admire the depth of what I was looking at. Riding the highs and lows of the journey was quite enthralling.

But these are the only outstanding qualities of Hope. Even if I enjoyed myself, Hope lacks heavily in story and character development.

Wow ... I just finished this manga and it is very hard for me to find the right words!

For me, this manga was extremly captivating!

The main character suffers a lot, learns a lot and shines at the end. I could simply not stop reading it!

The story is definitely not a typical shojo manga, it's a lot darker but therefore sooo much more interesting!

The only things I'd like to chriticize are that sometimes the story seems to jump a little (some issues are left unaddressed) and that the character development could be a bit more pronounced. But overall it is totally worth it!

Please give this manga read more
