Probably the best shoujo ai manga out there, Fragtime tells the story of two lovers who stop time together to escape reality and deepen their relationship. For anyone who isn't a yuri/shoujo ai fan, dont feel offput by this as the storyline and unique characters will make up for it. This is a good read for everyone regardless their preferences in manga.
With the ability to stop time, theres a lot of potential for needless fanservice and moeblob panel fillups, however Sato stuck to what was important and kept the story intriguing, while still allowing a few cute scenes. My only problem with the storyline is the overall length of it, I felt as though more could be expanded upon in certain areas
The art doesn't stand out too much here, but it's still smoothly laid out and appealing to the eye, perhaps some larger more detailed artwork would have been better
The girls you get to know within Fragtime have fluent and realistic personalities while remaining unique in their own ways. I personally was able to relate to Moritani, and I think with a widespread set of character personalities others will be able to relate with the other characters too :)
Fragtime will stand out for me as one of the most enjoyable manga I've read, everything from start to finish was an emotional rollercoaster that leaves the reader satisfied yet wanting more. This kind of enjoyable atmosphere is what a Mangaka should strive to create!
All in all, Fragtime is a beautifully done quick read that deserves more attention from the wider community. If ever a translated paperback is sold, I want it x3 read more
