(1st review!) WARNING: NSFW (GRAPHIC SEX)
This is such a great read. The story revolves around small novellas following different couples in Japan. The story is striped back, and there aren't always happy ending, but they feel very real, and is a great addition to your Josei list.
Story: There are many short stories, however I could only find a dozen or so translated on various manga scanalation reading websites. Although, you'll want to read more. The stories themselves, as stated before, seems so real. These things may have happened to a friend, or even yourself. It's hard not to implant yourself into the situations- and
I think that makes for a great story!
Art: the style is clean, stark black and white with little to no tones. I think this fits the story very well. The phrase 'no frills' comes to mind. However, this is exactly the kind of art I gravitate toward- as it is very similar to American graphic art styles.
Character: there is no character development as these are only short stories, however I feel like I know these woman- I've gone to coffee with them! The characters are so close to real life, it's scary and they make for a great emotional draw.
Overall: I liked this series and have read it a few times over. If you love Josei- Read this next!
