Ano Ko No, Toriko Manga Review
By: Shiraishi Yuki
May 1 2020
After years of being away, Yori came back to his old place to continue studying. With peacefulness in mind, he relieved himself by staying away from people and being contented having those pair of glasses that hides his amazing looks. However, without a warning, he accidentally bumped into her first love which was also a part of his childhood dream. A dream of being an artist. A dream which the three of them pledge. Running away from it now became impossible to Yori with Shizuku on his side. But being a gravure model, Shizuku is having
a hard time getting roles as an actress. With Yori on the scene, the break on the entertainment industry she's waiting to happen will come.
In spite of hoping that there's a happy ending waiting just by being on her side, Subaru, with his charismatic looks and attained name in the industry and eventhough a childhood friend of Shizuku, became a rival of Yori for her heart. The story, like most shoujo stories are, will have its confessions and picking of the two male leads. There will be those cute scenarios that will make your heart flutter.
The technicality of it in relation with being an artist is not that deep unlike Skip Beat. What only makes it possible for them to act and take a role of being an artist is because of how the characters are drawn. Each of the character looks great. The way they stand and the clothes they're wearing, their hands with no signs of deformation, the shadow parts and also the background, it was handled delicately. But most of all, it was how their eyes and expressions were made. It was sharp, but it was also soft. The eyes sold it for me. Even if it's kind of "one of the common path" a shoujo takes, reading something like this once in a while can take away your boredom.
