Like arya stark, the main characters of Hatsukoi Shinjuu: "Shinji" and "Koyoko" worship the god of death only(Lol). Hatsukoi Shinjuu is a very thought provoking manga that is deserving of anyone's attention.

Death is certain but why do we live if we know we are going to die" blah blah blah, we live because we know we are going to die". Death is the strongest bond anyone can have with another person, knowing someone will be with you when it is your time to go. These concepts are what drives Shinji and Kokoyo through their unforgettable Journey.

"...words have no mass but they're terribly heavy"

STORY: 7.5/10
If you haven't noticed from the (english) title already...Yes, this isn't going to be your typical happy go-lucky romance story.

The pacing and direction of the story flowed very well from beginning to end, the ups and downs of the protagonists' adventure together were narrated very well and surprisingly, there were a healthy amount of comedic scenes involved. What I truly admired in this department is the fact that the story never failed to remind you the dark themes it read more

This is a pretty good manga if you can get past the whole idea of committing suicide. During the two characters journey together they find happiness as they inevitably know their destination.

Despite it being a good read for me, the ending was rushed as you didn't get really know one of the character's back story that well. This manga was most likely axed which gave it an unsatisfied ending for me. Although I did feel that the read more

Hatsukoi Shinjuu is one of those hidden gems you find every once in a while. It isn't perfect but it has some fantastic and emotionally jarring moments. The main theme of the show is death and because of this everyone is able to take something from this manga. The story asks some extremely messy and ambiguous questions that make the story extremely interesting.

The journey the two main characters take together is extremely enjoyable. Since these characters are suicidal it makes their personality and outlook on life much different, and therefore much more interesting. I am not sure if what has been released so far is read more
