You know how in 4-komas they somehow have some kind of story? Even though there's very little panels, the artist manages to do a lot with them. Granted this isn't a 4-koma...

Reading manga for long periods of time whether digitally or physically tends to make your body sore. Maybe that's how this artist got the idea for this.

The story of Stretch revolves around the two main characters, Keiko and Ran, who shares an apartment. It's about their daily life, relationship, and the funny read more
