Watami Meguru pleaded to his mom to let him move out on his own to experience being independent. She finally agrees to let Meguru rent out a room for the summer. But his sadistic mother makes the wall between him and his neighbor out of glass, meaning there is no privacy between the two rooms. If living openly with a stranger wasn’t insane enough, his neighbor is a cute girl his age, Kana. They immediately get off on the wrong foot and this isn’t what Meguru imagined it would be like at all.

A short and sweet romantic story that makes your jawbones hurt from smiling, what could possibly compare?

A very original twist to the "boy meets girl" template, this time with our protagonist living next to the heroine, with a glass window separating between them instead of a wall.

Have your curiosity peaked from this brief summary? or are you still skeptical? For those of you who are still with me, allow me to elaborate on some of this story's strong points:

The story: Is consistent, coherent, well-paced, well executed piece. No complaints whatsoever. No plot holes, no useless fan-service, no bullshit. Nothing too fast or too read more

If you're looking for a cute romance manga, then you should read Senakagurashi.

The story has a clear destination, there's no beating around the bush of any sort.

The art is very good, I personally like the art style.

The Characters weren't generic and they weren't boring (especially the main guy).

I don't really have words to describe how good this manga was (without spoilers anyway), all I know is that when I saw the average rating of this manga a 7.6 here, I just knew that I had to step in and put a review. This manga made me grin a lot from the pure cute/romance that it read more

Senakagurashi is great for anyone looking for a quick fix of sugar. The problem with a lot of romance manga nowadays is they tend to go on and on, to the point where you get sweetness overload and just wanting the manga to end (see: Kimi no Iru Machi)

However, Senakagurashi at only 3 volumes is a near perfect length for the story it wants to tell. It showcases the month they spent together and their eventual development in a well-paced and digestible manner. It's sweet and refreshing all through-out.

The two main characters play off of each other fantastically. The side characters, though not getting much read more

In a teenage love story, of course they are living together. At least the execution is good. On the bright side, you will forget about this story once you are done, so you can enjoy it a second time.

Story: 6
A young man moves out to live on his own for the summer, and ends up living with a cute girl. The only thing not cliche about the set up is the fact they basically share a room separated by frosted glass. The story is nothing new, going through the typical misunderstandings and falling in love. However, where this story excels is execution, which is what read more
