Volume 1


"I spent all my time wondering 'What if?' Then one day I woke up and I was 33."

Rinko doesn't think she's that bad-looking, but before she knew it, she was thirty-something and single. Now she wants to get married by the time the Tokyo Olympics rolls around in six years, but… that might be easier said than done!

It's not worthy of an Eisner. Story wise, everything was typical, you can easily guess what would happen next. And this is not me hating on a cliche, a cliche can be good if done right (Ex: How to train your dragon). The main guy character is needlessly abusive and he gets a pass for everything that he does to the main character just because he had a traumatic/sad past. I'm sorry but this only promotes a very bad example for women, that they can change a bad man into an ideal man. How many times have we seen this and how often did it read more

Last month a very strange thing happened. I found myself reading, God forbid, a heterosexual manga. And on top of that, I found myself sincerely enjoying it too. So how did I even get into this position?

Well, it’s my love of Akiko Higashimura’s previous works that brought me to Tokyo Tarareba Girls. The cast consisting of women in their 30’s was the part that really intrigued me. It’s so rare to see mangas about people past high school and young adulthood, and especially ones from the perspective of working women. The closest other thing I can think of to this perspective is Turning Girls, the read more

I love Higashimura's work and when I heard of this one and it's plot I was immediately interested.
The first and second volume and a bit of the third were so intensely engaging with amazing life quotes and steady rising flow, but by the 4th volume that intensity slowed and you reach the point of where all the characters' are stuck in their own kind of slump and conflict more individually but still together since they are the tokyo tarareba girls.
I really recommend picking this up since it's getting a physical release this summer (I read it digitally because I thought such a niche title would read more

I was surprised to find that this manga's score is below 8 and this would e the first review! This my first review so bear with me :D
This manga is amazing. You might find the main characters annoying but be patient. It's great!

*This contains may spoilers*

The story is great it mainly deals with how society looks at women. It questions society standards. Why must women end up married? is that women's happiness? What is happiness? What's wrong with living freely and being independent? It deals with this and how it pressures women and their search for happiness
The character which is the voice of the society read more
