Tsurebito is a beautiful story, and there's nothing quite like it. Its concept might not be original, but it was carried out superbly. I can't really think of any stories I've read that is similar to this one.

For such a short manga, it grips at my heart multiple times, and with the exciting story telling, I wish the manga never ends. However, it was best that it is only this short. Sure, there are questions unanswered, and the world in this manga can be expanded much more and used to create multiple stories. But I think it is because of this length that it was read more

If you like resolution in the stories that you read, then this will likely interest you. I have never read a story with such a mysterious beginning and open ended vibe that has been able to conclude in a satisfying ending that answers pretty much every question that you could have about it. The author does a splendid job at tying everything together and while things do remain a mystery during the events of the story, everything is made to fit like a puzzle and makes complete sense in the end. The storytelling is wonderful, and I just couldn't help but read the whole series read more

I finished reading “Tsurebito” by Akihito Yoshitomi and wanted to give a short review. The manga is self concluding and has only 23 chapters. It tells a story that tells us about death, where we are going. It is also a story of a love lost by tragedy.

A tragedy for which other tragedies are born, and other loves are born. The manga also shows us how real and deep the soul of another can be, the worst parts of one. Being short, it does not introduce many characters, but it manages to connect very well with the most important ones.

I’ve been waiting for a group to pick this manga up again for many years, and I am so happy now! I can say again what I said the first time I saw it: “Dem backgrounds!” The plot and the characters are good too, yet it remains to be seen what they arrive to, but the surreal, detailed, imaginative backgrounds get 20/10 right now, I can’t stress enough how beautiful they are.

The “Interstice”, the place besides the world of the living, where the protagonist ends, is one of the more imaginative surreal spaces of the manga medium. It looks its role of being the dumping read more
