My first review and apparently the first review for this manga here.
So please go easy on me ^^"
For me , it was the most enjoyable. Realistic to an extent, where the girl is falling in love for the sake of just doing it not for the sake of actually falling inlove with that certain "someone". I like the idea of the sparkles, where she is tempted by the "shine" she sees but not what she truly feels. Because everytime she confesses the sparkle vanishes, the truth that has been disguised becomes revealed; she was never in love.
However when she sees her best friend, "sparkling" she is confused on what to do, afraid it's just as usual. Fighting so hard, not wanting to know the truth. Fighting her true emotions, that she never knew of.
Anyway, the make-up part is unique BUT it looked horrible, that it made me give the art a "7", c'mon, the make up looks hideous. (sorry ^^")
There is a major "Cheese" factor here, that makes this hard not to roll your eyes at. It's adorable but you can't spend this amount of pages on an "eraser" . It is a one-shot of only 54 pages, so shouldn't be expecting an actual plot. Just some.."awws" and that sickly-happy-feeling that comes from predictable stuff that doesn't satisfy you but just makes you smile a little.
This was the weirdest yet bravest in terms of plot. It addresses a situation that I believe is more openly discussed nowadays. I found myself happy because this was considered relatively original compared to the previous two.
However, I am really confused [spoiler!!!] is she a boy, or is she a girl with a disease...What is gender lesion?
Anyway, I liked how he didn't run. He could have just freaked out and never come back, but he did. I also like how it isn't really clear how it ended. It doesn't make this seem unrealistic as in "I don't care, let's get married, even if I am straight and you are like that."
He just met her a few times, for crying out loud.
Overall, it was an enjoyable read. Would I read it again,honestly speaking, I don't know. read more
