The title 'Koiiji' takes itself on the play of the word 'kuiiji', which means glutton, and implying 'Love Appetite'. In the context of the story, it is more like 'A Glutton for Love', reflecting Mame's long, unrequited love. [taken from nachte's translation]

I was attracted to the art and the idea of reading a manga with older characters as opposed to the school-romance you always see. Mame is 30 years old helping her family run a bath house. What I least expected this to be was a manga full of stereotyped men, women, and a bad script that has no tact.

In early 2016 I was looking for new josei manga to read; I had just discovered & by Okazaki Mari and I was really interested in manga that explored more mature themes. I just sort of stumbled upon Koiiji which only had a few chapters back then and instantly fell in love with the art and the focus on character. It's a story about love and loss at its core but it has so much more going on. The characters are so layered and even though it's about love it explores all kinds of love not only the romantic kind. It's also painfully relatable - read more
