tl;dr : An amazing episodic, atmospheric and short manga. It's meant for you to relax and enjoy yourself. I recommend Mushishi if you like this kind of manga.
Story : 9
- This manga has no coherent "plot" or continuous plot line , but instead a series of random short and different stories written on various chapters, in other words, it's an episodic manga. You can still enjoy yourself without worrying about not understanding the plot when you read a random chapter. While some people dislike this kind of format, I personally really like this. Each chapter is a new and exciting story, waiting to be told. As there's no plot, the story is very atmospheric and will make you experience a full roller-coaster of emotions every single chapter. I probably rant too much on this but the final does pay off and probably leave you in a bittersweet feel.
Art : 10
- The art is arguably one of the best thing about this series . It's very clean , and very gorgeous. It gives off a weird yet wonderful feeling how the characters appear Japanese while having many features that would make them Western , and the style blends neatly between being old-fashioned and modern. It's a feast to the eyes.
Characters : 10
- The series is short, so the characters do not get that much screentime. However, the author did a fine job of giving them character-developments , along with the giving us the essences of each character. You can clearly understand them, their actions, their emotions , their personalities in a very short time. This is a rare case of you just wanting to cheer and root for every characters (At least in my case, but i'm sure the majority of people will agree with me)
- It's the kind of series that you enjoy yourself with some relaxing slow jazz music, along with your favorite drink and some snacks. It's episodic, it's atmospheric and it's short , so if you are bored/lonely on a free evening, give yourself a treat and read this.
