Happiness was what i would consider the pinnacle of good manga. It had a story that was short,sweet, and most of all pack with content. Each chapter asked as many questions as it answered and left me with a vague sense of wonder. To put it simply, it was an incredible experience.

Warning: very minor spoilers

Story 7/10 : I felt that the story was quite short featuring few real conflicts. However, it was great seeing the world develop as you slowly see the world become affected by the main character. You see the world shift due to their actions and how the world bites (heh) back. ...

Story doesn't really go anywhere and the character pale in comparison to Shuzo's other works.

It's their home and thus they find beauty and comfort in it, so it works in tandem with the story as well as looks good. The problem here for me, was ...
