Parallel is an average boy meets girl, Romantic Comedy and they somehow end up living together. Pretty simple but it works well with the story. This is a decent Rom/Com and even though it's incredibly similar to it's successor Pastel the story never feels dragged on. Although with this being such a short manga it is easy to finish this, leaving you with an empty feeling inside, from not being completely satisfied.

The artwork is really average, just like this manga and even with poorly drawn male characters at least the girls look good. The characters are the typical batch you'll find in these sort of read more

Parallel can be considered a typical story about a boy and a girl living together in one roof. There are not many animes/mangas that do this theme well. Even though they are not many producers that make this theme, I am please to say that the producers did a good job in Parallel

Story:
The story becomes very intriguing in the start of the manga, however as the manga develops on, it starts to throw random scenes into the manga. This however could be a bad thing for some readers, but in this case, it worked well. The character development, which I will go into detail later, read more

Parallel is a wonderful short manga that has served its purpose to me, and that was to act as a short pause in between longer running series. It was the right kind of length and not complicated at all to confuse or irritate. The only seriously noticeable flaw about this manga is that it has a last chapter that is completely out of place. The chapter itself is good, but it’s just out of place because the events portrayed in it take place before the story ends at chapter 19.
