English is not my mother tongue so i'll probably make some mistakes.
As a fan of well written romance i recently found an author that has talent. If you're into this kind of stories you might understand what i mean and probably you're also tired of extreme dramatical nonsense and characters that get in love in an inhuman way. Aki Eda does not get too involved in drama and let characters get in love in a natural way, on their own.
The story is about a lonely guy that tells his only friend that he has the ability to see sparkles around girls that are in love. The main problem is that it seems that no one sparkles towards him.
The plot is simple, but that's not what it makes this a great story, it's their characters that devolop their emotions through this. This is a romance manga so it goes about their relationships so if you're looking for that this is pretty well done.
9/10 Simple and well written
There is no much to say about art because it's nothing out of this world but i have to point out that Eda has a very caracteristic way of drawing that is not too Seinen neither too Josei. It's like a mixture, and it helps very well to show the reader what the characters are feeling.
They're all lovable. They feel like human beings, even though they're not heavily detailed and their problems are quite simple. Characters in this manga are what makes it so interesting, so charming.
I have to add that they are pretty original, since the manga industry is full of archeotypical and cliché characters. There is almost nothing like that in this story.
As you may notice i love this manga, and it's one of the few that fits in my special list of ''Mangas i really like''. I've read a lot and i believe that only some of them have the charm that this one has.
If you're a fan of this kind of romantic mangas you MUST read it. Otherwise if you are not into this genre you might give it a shot anyways.
The manga is not finished yet. read more
