Synopsis

Akira Tachibana is a soft-spoken high school student who used to be a part of the track and field club but, due to an injury, she is no longer able to run as fast as she once could. Working part-time at a family restaurant as a recourse, she finds herself inexplicably falling love with her manager, a divorced 45-year-old man with a young son.

Despite the age gap, Akira wholeheartedly embraces his mannerisms and kind nature, which is seen as spinelessness by the other employees, and little by little, the two begin to understand each other. Although unable to explain why exactly she is attracted to him, Akira believes that a concrete reason is not needed to truly love someone. On a rainy day, she decides to finally tell her manager about how she feels... But just how will he react?

[Written by MAL Rewrite]

"Youth... At times it can be wild, at times vicious. And yet, all those emotions from that age become an irreplaceable treasure. Although you may not see that right now..." - Masami Kondou

An injury, the fear of writing again... What do these two things have in common? Yes, they prevent you from pursuing what you want to do, and leaves you stranded alone while everyone else is moving on, as if time itself has stopped.

Story: 9
Revolving around the conflicting themes of moving on to pursue what you love or staying still for love, this is a beautiful allegory of life and regret.

It had been a long time since I hadn't felt this way.
I was brought to the manga by the anime and I really have no regrets about it.

So first thing that shocked many people: there is an age gap. I think it'd be better seen as a forbidden love STORY than trying to imagine it in real life..

The art is wonderful, and the story has a good pace (though some people might find it too slow). The mangaka takes the time to deepen other characters too.
Things happen naturally and not too fast, it makes you crave for what's next and suddenly you realize it's over.

"The way I see it. If you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain" - Dolly Parton

Koi wa Ameagari is all about pushing yourself towards the finish-line of happiness no matter what hurdles stand in your way. Yes the premise of an adult-teen romance is uncomfortable, but it's actual portrayal of the controversial subject is handled with care and deep introspection. Not once does Koi wa Ameagari make light of the fact that it's main characters are 30 years apart. It wants you to understand that the two are facing a monumental hill in order to ever be together and have read more

Preliminary
I was not going to write a review for this manga, because I found it mediocre. However, after a blackmail incident I decided to write a review. For the most part, the story is about a young high school girl that is in love with her manager, who happens to be in his 40's. You cannot choose who you love, but the manager does not have many redeeming qualities, except for his kindness. Not sure what happened to his ex-wife, but it is inferred that she left him because he choose literature over love. Yet, he is not a successful read more
