Common manga tends to be mediocre, with ‘Hotel Harbour View’ we have the supposed opposite side, a manga who tries to be serious, sophisticated, but that is as simple and plain as ‘One Piece’, but much more pretentious.
The characters have travelled all around the world, they remember experiences lived in L.A., Macao, Tokyo, París, Hong Kong, bla, bla, with this thing the authors think they are creating interesting characters inside a mature manga that is not. Let alone the situations like the man with cancer who hires a prostitute to kill him, situations that seem straight out of a cheap imitation of Wong Kar-Wai.
only thing that is nice is the drawing, especially the cities, although it’s not something that we haven’t already seen in mangas or animes with aesthetics like this one.
