This manga presents us with one very short, but relatable story about the human connections and the personal strenght of one to accept and live on with his life, no matter how regretable he is for his past. Coming in terms with your own reality, and accepting the facts is one universal topic, that can be appreciated and can be touching to majority of people, since it's an existential origin.
The story of this manga is simple, and straightforward, but it serves it's part well. It does felt like alot more depth could be added, as well as to show
us the thoughts and lives on the other characters, and their daily interactions. And still the manga's premise is not a grand narative, but more of an emotional and internal struggle , so the tight and brisk pace is understandable.
Art-wise, this work is great, the style is non-typical, but quite fitting to the narative, with it's hazy mirages, gentle glows and dim shadows. Another nice detail are the various wiggling a and hopping myriad of happy tiny animals and the general roundness of the character art, it gives off feelings of peace and serenity.
The few characters you can see in this manga are interesting, but sadly quite basic and underdeveloped. Here and there, you can see snippets of complex characterization, but it can just leaves you guessing. They can be defined by a few traits, and rarely more.
With it's captivating art and creative, dream-like setting, this manga is a nice read if you do want to delve into something more gentle, and kind than your casual mangas. The topic of the story requires more specific mental state, and certain maturity in order to be fully appreciated, but I do think it's a story that is worth your time and attention, since it does make us think about the things that matter in our lives, and the connections we do share with other people.
