Although the love they share is pure, it soon becomes endangered by a society that wants to tear them apart. Dropping her bright demeanor, Satou will stop at nothing in order to ensure that their happy life continues in peace.

Well it's finally over, Happy Sugar Life was quite a ride. A story of a love the world would never accept, and doing anything to protect that love.

The story was very well done, particularly the unique writing style for character's feelings and actions which leads to the absolute best part of the manga in my personal opinion (though it would still be nothing without the story). I'll get to that next.

The art is nothing short of spectacular, memorable, aesthetic, the greatest manga art I personally have ever seen. The character's emotions and feelings are put on display so perfectly that you can feel a read more

‘I love you. I hate you. I like you. I hate you. I love you. I think you are stupid. I think you are a loser. I think you are wonderful. I want to be with you. I do not want to be with you. I would never date you. I hate you. I love you…..I think the madness started the moment we met and you shook my hand.’

Each and every one of you should have their own interpretation of love, because of the feelings we associate with it. That is why the interpretation may be different. Although, we all are convinced that only our read more

If you read the manga, it is a weird experience. I finished reading 10 volumes in just two days. What does that mean? The story is engaging but it is super LIGHTWEIGHT reading for something that is "heavy": kidnapping, psychopathy, pedophilia, murder.

The drawing is like a shoujo manga drawing, lots of inner dialogues, lots of big panels, and all those make reading super fast. Each volumes are not dense with information, mostly just about how the characters are feeling and talking to themselves in their head, trying to make readers understand about what's going on with the characters.

The female MC is a badass, she read more

The reason I began reading into the Ane-loli manga line was because I had read Yuzomori-san and craved for more stories involving an older girl and a much younger one, as psychological manga is my favorite. Throughout reading Happy Sugar Life, I have encountered all of these things: murder, manipulation, cruelty, sociopaths, pedophilia???, obsession, abduction, domestic abuse, nudity, beautiful art, and almost a sort of sympathy for our main character Satou.

The reason I love this manga so much is because it is incredibly unique to it's kind. The story development and characters are not lazy in the slightest. You will find yourself rooting for read more
