Happy Sugar Life
Volume 1


Satou Matsuzaka is known for being easy to approach. Amiable and pretty, she is also better known as "New Guy Every Three Days" Satou. However, this lifestyle comes to a complete halt when she encounters the true love of her life: eight-year-old Shio Koube. 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.

It is certainly one of the "WTF did I just read" moments when I finally finished this manga. I don't even know where to begin with.
Ok as it's manga we are usually tolerant when characters' psychology and behavior go wild, but they must do so in a believable way to be relatable, and that's where I think the artists failed. Main characters conveniently become stereotypical yandere, stalker or straight-out lolicon for reasons don't make sense at all. Characters talk and act in their most ridiculous way to add more and more drama, when everyone is doing so the work just goes all over the place. ...
