The literature industry is suffering from the publishing recession. While the literary magazine 'Mokuren' was grieving over the present state of affairs, a composition intended for their Newcomer's Award was sent to their editing department. However, it completely ignored the application rules. It should have been torn to shreds, but the work caught the eye of a sole editor. As a result, the world began to change.

Here's my take after reading 24 chapters of the vellichor of Hibiki: Shousetsuka ni Naru Houhou (Hibiki: Becoming a Novelist) by Mitsuharu Yanamoto.

It's seldom that I would find a manga relating to something I like, well... not actually reading books, but something about literature/writing. Hibiki satisfy that urge for me to read such story but at the same time making it really interesting with quirky the cast of characters

The story revolves around the decline of literature industry due to publishing recession, and Hibiki 15 year old introverted bookworm who had submitted a literary work that could possibly save the falling industry.

The reason why I read up to chapter 33 is because I couldn't stand it anymore. And I will explain why below.

Story - 7

It wasn't bad. It kept me reading, and I was interested in what would happen next. What next big award would crop up? What will everyone do in response to that? Will Hibiki become even more famous? It definitely was one of the factors that made me read so far.

Art - 5

It was mediocre. It's not the most beautiful art I've seen, but it's sufficient enough. I appreciate its simplicity, though sometimes the simplicity read more

tl;dr: We all know what's true. (for the most part). But we deny it. We live our life doing and saying stupid things because it makes life easier. It makes life work. But is it worth it? What if we did what we knew was right? What if we lived with our heart on our sleeve? What if we didn't give a fuck and just kicked the shit out of people who pissed us off? That's what this manga is about. (kind of).

Story: The pacing is very good. The issues in the story are presented early and you can see the progression clearly. There's also read more

This manga is an interesting one. It’s one of the very few mangas that makes me think and re-think really hard about the values and the author’s inner works. This kind of manga usually makes people raise their standard high before even re-reading it. That people including me. Yes, it’s a manga that is so good that can make people go like this.

But as i raised my bar higher and being honestly critical like what the MC in this manga did, then i would say, using Hibiki’s words, this manga is totally half-lame. Exatcly 50 out 100. Im talking about the inner values though, read more
