I think not a lot of people out there know about this. Actually, I did too. I just discovered it since I'm marathoning Ogawa sensei's works after reading Kimi wa Pet.

Shinobu and Akane's love life is discussed in Candy Life. I was really curious about their love life, especially Shinobu's since she is so stiff and so serious in KwP.

I gave this a 10 as an overall score since I really really enjoyed it!! I love shinobu! hahaha

To start, this manga is kind of old. It was made in 1999 so there are already dated references (Y2K, the excitement over a Playstation or a Playstation 2) but it does make the story work in a way.

A 'will they or won't they?' for the older ladies, Candy Life is a sweet as a barrel of tabasco and honey. Don't get me wrong, as far as this genre goes it wasn't awful- but there was something left to be desired as the climax of the series hit, and the plot got rolling.

Story- as said above, the story seemed to be too slow at first and then BAM! climax and then BAM! story is over. Which is sad seeing as the story had so much potential. However, It was still enjoyable.

Art: I picked this one up just because the art is to read more

So I just finished this pint sized manga and wow the end felt sprung. SO much potential here and I enjoyed myself, so don't let the jerky pacing deter you. I won't include any spoilers in my review. I recommend you find an english scanslation online to enjoy as Candy Life is not available in print.

Candy Life is a one volume collection (6 chapters) of a twenty-something who wants a sweet life. She is not clear on what exactly that means. Nice things? Hot romance? Financial security? Personal freedom? The manga explores this inside a mere 6 chapters, which limits its fluidity and depth.

The beginning read more
