I wish I could find physical copies of her mangas in english... but I think it's impossible where I live. I love Yesterday wo Utatte and want to buy it legally...

Sing Yesterday For Me needs much more love than it gets.

While I rarely judge someone's skills based on a single work I feel inclined to do so after reading Momonchi, which I thought was a pretty commendable piece. I hope the rest of her body of work is just as special.

Love her works, i enjoyed Acony a lot, the story wasnt some grand scale battle just an interesting slice of life with a mix of characters in a rather interesting place.
