A unique manga about 2 young girls venturing through a post apocalyptic city. There is no violence, no enemies, no real suffering, no crazy action. It's a modern tale destined to people wanting to get more than what is written, take their time and enjoy reading behind the scene.
Chi and Yuu are born after the cold apocalypse that suppressed almost all technologies and life from the earth. They have few knowledge about life but how to survive by themselves and some warm memories. But what's important is that they have one another and hope.
As they venture upper into the emptier city, they'll cross some few
people that will help them. Older, they remind the reader of themselves, as we see those encounter we understand what's written behind the lines. But are they really people ? Are they real, hallucinations, some kind of ghosts or guides ... you're free to find your own answer.
As they travel through the layers of the city, the background changes, it becomes more blended, more illuminated. Simple emotions fade away from the characters with the pages you turn, some deep questions will be asked in few words. Then you realize that they know. Those two girls understand as you do what's happening. You won't need much : some words, a look, a thicker line will be enough.
I cried, I laughed, I was amazed, I questioned myself, I wanted to help them, to hold their hands but I couldn't do nothing but turn the pages. As I write this, the manga isn't finished yet (chap 42). But for the first time, i feel a little guilty to want to read the next chapters, hoping it will end soon with some hope, just wanting them to be free from this. Because, from the first chapter, I know that I'm an hopeless observer of the tale describing the ending of humanity through the eyes of two young brave girls.
Thank you Sukumizu for creating this pearl.
