Sae-ism...ho boy, what a roller coaster.
Basically, what we have here is what I can only describe as a mix of various topical elements mashed into a 4 volume manga. That doesn't mean Sae-ism was a bad read, at least in my opinion. But once you do read it, you can sort of understand why I'm describing it the way I am.
The story. The best way I can really describe it is what I said in the beginning. It's a roller coaster, mainly with more turns than either ups or downs. I still found the story enjoyable and unique for the most part, but some parts
of it were rather jarring. Not only that, being that it's only a 4 volume manga, things tend to change rather quickly. The story can go one way, then go a completely different route the next chapter, then take yet another route the chapter after that. All in all, the story is confusing, but I still found it interesting.
Despite a few parts feeling off putting to me, the art style is pretty good, especially in other instances. The views they had were really nice, and the characters emotions matched rather well. Although, as I said, there were some moments where some parts didn't really feel right to me.
Predictable, yet enjoyable. I don't really know how else to describe the characters. You got your main girl, your anti-main girl, your guy who hates the anti-main girl for some reason, stuff happens, yadda yadda yadda. Yet there's still some form of uniqueness to them that I sort of enjoy about them.
Despite the constant twists and turns, and ups and downs, I still found myself enjoying this manga. I don't know what possessed me to keep reading, despite the craziness of it all. Probably the sheer curiosity of how much more crazy and insane the story would get. Still enjoyed it, nevertheless.
All in all, I'd give this a try. It's definitely not perfect or groundbreaking by any stretch, but it's still worthy of a look. Just don't expect to come out of it NOT completely bewildered and confused.
