He’s about to find out.
Graphics Rating: 3/5
Plot Rating: 4/5
Opinion: Graphics are ok. Very minimal and grown up. I still wouldn’t say Josei though..
This is hands down a slice of life manga. If you enjoy sweet mundane stories with random down to earth stirrings this is it. He seems to be such a normal guy and then you find out that he was raped… a lot… but he acts so indifferent about it. It’s just a repressed memory. But I think it really gives a reason as to how he treats other people. He seems so sweet though.
It’s captivating but frustrating at the same time because I genuinely don’t get him. He doesn’t make sense. But it makes for some great moments. I dunno… I really like it…
Final Rating: 4/5
