Plot Rating: 4/5
Opinion: I’m always a sucker for Slice of Life Josei and this one especially as I feel it’s deals with marriage.
The graphics are very nice and very unique to this manga-ka, I recognize her work right away. Unfortunately while unique it doesn’t blow me a way it still feels fairly “good”.
The topic for the series is pretty on point for any woman in her twenties/thirties. Do you get married? Do you keep your job after getting married or having kids? A lot of my friends are choosing to avoid marriage even with long time partners. I think the series does a really good job of going through this complex issue.
The series is realistic and a great slice of life josei series. If you enjoy workplace josei you will like this series.
Final Rating: 4/5
