Summary: This story is about Orange. Orange finds no reason to live anymore. Not for her parents, for grades or a career, not for her shallow normal friends. Orange finds the world stained and fake. When she’s ready to go off a roof she notices a drunk man near here and begins to rethink what it means to live.

Graphics Rating: 6/5
Plot Rating: 3/5

Opinion: Holy cow this manhua is BEAUTIFUL. So you see the cover? Every single picture in the 1 volume is like that. Amazing? I think so. I could hang every box on my wall. Ahem. So onto the plot. Beautiful and depressing. It’s so sad but so real. It’s sad because it’s life with no sugar coating. It makes sense and it makes you think. People are dealing with issues everyday. It’s always nice to be indirectly depressed because it gives you a new outlook on life without threatening normal development. The one little drawback is there is a lot of guessing to be done. You have to read and read and read over and over again to really understand it. Not recommended for people just looking to kill time. Even though I’ve read it a bunch of times I still want to know more. It feels like a lot is missing. I don’t know if I need to read it again or the answers aren’t there. Definitely read this.

Final Rating: 4/5

Extra: This one volume book is released in North America by Tokyopop. I don’t know if there are releases on the internet but I refuse to support them even if there are. Please, borrow this from a friend or the library. Even go out and buy it yourself because the best way to read this is in your hands. Enjoy! :)
