Kawana Tsugumi works for an interior design company. She goes to a drinking party at a client’s architectural office and happens to meet her first love, Ayukawa Itsuki. He’s more handsome than ever and it isn’t until he’s leaving that she realizes something has changed: Ayukawa is in a wheelchair.
Graphics Rating: 2/5
Plot Rating: 2/5
Opinion: I wanted to like this but after one volume I was just absolutely bored.
So the graphics are very average to the point of bad at times. I’m not sure if this is the artists first manga. There is nothing unique about the style and overall un impressive which is too bad because sometimes great graphics will support an average story.
The story is boring. I was really excited to read a story about characters with disabilities and was hoping it would be great representation. While it is incredibly lifelike and clinical it just seemed way too clinical. I felt like I was reading a health pamphlet at a clinic about spinal injuries. It had no soul.
So the main character is just a mary-sue that is as interesting as saltines. She thinks out loud in a vapid way and just isn’t interesting. The male lead who is in a wheel chair just seems to spout off random facts about being disabled like a robot.
This manga suffers greatly from no soul, no personality, no interesting people. Making it a general text book about someone in a wheelchair.
Final Rating: 2/5
Extra: If you are still interested in a series that features a disability there is a perfect score series about a boy who is deaf called Kingyo Sou
