Graphics Rating: 3/5
Plot Rating: 5/5
Opinion: Graphics are a pretty normal for a Manhwa, but as general standard I don’t like them that much. Very angular and awkward.
THIS STORY IS SO BEAUTIFUL IT BREAKS MY HEART. Seriously, I love everyone in the story. Sometimes it skips around a bit but the translations are really bad and confusing. But even with the confusing script the theme still comes through and you can really feel for the characters. I especially love this series because of the beautiful idea of imagery and music. This manga really appeals to all the senses because between script and image you are emerged into that world.
Overall, story is amazing. Read it. Read it now. Ignore the vanilla graphics. Seriously.
Final Rating: 4/5
Extra: From the author of Chocolat
I’m pretty sure there is a drama out there under the same name.
