Summary: A story that wonderfully depicts the emotions of an overweight woman with low self-esteem surrounded within the harsh environment of slim and good-looking women.

Graphics Rating: 4/5
Plot Rating: 4/5

Opinion: Graphics are awesome so similar to George Asakura and Ogawa, Yayoi. Large, sketchy. Every time I see this style I always think josei.

So this is a very serious story. It’s really sad, and as someone who is naturally thin I cannot imagine going through what she is. I can’t even imagine the constant need to stifle sadness with food. It seems suffocating. I guess this is a nice light on the problems of eating disorders. I cannot wait to see what happens when she loses the fat! This is going to be interesting…

Final Rating: 4/5

Extra: From the manga-ka of Happy Mania
