Graphics Rating: 5/5
Plot Rating: 5/5
Opinion: Gorgeous. Absolutely stunning. It’s a mature style but is just so jaw dropping. I love the boys and the main character is so adorable.
Okay so I got this on a whim for my birthday last year. Tokyopop released 1-5 before closing. Judging from the cover and the synopsis I was unimpressed but looking for new reads anyways.
I was hooked. From the very beginning I was hooked. The main character is this super woman trying to live her adult life. She is extremely passionate about her work and gets entangled in these tangible and sweet (sometimes heart breaking) love affairs.
It’s so… slice of life. I know it sounds boring and I can’t really hype it up anymore because it is very basic. But it’s so believable and nice without being overly dramatic.
If you can get your hands on this… just like Mars… KEEP IT! Also if anyone knows Japanese/Korean/Chinese I have scans that I have to confirm the language but I have all the scans. So I could clean and typset so we could have the rest of the series. Just saying.
Final Rating: 5/5
Extra: There is a drama out there if you look for it.
