Avelys Rating: 8.5/10
Avelys Notes: The type of manga that resonates with you, this story had a very compelling story. I didn’t expect to be completely immersed but I was sucked into this main character’s life. She intrigued me as she wasn’t easy to understand. Having occasional thoughts of drowning and dying, I kept wondering what there was underneath her exterior. She comes across as a strong and independent woman but is more fragile than people thought. As the story goes on, the main character is asked what it means to understand someone. She is at a loss and this question begins to make her question herself and her relationship with her husband and others. I found the story and the dialogue between characters written extremely well and realistic. It complimented the atmosphere that was being portrayed. I really enjoyed it overall, especially the ending. I think it tied everything together pretty masterfully. Giving closure to certain story lines and characters while kind of leaving certain things open ended and up to your imagination. But none of it was lacking. I highly recommend this one if you’re interested in a more mature manga.
Shoutout @ Skyzblue for the recommendation.
