Manga Review: Sasameki Koto

image

I am sure you will get this from the vibe of my review, but just so that there is no confusion, I absolutely love this manga. The following is an extremely biased review (even more so than usual) of Sasameki Koto.  Sasameki Koto is about the pain of love.  Those in this manga are all hurt by there love in some way.  Some of them love boys, some love girls, but none of them are free from prying eyes and hurtful stares. "My love is a lonely flower, it blooms and scatters without anyone noticing it."

The manga, Fullmetal Alchemist, won the 49th Shogakukan Manga Award for shounen and the Seiun Award in 2011 for best science fiction comic.  Additionally, it is a best seller in both Japan and America. It is a given that either you or someone you know wants it. But it is a whopping 27 volumes long; buying each volume will take a hefty chunk out of your wallet.

So what do you do? Buy the box set, of course. But don’t get too excited: the box set is far from perfect.
