Esoragoto Note 5 chapters by Natsumi Oouchi -completed
Ririko has a rare disease that caused her to be hospitalized for 10 years and to be expressionless. The only things that seems to keep her going are her friends in the hospital and a notebook of things to do when she gets better.
One word that comes to my mind is delicate. The art is lovely but the story itself seems to snap out at any moment. Like it's hanging on a balance. I find this half empty instead of half full. I think it will depend on the reader's perspective. My hubby finds the movie Life of Pi as a story of hope but I find it quite depressing. And mind you, I'm a very optimistic person. Anyway, it was also a coincidence that I got to read a Halloween-themed manga a few days after Halloween. This is also from the same mangaka of Himegimi no Aikon. Her art style is so different now compared to her earlier work.
