When Koume and Keisuke's relationship begins to take shape, it is apparent that they are both searching for something. Maybe Keisuke wants something more than a kiss from the fair Koume. Maybe Koume is looking for someone better than Misaki, the local playboy. But what they find in each other over the course of a summer might be far greater than anything they were expecting. Their lives are going to change. And this will all transpire before high school exams!
"A Girl on the Shore" First of all: this is my first review ever. I'm writing this because, after reading this piece of art, I need to share my opinion about it. This manga is simply one of the best things I've ever read. Really. The entire opera is about a painful, full of sorrow, story of something like "love". This lovelike thing, during the story, grows; It begins dirty, bleak, afwul. You'll read, you'll see things unthinkable, things that will make you say: "Eew! Gross!". But, 'cause there's a but, you'll find so much woesome beauty. Beauty that simply transcends the mere meaning of the word itself, this beauty is something that simply grab your heart and squeezes it until you'll sense it. However, how can I describe you the sensation wich I'm talking about without mentioning the artwork? This manga is really well drawn. The art made by Inio Asano is simply full of lightness, almost fragile, and the art has to be light to be beautiful. Sequences are so poethic and full of pathos. They drive you to see, to discover, and feel deep the intimacy of the characters life or actions. Talking about the character is a thing that I prefer not to do. But I'm sure that you'll love them, hate them, cry, laugh, or whatever will be in your chords because they are so human for better or for worse. And this is a damn important thing. Anyway, if I could give you an advice: stop reading this and go to read "A girl on the Shore". It's a real masterpiece and it will leave you something inside. It may be like a punch in the belly, a caress, a sensation of disgust, or maybe you'll shed a bittersweet tear for this truly artistic experience.
I really thought this mangas art was literally out of this world and the way it portrayed teenage sex, made me feel pretty much uncomfortable if I'm being honest here. I wish the story expanded more by exploring the two main characters, that includes the side character's also. I know the boy is coping with the death of his brother and his folks aren't always at home. The girl in the other hand, she has a big family. Then we see the side characters trying to "out" their relationship and the boy was mostly bullied for it. That was basically it for the 20 chapters it seems.... Btw the song mentioned in this is a bop, so friggin good!
Alright... I mean, the artwork was amazing and the character design was cute but, I didn't really like the main characters, they were a bit boring and didn't seem really happy about having sex which I found a bit uncomfortable reading and seeing them not have much expression. my favourite character was Kashima for sure although he hurt Isobe badly, I found him cute and low-key just trying to get the girls to look at him as a grown up guy and not a little boy. I also love how much passion he had for Baseball, it was refreshing to see as I feel like the other characters didn't really have any motivation to study, go to school, or have a hobby. the actual story was a good plot, showing the ups and downs of being friends with benefits with someone, however I feel like it wouldn't been even better if the characters had more emotion. I felt bad for Isobe, about his brother it was upsetting and knowing that he is suffering too but it really helped with his character development. I got a bit confused at the end of the manga but other than that it was a pretty good short manga overall: pretty good
