Ashita Dorobou

Kyouichi Miyasako is the star employee at his company. Why does he work so hard? He doesn’t know either. What he does know is that he sorely misses his girlfriend… the one he broke up with in college because he couldn’t put up with her hobbies any further. One day, an ominous black sphere mysteriously appears in the skies and shoots a laser beam in his direction. He doesn’t get hit, of course, but when the smoke clears, guess who he sees?

I tried my best to make sure this review doesn't spoil anything big... which was kind of hard. Ashita Dorobou  is a romance with supernatural / sci-fi elements.   Story The premise is very interesting: after a huge black UFO appears, a man meets his ex-girlfriend, who mysteriously hasn't changed at all in 9 years and who seemed to shoot lasers from her fingers. I won't spoil any more of the story, because it's really best to just sit back and enjoy the ride: it's full of twists, packed with action and romance, and overall just great. The manga deals with the theme of reconnecting with "the one who got away" in an interesting way, which gives a bittersweet touch to it all. The pacing is really good: it seems that the author planned the story out really well, and made sure not to drag it out (it's only 30 chapters + an epilogue). The ending is solid too, and nicely ties everything together. Characters There isn't a huge amount of characters, but each character has an interesting personality in it's own way. Because of certain elements in the storyline the character section gets a unique twist to it too. Hard to say much about spoiling things... In any case, I can say that the main characters were relatable and consistently interesting. Some side characters were less interesting, but most were still ok since there were no "one-dimensional" characters. Art The art was consistently good, and some panels were exquisite. Character designs looked nice, but some of the action scenes looked a bit less good. Well, it's nothing that will take away any enjoyment - if the art in this manga does influence your enjoyment, it's in a positive way (or you're too spoiled by other series...) Overall It's a good, relatively short manga. Certainly recommended for people who can enjoy a good romance manga
