A world where one country is split in half on the Berlin Wall, East Germany. Annabelle, who lives in a country dominated by socialism, harbors a secret love for a young used bookstore owner, Yukirou. And the secret that the state's intrigue involves. The times, the thoughts, the struggles are the walls that separate the two. An authentic historical play depicting people living in East Germany.
Socialists vs capitalists, German Democratic Republic, Stasi, body modifications and terrorism. I would not really call this manga ‘authentic,’ but it is mostly accurate, which is a good thing. Yes, sometimes it uses completely broken German, which is simply hilarious to read, but I cannot blame Japanese for having bad German. I cannot say much about the story yet, because it is rather a challenge to give an assessment after 9 chapters, but for now both the story and the characters are rather interesting to follow. My biggest problem with this manga, however, is that it is super easy to guess who the main villain is from the very beginning and so far, it is very predictable. Obviously, this might change in the future. Even though this manga is not flawless, I have never read anything like that in my life. There are not that many chapters yet, so it will not take you long to read it. Do give it a try, it is rather an amazing find.
