I am only on the third volume, but every story has personally meant something to me. All the stories are very very real and it brings a lot of perspective about the struggles of having a hard life for the youth whether it be, self-mutilation, abuse, prostitution, suicide, and so so much more than I could never fit into this review. If you are in a dark place, the content may be triggering, a lot of the stories do not have a happy ending, but as I mentioned, it brings a lot of realistic perspectives.
The art has more of a realistic aspect and is done in great detail.
All of the characters are based on real-life experiences of the author, so it isn't like they were created with fiction in mind. You can't really rate or judge the characters since they are based on real people that we will never know.
I think this manga series is very good for real stories. You have to remember that this series is a collection of events that happened to the author, so it isn't a progressing story. Every story is emotionally impactful and truly brings perspective to what happens with people, specifically children, and teens during very hard parts of their lives when they are struggling.
A story that could be reality of some of you or just a dark fantasy for the others however the kind of abusing, harassment and violence existe I our societies regardless the manga a fantasy work but based on some true stories as the author said , if you about to read this don't consider it as an entertaining thing you should be aware that some experiences here are rough to handle and if you going throughout any sort of stuff should ask for help , asking for help is a step for solution is called courage because it require strength it's not weakness, you are not week , there is a quote I like. " talking about problems gonna make much easier to fix " and that's what this masterpiece trying to tell you
I really liked the manga because it took a different path of other works on the market it shows that manga not just some type on entertainment it can be even an educating or cultural thing .
the att style here was super realistic some of friends that suggests em they said it's scary I can get that because reality can be scary of some of us but it's doesn't mean it's bad because it can be beautiful too .
I highly recommend this to everyone to every human being it worth your time and it will improve your vision to everything around you .
