 I stumbled across this series randomly, but I was immediately super attracted to it because of the art style. I love this realistic type of style, it has a lot of details.

 In particular, I couldn't see how this kind of story could go well hand in hand with any other art style. It is an uncensored, blunt, story about the struggles of a female writer that is also a stay-at-home wife. 

 There is sex, although I wouldn't name it graphic. It is just the right amount, fit for the subjects it illustrates/completes with the visuals.

 The story presents all the human-adult themes, which are very relatable, some maybe not to everyone, as they get to some painful events: depression -> suicide, miscarrige, sex -> frustration, emotional suffering, the passionate affairs, confused and all over the place feelings etc. The only problem I had was that at some point I couldn't understand very clear the timeline of the events, as sometimes it switches back and forth between the present and the past events.

  Overall, it is a heartwrenching but beautifully illustrated manga. I recommend it and I am looking forward to reading it as it develops further.
