It's about a girl that liked drawing manga a lot, from a young age .At some point she gets to meet another girl at her age that didn't go to school ,because she was afraid , but also released her manga Jump SQ.

one can do the utmost effort to explain it to others without ever making them feel half the way one does. Unless, of course, you're a genius like Fujimoto. We know him for his weird scenes, crazy humour, great storytelling and his often depressing stories... so this feels, at least for me, new. Personal.Not that that’s a bad thing - I’m ok with both, so long as it’s balanced, which it is for the most part - but Fujimoto is a very hands-off storyteller, writing the bare minimum and relying heavily on the imagery to tell his stories for him. It’s laudable - I think that’s the way comics storytelling should be done to some degree - but in the case of the second half of the story, it’s unclear what’s going on or why. It took me a few re-reads to figure out what Fujimoto was doing but I got it, though whether you believe it happened or not is up to the reader. Yes, it’s one of those “impressionistic” endings where you have to figure out for yourself what happened - I don’t dislike those but I know some readers detest them so be warned. Armor-Piercing Question: The one-shot ends with Fujino admitting her disillusionment with drawing in general, but an unknown voice then asks her why she even bothers, then.

The story section will have some spoilers, so in case you want to avoid them, just skip the big paragraph.

Fujino and Kyomoto have another one where they are shown having fun creating their manga one-shots and going on trips with their newly earned money, eventually culminating in the fateful news of Fujino being serialized that would soon tear them apart due to differing life goals.And I thought to myself at this point halfway through the book “Holy Shit, what is Fujimoto going to do with this?” And what he does is some of the most impactful visual storytelling I’ve ever read. a b c 【第66回】担当作家 藤本タツキ先生Q&A![[66] Writer Tatsuki Fujimoto Q&A].

Then there's also the obvious KyoAni reference, which makes me wonder if he did this for himself or for them. Maybe for both, but we'll probably never know. That just makes this story all the more affecting. In the Style of: Analysis of the one-shot has drawn comparisons to the works of Inio Asano, a mangaka well-known for his own somber Coming of Age stories filled with tragedy. Unwitting Instigator of Doom: The classmate that said that Fujino's art was amateurish compared to Kyomoto's, inciting a series of events that leads Fujino to an unfulfilling life as a mangaka and Kyomoto indirectly to her death.

I was hoping to see more development of the characters as we rarely got to see them encountering any obstacles to further improve themselves, however there's Fujino was driven to improve her art out of jealousy for Kyomoto's own skills, only to discover to her internalized delight that Kyomoto was essentially her biggest fan just as she had decided to quit drawing. This pushes her to seriously pursue a career in manga. At first the plot showed similarities to that of Bakuman, as it had two friends working hard creating the best manga they could make, however throughout the story the narrative became quite ambiguous.Fujimoto really went out on this one (well it is a one-shot after all). I feel like I don't even need to explain. The shades fits so well with the aesthetic and I absolutely love it. 10/10 without a doubt. it is about regret and it is about dealing with these feelings of regret and coming to accept that the past can not be changed, no matter how hard one tries. Establishing Character Moment: Fujino is first seen humble-bragging about her skills as an artist, but also mentioning that she has no desire for an entire career in manga and prefers athletics. This sets up how Fujino ultimately has no passion for drawing beyond her pride and making Kyomoto happy. The second half of the book is a condensed retelling of the first. Exploring the earlier symbolism, this half focuses on Kyomoto. For the price of their childhood collaborations, Kyomoto’s life is saved by a Fujino who, having given up manga, focused on karate and uses those skills to prevent the massacre.
