Soobie's deliriously happy
Das war erstaunlich, ich liebe "Rec", das die erste Geschichte dieser Anthologie. Mir gefallen nicht Geschichte ohne (view spoiler) aber diese war so gut!!

Akira ist ein junge und erfolgreich Schauspiler, der auf das Spielen plötzlich verzichten. Man fragt sich, warum er es tut aber es wird nur Spekulation angestellt. Während Akira in der Schule ist, kennt er Minami lernen. In der Schule glaubt man, dass sie eine Videoaufnahme einer sterbenden Katze gemacht hat. A...more

This is one of the first times I've been so moved after reading a very short manga. In one volume, Makino Aoi managed to overwhelm me with emotions. Her drawings are expressive, shocks and beautiful to watch.

The story is more serious and sad that the ones usually told in this type of structure. It talks about the end of a dream, working in the entertainment industry, image rights, the attractiveness of people for the sensational and sordid pictures/shows too. It is very well led by the artist.

Honestly, I thought this story was going to be pretty boring. I thought it was one of those stories where they would end up together but it wasn't like that. I wasn't expecting the illness and there was a lot of honest words and feelings in this manga. It was definitely worth reading!

this is the best manga I have ever read. I wish it was published in English so I could buy it. It might be short but it is amazing
this manga made me cry from its 2nd chapter until the end!!!!!! sooooo touching story!!!
This 4 chapter story is about an emotional closed off teenage girl and a retiring teen actor who befriends her. It's a very short but maudlin piece where the story moves quickly and include many of the typical teenage angst tropes in the high school drama shoujou. The beauty of this manga is that it doesn't belabor or drawn out the action and story anymore than it should. While it is a bit on the quick side, it pulls you along. I enjoyed the pacing and the story.

I really cry not often, but this story was so absolutly heartbreaking! I just read "the final loop" also by aoi makino and the most storys were just good, the 3 one I started to cry again. Besides I really enjoy her artwork. Definitly recommending it!
Salima Korri
It was an interesting concept but I thought that it could have been way better. If it was maybe a little bit longer, then the emotions could have been conveyed better as there would have been some sort of build up. But it would make a good short Anime film!
Oh god... I can't even...
