Aquel cielo que se extendía sobre el denso mar, los uniformes del colegio, nuyestra exasperante torpeza infantil...
Creo que si todas aquellas cosas de entonces hubieran tenido un color, habría sido un azul muy profundo.

It felt so real that it hurt...
[Btw, I kept thinking about Kimi no Yubisaki while reading Blue.]

I've read Blue several times and it never ceases to amaze me. Although the content is quite similar to a great many other shoujo or yuri stories, it's actually written as josei and given a vividly stark deeply monotone art style. The characters and their emotions feel real, though they are drawn almost as silhouettes (ie. memories). I've never seen this particular style from any other writer and it's very awesome. Highly recommended.
I read this book without knowing anything about it first. As a Japanophile I loved the setting and the minimalistic illustration style. The love story is sweet and poetic. However, I couldn't connect with it. I suppose I am too far removed from the characters to understand/relate. I enjoyed this book and really want to read it again, especially a version thats not electronic. The title is perfect.
Cuando dices que lo mejor de un cómic o una película son sus imágenes o el diseño, es que algo no cuajó. "Blue" es una historia de amor perfectamente simple que lees en una hora. Sin embargo, no puedes dejar de recomendarla por la sencillez y la elegancia de los trazos de Nananan.

homo story alert! i'm only 15 pages into it, but so far it's beautifully written and illustrated in a sparse, black and white style that is occasionally difficult to decipher but for the most part is simply lovely. Later report--it was like this all the way through.

Una larga y contemplativa historieta de una chica y sus sentimientos. Muy tierno.
