one of my fav manga series ever... started it ages ago and finally got to finish it... it deals with so many heavy stuff and yet it can also make you laugh??? the mystery was so good too, even though at some point it becomes clear. i fell in love with almost all of the characters. they're all a little (OR A LOT) flawed and fucked up but i just wanna hug them and give them all a happy ending.
the only thing i dislike is the very ending... it's so ominous... i don't really get it
but it's definitely

Die Geschichte an sich ist durchaus interessant, aber ich komme noch nicht recht herein. Werde wohl noch Band 2 lesen und dann entscheiden, was ich mache.

Review of volumes 1 - 4

You maybe wouldn't guess it, but Piece is as complex and intriguing as its title is plain and boring.

This is the story of a group of young adults who reunite at the funeral of a former classmate. A quiet and unremarkable girl, most of them barely remember. The plot starts moving when the girl's, Haruka's, mother asks our main character Mizuho about the ex-boyfriend of her daughter. Not only would nobody expect Haruka to have a boyfriend in the first place, but even worse,

Sebelum mengenal manga online, biasanya untuk membuat keputusan membeli atau tidak sebuah komik, aku akan pergi ke toko buku dan kemudian melihat-lihat komik yang ada.
Setelah mengenal manga online, aku hanya membeli komik yang aku suka setelah membaca komik tersebut di manga online. Aku merasa cara efektif karena sekarang aku jarang sekali kecewa setelah membeli komik.

There is so much going on and I've only read two volumes. All I can say is that this has the most riveting, suspenseful storytelling and plot. Ashihara seems to be a master at pulling out a wrenching mystery that both reveals character and plot and hides it all in one. It's strange, at first there's nothing much going on except that Mizuho is set on the path of discovering who Origuchi's (Origuchi is recently deceased) boyfriend was. And piece by piece (as the title shows) she puts together the ...more

„Pieces“ stammt aus der Feder von Hinako Ashihara. Sie präsentiert hier eine bewegende Geschichte, die mit viel Feingefühl einen Einblick in die Psyche ihrer Charaktere gibt.
So kitschig dies auch klingt, dennoch möchte man bereits vorm Lesen das Mädchen am Umschlag in den Arm nehmen, es vor der Welt beschützen. Es sieht einen direkt an, mit einem Blick voller Leid, Schmerz, aber auch ein wenig Hoffnung. Ein wunderschönes Artwork, das gerade durch seine Einfachheit und die wenigen Farben überzeug

When a 19-year-old woman dies of cancer, her mother asks a high school classmate to find out about the parts of life she never told her parents, like who the boyfriend was who got her pregnant. The classmate, Mizuho, takes on this task and spends considerable time and effort putting together the 'Pieces'.

It isn't all mystery solving. Mizuho is rather a cold fish who matures and grows emotionally through the story. The plot and mystery are complex, and keep you guessing until the end. So much for

Started as a soap-opera-ish mystery and then went REAL intense, like a literary novel if it were about high school girls instead of middle aged white men. Then went briefly back to soap-opera-ish again. The execution is competent, though sometimes the text layout makes reading a little confusion. I still don't know how I feel about the ending -- it is certainly realistic in the traces of lingering dissatisfaction. When you reflect on the story, it certainly seems like one of the better endings t ...more

4.5 🌟

After Koe no Katachi & The Town Where Only I Am Missing (Erased #1), I've been searching for the same slice of life+mystery manga and a lot of manga had failed me until this one.

The description really intrigued me. Tho the story started with a solemn note; a death, it's not depressing kind of reading. It's more mystery & nostalgic vibe. Through out the story, we get a lot of humor too(sometimes, at random places). So far, I'm liking what I see.

I love this book. so muchhhhh!!!!!! gua udah baca beberapa jenis komik dan entah kenapa komik ini bener-bener bikin gua jatuh cinta. Kalau beberapa komik biasanya punya jalan cerita yang lingkupnya satu aja, kalo ini semuaaaanya jadi satu. kehidupan, cinta, pertemanan dan keluarga. pas baca komik ini entah kenapa langsung DEG ke hati.

Ammetto che ciò che mi aveva spinto a mettere Piece nella lista di manga da acquistare fosse il fatto che i protagonisti fossero degli universitari: avevo voglia di leggere una storia i cui personaggi avessero qualche anno in più rispetto al solito.
Ma Piece si è rivelato davvero bellissimo, e non per questo motivo.
Una ragazza diciannovenne, Haruka Origuchi, muore, e tutti i suoi compagni di liceo si recano al suo funerale, anche se pochi si ricordano di lei, e quasi nessuno le ha mai rivolto la

I want to give it a 5 star rating but I gave it a 4 star. Why? Because I haven't finished reading it yet, I'm still waiting for the next volumes to arrive in Italy. (I'm reading it in Italian)I don't want to give off a 5 star that easy especially when I have not seen the end of the story yet. But Piece deserves a high star rating because it's a good manga. It's not your "ordinary shoujo" where girl meets boy, boy meets girl and there's the third person to ruin everything blah blah blah. It's a m ...more

Aaah~ (satisfied sigh) Bagus banget dah! Seneng banget bisa jodoh ketemu komik ini. Mudah2an bagus sampe tamat.

Padahal baru volume 1 tapi udah banyak banget aja gitu konfliknya. Sebenernya sih lebih ke konflik internal karakter2nya, dan itu tuh ngena banget men. Bikin gw ikut berkontemplasi juga.

Ini tentang Mizuho yang dimintain tolong ibunya Haruka untuk nyari tau pacar Haruka semasa SMA. Haruka sendiri baru meninggal dan dikenal sebagai 'bukan siapa-siapa' oleh teman-teman SMA-nya. Haruka peny

As I said I decided not to mention mangas I´ve read on goodreads, actually... But this one is also really good. It´s about a young woman (Mizuho), who doesn´t show her feelings often. That´s why her boyfriend dumbed her and even then she didn´t cry or so. The question: What is love? is a big theme in there.
When an old classmate and outsider(Haruka) dies, the dead girls mother tell her, that Haruka told her always that Mizuho was a very close friend. But when Harukas mom also tell, that her daug

I precedenti lavori di Hinako Ashihara mi erano piaciuti parecchio. E sono stata molto contenta quando è apparso Piece.

L'autrice ha un modo molto tenero di raccontare. La trama principale di questa serie s'incentra su Haruka Origuchi, una ragazza morta di cancro a 19 anni. Questa povera ragazza era stata maltrattata ed esclusa da tutti durante il liceo. Il giorno del suo funerale Mizuho scopre che la povera Haruka aveva raccontato alla madre che lei era la sua migliore amica. E proprio la madre

Ashihara Hinako adalah salah satu mangaka favorit saya, khususnya di genre ini, err lets say tragedi atau cerita dengan konflik yang dalam. sebelumnya pernah baca sand's chronicle juga suka.

plot, twist, developing character dan banyak line yang quoteable..juga gaya gambar Ashihara-sensei yang saya sukai. recommended lah. gak rugi aku beli set komik ini. *berdoa butter and bread terbit di indo*

5bintang saya persembahkan untuk kesepuluh buku píece.
