Life begins at 40…whether you're ready for it or not

Reads R to L (Japanese Style), for T+ audiences. Throughout his heretofore unimpressive existence, Shizuo Oguro adopted several different—yet all equally mediocre—personas: phenomenally unintimidating street punk, materialistic yet talentless folk musician, nondescript office worker, and forty-something burger joint emplo

I actually think I am liking this even more as I get into it, and I liked it a lot from the first. But I have this fondness for Chester Brown/Jeffrey Brown kinda characters, and this middle aged guy is one. And it is actually sort of inspiring about art making, as funny as it is with respects to his struggles with.. almost everything. But there's an underlying hopefulness in this long shot move to give everything up to become a manga artist… And I am reading this alongside Bakuman, which is also ...more

In the first book, we saw Shizuo give up his job as a salaryman (office worker) to pursue his dream of becoming a manga artist, despite being in his 40s and manga being an incredibly competitive field. The second book is more of the same. Really - read the first book? Then you’ve basically read the second one too as nearly the same things happen. Shizuo submits manga and it gets rejected. He bums around playing games and watching cartoons when he’s not creating manga or working at his fast food ...more

41 years old is young or not. But not so old. Shizuo(main character) is trying to be mangaka, and people around him. Author makes good stories like this, however his origin is this book I think. His mangas always give me some power to live :

It’s part two, and we’re making progress. The first volume was very slow and lukewarm, seemingly going nowhere, even though I did think that the concept had potential. This still isn't a series with epic plots or complex structures, but the storytelling gets streamlined and moves away from being a tale of a loser into a tale of someone slowly rediscovering himself. The protagonist moves forward with his plans of being a successful manga artist and this brings the character credibility and depth, ...more

Shizuo Oguro is back, lying around his dad's house for all he's worth, at least while he's not at his job at the fast-food restaurant.

This volume actually seems a little more bleak than the first one, which seemed to treat Shizuo with a little more good humor than he's treated with here. Still, you can't help feeling some affection for poor old Shizuo, who's still in full mid-life crisis and is still having no luck whatsoever trying to make a living drawing manga. We also get a broader glimpse i

This book made me laugh uncontrollably and cry uncontrollably and just generally very emotionally unstable. The characters are well-developed and I enjoyed seeing more of their interactions and backstory. I can't wait to read the next volume.

I love this book. Very atypical manga that always has me guessing. Shizuo is almost like Zorba the Greek. He's beyond judging himself and invites without irony hatever criticism the reader and other characters might have to offer. Sweet. Simple. Powerful.
