Though his first impressions on Togawa are bad, he slowly finds the warmth and kindness in him. Is there a new romance blooming in the office?
The story is different from most of the romance manga I have read. It has depth and maturity in its plot. It lets the characters move and develop freely. The author has really concentrated on putting effort into creating the story and a lovely one at that.
The art is beautiful and elegant. It is neither fluffy nor bland. The simple art enhances the simplicity of the story as well. The emotions of the characters are expressed clearly. The beauty mark on Shima is cute and sweet. There are few panels per page so the reading part becomes easy.
The characters are realistic and it is easy to relate to them. Both the main characters have sad pasts and they defeat them in a graceful manner.
Doushitemo Furetakunai is one of the best stories I have ever read. I love it for its realistic and simple romance with very fine detailing. I would definitely recommend this to readers who enjoy beautiful storytelling.
