Selling copies is the only thing that matters.
So what if your first series just ended and you have no idea how to start the next one, your marriage is breaking up, your pure love of manga has been destroyed by the cruel reality of the industry and nothing seems to fill the sucking void inside you…
Find the secret combo for a new hit manga series and everything will be okay.

I love a good adult manga, and this was a good adult manga.
The art style is gorgeous and felt more unique compared to other manga art styles I have read previously, there are sexually explicit scenes and attempted rape so please be wary. The manga follows a successful manga artist as his beloved series comes to an end and the crisis he undergoes struggling to remain relevant in such a competitive field.

We see him start to come to terms with his career possibly ending, how this effects his romantic and professional relationships and the grief that comes with it. This story felt very real and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, would recommend to fans of hard hitting contemporary fiction and manga.

My rating: 4/5 stars
