I’ve got a globally positive take on this newly released tankoubon.
The good sides: original enough story lines (that would have deserved more chapters to fully bloom, IMO), a shade of drama and mystery in the second half, and, most importantly, vivid, splendid, beautifully detailed drawings, with close to zero censorship, Maruta’s got major artistic skill, it’s massive pleasure for the eye
The bad sides: rant at me all you like, but I’m extremely uncomfortable with this manga because of the near-loli second half of the manga. It’s past that supposedly, but it’s almost there, and I felt it was a pity, a waste of opportunity to fully develop this second half’s potential for drama and poetry…
Kimi No Sukina Onnanoko No Katachi was commissioned by Job Truniht; the first half has been released by Flammz (proofreader), Job Truniht (proofreading), Kusojijii (translator), T.Starrk (proofreader) and Hurp Durp, from THMMY-Scans. The second half has been translated by N04h and edited by Herzer. Thank you very much, all of you
