Manga review: Mata Ashita

Hello everyone! At the time that I posted this, it will be the last day before my midterms will start. Ahhh… I’m so stressed out, but anyway, here I am with my review for this week! It’s a shoujo manga (つ≧▽≦)つ.:*☆!!! Okay, even though I sound really hyped right now maybe, I’m really tired, but I decided to write this on Sunday at 10pm because I don’t want it to bother me next week. A-y-ways~, let’s talk more about the manga.Mata Ashita theme 1

The mangaka has made ‘Nagareboshi lens’ too. I know the manga, since I read a bit of that. I kind of forgot what it was about, because it’s been about a year or so, since I last read it? I do remember the title when I saw it passing by when searching shortly for the author. She also made ‘Honey Lemon Soda’,  a manga I read actively currently. I love it. I’m always waiting for the updates. You should go check it out, as it’s really a nice shoujo manga. Well, the other titles, I don’t know, so I’m not going farther into it. I didn’t know but this manga is from 2014-2015, so wow… It’s more recent than I thought it would be, to be honest. So yeah, that was the information I have, let’s head to the next phase.

 

Synopsis

Towa has always been shy around guys, despite being a total tomboy. This has crushed her chances of ever having a boyfriend, but a perhaps fateful encounter on the first day of high school might lead to love? But will it be with the surprisingly kind “angelic” delinquent, or the popular yet secretly “devilish” prince?!

Opinion

So, I really liked this shoujo manga. It felt a bit refreshing, a bit nostalgic and still likeable.

So the concept is at school, a love triangle and a tomboyish girl who’s kind of bad with guys. To be honest, I can’t really remember the shy part, but maybe that she’s kind of rambling on then? The love triangle is basically between two “cool guys” (lmao, this is manga guys) who basically fight a bit under the table for our heroine Towa. It’s not really that unpredictable who she chooses, but still a nice fight I guess? A bit silent to be honest in some ways. Well, schools in manga….lol, always going on with the same hierarchy. I can’t compare it with the schools I know in my neighbour haha.

Mata Ashita theme 2The story itself is nice. It doesn’t drag on for too long, because it’s just a short manga in general (only 12 chapters) and it doesn’t need a lot of background of the characters anyways. So, it’s a good stable story.

The characters are all likeable. Our main character has that aura of “everyone will like me with my bright directness” which isn’t a bad thing. Our male rivals are those “cool guys”(still laughing under the table because of this, jkjkjkjk). They’re you’re classics I guess. Nothing special about them.

The character growth is nice. Basically falling in love and the losing male rival accepts this loss for now, which is a very typical shoujo manga.

I like the art style. It gave a nice feeling that really fits the story itself.

And well, maybe it’s a bit short on the end, but I don’t have much to say more about what I’ve done now. So, I’ll give it a 7,5/10. It’s definitely a nice manga to read, it’s refreshing, yet predictable and well, your typical shoujo manga without a lot of drama, but a love triangle. I’m never that fond of love triangles to be honest, just because it makes things so…….. well, not in shoujo manga. So, I guess it’s nice, not the most original one, but still gives off a refreshing feeling with the heroine.

 

And this was it for this week. Until next week when I’m in the middle of my midterm……fml I’m not gonna survive this! Someone save me plz.
