Ratings & Reviews
A "Different" Kind of Romance
If you are familiar with Asano's work, than you probably know what you're signing up for. Brilliant art, pragmatic storytelling, realistic drama, and psychologically intriguing characters from the mind of one of the most talented mangaka working today. A Girl on the Shore, while brief, leaves a lasting impact on readers with a very different and mature take on a slice of life romance series. At times cynical and even mean-spirited, this is not a manga for younger readers. That said, if you are looking for a short, dark, and unorthodox romance drama or are just a fan of Inio Asano's works than this is sure to be a worthy edition to your shelf.
Heavy and Hardhitting
by Laethas -
This manga is as dramatic as it is dark, and Inio Asano really nails it with this short, yet oh-so-good story. As grim as this story gets, and as hopeless as you feel things might be, it will keep pulling you through the pages until you realize you're at the end. An amazingly fantastic read, and one that is an absolute steal for the price. It's a complete package that really delivers on just about everything it was trying to say. Really well done, and one I consider a must-read.
For a Niche Audience
by Noah -
Inio Asano continues to right fantastic story with realistic relationships. A Girl on the Shore shows the struggles of finding a relationship and the effects of peer pressure. It's definitely for a niche audience but for those in the audience it's amazing.
This is my favorite manga ever, it has great art and a amazing story. It shows two amazing views of one relationship which both plays with your emotions and really forces you to deal with them. I personally like this book because its a intense teen romance that really pulls you in and allows you to experience practical drama and realism in a relationship.
A twisted relationship story
Asano Inio is a master of telling depressing stories about lonely people. And while a story that essentially is centered around "friends with benefits," may be off-putting to most, if you're able to look past that, it's a touching story that really gets down into the nitty-gritty of depression and isolation, even when at your most intimate.
