About After the Rain Manga Volume 1

After the Rain: Love Is Like After the Rain manga volume 1 contains volumes 1-2 in an omnibus format and features story and art by Jun Mayuzuki.

Akira Tachibana is a reserved high school student who was the star of the track and field team but had to quit when she got injured. Sidelined and depressed, Akira stops in at a family restaurant one rainy day, and after the manager—a 45-year-old man with a young son—serves her free coffee, she is smitten, and soon takes a part-time job at the restaurant.

Despite the age gap, Akira is drawn to his kind nature, and little by little, the two begin to understand each other. One day, she decides to finally tell her manager how she feels… but how will he react?

I Feel The Rain Even After.

by -

I remember watching the anime and how I enjoyed the story.
The first volume brought be back to that and I can’t wait for the next volume.

5 star rating out of 5

Quiet romance of the really good kind.


Been a long dry spell for me and manga. This series kicked it back into gear. Sweet story with much more character development than typical. And the art is amazing. The protagonist isn't a lengthy talker and her feet often convey the mood.

Beautiful art and story

by -

Reading after the rain is what got me into manga and I was immediately captured by the manga's unique style. It looks older despite being made in recent years. The story and characters are charming yet realistic, and the pacing for the story is superb.

A Sweet Start

by -

The premise of this series is questionable at best, but Mayuzuki handles it well so that it hits the sweet spot of not being creepy or revolting, and instead cute. Its easy to read between the lines and see where the plot has the potential to head later in the series, but that doesn't detract from the enjoyment at all. The characters are charming and the humor is actually funny. Definitely worth checking out if you're curious!

Cute Story and Fun Art

by -

This story is really cute, and it surprised me, because I generally don't love this sort of art style. As an athlete, it's interesting to watch injured Tachibana's relationship with the track team, and her obvious heartache of not being able to run anymore. Her following love for her manager comes off as inappropriate and probably misguided affection in her despair. It's interesting to watch as other's take advantage of her in order to get what they want, and how Kondo's relationship with her isn't the most inappropriate.
The manga itself is the size of 2 average volumes, so it's well worth the slightly higher pricing, and if you want a read that can be both deep the further you look, or fun and cute just for Tachibana, it's one I'd recommend.

4 star rating out of 5

Refreshingly well handled. Great read!

by -

After the Rain is a cute love story with a healthy amount of maturity to it. If you are someone who is not immediately turned off by slightly controversial subject matter and want to see if this series manages to handle it in a meaningful way, I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
