About The Garden of Words Manga
The Garden of Words features story by Makoto Shinkai and art by Midori Motohashi.
Words are powerful. Insults and rumors can derail a career; a bit of encouragement can give someone the strength to pursue their dreams. When a high school boy skipping class to sketch shoe designs and a taciturn woman drinking a morning beer meet in a Tokyo park, they say little, but the woman bids farewell with an ancient tanka poem. Will the boy figure out the poem's meaning - and its corresponding response - before it's too late?

Sweet Love with Just a Hint of Sadness

I was pleasantly surprised by this manga. I'd heard a lot of good things about the movie but I was hesitant to watch it because it was so short. So that's why I decided to get the manga instead. Maybe one of these days, I'll get around to watching the movie but this was a bittersweet romance. I could relate to both of the main characters, however, by the end of the manga, I was left feeling a little disappointed. I wanted to see how their story would "end" you know? I can't really explain the ending without spoiling it for you guys. Basically, I would recommend the manga if you're bothered by how short the movie was. On the other hand, if you want to see stunning artwork, stick with the movie.
