About The Garden of Words Manga

The Garden of Words manga 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

by -

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.

Garden of words, or how to thank people helped you to become a best person

Garden of words is a neat adaptation from the movie, and the topics are pretty similar.

The things that stand upon us about dreams and love.

Just my headline gives the idea. Enjoy it
