About Given Manga Volume 1

Given manga volume 1 features story and art by Natsuki Kizu.

Sometimes a song can save your life.

Ritsuka Uenoyama is bored with it all—with school, with his basketball club, and even with his one true passion: playing guitar. Until the day he finds his favorite hidden napping spot occupied by a strange boy cradling a broken-stringed guitar. At first, Uenoyama is nonplussed by Mafuyu Sato and his slightly odd behavior, but when, on a whim, he asks the other boy to sing, the power of Mafuyu’s voice pierces him to the core.

In perfect condition to have a perfect reading session

Have you watched the anime version? I did for sure, and i need more. I wanted a good price for it so I found it best to come back and buy it here. It came in perfect condition. As well as, I am a manga collector and not once did I have to notify them about any damage. Having Given in my collection make me happy because I even ordered the next volume ahead of time.

I originally saw the anime and absolutely loved it! And usually anime doesn't always give you everything the manga had and you miss something. I'm so glad I bought volume 1, it didn't disappoint and if you want a great music yaoi with interesting love stories and some sad backstories thrown in then this is the one. I also recommend listening to the anime's music, it's so good!

Even volume 1 made me cry lol

by -

Having watched the anime first, I decided it would be a good idea to read the source material. I was a bit apprehensive since a story about music in manga form seems a little silly to me, but this is honestly probably one of the best manga I've ever read. The art is beautiful and the story is tragic, yet heartwarming. If you were a fan of the anime, definitely read the manga!

A good read even for non-Yaoi fans

by -

I have never watched the anime, and I had never heard of 'given' but I decided to order it because it seemed interesting. Even for someone who isn't that into the Yaoi 'genre' this was a very good read and I am definitely getting more 'given'.
The characterization of the band members is pretty strong right off the bat and right away we get some great plot developments. A fantastic start to what I hope will continue to be a great series!

A must have for BL fans


If you enjoyed the anime, I highly recommend reading the manga.
The art is beautiful and it was nice to see the characters again.

My volume came in great condition. I really liked the amount of colors used for the cover. The art style is unique in my opinion especially the attention placed on facial expressions.
Although it's labelled as BL(boys love), I think that this story is great even for people who aren't fans of yaoi/boys love. At first it appears to be just a story about people in a band making music, but there's actually more to the story. The characters each have their own problems to deal with. Overall it was a great start to a popular series.

Great series for music lovers and love

by -

I bought this on a whim! I had my spoti*y on shuffle and favorite a song not knowing it was this series. So I bought the book during a sale and omg I love it. It arrived in great condition and honestly the story is a bind of emotions. There's jokes and cute scenes but also ones that are painful. Like my dudes I read the books and couldn't stop. Then I listened to the CD now knowing the feelings behind the song and started getting teary. I def recommend this. Maybe for older audience? I recall trying to read this series a few years back when it was new, and it didn't catch my attention, but then I saw the anime come out and still didn't watch. Again it was on a whim to give it another chance and I loved it.
