About Perfect World Manga Volume 1

Perfect World manga volume 1 features story and art by Rie Aruga.

A company get-together reunites 26-year-old Tsugumi with her high school crush, Itsuki. In the years they’ve been apart, Itsuki has realized his dream of becoming an architect—but along the way, he’s also suffered a spinal cord injury that’s left him in a wheelchair. Seeing Itsuki again rekindles Tsugumi’s feelings for him. It also forces her to confront her own hidden prejudices. Itsuki’s disability seems like an intimidating obstacle at first, but soon, Tsugumi discovers that her world feels imperfect without him.

The wait was worth it.

Been waiting so long in hopes this series would get a print version, I was beginning to lose hope on that.
The wait was worth it.
This story is good and really pulled on my heartstrings.
Cant wait for the next volume.

Wonderful and Eye opening

by -

I absolutely adored this manga. The relationship between the two main characters is unique and genuine. Tsugumi is at first shocked when she finds out Itsuki's disability, but that doesn't deter her from falling for him. She wants to be more educated about his disability and know how to better support him. Trying to become more open minded. She sees him for who he is. The romance in this story is very heartwarming; it's hard not to root for the main couple to be together. I have a close friend who uses a walker to get around, but that doesn't stop them, just like Itsuki. For anyone looking for a unique take on romantic relationships, I highly suggest Perfect World.

Refreshing and shows life from a new perspective

by -

It is informative, idealistic, and a very well written manga. The art style is great which adds to the story and makes it that much better. It sheds light on people who are paraplegic and humanizes them by giving depth to them and their experiences. It never over informs or branches too far and stays relevant, so every character and interaction is a foundation for the next.

The romance is seen very easily, but it is not as quick to happen. Itsuki still has issues with being paraplegic and what that means if he is romantically involved with someone. While Tsugumi comes to understand more of what he goes through and must do to maintain his body, she sees past that to who he really is as she falls more in love with him.

Definitely recommend

by -

Who wouldn't love a man hard at work and so determine. This is a great story, in one way or another, it will move you. Making it realistic in which it contains relatable moment. It made me think of the situation that the main character is in and how I would've react. Which is very interesting. Overall, I definitely recommend this manga.

"Well, I mean... I poop my pants sometimes, you know"

by -

This was the line that immediately grabbed me and enabled this series to distinguish itself as the real deal and not just another medically inaccurate love story. As an RN who has worked in rehab for spinal cord and brain injuries, I can honestly say this story portrays the long haul struggle those who survive traumatic, live-changing injuries experience from meeting their basic needs to finding their new role in society. Furthermore, volume one really does a great job at laying the foundations for the female protagonist ensuring she's not some Mary Sue with a strange fetish. While the story is ongoing, I could still honestly recommend this series to colleagues, clients, and anyone out there who is on the fence about buying this.

Excellent read

by -

This is a great story, I'm looking forward to reading further volumes. As of the first volume I think anybody high school aged and older could really benefit and learn from this portrayal of wheelchair users.
As for the physical properties of this manga, it came with some smudging on the pages, I'm not sure from what, but not so bad to ruin my reading experience. Came in Rightstuf's awesome sturdy shipping as all Righstuf's stuff does.

Heartfelt and Real

by -

Only in manga do I like romance stories--maybe there are people who feel the same way. There's just something about it that gets right past my usual defenses and I'm not ashamed to admit it.

Even if you have never read a romance manga before, I highly recommend this to you. Why? Because it gives you a glimpse of how those with disabilities have to fight an uphill battle in society every single day. At work, at home, and in their personal relationships.

You may not love these characters immediately, I didn't. But with each volume as you begin to understand them better, I think you will. And you'll be grateful for the journey.
