Impression: This is a compilation of a series of oneshots featuring different people dealing with problems they face in their lives and their views on the current society of the world and how things seem to be nearing the end. I like how the author contrasts his characters’ hopes with the despair of their reality and how he always uses it to express messages of hope, endurance and morality. Many of the moments in this manga are quite endearing and heartwarming that I think the author created these stories with the intention of telling people not to give up no matter what. It could also be interpreted in an entirely different way if you’re capable of thinking in such a way but I suggest keep the between-the-lines reading limited to the more pleasant message. I think of myself a highly pragmatic person who accepts all of the good with all of the bad but I can’t help but appreciate it when humans express their desire to keep going on.
