Haru to Bonkura – an underrated manga

I’ve never written a review before, but considering only 141 people currently have this on their list and even less have actually read it, I feel the need to leave my thoughts here for anyone that may stumble across this entry like I did.

I think I can safely say I’ve never read a better piece of literature in my life. I was absolutely captivated at the level of depth the author was able to put into a mere 4 disconnected chapters with unrelated characters. Every moment of each story was entertaining, well-written, and (most importantly) extremely interesting. It managed to be thought-provoking without feeling pretentious, and never spelled anything out for you; every message or theme was left up to the reader to find for themselves. Not only this, but each short story was super satisfying and left me wanting more (in a good way).

Considering I only found this manga through clicking on the Users button under the Community tag, picking a random user that happened to have this as their profile picture, and reverse-google-image-searching the picture until I was able to find this MAL entry, I think I can safely say this is criminally unpopular. I urge anyone that manages to find it to give it a shot

Spends a lot of free time writing, reading and playing all things Anime, Manga and Gaming. Can also sometimes be found, meeting new people, learning game dev and forex. Loves all genres with an interesting plot but as a soft spot for shounen, slice of life, comedy and horror.
