The main character is a girl named Koume Sato who lives in a sleepy seaside town. After getting used and dumped by the boy she likes, Koume decides to start a sexual relationship with Isobe, an introverted boy from her class. It’s supposed to be a no-strings-attached kind of deal but of course things get more complicated quickly.

Heartbreaking but so beautiful. A slice of life in a seaside town. Controversial for sexual themes (ie two kids and it's 'too realistic') and talk of suicide. I'd heard a lot about this one and glad I finally got to read it.

    This manga was incredible. It really resonated so deep inside me. I was left with a physical pain after finishing it. Its so beautiful and heartbreaking. Their relationship was about as close and intimate as two humans can be. The ending just hurts so much. Its so melancholy.

    In the end Koume was the real girl by the sea and Isobe got with the wrong girl and lost the best thing that happened to him. He should of stayed with Koume but nope that little bitch left Koume even after she confessed to him.

      I kind of feel like he did that for her. It looked like the police found out about what he did. But idk, kt was good for her too to be away from him. Their relationship was messed up.

    I read Inio Asano's works a long time ago after I fell in love with Oyasumi Punpun, but somehow I never read this one and now it's another favorite! I think those two are his best works so far
