Hmm, I just finished reading it. The art work is stunning with some little oddities I did not like too much, but this is overrated being labeled as mature content. There is ONE'ish kiss and even that one is covered up by heads. The subject in Vol.1 also does not give a reason for that and it reminded me a lot of The Devil wears Prada but without Meryl in it. This entire volume just shows you a fast pasting mind of a 27 year old woman who is busy with her work and in her head. It is nothing but a conflict of her own and the little things she runs in to. I do not know if I would recommend it to a guy though and I am not even sure that too many women would love it very much!? Sorry, but I was not really happy about it. The Synopsis of the manga tells that Minami Fujii is dumped by her boyfriend of seven years and realizes that the world--including her fast-paced job in advertising--is a lot more wonderful and full of love than she ever realized. , but the last half of the sentence is obsolete in my opinion because there is nothing really wonderful happening. There is no BANG or something, just the hint that eventually there might be something in Vol. 2 but even that is not certain. Regarding the beginning of the story I found it really hard to follow what was going on. I knew it was about a 'freshly' dumped woman but I could not really tell by the plot until later on when she said something. I actually assumed that she wanted to dump him instead and then bam she was single. No idea how that happened but oh well. Anyway, there was some other oddities in the plot that I wont mention to not spoil the little entertainment there is left.
