Watashitachi no Shiawase na Jikan Manga Review
First of all, this manga is a short one and apparently it contains a bit of mature content. But all in all I think it’s okay for all ages. It’s my first drama manga and I totally enjoyed it. I read Watashitachi no Shiawase na Jikan because it’s short and somewhat like a change of pace since all I read are gory, horror, action manga’s. So I decided to try this romance and drama manga. Luckily, it didn’t fail to amaze me.
Plot of Watashitachi no Shiawase na Jikan
So what is this Watashitachi no Shiawase na Jikan about? Juri is a pianist who has attempted suicide three times already. Juri is taken to a prison where murderers are on death row. She meets Yuu who has already taken the lives of three innocent people. They form a bond through their scared hearts and together learn to live again. Gong Ji-Young wrote the novel the manga is adapted from.
I was totally overwhelmed by how great this short manga is. I enjoy reading every page of this manga, yes, every page of it. Every conversation is full of emotion. You’ll totally feel what the characters are feeling. The plot is so deep provoking and full of life lessons. It tried it’s best to be so close to reality and it was completely close. I didn’t find any hint of flaws. It’s one of the best drama manga out there. I like how it showed the result of poverty and the position in society is still significant until now. The influential people who tend to use their power against those who cant fight back. How injustice is still present. Those innocent people who are blamed for a crime they didn’t commit. HOW MANY SEEMED TO RULE THE WORLD. Those things were only a few of the issues tackled and I love how it doesn’t seem to be rushed. It was able to explain all those things clearly. But even so, the sadness is still unavoidable. The last scene got me. I was crying like a baby who lost their blanky. Yes i have to admit that I really cried. It’s just so sad that I cant think of anything but how stupid the society can really be.
Characters of Watashitachi no Shiawase na Jikan
Juri Mutuo is suicidal. Doesn’t seem to notice how lucky she is being rich. She feels excluded even in her own family. Her mother is a strict one, the kind of parent who wants to chose what you should be. She is suicidal and ungrateful because she also went through a very awful accident. She changed her point of view in life after falling in love with a prisoner.
Yuu is the poor prisoner that led an awful life. He has a brother and once even worked as a prostitute to feed his brother. He ended up joining a bad organization. The pay was high and gave him some kind of security but it only led to further danger. He commits a crime on accident due to pressure. He became a negative person after this incident. Through Juri he learns to love again.
The rich guy represented all those people who overuse their power. More so those who use their power to trample on the weak and poor.
The family of the mother and child that was killed represent society. They are the vengeful people who want justice but go about it eh wrong way. They are irrational people.
I rate this manga with a perfect score of 10. It’s so amazing. You’ll feel like it actually touched your heart. At the end of the story, you’ll try to seek for justice as well. You’ll feel like eradicating those who poison society. I highly recommend this manga to you guys. So yeah, that’s all. Thanks!
