- Seryou Touji: Looking at your face, people think that you are a very stoic, beautiful person. In truth however, Yuzuru-san is very careless, and slapdash. Blurting out whatever comes to mind, and always doing things rashly without thinking.
- Shino Yuzuru: *thoughts* I've already been told the same thing many times by countless people. But then, I can't help it can I?
- Seryou Touji: Furthermore, Yuzuru-san is very straight-forward, and tends to move his mouth before he begins to think, and because you are always doing things rashly without thinking, you're also very forgetful.
- Shino Yuzuru: *thoughts* Because that's the way I am.
- Seryou Touji: Yuzuru-san's personality, I think is; very likeable.
- Shino Yuzuru: *smiles* Thank you. I'm glad.
- Seryou Touji: Uh.. Is that so?
- Shino Yuzuru: The girls would always walk away with a disappointed look. Every single time they realized what I was really like, I'd know it was over. And my friends can't take it either. Always saying that I'm a waste of a pretty face. This is the first time I've been told that I'm okay just the way I am. Thank you.
Manga Review: Seven Days by TACHIBANA Venio
I admit being a manga person. It’s something about the way the Japanese draw their comics which draws me in.
And the gorgeously drawn guys.
This particular manga revolves around two characters.
Shino Yuzuru; the guy of many girl’s dreams - visually, but has all the characteristics of your usual straight-forward sloppy guy. He struggles as girls perceive him differently, expecting him to be flawless. In contrast, Seryou Touji is perfect, dating any girl that confesses to him in hopes of finding someone to love - but dumps them after a week if he feels no connection. When Shino hears of this, Shino asks him out as a joke, but their relationship unexpectedly develops into something more.
It is so real. I love the way it explores the fact that people’s personalities are often misjudged by how they look, and how its your personality and NOT how you look that creates a relationship. And its so sweet to see how both parties struggle to terms with their feelings, and the artist portrays this perfectly. The best part of it is how it shows love across boundaries, without care for looks, gender or anything else.
Seven days were long enough to fall in love.
