It’s the last post of 2017, I’d like to think the next year is going to be good, but that seems unlikely with all the stuff that’s gone down in the last year. At least we’ll have stories to let us get away from reality, right?   I’ve got another Quick Review for this Manga Monday. It’s Fuku wo Kiru Nara by Shimano Yae!

Plot Synopsis: Yuusuke, an average office worker, meets with his friend at a reunion — only to realise that the fashion world has left him behind. Now, with the help of his sister Tamaki, Yuusuke steps into the world of trend and charisma…

Plot: This is a surprisingly decent series, or it might just be my fever raddled brain telling me that. Take these past two weeks of content with a grain of salt. Either way I enjoyed reading this, although I’ll probably give it another whirl when I’m not so sick that I can’t remember which day of the week it is.

Characters: Yuusuke is a pretty average college grad who is now working the daily grind, or as they call them in Japan a Salaryman. Tamaki on the other hand seems to be a pretty awesome female lead which I think she is? I can’t tell, and I’m not going to spend the brain power on determining that distinction over at the moment. Sorry you’re going to be getting some ramblings from me while I write with my cold going on. Either way they are interesting characters, and I prefer Tamaki over Yuusuke, but hopefully he gets it together in later chapters.

Art: The art is very good, easily reaching Shueisha levels of work.

Overall: A great read, although if you want action and adventure you’re going to want to skip this series.

For those who like: Slice of Life, Comedy, Fashion, Great Plot, Awesome Lead Characters, Excellent Artwork.

Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above.
