*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review and trigger warning for suicide and terminal illness.
Yuta’s mother is dying so he decides to record her last days to remember her by. After her death, he turns it into a movie and shows it in school; to disappointing results. He decides to jump from the roof of the hospital where his mother died only to meet strange girl, Eri, who drags him off on a mission to make a better movie.
Oof, this is not the manga to read if you are sad. I will say, I like how the panels will be fuzzy when Yuta is emotional or upset and how it plays with what is in the film and what is real life. This has Your Lie in April vibes if you are avoiding media about terminal illness. I will say it’s really well done and the ending does have a strange sense of hope. It’s surreal and maudlin. 4 out of 5.
