Manga-ka: Yamada Daisy
Genre: Shoujo, slice of life
Hijiki (a girl with an unusual name) has just entered a new school, and on the way there she encounters a mysterious boy alongside a beautiful lake. Hijiki has some secrets of her own, and will this boy be able to listen to her silent pleas for help…?
This manga is short and bittersweet, but ended well though. Being Tachibana Hijiki sure is hard. Thank goodness there’s someone to be her strength. It’s always good to have someone who will rescue you when you’re about to go down the drain.
I thought Hijiki-chan has some terminal disease though, that remained unexplained until the manga ended. Maybe it’s kind of psychosomatic, since she can’t express her grief towards bullying to her father.
If you’re against bullying of any sort, you must read this one. Let’s put bullying to an end.
