by Nao Emoto
LOVED AND LOST
After an accident on his scooter, Yusuke Serizawa awakes to find himself in a hospital bed. The cause of the accident—the sight of a familiar face that distracted him. However, it turns out that the person who distracted him was also the person who called the ambulance for him, and whoever it was won’t reveal their identity. All Yusuke knows is that this person is a woman from his past—someone that he loved and possibly wronged. Now Yusuke must search his memories of the women in his life to discover the identity of his guardian angel. Will Yusuke be able to find the true identity of this woman and rekindle the flame of a past love or will this woman forever remain a mystery, lost to old memories? Summary from Goodreads.
My thoughts so far…
Since I’ve started reading this manga I have enjoyed it a lot. Although the story is told in disjointed flashbacks through Yusuke’s life about all the mistakes he made, the girl he loves, the things and moments he regrets. I really liked it. So basically the manga it told in the perspective of the protagonist years after it actually happened. Which is really cool because you get to see how much the protagonist has grown just from those relationships and how he perceived them. The story is captivating it shows the ups and downs of life extremely well. Especially when it comes to the intensity and intricate complexity of relationships. That’s one thing among other things that this manga series so far has captured very well. It shows an honest view of how peer pressure and peer relationships can affect the way we treat other people. This manga had me defending the protagonist but then again I wasn’t sure if that was the right thing to do. It isn’t clear to me yet if I should yet I am, he’s not a bad guy he’s just made a lot of mistakes but haven’t we all. But since I’m only on volume three I’ll have to keep reading to get the full picture. I’m going to withhold any judgement until I finish the series. But until then I can always take notes.
