Description
Delivery consists of a series of stories which paint a bleak and realistic picture of the women in the water trade, i.e, prostitution. Something for more mature readers with a dash of tragedy thrown in.

Story 1: Lisa
Risa, Karen and Mikan are call girls who get paid for satisfying their customers' carnal desires. They have their own reasons for doing this job. Will they be able to lead normal lives and find the simple happiness they seek someday?

Story 2: Mahiru
Since her parents' divorce, Mahiru has stopped believing in 'true love'. For her, 'love' is just a tool to earn money. She engages in compensated dating for income. Will her views about love change when she meets her classmate from elementary school after a long time?

Story 3: The End of Our Path
Miyu and Katsuki are a happy couple but they are soon going to be separated since Katsuki will be transferring to a university in the city after graduation. Miyu wants to remain together with Katsuki and so resolves to study hard to pass the entrance exam to an University in the city. But Katsuki seems to be drifting away from her...

Story 4: Yuiko
Yuiko eloped with Motoki and married him when they were not even twenty. Motoki is irresponsible and lazy. He spends all day playing video games and makes excuses for not getting a job while Yuiko juggles several part-time jobs to make ends meet. When Yuiko discovers that they are neck-deep in debt, she decides to take the high-paying job of a call girl. Will she face heavy consequences for her choice?

Story 5: Yuu
Yuu wants a life of luxury. She takes up the job of a sex-worker to earn enough allowances for buying designer dresses and branded accessories. There are times when she feels inferior and guilty but she brushes off these feelings by looking down on her parents' middle-class lifestyle. What happens when her parents find out the nature of her job?

Story 6: Before Daybreak
Touno and Saki are best friends. They maintain regular contact even after Saki transfers to another city. But all of a sudden, Touno starts receiving strange messages from Saki. Worried for her friend, Touno visits Saki and finds her caught up in a....

DEPRESSING! Not easy to stomach.

The title "delivery" refers to "delivery health" jobs, which is a form of prostitution that has a way around the laws, so all these stories are about paid sex.
They are all pretty mature. They handle topics such as prostitution, suicide, infidelity, abuse, disappointment, lies, drugs...
Especially the topic of women selling their own body... it's a common thing in Japan for teens to go out to dates with elder men for pocket money.
I didn't like the first story that much. The characters were incredibly dumb: the girl sells herself because she wants the easy money for brand clothing and her boyfriend even drives her to her customers. Ugh.
The 2nd story was already better, and story 3 is a heart-tearer.... omg. It was moving but...
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I feel sick from reading it. I can't help but hate Kazuki for cheating and the heroine for being way too soft on him and smiling at him again right away like that.

I loved the art - it was different than a lot of the shojo/josei stuff I recently read, which was refreshing, plus it was full of perspective and beautiful scenes. Wonderfully done.
The only thing here is, since the heroines are all teens, all the male love interests look incredibly young! I prefer my men to look a bit older.
Well, these stories don't leave you feeling good but instead give all sorts of other big emotions, disgust, depression, anger, sadness... it's really very moving and memorable.


The stories are altogether morbid but realistic enough.... and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to read about these topics and who can stomach the more depressing and disturbing side of sex for money.

...oh man now I need to go find something light and sweet and positive to read.

Some may say that those girls in the series are selfish, shallow,etc. But only shallow high school girls would do these kinds of things rights?
Anyway, this series is quite good in it's own way. Read it slowly and you will understand. It's not all that dark, just some sex scenes. Even I, a boy, enjoyed this series, so why can't you? The characters have their own problems, but in the end, all of them were solved (the first 2 chapters were darker).
By the way, chap 3 and 6 weren't about prostitution. I don't know how those 2 chapters are related anyhow, but they were OK

What's with these main girls (well not all of them 'kay)confused They're strange, they do this for a quite selfish reasons, although I am sorry for not empathising with them (I feel that I need to). Otehr than that, it is ok, so read of you've got time.

i thought this was going to be a slightly darker read about prostitution and that sort of underground business. instead, it follows a cliche path with very shallow emotions and unrealistic characters (mainly high school girls who prostitute because they wanted money or were bored or something). it was basically your run-of-the-mill shoujo with the theme of prostitution slapped lousily on top. the only plus may be that the art is good.

The the plots are ok and the art is pretty good, but each story is so short you don't have enough time to really empathize with the characters before moving on. I imagine doing a multi-volume series around one of the interesting couples could be good, but overall the stories were too short to have any real development.

I don't know about other people but i really think that this manga is written/ drawn very well. Ignoring the smut part, some of these stories really touched my heart. When i was reading the third story, i unconsciously found myself crying. I may be a little emotional but this is one manga you shouldn't miss.
