My thoughts on Umibe no Onnanoko

Recently getting into manga, I started off with Punpun as my first serious manga. Naturally I decided to check out some of Asano's other works, this being the first one I read after Punpun. Comparing it to Punpun would be both justifiable and wrong. It obviously has that Asano Inio feel of self loathing and overall depressive themes, but it has a lot more real life application in my opinion. It does a great job portraying the frailty of human emotions and how deleterious a relationship can be at an early age. The emotionless sex mixed with the online life of the MC are a good combination to show you just how bland the world can be if you make it, and it has an inherently darker tone than Punpun. I'd give it an 8 compared to Punpun's 9 if not solely for the lack of content, it's a quick story with a deliberate ending and a solid read definitely.

As previously mentioned, it does not only have a potential but it actually is a japanese avant-garde literature in drawings; realistically presented scenes and lives of the modern people who have fallen in a deep abyss of depression and realization of the world in motion that surrounds them, especially the way the teenagers' minds work and see that world through their perception, prematurely stained with the dirt of the collective mistakes that humanity breeds even today. Premature loss of the innocence...

This story isn't for young readers that are perplexed by sexual activity. The story,however, is enthralling and gives out a well timed glimpse into each of their personalities. The manga is realistic when it comes to growing up and trying to find oneself. It is a must read if you want something different because this story looks like it is going to be an heart wrencher. The art is also very beautiful and can keep your attention.

If you are looking for something light-hearted, look elsewhere. Otherwise, prepare yourself for a real treat.
This is a serious, real-life, coming-of-age kind of story.
The drawings are great, very realistic and detailed. The characters are deftly fleshed out.They are teenagers but the story in which they are involved is utterly mature.

I'm truly impressed and looking forward to the next volume.

If you like realistic mature comics, then this is a decent read so far. It's only scanlated through the 1st volume so far but more should be coming soon. It ended at a severe cliffhanger.
