Interesting and Beautiful

Personally, I find this work amazing. The protagonist seems a bit bratty at first, but considering her age, situation, and past it fits and allows for the growth which est em pulls off beautifully. The artwork and pacing are both excellent, and there's nothing out of place or cliché in a negative sense. It's also wonderful to see a female protagonist with a lot of guts. Also, the issue that ultimately pushed her to suicide is, unfortunately, not terribly uncommon among same-sex couples (to the best of my knowledge, this is especially true of lesbian relationships), and seeing her climb out of the mire that this along with her horrible childhood threw her in is heartening. She is an extremely compelling protagonist. The male lead seems to be following suit (though it's hard to tell at the point the scanlation ceased) and provides and interesting comparison and foil to "Chica." I'm eager to see in what direction their interactions will take. The only issue (and a small one at that) is that there are a few confusing moments where est em is trying to compress time (I'm pretty sure, but not positive on that); thankfully such moments are rare, so the manga does not suffer much. I earnestly hope that est em finishes Golondrina and that it is completed in some form in English.

At first I was just planning on skimming through this but it got so good, I had to go back to the first chapter to reread it seriously. As the commenter below me said, her character slowly starts to develop from a heart broken girl to a confident woman. I wish they would continue scanlating this!

It starts out slow, with the main character being kind of weak and whiny that her girlfriend abandoned her. Then she slowly starts to mature into a young women with confidence and a reason to live and the series improves as a result. A must read for a rainy day
