Description
This is an autobiography that tells the story of Akiko Hayashi, the author as she was in her third year of high school at the beginning of the story. Through her friend Futami, Akiko starts going to an art class led by Kenzou Hidaka, an intimidating teacher who spends much of his time yelling at his students and keeping them focused on drawing with the use of a bamboo sword. Akiko is initially confused by the behavior of the teacher and her fellow students in the class, but she keeps going regardless, eventually becoming the manga author she is today.

Note: Winner of the 8th Manga Taishou in 2015.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
She was writing her life together with her Art teacher as debt of gratitude maybe? Or she was wallowing on regret on her selfish actions? Can be both. But the way she illustrate her art teacher seems to me, that old man didn't regret on his decisions and never put the burden on others. If Akiko is still agonizing about his death, she knows well how to pay him back and continue his legacy, but she's not heroic as his teacher,but who knows she'll start from scratch later in her life too.

There is a quote that goes something along the lines of this:

"Dead people receive more flowers than the living ones because the regret is stronger than gratitude."


I originally found this manga while waiting for Kuragehime (which is by the same mangaka) to update. This manga captures both the feeling of nostalgia and regret that comes with retrospection and in every panel there is the feeling that this manga is not only an autobiography of the mangaka, but a sorry letter addressed to her sensei who essentially shaped her career. Without giving any more spoilers (eek), this manga is a poignant read, with bits of laughter and nostalgia on every page.
