Description
Pregnancy is not a disease, so insurance does not apply. Obstetric treatments do not treat injuries or illnesses, so an obstetrician is not normally needed during the birth of a child. Still, obstetricians are needed because anything can go wrong during a pregnancy. A mysterious pianist at night, obstetrician Kounotori Sakura faces the many challenges and drama that come with giving birth to another human being.

Note: Was nominated for the 39th Kodansha Manga Awards in 2015. Won the 40th Kodansha Manga Award for general manga in 2016.

Interesting, even if a little preachy

Interesting and moving, Kounodori immediately caught my eye. It takes a realistic look at pregnancy, right down to the ugly bits: abortion, still births, mothers who cannot take care of their babies; and it follows the pianist-obstetrician protagonist alongside several stories.

Personally, I skipped most of the chapters related to teen pregnancy and abortion, feeling it took a turn towards the preachy side: "abortion is murder", "no woman is happy about her abortion", and other themes the reader might not necessarily agree with.

This is a very interesting read, as it follows the mc, a obstetrician, through varying cases of pregnancy. Currently in volume 2 there doesn't appear to be any overall plot, but seeing as its ongoing with 7 volumes, I'm expecting something start up soon. I can't quite put my finger how I truly feel about the art. While I know some people would say it sucks, its just different than most mainstream mangas. But I feel that it visually communicates everything you need to know and so it that sense it's very good. Not everything is pleasing to the eye, but that's how life is and it also fits perfectly with the story. So even if you don't plan on reading the series, skim through a chapter and just look at the art. I'd very much like to know others feelings about it.
