From Psycho Pandas:

"I have something I don't want to loseó
So much so that these terrible feelings have grown."

A pianist who attempted suicide 3 times, Juri, is taken to help her aunt at a prison where murderers who killed indiscriminately are sentenced to death. There, she meets a man named Yuu who took the lives of 3 people. A mother's antagonism--a brother's death... Together they embrace the violent rebellion in their hearts caused by the large, deep scars they carry. However, before long, they both embrace an earnest hope in their hearts. "I want to live..."

An adaptation of a novel by South Korea's most popular female novelist, Gong Ji-Young.

I just wanted to say that this is one of those stories that you need to read, yes or yes. It is powerful, heartbreaking but so beautiful. Even if you don't like sad themes, I think that this manga needs to be read because the story of these two characters is told in such a way, that you will remember it forever. How they change and save each other is beautiful.

Quote: "I'm worried I'm going to want to keep living.

As expected, when the manga gets its plot from a real book, the story is bound to be breathless. Along with neat, modern art, I just couldn't get this manga out of my head. I was beautifully written, smooth plot and a convincing tragic back story. Wow.

Words cannot express how deeply humbled I am to have read such a work of art---it was beautiful and such a privilege to read.

My favorite part of the manga was when

Augustine wanted Juri to play the piano for him for his birthday and in return she requested, "and in return will you live another year for me?"
It was definitely a defining moment of the manga and one I'll probably never forget.

There's no other word that comes to mind but beautiful, maybe amazing also describes it. It's a wonderful story, realistic and very well developed, you can empathize with the characters. I'm still trying to compose myself after reading it, I was almost bawling. I'm so glad I read it, I recomend it, it will make you feel glad you are alive.

I hate to cry but for this story it was so worth it. I hate sad things and tend to avoid them like the plague so obviously i avoided this story for a long time. Too long. I dont know what posessed me to read this but i am very glad i did even though i am in tears as i write this. I hate sad/bittersweat endings more than anyone i know but i still recomend this story for everyone and anyone. If you knew me that would tell you just how amazing this is. All i am going to say is read it and have some tissues ready because you will need them.

Watashitachi no Shiawase na Jikan was the most meaningful, heart wrenching, and most tragic manga i have ever read. The author has such great talent that my eyes simply could not hold back the tears, I genuinely felt for each and every character. This story was absolutely amazing and everything flowed together smoothly.

It shows you the true meaning in life and there is just not enough words to explain this masterpiece.

This is my first manga by Sahara Mizu/Sumomo Yumeko and I have to say I'm glad I gave this one a chance. Although she only illustrated the story she completely sold it for me. The whole ambience and nature of the characters are captured beautifully by her- the author definitely chose the right person for this manga. I love how Juri and Yuu's relationship was portrayed through subtlety rather than the traditional route. The love is there, and it is sincere.

The feelings hidden inside my heart

It was painful... Not because of the artwork or anything the author did, but because the feelings that are conveyed are so strong and so similar to how I've felt since I was a child.
Simply put- Life is never good. We may have moments where we are happy but in reality the feelings of hopelessness and sorrow are always ever present. Both main characters try to kill themselves for equally valid reasons, but after meeting each other they find that even though living is harder, it is worth it. The bittersweetness at the end is like a sour candy. It burns and it stings at your wounds but you cant help but wanting more and more, never becoming satisfied.
I usually am not a fan of such sad stories, but this one... It made both my physical and mental scars twinge with pain. I was reminded of the slight chance of sunshine that can be give and taken away at anytime.I was reminded that I am alive.
To want to die is this painful emotion, and unless you've tried to kill yourself you wont know the true feeling. The story perfectly conveys the hope that can rise from those feelings and for that it is an amazing manga.
It is sad, bittersweet, but also hope. I suggest that if you feel like killing your self you should read it.

Isn't Easy

This isn't an easy read.

This story is something that all humans know: people are good and bad. But the way it is delivered is oh so bewitching. It's touching, poignant, (every other adjective) - simply one of the best one shots I've read. It made me cry so much, tears of joy and sadness.

I think everyone will in some way relate to the characters because we've all been lonely and sad at one point or another in our life.
