Initially interesting...

...but by volume two it was boring, using clichéd and unbelievable jealousies to create (weak) tension. I was disappointed with the weak and tired direction the story took after starting out fresh, unique, realistic and interesting.

Is this a josei or a shoujo? I can't tell from the lead.

I generally like the story. I am not disabled, nor do I intimately know many people in wheelchairs, but I think the author does a great job of pointing out the difficulties people in wheelchairs face on a daily basis.

My main complaint is the female lead--it's like she's a 15-year-old trapped in a 26-year-old's body. I'm hoping the story will develop so we learn why she's like this, because if we don't, it's really a disservice to the readers. I really expect a woman who's coming out of her mid-20s and running into her late-20s to have a level head. The misunderstandings between the couple are also the misunderstandings of teenagers. I give the lead male a pass because I'm certain that suddenly facing a disability makes you think differently than your normally would and also because he's in his 20s and in my experience (as a much older reader of manga), men really don't emotionally mature until their 30s.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a romantic at heart and I'll keep on reading just to see these two permanently get together (if they don't, I'm never reading anything by Aruga Rie-sensei again). But it feels like the author originally planned a shoujo but then was told by editors that they needed a josei so she tried to shove the same characters into an "adult" rubric. It's incredibly frustrating. Good story, but I hope it ends soon so I can be put out of my misery,

Seemingly realistic.

I am a student studying nursing, so I am glad that they include the problems that come with many types of spinal cord injuries such as pressure ulcers, incontincence, and phantom limb pain. It adds realism to the story and may even help readers better sympathize with those who are physically disabled in that way. Anyways, haven't finished it yet, but I like the leads for the most part.

a more down to earth josei

This is really good. Since it's josei, it's got that warm, pinkish, power of love kinda thing, but the disability part isn't watered down at all* and is presented rather realistically. Right from the get-go the male lead is very upfront about what daily life in a wheelchair is like, especially the parts healthy people don't really think about, or try not to (like defecating), and the reality of his situation hits us earlier than I expected. I thought a josei manga would only approach the medical complications derived from chronic immobility once the pairing's love was going strong and steady, as a way to bring drama to the narrative, so the display of bedsores before they started dating took me by surprise. Rather your average josei that deals with two people in love and the human drama that accompanies them, it turnas out that Perfect World is about the dificulties a couple has when one of them is in a wheelchair. The judgement from society, of course, but also the inner demons each of them has to struggle with personaly in order to be a better person and a better partner.

Yup, I like it.

*from what I can tell. I have absolutely zero experience with people on wheelchairs, both in reality and fiction
