This requires an adaptation.

Similar to Summer Ghost, this manga deserves an anime adaptation especially a movie with similar style. There is honestly nothing quite beautiful as a short, well-developed, story oriented manga with little to no commotion. Anyone can enjoy this and I believe most of the people will who have a good taste for novels as this one is quite beautiful. Dealing with a sensitive subject like death, and also the meaningfulness of life is difficult, especially within less than twenty chapters or so but it has managed to do that and do that well.

This story tells us how we can make the best of the time we have been given on this earth and how we can find meaningfulness despite knowing that it will be short lived, and be happy and contented with that. Its very simple yet profound.There is romance and love that gives meaning but most importantly you yourself must love your being and acknowledge your significance; the story tells this beautifully.
I would love to see a movie adaptation <3

Three days of happines...

I will try to be brief. I've read the (light) novel with the manga next to it so as to have the manga provide me with some visualization. It was great for that.
The extra chapters (the two .5 chapters) don't exist at all in the novel.
The differences in between the manga and the novel are such that the novel has more details and some smaller parts of the narrative.
Things such as:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
- The name of Kusunoki's neighbour is mentioned in the manga (Shinbashi)
- The name of Miyugi's childhood friend is mentioned (Enishi)
- Kusunoki gave away his money to the people wallking in the street, whereas in the manga he threw it into the water below.
- When Kusunoki arrived to the old book store to seek advice from the old man, prior to asking him how to improve himself (I can't exactly remember the question), him and the old men spent some time simply conversing about nothing of great importance, haning out.

The manga offered me the visualizations which I sometimes couldn't envision myself, be it that of the scenery in the story or that of the characters' conduct and appearance.
It helped me immerse.

There are painful things in this story, things "everyone" would appreciate having had a different conclusion. It is what it is and it's what makes the story what it is.
Don't read the spoiler below unles you've read the story as I'll talk about what I think of with the previous sentence. Also, I will make a spoilerish comparison with Yui Narumi from Ao Haru Ride.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Everything about her turned out to be difficult to process and accept.
I feel like she was not treated fairly by the story, but that's what makes it realistic. She mildly reminds me of Narumi Yui from Ao Haru Ride in the way of how sad the story is for them, though Yui's story is not nearly as disturbing and difficult to accept.
Kusunoki not having pursued Himeno in any way after he got to know everything was sad for me, but understandable. The thing is.. Kusunoki was genuinely Himeno's whole world, or at least the last thing she'd cared about, the person she thought there was salvation in. For her it was him just like for him it was her. Her soul was torn in some way by what her future yielded to her and the reason why she's stuck in my mind is that I believe that she could have been fixed. Perhaps if there'd been no Miyagi he wouldn't have given up on her. Yes, even with the knowledge of what the future had been. Simply look at what turned out of his life as compared to what it would've been. That means that any change was possible.
How this story ends makes for good seeds of thoughts which will make me feel like I'm suffocating when they enter my mind as I'm trying to fall asleep. I will never have such perfection, and the two who've found it, only have 3 days before they are gone. But when I'll think of Himeno, there will be none of that suffocating feeling, I will feel anxiety, I will be afraid of what became of her life and what became of her in that life. She is how real life works unfortunately.
Poor Himeno, what a tragic character!!

I feel like the novel made this an overal better experience than had I just read the manga.

It's a great story and it ends with making me feel like I'm suffocating and making me feel like crying, with an ephemeral point, at least for me.

It's a great read and really leaves you thinking about the value of a person's life and time. I think the romance part is well written, despite some having problems with it.

Very entertaining and interesting to read, and I don't see how a "typical sloppy love story" is any less meaningful or enjoyable than a "thoughtful and reflective story", nor are they any less potent, unlike a certain somebody's opinion.

Wasted potential

Not as good as I expected, I won't trust Garnt's recommendations any more.

Here is the one good thing about the story:

- It starts out as a reflection on the main character's mistakes in life, as well as his illusions and false beliefs which may have led to his poor decisions in life. It does not shy away from revealing awful truths that make us feel bad, which fiction often tries to deny. For example, many stories promote false illusions about the "childhood friend" love interest but this story does not shy away from telling the harsh truths. This is the one good thing about the story.

Here are the problems with this manga/story (minor spoilers):

- After a good start, it degenerates into a typical soppy romance story that doesn't match the level of thoughtful seriousness and realism that the story sets up at the beginning.
- The focus on supernatural elements like the monitor being invisible were unnecessary and detracted from the main aspect of the story.
- Relationships felt forced and unrealistic. Specifically,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the love relationship between main character and the monitor detracted from the hard realism and seriousness that is, in my opinion, the main good thing about the story. Most of the second half of the manga was about their relationship, is ridiculous that a company would allow its employees to fall in love with their customers to begin with, especially a company with such advanced technology that allows to render employees magically invisible and extract people's lifespans. Also, there isn't really anything special about the main character, so the girl should have fallen for other guys already, so it's even less plausible that she falls so much in love with him and not anyone else.

- I also didn't like the relationship because
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the monitor lied to the main character for her own sake. That the main character continued to trust and like her after finding out that she lied to him boggles my mind and feels very unrealistic.

- Also, the fact that
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the monitor lied to the MC about major plot elements
removes a major aspect that could have taken this manga in a different direction. Forcing the main character to reckon with reality and his mistakes in life could have been the role that the monitor played but because
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the monitor lied about major things
that means that route was closed off for this manga.

All in all I'm very disappointed that what could have been a thoughtful and reflective story was turned into some typical soppy romance story. There was so much potential but it was all wasted.

One of the best short manga

I don't have much to say, outside from just giving this one a read. It is really short, however, it also feels very eventful. I feel like not a single chapter is wasted, and every panel has its own purpose. In only 16 chapters span in merely 3 volumes, it is probably a better romance manga than most "romance manga" I have read that spend more than 200 chapters just to piss me off. It is rare for a manga get me to read it all in one sitting these days.

Absolutely great short manga

Rating: 10.0  / 10.0
The art was good and the story was very good, but the way the author presented the main topic, a topic that has been overused but never presented in the right way. Absolutely astounding.

The author doesn’t beat around the bush, every chapter felt meaningful in my opinion. The characters developed at a reasonable pace given how little chapters there were.

Most of all, the main message the author tried to convey was presented in a great manner. Some authors that try to make a meaningful manga using the same topic typically fall short in my opinion as the emotions, characters or plot always seem forced into the direction of the message. But the author did a great job of simply guiding the story to present the main topic throughout.

Certainly worth the read, but maybe follow my tip below.

Rating: 9.9  / 10.0
I gave this a 9.9. It's well-written and combines a depressive story with a bitter-sweet ending.
It's close enough to a masterpiece to count as one, yet there is something that keeps me from giving it that 10/10, not that I could name it. Maybe it's a bit too long, a bit too drawn out, short as it is.
But if you wanted me to name a specific example of something that could have been done better, I would say that would be the extra chapter at the end. Instead of adding it on as an extra chapter, I would have liked to have it immersed in the story itself, as it kind of gets in the way of the feels of the end.
My suggestion to you: Read the 16 chapters, then take a short break.
Once you've had time to digest the story, but before you entirely lose the sensations of reading it, come back and read the 16.5 extra. It's a good chapter, but it's also slightly disruptive where it currently is.
