What a waste of time

There is no plot, only characters, and what's worst... the author doesn't knows how to write male characters, forcing events in the panels to try to merge them to say that everything is a current...

Truly a dissapointing read, specially with the changes of personality on the protagonist... which it's drawn in an almost very androgynous way, adding the melancoly of hers plus ALL THE CHATTY ENVIROMENT of the fodders around, dude, poor way to make her stand-out, even the dogs were more lively than her... the brother and the husband shared the same way to express sadness also. BUT! despite all this mourning, she had comedy quirks... pathetic.

Has a 2/10 from me, ONLY because the old detective did a good social critic. The only moment in my read that inspired me to feel that a good character appeared.

But then:

The trick here is that this image can only be seen on this version, if you have the tankobon, or illuminati's you would have missing this whole thing, and i tell it is so relieving.

that's it? THAT'S IT?
boo. it just so....realistic. veryone have secrets they hide, past they buried, facade they put up. but whatever painful thing happen life just go on. things dont get resolved beautifully and relationship become undone easily. this manga portray the bleakness of life that it make me depressed.

anyone that like open ended, slow, quite story should read this.

Awesome ending

It's pretty slow at the beginning and way boring. every character has sadness drawn on their face. though they said so much, yet they say so little; build up a scary serenity. however, when i think i'm too tired to follow this lack of wow and whoa, i can't!! the only reason is that, all those silence are there just to give out excitements when the end is drawing near. when the story near conclusion, surprising turn of event surfaced, and facts that remain hidden at the beginning starts to be revealed, and the pace quickened. This manga ending is not so dramatic, but it's good, way too good compared to initial expectation. This manga gives off enjoyment and great feeling, given that you read all chapters from the beginning toward the end.

Surprisingly inventive

Undercurrent is a piece that I really didn't expect to enjoy as much as I did. While it's no secret that I enjoy this type of piece very much, the initial premise struck me as weak and I was a bit cautious throughout the first chapter. That disappeared quickly. As with his later Coffee Time, Toyoda manages to cultivate a quirky yet compelling environment for his characters, one in which a small amount of mystery mixes with bizarre circumstances and the human interactions that make them so comical. Unlike his other work, however, the story is intact and from the opening to the ending builds pressure and dissipates slowly with just enough coherency to keep the pacing solid. Additionally, the art is reminiscent of [a]Endo Hiroki[/m]'s heavily-detailed style, which is always fascinating to look at (although I'm not certain it was the ideal choice here, it was still visually appealing).

Worth the read to fans of artsy slice of life type works. Don't bother otherwise, you probably won't be able to appreciate its light-handed storytelling as easily.

Relaxing, peaceful and fueled by a small mystery. Environment and background art is used well to create atmosphere. Very good ending that doesn't make you fidget in your seat and say I want more. Begining is boring but then again the manga I read every week consist of one piece and the like. I definitely would of hated to miss this one.

I'm in love with this series.

I am surprised to see that no one has reviewed this one yet. A lot of people are talking about this series but it doesn't seem to be well known.

This is a nice little slice of life type story, but don't let that fool you, it has a great underlying plot that doesn't let you down. The mangaka has a special ability to make you laugh in one frame and cry in the next all with out missing a beat.

If you are looking for a short and simple read this is the series for you. Even if you aren't sure about it, give it a read. It isn't that long of a series and I'm positive that you will enjoy it.
