Summary: Beautiful people are loved and revered. They have everything they desire right at their fingertips... Even if that beauty is a complete illusion. Before Kasane's mother died, she was given a special tube of lipstick from her mother. She was told that if times ever got really really hard, she should wear the lipstick and kiss whatever she really desires. But is this keepsake a blessing? Or a curse?
PPOV: Hello my dear Busta Gang, long time no see. Hope you missed me and don't worry I didn't run away from my responsibilities. To prove that, let me present you Kasane by Matsuura Daruma.
Firstly, the plot; I love the idea, the story of Kasane who wants to be a big actress but sadly wasn't gifted by life. I was sincerely expecting a basic yuri of shonen of some sort, but it came out to be so much more than just that. I'm not deceived about the story and I'm expecting more from the following chapters.
Next, we have the drawings; amazing, creepy, gringy, in shot captivating. It's well drawn and emerges a lot of emotions during your reading.
Finally, we have the characters and especially our main character Kasane, who has a touching personnality, she was hurt by life and by people, which makes character even more adorable and touching. Because you can easily put yourself at her place and just pardon whatever act she will have during the manga. It's at the same time, amazing and scary to acknowlegde how passionate her character can be close to you.
To conclude, I don't like this manga nor do I dislike it either. It's just an amazing manga that can be better if you let it give a taste of its story. I look forward in finishing it and I will defenitely come back to you for some feedback and I expect the same from you. Anyway, hope you enjoyed this short moment together and I'll see you soon for another discovery.
Peace and Love
