…As a romance it lacked the sappiness of a lot of other romances while keeping the emotions a romance should have. It felt like an actual relationship not like someone’s fantasy. The manga was drawn in a style I find more in action mangas than romance mangas. This intrigued me, so I searched for other mangas drawn and written by this Akizuki Sorata, who ever he may be. And what do I find? I find that this mangaka which I have never heard of was the mangaka of one of my favorite romance mangas, Akagami no Shirayukihime! After reading his (or her)* other mangas, Otogibanashi no Fude, Bokura o Tsunaide, (I previously read Seishun Kouryakuhon) I realized something. What this mangaka excels in is not romance, but conveying the emotions behind a romance. None of the mangas I mentioned are your regular run of the mill romances. Otogibanashi no Fude has just as much action and fantasy elements as romance while Bokura o Tsunaide is about a friend’s feelings for his two friends; romances plays a minor role in the story. I have mentioned this many times before and I will many more times in the future, I read manga for the emotions conveyed by the mangaka and felt by the readers. I felt that even the three oneshots that Sorata made were very well done and had a lot of emotions. That is why I recommend Akizuki Sorata, because all his (or her)* works are very well done are filled with emotions.
*I don’t know if Sorata is a man or a women, I am not good with Japanese names and there is no Wikipedia article on Sorata to help me.
