GEN Manga was made to give fans an exclusive look at real doujinshi, otherwise known as indie manga, that they had heard about, but until now, unable to get their hands on.
In its essence, doujinshi is manga traded among other manga artists. Manga for manga lovers!
Seemingly mundane events twist with an unusual presence of the unreal as the psyche of ordinary people is explored.
Depression, time, and thought are redefined.
Alive is a collection of melancholy love stories saturated with sadness.
Characters struggle to connect with one another but never quite succeed. They are essentially alone.
Enter a world that is dark and disturbing — suicide is constantly contemplated and feelings of guilt, inadequacy, and suppressed sexuality surface as identity itself becomes a terribly fragile thing.
In the manga alive the title was misleading. I thought it would be about
a girl but in reality it looked like many different stories with
a strange twist. I thought it was a piece of life manga
but I was wrong it was just strange. It was a strange and
confusing manga that I stopped reading it.
Mom's Voice:Now so that you understand my daughter loves beyond words Anime. So when these three books came along for us to be able to review she thought OMG!!! Well, not! So, sorry if you feel it is harsh but she is 13 and they tell it like it is. Thanks
