Manga Review | Futaribeya by Yukiko
**This post is NOT sponsored ✨
So, I was on the lookout for cute yuri (Girls Love), and I saw Futaribeya at my local B&N, which I was drawn to immediately. The cover is pink which is my favorite color, and it’s super pretty and girly with flowers and lace. I really love the art! I’m a sucker for aesthetics, plus the pastel pink and cute girl’s spoke to me.
The story starts with Sakurako Kawawa who has moved into the dorm. Her first time away from home, and the beginning of her high school experience. Then, she meets her roommate, Kasumi Yamabuki. Who is super pretty, but kind of an airhead. The two become quite the duo, as they navigate school and living away from their families together.
I honestly thought this was a duology, but after looking it up it seems there are currently six volumes out in Japanese, which will also be released in English later this year. I’m super hyped about it, because I’ve become super attached to our two main characters. I can kind of see myself in both girls, Sakurako who is smart and responsible, and also Kasumi who is hard working, but also a little bit clumsy.
I would totally go back in time and redo high school if my experience was like theirs! Honesty from what I’ve read so far, the series is super wholesome and kawaii. I’m always blown away from the aesthetics. Their hairstyles are always on point, their outfits are soooooooo cute!
They also make friends with their classmates and dorm-mates. The series is slice of life, so really not much drama ensues, which I appreciate. Slice of life is one of my favorite genres, because I kind of like seeing people’s normal everyday life. Like Horimiya, which you can read my review on here. 😄
The days of youth, sweet and exciting haha. Of course, I don’t want to give anything away, so I’ll leave you guys with this!
Reasons to check it out:
- Girls being supportive friends 💖
- Cute plot
- Really, it’s a feel good manga!
So, my only complaint would be the panelings, because I’m not used to reading straight panels. It’s a bit confusing sometimes, but I got used to it. Honestly the story and characters are soooo cute, so I can live with it~
Catch the series here:
