This one is my favorite josei manga. The story is a bit cliche and don’t expect the best story that has something very surprising in the end. Akemi Yoshimura really put all on the depth of the characters, build a beautiful storyline and poetic conversation. At the end of every volume there is an essay written by various novelist, editor, and artist. They give some responeses and perspective about the manga, and i can assure you that ‘For The Rose’ is not an ordinary manga.
Here are some scene that i really love
A Thousand of Angels
vol. 2 – chapter 8
vol.4 – chapter 24
Crooked Basket Swinging Among The Many Stars
vol.4 – chapter 25
