12 Days IX: Sad boys in snow

After some years, I sat down and took the time to read through Kii Kanna’s manga. The aesthetic was really my thing. The character designs were a bullseye for me, which when coupled with the fashion was something that baited me hard. It’s the kind of thing that resembles the feel of, say, Hyouka or High Speed. But what really got me after the aesthetic was the subject: the concerns and going-ons of the transient man in his late-20s. As I’ve gotten older, it’s gotten more difficult to find characters that you can really identify with because the typical character is a high schooler. It’s doubly hard to find such characters paired so perfectly with my aesthetic. So powerful is this combination that it’s already left significant impressions in my life.
