Review: Perfect World by Rie Aruga

Perfect World is Rie Aruga’s touching drama about the romance that develops between an abled interior designer and her first love, whom she reencounters one day only to find he is wheelchair-bound.


26-year-old Tsugumi Kawana reunites with her first crush from high school, Itsuki Ayukawa, at a get-together between an architecture firm and the interior design company she works at. He sends her heart aflutter, until she realizes he’s now disabled, and in a wheelchair. At first she feels she couldn’t date a guy in a wheelchair, but then her feelings begin to change …

-- Netgalley description --






I got this manga as an e-arc from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Therefore, I would like to thank the publishers and Netgalley for giving me the opportunity to read this manga in advance.

I'm not a huge manga reader, I've only read 5 others so far (Death Note and Horimiya). I want to read more manga and when I saw this title on Netgalley, I didn't hesitate.

Perfect World is a cute romance story about a girl falling in love with her former high school crush, only now he's in a wheelchair. He has issues accepting that he'll never walk again and how that affects his life.  

I really enjoyed this manga, it was a fast and entertaining read and if I could I would immediately continue to read the sequel. My only problem with Perfect World is a problem I have with manga in general, sometimes I find it confusing to determine who is talking or what exactly is happening and I would love it if the story had more depth, but then I would be comparing the genre to actual novels, which I shouldn't do.

If you like manga or if you want to try it out for the first time, this is a nice choice that will leave you wanting for more! I gave this manga 4 stars and I hope to read more in the future! Very cute but at times thought-provoking read.
