Second volume of manga “Pajama na Kanojo” has released, and it’s quite the total package of everything, minus story – the bishoujo heroine is stunningly illustrated, and the scenes certainly make a show of her.
One needn’t do more than glance at the heroine as seen on the front cover to immediately be entranced by her highly desirable assets – and for better or worse, laying eyes upon those exquisite valuables requires no more than opening the book to the first several pages, where one will then subsequently be welcomed by the beautiful jewels in a rare, unhindered display of the purification process.
And as if that’s not a treat in itself, one will notice upon turning a few more pages that this isn’t merely stumbling upon an instance of gold – rather, it’s a once in a lifetime event of coming across an entire cavern filled with treasure.
Yet once done appreciating the many gems in sight, the remainder is rather lacking of luster – not necessarily as the plot is poor, rather, the story is weakly spread across the manga series as a whole. A certain round of events unfold – and then they essentially take place yet again, and once more till infinity thereafter. The series of course tries for some variety – yet either way, the same basic formula remains, and it never was particularly potent to begin with.
The premise is as follows:
Keisuke and Makura are childhood friends who grew up together almost like brother and sister. One day, due to a misunderstanding they had, Makura left the house angry until Keisuke’s Mom is worried about Makura not coming home yet, thus Keisuke is told to go look for her. Reluctantly, Keisuke went out to find Makura, He ended up at a place they used to go often, the sunflower field. Luckily, Makura was there. Keisuke joined her sitting on the bench and they began to reminiscence.
When Keisuke decided that they should head back home, her mother phoned him and said that Makura collapsed and didn’t wake up. She also told him to head to the hospital immediately. At that same moment, he looked at Makura, who was not standing but floating in the air…
And while that sounds fine, it becomes less interesting when every incident is merely the same process of misunderstanding, bishoujo makes a massive mess, and solution is found – only for everything to repeat over again. Nonetheless, the manga may still be quite worth examination for those scholars captivated by the glorious display of the many precious minerals held abundantly within.
