    Worth the wait!

    The anticipation over this book nearly killed me. I waited for over a year, and just as I'd given up hope I accidentally stumbled upon a NEW projected release date and I got excited all over again, just like a little kid at Christmas. Now that I have it in my hands and have read it cover-to-cover 'a few times, actually' I can honestly say that it was worth the wait. Cynical Orange is a breath of fresh air in a manga/manhwa section cluttered with 'popular' titles that hit it big as anime during Saturday morning cartoons. The art is full of clean lines and pleasing little details, such as the beautiful attention paid to the characters' multitude of clothing. I also love the characters' facial expressions--particularly the emotions that come out in their eyes and the shape of their mouths. The story is shoujo romance with a twist. It's nice to see that, for once, the heroine isn't falling all over herself to be with the super-cute guy who keeps trying to insert himself into her life. Hye-Min is a classic beauty, but she has real-life flaws and troubles to overcome. She's not a damsel in distress or a spoiled princess. She doesn't always 'get the guy' 'at least, not the one she wants' and her problems don't magically fix themselves just because she wishes they would. I find her temper and her insecurities very appealing, along with her overall attitude towards people and towards life. The entire cast of characters is an interesting and unexpected mix. Jun Ji-Un uses their somewhat small, even unrelated interactions with one another to convey the various aspects of their personalities and the true extent of their relationships--however innocent or dysfunctional they happen to be. It's hard to make assumptions about any of them, because they are constantly revealing new sides of themselves... or going deeper into the sides that they've already shown. I'm always having 'Aha!' moments as I'm reading or rereading when I figure some new piece of the puzzle out. It's hard to pinpoint exactly HOW each of these people relate and feel about one another, or what their purpose is in the overall story. I'm drawn to unraveling these characters as much as I read and enjoy Ma-ha's 'often humorous' pursuit of Hye-Min, and the general romantic nature of the story itself. If you're looking for something new, or maybe a little bit outside of the mainstream, I highly recommend trying Cynical Orange.
