Asano Inio, seinen mangaka manages to create a beautiful manga about ordinary people. It has no unlikeable characters, and each chapter is touching and sincere. Near the beginning, the short chapters make it easy to pick up and put down when you want to, but once the manga gets to the middle you will find that you won't want to put it down until you've gotten through this amazing graphic novel. As the characters move through each stage of their lives, twists and turns leave new development for each of them and each gets their time to shine. Forget reality TV; read Solanin if you want some real reality, harsh but immensely enjoyable. As for the T+ rating, I'd recommend it to anyone thirteen or older who is mature enough to pass off one or two scenes.
