Overview

GEN Manga is Indie Manga from the Tokyo Underground.
GEN Manga was made to give fans an exclusive look at real doujinshi, otherwise known as indie manga, that they had heard about, but until now, unable to get their hands on. In its essence, doujinshi is manga traded among other manga artists. Manga for manga lovers!

Sorako lives an ordinary life. And this is an ordinary story. She has friends and family, loves her dog, thinks about life, and occasionally looks for work (kinda). These are the adventures into a typical girl's life.

"A Beautiful Slice of Life Manga." -SFX

"Fujimura Takayuki's Sorako, a one-shot story in issue 4, looks like GEN's answer to Inio Asano's solanin, a slice-of-life story about a restless twentysomething girl and a lost dog. The round-headed style even looks a bit like Asano's work, but the characters are more likable. I'd love to see more from Takiyuki." -MTV GEEK

"The art of Sorako is fluid, quick, imprecise. Lines aren't perfectly straight nor details entirely accurate, but the rough drafting style gives the frames energy and character, enhancing the impression that the artist's goal is to tell Sorako's story, blemishes and all."
-AnimeNation

"The new entry this time around is a short story called Sorako, by Fujimura Takayuki. It's a nice slice-of-life story about a twentysomething having doubts about her life situation. The plot is minimal, and is mostly about her lost dog, but I think that makes it even a little better. There's city living commentary, jobless commentary, and a whole lot of ordinary, but it makes for a great read. I think one-shot stories like this suit the format of Gen, and I'm happy to see something like this in its pages." -Slightly Biased Manga
