Smells Like Green Spirit...the first time I read the title of this manga it seemed to me that it sounded like the song of Nirvana. I'm crazy, right?
So, finally the last year, I decided to finish reading this manga of which I only read the first page when I picked it up time ago.
I'd really suggest you to read it if you haven't still.
Well, in my opinion it's a well written manga and definitely not the typical yaoi. Even in the art style.
Some of the expressions of the characters with that unique drawing style convey a psychological aspect (sometimes I thought it looked like a horror story) but on the other hand it also convey a funny tone along with the dialogues..
The characters are interesting, relatable.
And regarding the story, it portrays very well some aspects of real life like acceptance, identity discovery and sexuality, struggle for not being yourself.
It portrays the realities that gay people face.
Really it's one of the most realistic BL manga I've read so far.
Although the ending gave me a feeling of happines-bitterness, I think in this way makes the story special and more realistic, genuine.
inho, this manga is a GEM, a MASTERPIECE.
Smells Like Green Spirit definitely deserves that has been in the best BL manga list of the Chil-Chil Awards.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!!

Mishima, a student at a school in the countryside, is bullied by his classmates. The reason is because he's seemingly gay.
