Product Description

Review

Heart-meltingly cute--and not in the brainless moe-moe way, but because the feelings expressed are so honest. --Anime News Network

'Kisses, Sighs...' covers much of the same ground as Morinaga's peerless 'Girl Friends', however it is a much more experimental effort, which is both a strength and a weakness. Essentially a collection of short stories (some very short), the unifying theme is that they all take place in the same school, a la 'Strawberry Panic'. The central pairing of Nana & Yuriko is very much a re-run of Mari & Akko from 'Girl Friends', but is noticeably darker and edgier, with at least a hint of the real issues facing a young lesbian couple. Elsewhere, the stories range from sweet to slightly unsettling to downright weird (a lovelorn ghost takes possession of a snotty basketball player). Not the masterwork that 'Girl Friends' is, but an indispensable companion-piece nonetheless.

I read this a while back before it was published in English. As a fan in the making, I really wanted to own some of Morinaga Milk's artwork in physical print.
Between 'Cherry blossom pink' and 'Girl Friends' I slightly preferred the former because of the more complete and definitively happy ending for the couple.

Very pleased with the quality of print and paper, the after-words by the author, and of course the beautiful artwork. I look forward to buying Secret Recipe once published.
Highly recommended.

I bought this book on a whim since the art looked nice and the reviews were positive. I was a little wary since I've never ventured into yuri territory before, and assumed it would be more about fanservice than romance. I couldn't have been more wrong. The romances are handled fairly realistically and are actually quite emotional. The artwork is absolutely gorgeous- the best I've seen in the Shoujo demographic- and the whole tone of the comic really draws you in.

The manga is actually several stories compiled together, although they all take place at the same school.
The main and most interesting story is about childhood friends Hitomi and Nana. They are both applying for places at high school and plan to go together at Sakurakai, but in the end Hitomi goes to a more prestigious school: Tohou. It's only after they are separated that Nana realizes her feelings for Hitomi and they both experience the troubles and drama of high school romance- a homosexual one at that.
I enjoyed this story the most because it was so passionate. This is not some ecchi or hentai manga aimed for men. It is immediately clear that the manga was made with a lot of love. (Although there is some mild nudity, but in my opinion it added to the romance and emotion and it is not distasteful.) It's very compelling and keeps you reading to the end.

However the side stories are sadly where Kisses, Sighs and Cherry Blossom Pink loses a star. They are only one chapter long so the characters just aren't as developed and the stories don't draw you in the same way. I often found myself wishing I could get on with the side stories so I could get back to Hitomi and Nana.

3.0 out of 5 stars Girl Friends Is Better 16 Jan. 2014
By Starlight Rose - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As we all know, Milk Morinaga is a talented yuri manga artist. All of her characters are real and the love is pure between girls. If you liked Girl Friends you'll probably like this collection, but in my opinion, it's not as good.

There's the main couple, Nana and HItomi. But as the story goes on, there are random one-shots of other characters that pop up. Those stories are sweet, but they are short, and feel somewhat incomplete. They also interrupt the flow of the main story. Sometimes it's hard to keep the characters and relationships apart.

The feelings are natural, but rushed in all of the stories, as they move quickly. You don't really get to know the characters like you do in Girl Friends. Overall, I wish the manga would've just been about one relationship. Nana and HItomi is the main one, but it reminds me too much of Mari and Akko - they even look alike and act similar to some degree. I enjoyed Abe and Tachibana's story the most, and would love to have seen that as a full, heartwarming manga itself instead of a one-shot.

What I like about this series is that it brings up some incidents of homophobia and other issues that lesbians face in real life. It tells of real love between girls, and isn't overflowing with fanservice. It's worth reading, it's cute, but it was too short overall to be considered a masterpiece.

5.0 out of 5 stars So freaking cute and sweet you'll go into sugar shock at times 17 Jun. 2013
By ChibiNeko - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When I say that this manga is so sweet that at times you'll go into sugar shock, I mean that as a compliment. One of the best strengths of Milk Morinaga's work is that she makes you care for these characters so much that when something nice or romantic happens, you'll squee with delight.

One of the main things that works so well for this volume is that the artwork is typical Milk Morinaga quality. The drawings are simply beautiful, making it very obvious as to why she's considered to be one of the top artists in the field of yuri manga. She puts just as much effort into each panel as she would for her splash pages, for the most part. There are some panels here and there where things aren't as high quality as others are, but by regular manga standards her panels are still of exceptionally high quality.

What made me really appreciate this volume is that while Morinaga essentially re-tells the same story she has in some of her other work, it still feels fresh. Part of this is because the cast revolves around several different girls in Sakuraki High and the school that Hitomi attends, allowing for things to shift to another character once things begin coming to a head or start to resolve.

Another thing that I liked was the attention to detail in this volume when it came to the translation. One of my quibbles with previous volumes of Morinaga's work was that there were some typos here and there. I wasn't able to find any here, which shows that Seven Seas is really trying hard to catch everything in their edits. I'll admit that I can't vouch for how directly accurate this is to the original Japanese (since I speak none), but this reads pretty naturally and I've never really seen anyone give any big criticisms of the translations as they did with say, the re-release of the Sailor Moon manga that Kodansha recently put out.

Overall, this is an absolute necessity for yuri fans and the volume is so enjoyable that I'd recommend that they purchase it sight unseen. You really can't beat it price-wise, when you consider that you're getting the entire series in one big, durable volume. I can only hope that they continue release more of Morinaga's work in the future. I'm pretty much guaranteed to buy it, in any case.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love and cuteness 19 Oct. 2013
By Dylan_74 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the first manga of Morinaga Sensei I read.
There's all the guidelines of her artistic way of describing love between girls, it's delicate yet funny and heartwarming, and it's a great prequel to Girlfriends, the masterpiece of Morinaga Sensei.
It's a must if you want to read a great and charming love story, something that go beyond the gender.
5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Manga 24 July 2015

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Milk Morinaga is a wonderful manga artist and story writer! I bought her other yuri manga series Girl Friends and it made me want to read what else she released. This is another sweet and loving yuri manga series. Love that it is in 1 volume because it's easy on my wallet. Lol.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for Me 26 Feb. 2015
By L.R. Ring - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
So full of hopeless saccharine I couldn't even finish it. On top of the sheer amount of sugar, sexual assault apparently is part of true love in some of these stories.

Meh, maybe I'm too harsh. But there's better stuff out there.
