Review: WHISPER ME A LOVE SONG, VOL. 1 by Eku Takeshima


Rating: 5/5 stars

This manga is adorable and I'm surprised by how much I enjoyed it. 

Himari, a new first-year, sees a band performing during the opening ceremony and immediately becomes smitten with the singer, Yori, thinking she's the coolest person she's ever seen. The next day, Himari giddily tells Yori, "I fell in love with you at first sight!" and walks away before Yori can respond. 

Yori, a third-year, is faced with the dilemma of having to write a love song for the band, but she's never been in love before. So when Himari confesses her feelings to her, Yori thinks this is the perfect opportunity to find inspiration for her new song. She tells Himari, "I also fell in love at first sight," but what she didn't realize was that Himari's feelings were that of a devout fan and not intended to be romantic. 

Whisper Me a Love Song has my favorite manga art style that I think I've ever seen; I absolutely loved the drawings so much, and it makes me want to check out other works from Eku Takeshima. The characters are so cute. This manga is upbeat and funny and charming and I would totally recommend it.
