Where is the world I loved before? : 大好きだったあの世界は今? 岩館真理子の世界⑥「五番街を歩こう」


 The last work of Iwadate Mariko in Margaret comics was “Gobangai wo Arukou”. This work is a trilogy and each story describes human relationships around a coffee shop which corners on Fifth Avenue, but each story has a different main character. The structure which had never been seen before in her works makes the work kind of a breakthrough one in a sense. Plus, this work is so full of affection for cats, characteristically, that I feel this work somewhat heartwarming. 



  I wrote in this blog before that you can find the characters of girls in her works changing from shy, daydreaming ones to rather egoistic, selfish ones. Both characters can be seen in “Gobangai wo Arukou”, but I feel most there is the awkwardness of the women. What is described here is the women who can’t tell someone important for them about what they had been like in the past, the affection of them, or what they feel in their heart.

 I want to see characters who is so awkward that you feel almost impatient but you also feel they are attractive all the more, in her new works.
