Perfect World 1



The moving, provocative manga about the struggles and triumphs in love of a woman and a man who uses a wheelchair comes to print! Fans of tumultuous manga romance -- like A Silent Voice and Your Lie in April -- don't miss this!

An office party reunites Tsugumi with her high school crush Itsuki. He's realized his dream of becoming an architect, but along the way, he experienced a spinal injury that put him in a wheelchair. Now Tsumugi's rekindled feelings will butt up against prejudices she never considered -- and Itsuki will have to decide if he's ready to let someone into his heart... Yet they may soon discover that, without each other, the world feels imperfect.

Praise for Perfect World 1

“Depicts with great delicacy and courage the difficulties some with disabilities experience getting involved in romantic relationships… Rie Aruga refuses to romanticize, pushing her heroine to face the reality of disability. She invites her readers to the same tasks of empathy, knowledge and recognition.” –Slate.fr “A thoughtful love story. The emotional core of both plot and characters indicates a thoughtfulness that bodes well for the series as a whole.” – Anime News Network
