'Sorako' is part of the GEN Manga series. This was made to give fans a look at indie manga which is pretty hard to come by. I've read a few of these and this one is my favorite so far.

Sorako's story starts with a missing dog, but there is more missing in Sorako's life. She's apathetic about her job, and directionless in her life. Her father is in the hospital, but she doesn't seem to want to spend much time with him. She wants to go overseas and study or get a job, but she makes no move towards it. Simple everyday life makes up this story, and I found it interesting.

The art is what really kept me moving along in this. I loved the art. The story was good, but I had trouble being sympathetic for characters that were so apathetic about where they were in life. There are a series of stories, and not much story arc, but I'm still glad I read it.

I received a review copy of this manga from Diamond Book Distributors, Gen Manga Entertainment and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this manga.
