Bitter Virgin

Manga completed at 4 volumes

Brief Summary: Girl with a tragic past transfers to the school. Boy classmate happens to overhear her confession at church and starts to feel compassion for her.

Well, find the title quite misleading. Thought it was smut, but realised it wasn't after reading some of the synopses on it and also going through it myself. In fact, it's rather innocent.

Dealing with rape and abortion, I also thought it would be quite sad or traumatic reading considering what happened to the female protagonist but it was rather ok (or perhaps it was cos I skimmed through those portions).

Find the premise rather interesting and different from the other shojos and as well implemented as could be I suppose.

My Rating:
Story: B
Art: B
Recommended? For something different from your usual boy meets girl at school. But could be a bit disturbing, even tho it is rather tastefully done.
