Manga Monday: She, Her Camera, and Her Seasons, Vol. 1

Series: She, Her Camera, and Her Seasons, Vol. 1
Author/Artist: Tsukiko
Publisher: Kodansha
Released: August 16, 2022
Received: NetGalley


We all know how it is in high school, the struggle to find a group of friends you connect with. In her third year, Akari doesn’t really stand out in her school. She’s okay with that, mostly.

But then she bumps into Yuki Sendo, and her world changes. Yuki is standoffish and obsessed with her camera, but the more Akari gets to know her, the more she finds the hidden dept of Yuki. There’s just something about her…


On the surface, She, Her Camera, and Her Seasons, Vol. 1 is a really sweet series about two teenage girls finding each other and slowly coming to terms with their feelings for one another. As such, there are a lot of light and fluffy moments sprinkled throughout, along with a couple of heavier moments that border on fan service.

Overall, I would say that this is a pretty worthwhile read. It gets a bit annoying when Yuki keeps taking photos without permission – especially when Akari doesn’t call her out on it. There’s one scene in particular that I think should have resulted in a conversation about boundaries, but hey, this is fiction, right?

The secondary plots provided some surprisingly additional drama and depth. These subplots may help carry the story even further in the long run. Only time will tell!
