BLUE (マーガレットコミックス)

BLUE (マーガレットコミックス) - 咲坂 伊緒 A rather unconventional subject matter for shoujo manga that rather poorly plays on the forbidden love trope, in this case, a girl in love with her cousin. (It should be noted that in Japan, I believe it is legal for first cousins to marry, but it is just not something that is commonly done.) Typical of shoujo manga, it focuses on the main character's internal monologue and emotions rather than how she might be viewed by society and the people around her. Not bad, but everything is resolved too neatly and easily.
