why you should check out setsuna graffiti (and help get the rest of the manga translated please)
I’ve been waiting for so long, but nobody’s picking up to translate it and I miss this manga so much so I’m here to signal boost it because it needs the love.
This manga was made by the same artist who did No.6!! So the art is so beautiful i actually cried reading the first few chapters (that were translated. /sob/)
The main character, Kou, is a dorky high school boy who has a fear of fire because of a traumatic event that happened to him when he was little like god damn my poor son. Loves fireworks though, that’s what this manga is about.
There’s a white haired anime boy who’s super mysterious and teases the main and listens to music. His name is ginga. the main character is super interested in him (but he says it’s fireworks). where he works they make firework shows. (he’s like a master that’s how he stole kou’s heart.)
Listen Ginga hasn’t forgotten about Kou since they meet when they were kids and he was mad Kou didn’t remember him (adorably mad).
characters dealing with trauma and reacting in realistic ways amazing.
there is not one boring character. think someone is gonna be unimportant??? think again!!!
the dynamic between kou and ginga is very amazing and you’re probably gonna ship them like it or not.
fireworks! what’s not to love???
also if you don’t believe me look at this;
(also i don’t know why the title is setsuna graffiti don’t ask) please help get this translated its great and it would mean a lot.
this scene was left untranslated and i was highly upset. still am.
“I’m tryna fall in lust this summer
tryna make you see a future in us this summer.
tryna love you kind of rough this summer..
tryna promise forevers, knowing we’ll give up, this summer..
tryna help me grow while watching you show a real love that could never be permanent because what I give is not enough or.. what you keep within is too much for me to really fully understand that.. it’s not me.. it’s you.
but then you’ll fall in love - the real kind. you’ll find the real one.
you’ll find someone willing to love you the way you never truly allowed me to.
then you’ll say my love was too much, when all you wanted was fun.
all you wanted was someone who I never amounted to.
even though we promised it was a summer love.. and we’d fall apart as soon fall begun..”
