It's got amazing art and scenes, every landscape pane is just so well made and the vibe is just so wonderful, and it's so chill for something that's technically post-apocalypse, you wouldn't even really consider it to be one too much

Started reading this new manga on a recommendation and its just.... so blessed.

The manga in question is "Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou" and it's just so wonderful, it's based around a "soft apocalypse" type future where there's not nearly as many people left but people are living the best they can in small communities that have formed around the super-risen sea and stuff and just
