Solanin by Asano Inio from Viz Media is a touching slice of life manga about finding a sense of direction after college. When released it was critically praised and it is good, but it didn’t speak to me. Maybe its cultural - the pressures and expectations for a young Japanese woman are very dissimilar than my experience. I much preferred Between Gears by Natalie Nourigat which covered similar ground.
