About the Author
His breaktrough work SOLANIN captivated the globe earning him recognition in Japan and an Eisner Award nomination in North America. SOLANIN was later adapted into a cultish motion picture further cementing Asano's place amongst outsiders globally. Since 2002 Asano has penned 10 graphic novel series, dozens of short stories, and is now making in-roads as one of Japan's more popular graphic designers. In 2014 his most recent English language release Nishigahara Holograph was selected as one of the best graphic novels of the year by Publishers Weekly, Comics Alliance, Comics Resources, and Good OK Bad.

A girl on the shore isnt a manga with an overly complex storyline. In fact, it’s a story showcasing the feelings of a girl getting over a love. within this manga you’ll find yourself as an outsider looking into an experience, a distant memory with randomly placed moments throughout this moment in her life. a story so relatable, of pain, of the consequences of life, and learning to let go. a story of emotional trauma and unavailability. a story of surviving the pains of love. in the end we’ll be okay, a story of letting things be. a story of letting things go.
this isn’t going to be the best story you’ve ever read, but instead you’ll be reminded of something bittersweet, and even that is special.
Overall a sad but good read.

There are some very minor issues with the translation, but the art is great as always by Inio Asano, and it is worth the read.
