Unlike most manga that gets translated in the West that's about awkward teenagers and superpowered fights, WAVE, LISTEN TO ME is about ordinary people and their hope and dreams, hangups and foibles. The heroine is a brash but goodhearted waitress with romantic woes and a job she's not completely satisfied with,a boss who would have fired her if she wasn't a popular waitress and a would-be cjef boyfriend she's not completely sold on. Her drunken rant about a horrible ex gets her a lot of unwanted attention that she's surprised she doesn't totally hate, and the producer who broadcast it offers to nurture her natural, freewheeling way of talking into potentially lucrative career on late-night talk radio.
The art here is more realistic than the usual big-eyed cartoon look of most manga because this is more for and about grownups. Instead of fights and bloodshed, this is about everyday people shouting at each other in funny ways, making bad calls with their lives and trying to work with the consequences. There are no easy answers here. Emotions are contradictory and messy. The characters are flawed and relatable. The situations feel true. Creator Hiroki Samura has a soft spot for messy, hardscrabble characters who are sometimes their own worst enemies but do the best they can. Give this book a chance. You might be pleasantly surprised.
