Nananan Kiriko - Blue
This is a really great comic. The drawing is very minimal but it gets everything over really well. Here's the first lines of the comic- “The sky that stretches out above the dark sea. The school uniforms and our desperate awkwardness. If those adornments of our youth had any color it would have been deep blue.”
A lot of the comic is about being awkward. The schoolgirl protagonist makes friends with a new girl, they become romantic, then break up awkwardly.
