Kakukaku Shikajika is an autobiography of the artist Akiko Hayashi, who also does Kuragehime.
This is a fantastic manga to read if you’re ever feeling confused as to what direction your art is going or if you’ve hit a road block and you don’t know what you’re doing with your life.
If you’ve spent your life dedicated to achieving your dream and then you find yourself at a loss of what to do once you’ve hit a high point, what happens? Or you suddenly lose faith in your ability to do anything??
This is a great manga. It’s lovely, personal, and funny. It’s nostalgic if you’ve felt the same way in the past and extremely relatable if you’re going through an art block/uneasy time in life.
