I don't know. It's one of those things that you're really invested in when you're reading it, but after you're done you realize it didn't really leave anything to be remembered by. Slice of life at its best and at its worst at the same time.

Can't post a forum thread about this so, here's a review I wrote on the manga:
https://terrenceswiff.wordpress.com/2017/07/04/yuuyake-rocket-pencil/

While I liked it, there are a few things about it that I'm VERY critical of
Spoiler


I'm not explicit in the review though. I try to stay spoiler free. For the most part, good manga, I probably got harsh on it cause I was really digging it and thus the problems hurt more.

Wew so it actually ended for real this time.

For everyone crying about the big breakup, I thought it was great and well played. In your early/mid 20s, sometimes things don't work out and you make hasty decisions. I think it was right for them to break up because he was leaving and at his lowest point. I also don't think that there was so much of a romantic point on his end towards you know who, but a thank you for all you have done for me. The president G plot was a bit much, but kinda made sense. I liked the ending but wish that the other part of the adult triangle won.

That was a pretty good ending.  Could've used more closure and it did step on some toes but I think Satomi deserves to be happy.

WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED MANGAKA?! WHAT THE FLYING DRY FUCK?!

 

And honestly, I didn't get the reason about the Parent's break up.

 

1-living happily in store

2-loaded granny interferes; asks mom to go back

3-business go dooooooooooown

4-mom goes

5-comes back with stuff

6-dad feels betrayed

7-?????? mom gets angry as fuck and leaves?

8-?????? dad gets depressed and becomes a writer/actionist/otaku?

9-girl feels lonely and grows up

10-start of the story

 

I mean, why did these parent get over dramatic over some stupid shit. OFC the dad feels betrayed but to this extent?! what about the mom? because he rejected her goodwill she stopped loving him? does it mean she didn't love him in the first place?!

 

I know that without 7-8 there would be no story but... isn't it kinda unbelievable/unplausible?

Also you might want to use spoilers for plot points, since there might be people who haven'ts finished the series yet reading the comments

Thanks for the amazing series guys, I wish shinya would just stick with meiko and we'd get our childhood friends couple ending but, life's hard I guess.

I don't accept.

The FUCK'd he break up with hot college girl

seemed a bit off for him I think

Thank you for completing the series! I wish that Shinya stayed with Meiko, but otherwise it was a relatively happy ending. Great manga.

Thank you for completing this series!

Not sure how I feel about the ambiguous age gap romance tidbit at the end there, but since it was never fleshed out I don't have a big problem with it. In any case, it's a wonderful story. Heartwarming family stuff like this always makes me smile. Hope to see more like it in the future.

thanks aranea for completing this series ^^

Wait didn't this end a bit too quickly? I'm gonna need to go trough the raws again because I can't help feeling that there must be some chapters missing.

Wh7y shinya & meiko break up, It's bad ending for me.

I'm not going read any other series from this author.

I want a white board like that

I'm content. The drama was unnecessary and poorly handled, but it wasn't too melodramatic. Everyone got the end they deserved and all is well.

 

That page 28 though. I would be unendingly mad about that if manga faggot wasn't sent back home to the cuckshed.

Wait, hold up, glasses lady was 19? Oh man... Boy was I off.... Ahem, decent end I suppose? 

Felt like it ended a bit too quickly, but still loved it from beginning to end.

Tadaa, complete. I might change a few pages here and there later. I sure rushed through this series in a month, huh. Feels kinda satisfying. Thank you mangaka for not being shounen-tier in terms of redraws. Thank you all for sticking for this series.

Please let them all work out. Please let Satomi's family be together, Satomi and Ebisu be together, and please, PLEASE, let Shinya and Meiko be together. They're all such adorable couples, I swear to Christ if that b*tch of a Grandmother shuts them down I'll riot.

 

She will...

 

She will.

Weird story. It doesn't really feel all that well planned out.
