It's not exactly the type of manga I usually read but the story was cute. I liked how main characters were portrayed and the reader could feel how different they are. For fans of yuri manga I think it's great title to check out.
Thank you to NetGalley and publisher for copy of this manga in exchange for honest review.

Review to be posted tomorrow on blog/Goodreads.

I received this manga from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

Here I am again. I read the first volume just a few hours ago (though by the time the review is live it will be yesterday) and it was meh. 2 stars. Maekawa was erghhh, the romance almost non-existent, no sparks to be found. I wasn't looking forward to this one, but I thought if I would read it today I would be done with it, no delaying.

I hated how Maekawa was so dismissive of her kissing Shimizu. Yes, it may not be her first kiss, but she is interested in you, and you were and are very hurtful towards her. The discussion was way too easily solved and I wasn't happy with how easily Maekawa just clicked to another mode. :| Plus, that bonus story and what Shimizu does there? Girl. No. If you don't like it being done to you don't do it to others. BIG FAT NOPE.

This one also mainly focuses on Maekawa and her manga carreer started afresh. Sorry, but I am not a fan of the character, and again I came here for Shimizu and her yuri manga and seeing that develop. I wanted to see romance. Especially since cool and strong Shimizu seemed to just go into meh and down mood. She is constantly saying things that I don't want to hear out of her mouth. Stating she is useless, or that what she does doesn't compare to what Maekawa does. She is constantly doubting herself which is just unhealthy. 

And sure, I can understand why Maekawa is doing the things she is doing, but I am still not happy with the girl. She says such harmful and hurtful things that I am just pissed most of the time. It feels like she is toying with Shimizu. At times it seems like she understands and tries to better only to turn a full round and do her cold and angry and hateful routine. She even slaps Shimizu on the hands when she was just being friendly. And then she even gets angry at Shimizu for no freaking reason and this is how it goes all the time. Cold Hot Cold Hot Cold Normal Freezing Freezing Doom. If she would just fucking talk to Shimizu in a NORMAL adult way then maybe I would respect and like her a bit more. But this? This relationship doesn't feel at all healthy to me. If someone treated me like Shimizu did? If she said all those things? I would have stayed away. I am sorry. I also have to choose for myself. And seeing how Shimizu is doing... 

The art was so-so, I wasn't a fan most of the times. 

This is the last volume for me. No more of this. I want a healthy relationship, I want sparks and fun kisses and sweet romance.

I still love this story, continuing from Vol 1. The main couple is so cute, and I love how Shimizu is such a fangirl. Maekawa is rather aloof and a bit of a difficult character to interpret. It's hard to tell if she really likes Shimizu or not (she totally does!). Shimizu is so sincere and good-hearted; it was nice to see her come to terms with her sexuality.

These two better get together!

The art is cute, and the story is cuter. The characters are wholesome and feel human, and neither feel sexualized or stereotyped. I love how their interaction feels natural, and I look forward to how the rest of the story turns out.

Maekawa was convinced by Shimizu to draw again, they're spending more time together and their relationship is getting complicated. It appears they may be developing feelings for each other, but they're both scared.

I don't know what to think of this series. It's kind of funny how they confess then ignore each other then start over again, but it makes me feel like they won't actually be together and it's frustrating.

A cute and easy-to-read Yuri romance manga (or what seems like the beginning of one...) I liked the art style. It's very clean and visually pleasing. The contrast between the girls, visually speaking, is also great. I would've liked for there to be more conflict or depth to this, but it's a slice-of-life manga so it's very laid-back and has no unnecessary angst. My only complaint is the book ended on a cliffhanger! However, the extras at the end were cute and nice to read. Guess I'll have to wait until the next volume comes out. I'm excited to see how Maekawa's career as an aspiring mangaka progresses in the later volumes.

I received an ARC of this book for reviewing purposes from NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I really enjoyed this book! It was very sweet and wholesome, and it made my heart feel whole! I read a lot of heavy books, so this was a welcome thing to help me destress and relax from the topics.

Still Sick is a super adorable yuri novel. It's very slice of life and low stakes but the feelings and problems of the characters are so moving. The romance it uber slow burn but I looooove friends to lovers and pining/unrequited love so it was fine. I'm fiiiiiiiine. I'm not frustrated waiting for them to get together at aaaaaaaall, I'm fine. 

This volume develops the characters further as well as exploring their issues and desires. This volume focuses on Shimizu coming to terms with her feelings as well as Maekawa facing her writers block and slowly start to draw manga again!! It was frustrating at times but still very enjoyable and honest in a way. You can't get over your hang ups suddenly, it's a slow battle. It was fun to see how the characters interact with each other and the art was really cute.  
I highly recommend this series, it's super cute and super fluffy and so much fun. (I hope they get together in the next volume TT-TT )

Romance manga, not necessarily my style, but for those who like it, it looks goods, very neat illustrations for this kind of comic/manga. Good potential!
