Give Me a Nickname by Niboshiko Arai

(1 customer review)

Amou Takahito is just a name to everybody. The name represents a mysterious mangaka that may be a woman, or maybe not? José, on the other hand, has a face anybody would recognize. He and his bright smile are plastered across every magazine page, and everybody swoons. The two almost opposites live together and somehow manage to balance Amou’s quiet and prickly personality and José’s brightness and loud volume under one roof. What comes of a relationship between an anonymous artist craving zero love and a famous model with enough affection for two?

    Niboshiko Arai’s art alone is enough to merit at least three stars from me – it’s fantastically expressive, which makes a huge difference when it comes to stories like this which are primarily quiet character-focused pieces. Give Me a Nickname is a look at the relationship between the two leads (as seen primarily by a temporary houseguest) as they navigate from a childhood friendship to an adult partnership. It can be a touch confusing in some places, but it’s ultimately a lovely look at two people figuring out how to honestly connect with each other.
