Wake up, sleeping beauty

Amazon.com: Wake Up, Sleeping Beauty 1 (9781632365194): Morino ...

As you know I read plenty of mangas, some of them are okay and some of them are brilliant. And ‘Wake up, sleeping beauty’ is one of those brilliant manga.


Despite being a scaredy-cat and crybaby, high schooler Tetsu Misato finds himself working at the eerie estate on the hill, where Shizu—the only child of the Karasawa family—is secreted away. However, his friendship with Shizu quickly turns to fear when several spirits of the dead appear before him, borrowing her appearance. As he struggles to find the humanity in her supernatural condition, Tetsu must also face a question at once terrifying and heartbreaking: What if the true Shizu never returns?

This funny and heartrending romantic manga set in modern Tokyo is not the fairy tale you remember! This time, Prince Charming is a teenage janitor, and this Sleeping Beauty’s curse is a supernatural, gender-bending dream that threatens to pull them both into a deeper and deeper slumber .

I just read this manga today and I totally loved it. When I started reading it I didn’t know what to expect because this manga is from a author I don’t know and the synopsis was totally confusing. But fortunately the manga was really good. The one thing which dissapointed me was the number of chapters, the story was getting really good. It’s fine anyway because it had a great ending.


Tetsu misato

A third-year in high school. who begins working part-time under his father’s housekeeping agency to save up money due to personal circumstances. He is assigned to work at the Karasawa Estate, where he soon becomes friends with and the personal housekeeper for the daughter of Tetsu’s employers, Shizu. He is nimble with his hands and is afraid of ghosts.

Shizu karasawa

The only child of Tetsu’s wealthy employers. She is prone to possesion by spirits by spirits of the dead and has been forbidden from leaving her house. Eventually Tetsu and shizu become close friends.

Spirits inside shizu

Haru- A caring, athletic man

Shinobu- Shizu’s grandfather, loves gardening

Mirei- Loves fashion, hates cleaning

Kanato- A boy’s spirit. The recent one to take rsidence in shizu’s body

Certainly a hidden gem that can make me shed a tear for all of the characters. Wonderful settings coupled with brilliant storyline with magnificent Finale that will surely be memorable. I will forever remember this manga as it hits close to home for a lot of people who lost their loved ones and I believe that those people will definitely watch over us as we live on a better life. This manga has made realize a lot of things.

This is the first time I cried so much while reading a manga( I also cried this much while reading 5 centimeters per second ). I had to hold back the tears so many times, as I read more chapters, it starts to seriously tug your heart strings. The characters are so relatable.

This manga is so underrated. I don’t know how an manga like this never got an anime. I’m so angry. Most beautiful thing I ever read so far! Literally teared up throughout most of it! Definitely worth the read.

I guess this manga really hit me on the feels. I think this a manga I’ll definetely remember forever.

I cannot wait to read other works of megumi morino san. It just came like that.
