The moving, provocative manga about the struggles and triumphs in love of a woman and a man who uses a wheelchair comes to print! Fans of tumultuous manga romance -- like A Silent Voice and Your Lie in April -- don't miss this!


A company get-together reunites 26-year-old Tsugumi with her high school crush, Itsuki. In the years they've been apart, Itsuki has realized his dream of becoming an architect--but along the way, he's also suffered a spinal cord injury that's left him in a wheelchair. Seeing Itsuki again rekindles Tsugumi's feelings for him. It also forces her to confront her own hidden prejudices. Itsuki's disability seems like an intimidating obstacle at first, but soon, Tsugumi discovers that her world feels imperfect without him.

Praise for Perfect World 1

“Depicts with great delicacy and courage the difficulties some with disabilities experience getting involved in romantic relationships… Rie Aruga refuses to romanticize, pushing her heroine to face the reality of disability. She invites her readers to the same tasks of empathy, knowledge and recognition.” –

“A thoughtful love story. The emotional core of both plot and characters indicates a thoughtfulness that bodes well for the series as a whole.” – Anime News Network
