About this deal

I Want to Eat Your Pancreas seems like, at first, just another doomed romance. Boy meets terminally ill girl. Girl changes boy's worldview, or vice versa. Boy and girl fall in love. Girl passes away, leaving boy brokenhearted, but better for the time they shared. It's original and it's honest. I Want to Eat Your Pancreas will certainly tug at your heart strings. I did not cry at this one but it did make my heart swell to double its size. It's one of those books that you finish, put down, and then sit in silent reflection for a few minutes before you're able to move on.

I Want to Eat Your Pancreas is one of my least favorite manga this year. However, regardless of my frustration with the protagonists, I liked the overall message of the story: You can enjoy life even if you have a terminal illness. Optimism is immensely difficult to achieve in this case, so cancer victims who learn to live with the idea of dying soon are inspiring in their own right. On the one hand, this could have turned out extremely trite, with characters working as living tropes and a storyline more predictable than the death of the character who walks into the basement during a horror movie.

She's starting to be the part of his life now where he uses his time to visit her in his free time and clearly I did not expect him to change from someone who's a complete loner and introverted who's focusing only on himself to someone who's starting to even observe other people and showing an interest in other people after just a few months meeting her.

I have no idea why people like this manga so much. The driving plot device is the heroine is dying of some pancreas disease.

For context, I think it needs to be mentioned that I don't cry over books that often. As a result, some weird part of me seeks out all the 'tear-jerker' media I can get my hands on to see if it 'works' on me. (Typing this out makes me seem like even more of a weirdo than I already am/have accepted I am.

Seeing the general success of melodrama stories involving some kind of illness or handicap (not just in anime or manga but in media general) makes me wonder, could it be that they are so greatly received simply because people would feel bad not rating it super high, like not doing that would feel like they are being mean towards the poor patients? Well, not that I can fault the work itself for such overreaction of course, unless it’s deliberately exploiting this.

By the time that I finished reading, I was absolutely emotionally drained. And physically, but that was probably because of the run my mom made me go on. I don't think I've ever cried so much over the fragility and virtue of human life. the penultimate chapter is super tearjerky, going over sakura's journal from the last months of her life. i can absolutely imagine a poignant anime version!! but i really struggled with the manic pixie dream girl thing. sakura teaches our male main character to have empathy and care for others. her final note literally says she spent her 17 years waiting for him to need her, just like cherry blossoms wait for spring???? oh god. seriously??? must this young woman's life be reduced to the impact she has on this dude???
