Manga / Umibe No Onna Noko
"It feels like there's still something inside... it's such a weird feeling..."

I hardly found what I was looking for, but maybe I never really expected to find anything in the first place.

Umibe no Onnanoko (A Girl on the Shore) is a coming of age series by Inio Asano. After being manipulated and subsequently rejected by a boy she had a crush on, junior high student Koume Sato begins to have sex with classmate Keisuke Isobe, a strange, introverted boy with a crush on her. However, both parties have serious emotional issues, and conflicts soon arise as they begin to spend more time together and others get involved.

The manga is currently completed with two volumes.

Be warned that the series contains graphic pictures of sex/genitalia and some blood and violence. There will also be some NSFW tropes on this page.

This work provides examples of:

  • Jerk Jock: Kashima's brother. Kashima is also sliding into this territory pretty quickly.
  • Masochism Tango: Koume and Isobe are locked pretty tightly in it.
  • No Periods, Period: Averted. Koume has her period twice: once when she's thinking about how she previously had sex with Isobe, and again when she's at Isobe's house.
  • Scenery Porn: As typical of Inio, all the backgrounds regardless of setting (bedrooms, seasides etc.) are gorgeous
  • Their First Time: Averted; Koume and Isobe's first time happens with little fanfare. It doesn't even happen in the manga—it's recalled as a flashback in the first volume.
