''A Girl on the Shore'' (''Umibe no Onnanoko'') is a coming of age series by Creator/InioAsano. 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, [[LonersAreFreaks 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. Its English translation was released by Vertical Comics in 2016.

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:

* ADateWithRosiePalms: Koume and Isobe do it once together, then [[spoiler:Isobe does it alone after their fight with a vibrator]].
* AllMenArePerverts[=/=]AllWomenAreLustful: Though both Koume and Isobe only have sex so much as a way of trying to fulfill their emotional needs.
* AmIJustAToyToYou: Initially, both Koume and Isobe state that they're basically with each other for sex.
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Despite all the mean comments that bounce back and forth between them, especially from Isobe, there's moments of genuine warmth between them, such as when Koume covers Isobe with a blanket before leaving his house or the two holding hands as they sleep beside each other.
* BigScrewedUpFamily: Isobe's parents are emotionally negligent and almost never home, while his brother [[spoiler:committed suicide]]. To make things worse, [[spoiler:Isobe still lives in their (shared) room with all of his brother's belongings around him]].
* DrivenToSuicide:
** [[spoiler:Isobe's brother by the school's baseball team.]]
** [[spoiler:Isobe]] contemplates this frequently as a result of [[spoiler:his despair over his brother's death and his generally negative outlook on life]], and at the story's climax [[spoiler:Koume thinks that he has, [[SubvertedTrope but he was at a coffee shop]].]]
* FriendsWithBenefits: Though Koume is reluctant to even be seen with Isobe in public, they end up spending a lot of time together.
* JerkAss: Misaki is sleazy and manipulative; he coerces Koume into giving him oral sex prior to the start of the manga, and almost gets her to smoke marijuana at a party, but she refuses and leaves.
* JerkJock: Kashima's brother. Kashima also appears to be on the same track based on [[spoiler:his beating up Isobe]], but by the end of the story he seems to have avoided this.
%%* KidsAreCruel
* MasochismTango: Koume and Isobe are locked pretty tightly in it.
* NoPeriodsPeriod: 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.
* SceneryPorn: As typical of Inio Asano, all the backgrounds regardless of setting (bedrooms, seasides etc.) are ''gorgeous''.
* TheirFirstTime: 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.
