Hello everyone! I know this isn't a particularly popular manga, but it is highly rated. It just finished recently on April 15th, 2015. There's 48 chapters and it was first published back in December 2008. The art style looks a bit like something out of the 1980's old-style manga.

The English translation of the title is "Ran and the Ashen World" or "Ran and the Gray World"


Here's a quick summary taken from MAL. Though I think it's more enjoyable if you don't know what you're getting into:


As a mild disclaimer, there is 2 or 3 chapters with full-frontal female nudity in them. It's not a big deal, but if that bothers anyone it's good to know before hand. Also, none of the nudity involves the main character (who's a 10-year-old girl).

There's a bit con controversy with 1 particular character in the manga, and if you ever read it, you'll know exactly who I'm talking about. Hopefully, those of you who have read it and would like to talk about it can have a civil discussion in this thread.

Some pages from the manga. I've put them in spoilers because of how large they are, not because they actually spoil any of the story's plot.

It's one of my favourite mangas.
The art style is beautiful and the storyline is good, I fell in love with it as soon as I started reading. I see what you mean about the controversy but for me it doesn't ruin it.
