Jokyo Monogatari

Natsumi is a self-assured but naïve country girl. She travels to Tokyo to attend college and pursue her dreams of becoming a published manga artist. But Natsumi is soon brought down to earth with a bump when she finds herself having to scrape a living to stay in the city by juggling college, a low-paid job and a good-for-nothing boyfriend. If she wants to succeed, she must learn to pick herself up and use her experiences, both good and bad, as inspiration for her art.
