"In this deeply moving first-person story, an introverted high school boy finds his classmate’s diary―and learns her biggest secret. Yamauchi Sakura is dying from a pancreatic disease and now he is the only one person outside her family to know the truth. The last thing the boy wants is to be her friend, but Sakura’s cheerful demeanor and their shared secret draw them together in this heartrending tale of friendship and mortality."


I Want to Eat Your Pancreas is a completed contemporary manga by Yoru Sumino.

I wish I could say this was deeply moving, but I mostly thought this was just meh. That could be my fault because I went into this with my expectations a little too high seeing as all the reviews said it was a very emotional story. Unfortunately for me, I just didn’t connect to this and didn’t feel much for the characters. I also think the ending to this came out of left-field and let me in disbelief.

There are other sentimental mangas that I think would be better than this one.
