Strange Weather in Tokyo by Hiromi Kawakami

emotional mysterious sad slow-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? Character
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Loveable characters? No
  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


Some of this felt vaguely similar to Mieko Kawakami. The parts of this that dabbled into fantasy were my favorite. However, I couldn’t get over the age/power gap between Tsukiko and Sensei. There were also times where I was really bothered by how Sensei treated Tsukiko.
