What the community says about A Drifting Life
- AnonymousWritten on April 16, 2018" A Drifting Life will keep you glued to the book.The book is very interesting and well written in a simple way which is cool.This is one of the manga's that interests me most because of the drama in it."
- AnonymousWritten on March 28, 2018"This may sound weird, but I really like depressing stories. Life isn't happy, and I like to see people struggle through hardship and difficulty and understand that people don't always overcome this. This story is told in a very simple way, with very little text and linework, and I think that adds to the emotion. However, the localization isn't very good, as they mirrored the book for Western audiences, which rearranged the panels awkwardly."

in What are the best josei mangasAnonymousWritten on March 24, 2018"Drifting Life is the original gekiga manga that inspired the genre by bringing it to new heights. It became very popular and was later adapted to a film. I enjoyed the time I spent reading it, and always looked forward for another opportunity to crack it open."

in What are the best seinen mangasAnonymousWritten on March 19, 2018"This is one of the best manga books I have had the pleasure of experiencing. It gets this top rating because of the fantastic artwork but also the historical portrayal of Japan after the war. I took my time reading this one because I just got more out of it that way."
- AnonymousWritten on March 24, 2018"I read the A Drifting Life during a flight to Japan earlier last year and really enjoyed the illustrations and all of the interactions between all of the characters in the book. I recommend this book to all Japanese Manga fan's that enjoy really nice illustrations and book's with a lot of drama. "
