Manhua in a Nutshell: The Other Side of the Mirror

The Other Side of the MirrorThe Other Side of the Mirror v01 c02 - 054 is a story about two people who got lost. Through unfortunate events their lives become connected and somehow they manage to find a way to keep going, with a chance of actually reaching happiness.

I decided to mention this manhua in a separate post because I found the art beautiful and slick (albeit somewhat western) and because the story was not happy-go-lucky and carefree, but rather dark and foreboding.

What The Other Side of the Mirror lacks is attention. Tackling shattered dreams, betrayal and salvation in another needs a bit more consideration in order to avoid looking botched. Additionally, eight chapters are cut up with unrelated stories which for me were not “extra” but a violent and unnecessary intrusion into the flow of the main story.

Not a bad read. Could be better.
