The comic features a seemingly lonely 20-something Yusuke Serizawa working for a law office while studying for the bar exam. Walking home from work one evening, he gets into an accident and a mysterious woman takes him to medical care. Later, that same person calls him in the hospital, and Serizawa realizes that the woman who saved him also knows him from his past – but won’t reveal who she is. The revelation sets off a chain of memories as Serizawa attempts to piece together who is savior is and what he should do moving forward. the main thrust of the comic in its first half, the second half and the entire second volume are set in the main character’s past. We see a younger Serizawa in middle school and high school relationships, crushing on his college-age cram school teacher, and a college-age Serizawa juggling close friendships and romantic relationships. He’s generally a sweet kid, but a heart-on-your-sleeve kind of bumbler, and he lets the relationships he has with male friends dominate the ways he interacts with women, sometimes in very nasty ways. Nao Emoto’s beautiful art carries the comics even when the storytelling is a little choppy. Emoto is especially good at conveying the emotions of characters, with expressive faces flush with comics even when the storytelling is a little choppy. Emoto is especially good at conveying the emotions of characters, with expressive faces flush with embarrassment, sadness joy, and sometimes longing. The pacing is a little stop and start, but with each relationship the story moves at a brisk pace, even when it seems like the story is might dawdle. Me Not, we get these nostalgia-washed versions of Serizawa’s romantic life. It’s easy to look backwards and see things as better than they were; if nostalgia is the act of turning memories into lies, then Serizawa is a liar through and through. That said, Hsu and Emoto aren’t really interested in the reader deciphering “the truth” in the lies of these nostalgic stories. Rather, each relationship is has some kind of theme. One is based on difficulty communicating in the same language, while another is affected by the opinions of a group of bullying friends. Each relationship so far has ended in a bitter, maybe bittersweet way. The story is, after all, about Serizawa coming to terms with failed relationships
