Editor's Sidebar: Where we hear directly from VIZ editors about series they're currently working on.
When we last left Asuka and Ryu, their long-distance relationship became too difficult to maintain, and Asuka broke up with Ryu. I thought that vol. 8 was full of those tough choices that adults have to make. Facing up to the reality of the situation was left to Asuka.
Ryu still has a bit to work through, and Asuka is wise enough to know that marriage as a compromise won’t cut it. Ryu has to want it just as much as she does. Some may have written off Asuka as a weak female character because her goal is to be a homemaker, but her desire for a family does not make her weak. The life she wants is on her terms.
Everyone’s Getting Married surprised me by how contemporary it is and how it deals with relationships. It’s not a manga that advocates one life choice over another—rather it asks its characters what makes them happy, and that pursuit of happiness is what ultimately determines their futures.
You can read a free preview of Everyone's Getting Married, Vol. 9 here. (This series is rated M for Mature.)
