There's always one bad apple in the group, and in the course of reviewing all the titles up for grabs over at SigIKKI.com, Shunju Aono's I'll Give It My All... Tomorrow fell utterly flat with me.
The story is a comedy based around a 40-year-old man living with his father and high-school aged daughter who decided to quit his job and find himself as a manga artist. The father is belligerent, the daughter works at what appears to be a whorehouse for extra money, and the main character says that he'll really do his best... tomorrow.
I actually had high hopes going into this story. I was hoping that it would be something along the lines of About Schmidt or any other series that picks on older people having a sudden change in life -- a really easy topic to write about -- but it just came off as belligerent and sad. The father's advice and criticisms are straightforward and true, and the main character has no redeeming qualities about him.
I was at least hoping the Dad would go a bit off the wall.
Comedy really is one of those subjective things, so I may be missing something here. It's worth it to go check out the title, but unless you enjoy watching a grown man get disrespected time and time again while he just takes it like a lying dog, then this series will be a pass for you.
