By any standards this is a depressing tale. A young Chinese girl's thoughts are on suicide and the only one she hopes will understand her is an alcoholic artist. Yeah, you know this has to end well. I'm not sure why I didn't care much for the comic. I like depressing stories about suicide (in an aesthetic sense) and it is beautifully painted. Yet the story lacks deep characters and (perhaps this is the cause of the former problem) I had a hard time distinguishing the girl characters due to the overly vivid coloration and blurring imagery.
