  • Great Refrsher

    I have both of Konmari’s books, but this manga was a great refresher to her books and made me appreciate her books all over again.
  • I couldn’t stop reading

    By konketsu
    Many things in this manga related to me on a deep, personal level. I loved every single page, and to be quite honest, I’ll probably read this one or two more times. I just could not put it down. Marie Kondo is a VERY inspirational person. The journey I experienced with Chiaki, our very unorganized main character, and Konmari, who is Ms. Kondo, was one of (spark) joy and personal reflection.
