I Want to Eat Your Pancreas

One day, I – a high schooler – found a paperback in the hospital. The “Disease Coexistence Journal” was its title. It was a diary that my classmate, Sakura Yamauchi, had written in secret. Inside, it was written that due to her pancreatic disease, her days were numbered. And thus, I coincidentally went from Just-a-Classmate to a Secret-Knowing-Classmate. It was as if I were being drawn to her, who was my polar opposite. However, the world presented the girl that was already suffering from an illness with an equally cruel reality…

Don't be fooled by the ambiguous title, just read the 1st chapter (not prologue) before you decide on anything else.

I just read till the lastest TLed chapter in one go and I'm still feeling it... Moved, stirred, as though my heart has been lured in by the fragrance of a hook the novel threw. The throbbing that aches from being caught on the hook yet irresistibly so.

Hats off to the translator for working on such a deep and intricate novel, I'm sure it was hard work to bring forth the... more>> subtle feelings between the lines. It also makes me want to read the novel in Japanese to get a feel of how the conversations actually flowed...


Not recommended for those who want to stay faint-hearted.

Alas, the prologue spoilt some of the enjoyment of the story for me. I would strongly advise against reading chapter 0 unless you want to know how it ends (though I haven't read till the last chapter).

Quite sweet and interesting. Honestly a beautiful piece. Left me wanting for more. The translation quality is perfect. I saw no grammatical errors at all. The sentence structure is also on point.

If you're looking for something more serious, like a novel, this is something you might like to try.
