Asano, Inio(2008)

These days, life is full of decision-making deadlines for the attractive, freckled Meiko Inoue. She is a recent college graduate in big city Tokyo. A disgruntled office employee, she is prepared to quit work and just figure out things later with her boyfriend Naruo. He has quietly moved in with her as he cannot cover his rent as a freelance illustrator. If he can manage though, there may be a light at the end of the tunnel. Nauro resurrects a college band with friends and pours his resources into a new--hopefully, successful--CD. Too soon though, Meiko finds life has different options after a sudden twist of fate. This is an appealing, contemplative, even fanciful story about accepting what life has to offer.
