    My Broken Mariko is startlingly hopeful for a story so bleak. Its about grappling with guilt and grief in a world so uncaring that coworkers will tell you that your best friends death is no excuse to miss work, and signs on the beach warn that suicide isnt a crime, but littering is. Waka Hirako doesnt shy away from how cruel people can be to each other, and how remorselessly some can steal, abuse, and kill. Yet, they also examine the transformative power a single person has to change someones life for the better, to make every day just a little bit more worth living. Not everyone is born into a loving family, nor a good life, but both stories in A Broken Mariko explore how meaningful it is to have even just one friend looking out for you and how having those supportive relationships can influence us, giving us strength as we navigate a life fraught with hardships.
