'Jingga', The Unadorned Freshmaker



Unbelievable! I've never been so stunned before by a character in a novel, but 'Jingga' in "Infinitely Yours" by Orizuka could really shake my mind up. I should tell ya, that I've already fallen in love with this character even at the page of 60 only—still far less than halfway to the end.

'Jingga', who is a Korean freak, knocks me by her light-hearted nature, sometimes innocent yet caring, and almost insensitive of pain. She can always heat up every cold moment of the storyline. It makes me craving for every new page in order to dig up her personal details, a bit more and more.

So fellas, where else in this world we can find a woman as rollicking as 'Jingga'? Almost impossible, huh? But at least, this character has proved the power of fiction, which allow us to see some greatness that out of our expectation for them to be appear in real life. Only fiction could make an assist to perfection, and Orizuka already did one. Great stuff!
