[If I Could Reach You depicts a] specific kind of pain a lot of queer people, me included, have experienced… It has a lacerating psychological acuity… a tonally diverse slice of life that captures many kinds of moments, both happy and sad…deals with complicated, difficult issues with a sensitivity and grace you rarely see.” -Anime News Network
“An emotional maelstrom…far from the warm, bubbly love stories that have seen recent success in [the yuri genre]. A truly touching tale, with tight writing and stunning artwork.” -Anime UK News
“A phenomenal and emotional devastating yuri manga…beautifully told. It is rare for a manga to so effectively and effortlessly communicate the wretched feelings of its characters.” -Yuri Mother
