Created in the early 1980s, My Picture Diary is not technically comics (or manga), but rather an illustrated journal. It records the day-to-day life of its creator, Fujiwara Maki, and the reality of her married life with Yoshihiro Tsuge, a major pioneer of literary manga, but also a sufferer of depression. As such, it offers a fascinating counterpoint to Tsuge's work.
Here's the TCJ review, by Hagai Palevsky, which focuses on the emotional tone of the work, with its notes of depression and frustration.
