Nako is a poverty-stricken 21 year-old in desperate need of a job. She applies for a job at a jewelry store. When shop owner Ren identifies herself as a lesbian, the competition for the position evaporates, leaving only Nako. Ren asks her if her sexual orientation will be a problem, Nako sensibly replies that she's not interested, so she doesn't see any problem.

The comic is a a series of 4-koma strips, and range from beating Nako's state of poverty to death (as in the strip where she's about to eat bread crusts for lunch and is mistaken for feeding the birds) and to Ren's privilege and her orientation. But never in a mean way. Nako's not entirely naive, but she's not entirely clueful either, which makes for a nice mix of goofy silly and plain funny.

This manga was able to make such good impact and impression on me. All the while I was reading it, I was thinking it would have been great if I was either one of the two main characters in the story. The love story is just really enjoyable and somehow, I was able to relate to some scenes and I find that really important on one's work. That is to be able to communicate to your readers and their feelings. The author did a great job for that!

On a side note, the manga having only 7-8 pages per chapter has its downsides.
