This story is about an unrequited love triangle. (of a sorts...it kinda turns into a square later....haha) Basically, no one has romantic feelings for the one who likes them. It really didn't have a very original feel to it at first, but it has some good twists and doesn't take too long to develop. I did want more at the end, but the conclusion felt nice and I didn't really mind using my imagination to fill the gaps.
The art fits the story well, but the faces of a lot of the characters look the same or very similar.
None of the characters are particularly original in themselves, but they have some pretty interesting interactions.
A short cute manga to read just for fun :) read more
Art, if you examine it the characters all look the same or similar to me.
Characters are your stereotypical shojou manga characters so nothing refreshing there, but still there were some cute moments.
If you're looking for originality I'd advise against, but again there were some cute moments.
