That's all you're getting.
If that's already disappointing you, don't bother reading this manga.
Looking for a quick romance to read? Why you reading this review? GO READ IT.
Rather than beating around the bush I'll review this right out.
It's rushed, to be frank they've made a story a little too large for a one shot.
For characters such as those that have been created for this manga (shy ones), this isn't exactly the right story.
If you're into shallow love, no worries.
If you're looking for a manga you're going to treasure, well, you're not going to get that.
Mizuki Kawashita is personally one of my favored mangakas.
She has brilliant art.
This is no exception.
Its plain, but her art style is attractive.
The characters (well mainly the girls - boys are pretty plain), look nice.
Don't expect to get too much character.
I felt personally the characters were characterized rather poorly, I may be seeming rather critical but its the truth.
For example we're told the childhood from Momoka is shy, and it stops there.
We don't get anything else.
You could say its a good thing, and the fact that this is a oneshot so I shouldn't be so stingy with my scoring but seriously.
Script, thoughts, expressions should all be bringing out the character, these shy types aren't made for one shots, you just don't get what you want out of the manga, there is practically no characterization.
It was good.
Not over the top, not too much (maybe a little too less) to absorb, it had its humorous bits (though I didn't smile whatsoever) and the characters were actually somewhat loveable.
Read it if you're bored.
Its a oneshot, for a quick read, if your bored, take some time if you wish.
Don't know why you're reading a review on a one-shot (because one-shots are short).
Enjoyable, I give it an 8. read more
