First of all, this review may contain spoilers (as this is a One Shot it's quite difficult not to spoil anything), so please read at your own risk. That is all.

Wow, this was probably the shortest One Shot I've read up till now. But, even this small amount of content (16 pages) was very intriguing. I definitely like the use of the element "rain" in this manga, because it symbolizes Mai's hardships, sadness and loneliness. Also, for those who don't completely understand the plot. It's basically just another symbolization of the development of Mai's feelings. When Mai decides not to cry anymore, Rain disappears. That's read more

I really enjoyed this manga, id read this manga before joining MAL and then i remembered it, eventually found it (after about an hour of searching) and re-read it.

The art was drawn pretty good although there were some parts that they could have made look a little better but the manga was good overall.

The Characters obviously arent that deep due read more

What can I say about one shots? Well, there short. There isn’t much to talk about really with them because of this. This story is actually rather cute because it doesn’t actually circle around the sex aspect. It’s about a little girl that just wants to be loved and she finds love with the rain or at least a girl who says she’s the rain. The stupid part of the manga though is the ending and this may be considered a spoiler but I have to say it because it’s so short. Why the hell does Rain leave at the end? It makes things much read more
