I blame American television for the problem some people have telling the difference between tragedy and melodrama.
Yes, it is indeed the first published yuri manga. I'm glad that it was, because the mangaka paved the way for yuri to become a meaningful genre, often more original and more artistic than straight romantic-comedy. read more

I like that many of the panels are dedicated to simple changes in facial expression, or reactions to a strange comment from someone else. It's a nice touch and it makes this series feel more like an anime than a manga.
There are some low points: there's a lot of sex in this manga, too much for a 16 year old character like the protagonist, and the ending is rushed. Eventually, the side story between two males kind of takes over the romance between the two lead female characters. read more

Miwa is encouraged by her girlfriend Moriya, who compliments her by telling her that she has a very sexy gaze, before giving her a romantic kiss. The story is interesting because the characters are not clearly opposites, and they still remain distinguishable; it also conveys the feeling of warmth that it was going for without using any thematic elements.
The art is light and there is very little tone used, which gives the manga a dream-like atmosphere.

I don't think I can give it a higher score than 8 because the ending is a little cheesy, as if it was written for self-satisfaction; under the circumstances, the atmosphere seems too positive. Still, it's not a bad ending to the story. read more

The second story is about a pro archer who's embarrassed about her masculine body, and her classmate unexpectedly finds out about her embarrassment...
A perverted spice teacher takes the stage in the third story. She likes her students, but not the male ones, who are too unrefined for her.
The fourth story is about a female painter and her subject. She quit painting in front of other people for a while, to protect herself.
Both stories are ecchi, and the one chapter format doesn't give the author much of a chance to show the characters interacting. The second and fourth stories are more artistic than the others, because they focus on more realistic problems. The art is simple and a little rough, but this gives each story a feeling of spontaneity and genuineness. The series seems to be titled Concerto after the first story, seeing as the rest of them don't have anything to do with music. read more
