This is a one shot, meaning it's a very short manga (a total of 8 chapters, roughly 30-40 pages per chapter). If you’re hoping for something long running, turn away now.

PLOT (5/10—just average)

The plot is fairly simple and, to be frank, completely predictable. It’s pretty much all the same romance troupes and clichés which have already been played a million times over in shojo. Second year Nayu falls for her childhood friend Oumi (one year younger than her). She realizes her feelings for Oumi approximately when Oumi tells her he has a crush on a girl in school.

Mediocre, but cute.

The premise is quite interesting - I don´t read many mangas with ML as childhood friends. But with word interesting this is how far it gets.
I think that the length didn´t do the story any good - since the main characters undergo some changes regarding their feelings, from chapter to chapter, it feels unnatural.
The art is quite mediocre, but there were some scenes, where the mangaka showed off her abilities. Overall this was okay for a quick read, but I don´t plan on rereading it at all.
I recommend it to those who are emotionally drained from other psychological/drama mangas and need something read more

Childhood Friends. The other one falls for someone else while the other one gets left behind. In the end, they end up into lovers after realizing they love each other. This kind of set up is cliche and we already read, watch or even see it a lot of times. Is there a unspoken rule that childhood friends should be together? Isn't it more interesting if someone gets taken away by an outsider because she is being taken forgranted?


Interesting characters in a short story really come out once in a blue moon. The characters read more

If you don’t mind how predictable it can be, it’s probably like the other generic shoujo you’ve read if you’ve read others. The most obvious shipping from the start will be there in the end and others might form based on who’s left over. I think what’s a little different about this manga, though, is the whole childhood friend relationship. Most of the time when a shoujo manga includes a childhood friend, he/she isn’t there in the beginning and comes in as almost an afterthought on the mangaka’s part. In other words, he/she isn’t taken seriously as a suitor and is only inserted for some read more
