This is an amazingly beautifuly written manga.
The story is very simple: a girl called Saya travells in search of her fiancee who didn't return after a war he was fighting in ended, and finds that many things about him have changed. It's a simple setting, but the plot twist at the end, although sudden, is both impossible to predict and it doesn't seem out of place with the rest of the story. I'm usually wary about one-shots, but this story was really well thought through.
The art was really beautiful. None of it seemed in any way rushed. A definate
The characters were good. It's difficult to show a character to its full potential an a one-shot, but the two main characters were very well portrayed here. The flashbacks offer glimpses of their personalities from before and during the war, and the love that they have for each other is clear for anyone to see.
Overall, i really enjoyed this manga. It's only about 40 pages long, so it definately won't take long to read. Anyone who wants to read something along the lines of a fantasy-historical-romance, this is for you.
