This is a melancholic omnibus drawn by the master of short stories, Dowman Sayman. As the end of the world draws near, what are people thinking?! Is it only filled with fun? Are there merely moments of repose? What about pure bliss? Living is a dull "melancholy" that is both bitter and sweet... As you read this clever story gimmick unfold, feel it slowly penetrate into your heart!!

They eventually tie together into one overarching theme (I will not write it bcuz its a spoiler). Although the topics explored in each story can be serious, each story usually ends with some sort ...

If we pretend other manga are like beautiful paintings, this one is like a puzzle, which you assemble piece by piece until you get the full picture. Jus like a normal puzzle, you may have some bigger gratification depending on how good is the final product(which in this case is pretty good) but most of your enjoyement will probably come in realizing how one part connects with another, and believe me, this work does this amazingly.
