This collection of one shots by Akira Shouko was thoroughly enjoying. I'm going to review each story separately.
1: 18 diary was something nice to read. The characters were quite fun (as they usually are in one-shots) and the main girl wasn't too weak, which I liked a lot. It wasn't anything overly original in terms of story, that said it was still quite mushy and lovely in parts.

2: 17's Seisho was my least favorite, but don't get me wrong, I still really liked it. It was portraying how sex can interfere with peoples relationships especially with young
adults. I also felt there was a bit about how we make rash decisions when we're depressed. Character was great, once again the main girl was interesting and strong.

3: Tadashii Hoshi no Miagekata was my clear favorite of the three stories. The themes were great, and something I hadn't seen before. The main boy was very appealing, the ballet was a nice touch. What I like most about it was the relationships between each character. It had a huge OMG-how-cute moment at the end, which is always necessary in shoujo manga.

It was a great collection of one-shots,very satisfying and if you're looking for something nice and mushy to read. This a great way to go.
