Machi Morimoto is a girl who is expected to settle down, get married, and become a stay-at-home mother. Her parents nag her about finding a suitor but she is neither interested in nor understands love. In an attempt to stop her parents from controlling her life any more than they do, she marries her best friend Hana Agaya, who lost her job and needed a place to crash.

Hana is into girls, and she's had a crush on Machi since high school. Machi though, has never experienced the tender feeling of loving or being loved, while Hana is charismatic and outgoing, always doing what she loves and having fun.

As the short manga comes to a swift end, only time will tell if their fake marriage will allow true love to flourish or end up driving them apart.

I picked this book up and I read it all in one sitting. I have to say it's really good! The characters are great. It doesn't focus on high school students, but two young adults living on their own. It deals with real life issues. I got into it and loved it! Then I found out that this is a one-shot manga...

I'm pretty sad that there are great characters, a good setting, and great ideas thrown into this and be made a one-shot with four chapters.

Anyways good book!
8/10 it's staying on my shelf to be read again!

I'm happy that this manga focuses on adults in the working world instead of highschoolers because I feel lesbian representation in manga is often overwhelmingly in school settings.

This story well addressed not only lesbianism and homophobia but sexism in the workplace as in Japan, they call it the "bamboo ceiling" for a reason.

I also liked the inclusions of the general gay woman experience that was added into the story that would be very relatable for lots of lesbian and bisexual readers (like myself). The storyline was very realistic and I could see this happening in real life. I'm glad the author made such read more

It's very refreshing to read a manga that's about adults living on their own, rather than a teen going though the mundane journey known as high-school. (or middle school)

This story is about a young woman named Machi who is in a charade of a same sex marriage with her best friend Hana to get her parents to stop forcing suitors onto her.
Hana did confess back in high-school she has a lesbian crush on Machi, so it's a little awkward for Machi.
Hana is so cute, she's a carefree commission artist and she does act polite and a little awkward towards Machi.

This manga does touch a little read more
