Fresh out of college, Rikuo Uozumi sees little point in pursuing any particular career. Instead, he works part-time in a convenience store while struggling to pay his bills. But his humdrum routine soon changes with the unexpected appearance of two women: Shinako Morinome, a former classmate that Rikuo is still in love with, and Haru Nonaka, an odd high school dropout with a crow as her pet.

Though Rikuo hopes that his genuine feelings will reach Shinako, she herself battles a personal matter that has closed off her heart to love. Meanwhile, the bright and lively Haru is upfront about her growing infatuation with Rikuo. Despite everything, Rikuo tries to maintain the flow of his slow days; however, with Haru around, peace and quiet is never an option—and he might just start to enjoy the change in pace.

At least that was the case for me. I hope it's the same for others.

Meet Ruiko and Haru, our protagonists.
Ok, not really, that seems very misleading.
Let's start all over.

kinda spoilers. also venting.
a must read.
a magnificent masterpiece at least for me. it describes adult life and its challenges. specifically "what is love?" and it delivers well. Art and story are suburb as well as the characters major and minor, with well thought out relationships that makes it real as real can get.
it is kinda slow as it continued for like 18 years, but it had to for the development.
it concludes in an objectively good ending. but it still make me sad. especially when i remember shinako. why does it hurt to be an adult?
even though its end is not sad for the characters, ...
