Once upon a time, there was a middle-aged Japanese salaryman, a schoolgirl, and a speed demon of a truck driver. The man tried to rescue the girl from the truck, and...

As someone who used to love and follow this manga avidly the past 3-4 years, I can’t help but be disappointed at how far this manga has either fallen or how my manga taste has changed — setting higher standards by the chapter.

The game premise is certainly a hard premise to mess up, since there are so many options and paths to go with it, and it still somehow remains interesting. This likewise logic applies to this manga, but somewhere along the journey, the manga lost all of its flare and uniqueness — this could be due to burn out or the stagnant/mess of a ...
