These short works by a master of manga storytelling are rich with emotion and unexpected outcomes. Decidedly human, they deal with the kinks and quirks of love, lust, missed opportunity, fate, and temptation that make life both tragic and comic.

Among the 3 volumes of Short Program, this 1st one contains absolutely the best stories. All the 8 stories tell about LOVE. A wonderful, pure, innocent and poetic love, so hard to find in nowadays stories and nowadays reality.

If you have never read any Adachi's story, you MUST start from this. This single volume really shows how poetic Adachi Mitsuru is.

Of course, if you already love Mitsuru Adachi, you MUST read it.
