Synopsis

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.

I've been ignoring Short Program for a long time, coz one shots aren't usually my cup of tea. How wrong was I.

Every single chapter of this series is pure Adachi work. If you like this author, you'll enjoy Short Program immensly.

The stories are nice, simple, heart-warming, and interesting. There are plots, and twists, and events, but it falls under the "lovely slice of life" category in my opinion.

Art is definitively Adachi. Vintage, round, dynamic, cute and expressive. Gives an unique vibe.

Characters are also familiar. Same tropes than in his other works, same faces, but it isn't bothersome. Adachi is able to make us believe they read more
