I really loved this manga because it changes from the stereotyped manga styles that you usually get in other works, which is refreshing. It's entertainning ,it's only one book ( so you don't need to collect an entire series to get the story) ,it has a deep and original love story, nice characters and it's the manga that made kiriko Nananan one of my new favorite mangaka. Some people might be bothered by the art or find it to simplistic, but I find that it goes really well with the style. I am not a big Yuri fan but I really enjoyed it read more

*Amateurish autobiographical apology to a girl the author kissed in high school - masquerading as a manga. Typical flaws like irrelevant events that neither entertain nor add any sort of dimension to story, or readability-contradictory events like multiple people changing hair cuts/styles at the same time (just because it actually happened that way). Or sudden bursts of extreme detail in a manga utterly devoid of it. About people who never appear in-panel... at all, ever.
*Ridiculously short on content. All 10 chapters of ~20 pages take altogether maybe as long as a really short chapter of "NHK" or half a chapter of "Kimi wa Petto" to read more

This earlyish manga from Nananan Kiriko is concise and staid, but there is so much emotion buried just beneath the surface that flashes into the forefront at key moments, through the gestures, tears and words the characters can no longer hide. There is a bit less going on compared to a story like Pumpkin and Mayonnaise, but it's notable for focusing on two young queer girls and the circumstances which ultimately keep them from each other. It is a painful, sad, realistic story, but not, I think, without hope for the main characters. As for the art, the clean linework and lack of much variation read more

I started to read this because I wanted to read a Shoujo-ai manga and I saw this one and thought: "why not give it a try?" So that's what I did.
It's true that the art is very different of the normal manga I would read, but it's not that I didn't like it because of that. Because in some way I kind of liked the different art in this manga after a while( I admit that I thought it was just really crappy at first).
The problem with this manga is only that the two main characters look the same. Really it took a while read more
