This is a brilliant example of Hagio's modern style. I appreciated the mature themes of frustration with the rat race and undefined middle-aged longing. Her art has changed since the 70s, but there is still something unusual about it--it stands out from the cliched, indistinguishable mass of modern manga. Strange as it may sound, one of the things I appreciated most was all of the realistically fat people, that and the sense of poignancy without high drama.

If you see this manga at first glance, you probably won't see the appeal. That's what I first thought until I saw that it was Hagio Moto's work. If you are an otaku, please read at least one of her works.

Although it was a one shot, it was very outstanding and touching. I never knew just a few pages of manga could affect me like that. After reading it for the first time, go back and read it again. Then it would make more sense, and you would see what the story was all about.

Please read this manga. I recommend this to read more
