Synopsis

Ten stories about the everyday life of Sei, an idealistic songwriter, and Miho, the young woman who struggles to support the both of them.

Miho and Sei are living together. She works at a boutique while he tries to make it as a musician. Even though Miho still can’t forget about Hagio, her ex-lover, she is happy in her relationship with Sei. However, all is not well for the young couple. Struggling to make ends meet, Miho decides to take a second job as bar hostess. As she becomes increasingly desperate for money, Miho eventually gives in to one of her client’s sexual advances. When Sei finds out about this he begins to distance himself from her. Things are getting even more complicated for Miho when Hagio suddenly reappears in her life.

There were some panels demonstrating Sei's messiness and lack of motivation to 'live' and how that bothers Miho. Along with the fact he is relying on her heavily regarding finances. Effective to an extent to demonstrate the motivation for her actions, rather than an explanation for her emotions.
