Sayo and Nao are childhood friends and neighbours, but Sayo has been in love with Nao for years. With Nao being a year older than her, Sayo finds it difficult to confess her love for him because she believes he only sees her as a little sister. But when Nao tells her he's moving away, it's now or never...!
Ahh, the Milky Way. You'll only be so lucky to see it if it's on a clear night, away from city lights. However, some people might not know that, according to legend, the Milky Way separates two lovers from meeting. They can only meet on one day of the year. So, what happens if the one person you've been very close to since, well, forever, moves away and (Spoiler alert: cuts off all means of contacts with you?) People go in and out of our lives for a reason, but sometimes, is it really for the best? This review is based entirely on MY opinion, so I'm sorry if it isn't what you were thinking when you read it. I also apologize if this review was off-putting.
Story - 8
I have to tell you beforehand. The story is what usually what I take in the most account for when I review. Also, to be honest, if I can't really relate much to the story, then I'll most likely not enjoy it as much as I want to. Anyways, I thought the story was very short and sweet. Childhood friends, one of them falls in love with the other and secretly doesn't say anything. The other childhood friend's feelings can be up to your interpretation. It got right to the point.
Art - 7
The art was pretty good. I didn't pay too much attention to it. It was just good. There were lots of dark shades, which is not what I normally see in the manga that I usually read.
Character - 7
WOW. Well, for starters, the main heroine (Sayo) didn't piss me off too much like those cliche and helpless characters you typically see in shoujo manga. Though, I gotta tell you, there was some crying there, and it was not me with the waterworks. The guy character seemed (Nao) to have that older brother complex at the start of the story. But, towards the end, well, you can figure that out. In the beginning, I didn't understand why Nao (Spoiler alert: cut off all means of contacts with Sayo.) But, I soon understood, and, I couldn't really blame him.
Enjoyment - 8
This is based on my enjoyment at the time that I read this manga. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Why? I'm usually a sucker for one shots or shorter series. I prefer less chapters because I like to finish what I read, and I don't have time to read a lot of chapters (though I would really LOVE to read longer series). The story was straight to the point, the art was decent as well as the characters, so I enjoyed the manga.
Overall - 8
Good job to the mangaka! *claps* I liked it. If you have a little bit of spare time, consider reading this short series. It's not like a HUGE and really great manga or anything, but it was cute and will probably give you a nice feeling inside your heart. Unless I'm overly emotional. Then I apologize. Enjoy! ^^
