The two stories in this volume are both plot-heavy and the sex is fairly tame considering the hentai label. While the stories and characters are both solid, the development of both feels rushed--marring what is almost an excellent adult manga.
Story (6): Both stories are about women who dislike men finding love. In the first, an isolated tennis star recognizes that she also loves the sickly childhood friend who has always loved her. In the second, an insecure, game-loving office lady falls for a high school boy that she meets at an arcade. Both have decent set-ups and endings... but both could have used a couple more chapters to flesh out the characters and the plots.
Art (6): The art is passable, but forgettable. The sex scenes are fine, but nothing special. A couple of the female characters in the first story look too much alike at times.
Character (8): The best part of this manga is the characters. They are surprisingly deep and well fleshed out, considering how short each story is. Both of the female leads are tough-but-vulnerable in an appealing sort of way, and the guys aren't complete push-overs. Again, they all could have used another chapter or two... but what's there is quite good.
Enjoyment (7): All in all, this is a solid manga; could have been longer, and it feels more "borderline-H" than true hentai, but that's not really a bad thing (necessarily).
Overall (6): A decent manga that's on the verge of being very good. Still, if you like porn-with-plot, this is very solid. read more
