(Review pulled from my Goodreads page! Link to my page provided in my profile.)
Unfortunately this manga felt a little disorganised to me. In both the characters' thoughts and the structure of this manga, it feels like the mangaka didn't really know what they were doing and constructed a story in roughly a day or two and went with it without really thinking if any of this made sense.
Several times the mangaka has alluded to the fact that something is wrong with one of the characters, however we don't get an introduction into what that problem is. We're brought into the story in the middle of
the conflicting feelings and given no explanation. It's very easy to get lost and not understand.
Even the conflicts and problems that did happen didn't really seem all that huge - certainly not enough to warrant the reaction it got from the characters. Occasionally it felt as though everyone was being melodramatic and it really took away from the story.
Supposedly there is a love triangle between Kanoh, Midori and Hanabusa, but we don't get an introduction to that. Like everything else, we're thrust into their conflict with no warning, preparation or back-story. How are we really supposed to root for anyone when we don't even know them? An example of messy story-telling.
If a little more thought had gone into this manga, I believe it could've really been a good one. However it only turns out to be a good way to waste the forty to sixty minutes it takes to get through it.
