Just having broken up with her boyfriend of five years, 26-year-old Michiyo Ozawa goes drinking with her coworkers. She meets with an unfortunate accident when the elevator to her apartment is out of order. Having little choice but to resort to asking the nearest household for access to their toilet, she meets Zenji Oyamada, a tenant who seems like a somewhat ordinary guy on the surface—until Ozawa notices the mountain of boxes in his room. Oyamada's brother likes sending him these boxes that contain trinkets from each of his eccentric, rapidly changing hobbies while overseas.

Instantly intrigued by the boxes, Ozawa is asked by Oyamada if she would like to open one of them. As Ozawa does so, a heartwarming story about an ordinary couple and the strange boxes they open begins.

Maybe it spoke to me more to see two adults live a little more on the ...

This was so cute man! It's about a 26 year old office lady who split from her bf of 5 years and befriends with a computer programmer. The two really get on well with no pointless drama involved. it's honestly a great change to see no stupid love triangle nonsense making an appearance because goddamn there's way too many of them out there! There's even no stupid misunderstandings involved either and reading the whole 35 chapters was relaxing enough to indulge, lads!

I think this manga would give anyone a nice boost if they feel their life is beyond hectic or if someone ...

Light spoilers

A very sweet romance story. There is no denseness. The pace was good. But it didn't give me a reason to continue reading. I guess I finished it just because I felt empty if I didn't, or maybe also because of the momentum. (Read this in two sittings : Night (most of it), morning (last chapters)

The background art was not detailed but it was detailed enough. However, I do have a problem with the faces. They're so bland.

There aren't many relevant characters in the series, 5 in total I think. They fit their role and they don't bother me.
What bothers me is how ...
