Damn, guys! You should really give this cutie a try! I like everything about it, including the old-fashion art style and plot-twist. And most important of all, it truly touched my heart, which hardly any manga from the 90s could do.
The main concept is about an age-gap love. Sarasa, 21 years old, met Rin, a 16 year old cute and smart boy at the airport when they were both on their trip to Paris. She was on vacation and Rin was visiting his divorced dad. It turned out that Rin had a kinda extremely serious air sick so Sarasa let him lean on her.
her kindness, Rin frequently dropped by Sarasa at her hotel. However, there was one time Sarasa was madly drunk and she took off her top in front of the boy. They then had a sweet week full of sex and romance.
Unfortunately, when they got back to Japan, Sarasa realized his love for her only did harm to Rin's future. He was too willing to abandon everything behind to be with her. Therefore, she left without saying a word only to meet him again after 3 years when she was going to marry his older brother.
At first, this story appears to be just typical of an age-gap romance where a girl is mature and charming and the boy is youthful and sweet. However, it did successfully build up a very realistic tragedy of this type of romance. Despite head over heels in love, the lovers had to part their ways because they were not ready to lead a life together.
But, time had proved their love for each other is real. When they met again, they immediately fell in love one more time even though Sarasa had been married to her dear husband.
After all, I like the way Akira - Rin's brother and Sarasa's husband gave an end to this tragedy. He was probably the most generous, tolerant and selfless guy I've ever seen.
Overall, this is truly an excellent but not too melodramatic story. It's funny at times and short enough to enjoy for a night.
Highly recommend, guys!
