This is a short collection of interrelated stories, all dealing with unrequited love.
Story, 6: I thought the stories wove together nicely, but the stories themselves weren't very strong. There were a few touching moments, but the "climax" at the end of the volume didn't do much for me.
Art, 7: There were some refreshing panels included, and the characters all looked unique. The scenery was nice as well.
Characters, 5: A few characters reappeared in later chapters, and while I appreciate the bold move in leaving them unnamed, it made it even more difficult to distinguish one from the next (in terms of personality; as stated in
"Art", they all looked sufficiently different). I liked several of them, but their personalities all seemed to meld together after a certain point, and their individuality was lost.
Enjoyment, 5: The read itself was relatively enjoyable, but I wasn't blown away by any particular chapter, nor was I really satisfied with the ending.
Overall, 5: CLAMP fans might like this lesser-known work for a quick romance read, but considering the art is done by Okazaki Takeshi (and not the other CLAMP members), they may be disappointed in the stylistic differences.
