Quite a nice little manga. About a so-called "Private Actress" that take on real-life acting roles such as fake girlfriends or pretend daughter. There are some overlapping storytelling between chapters but for the most part, each and every chapter deals with a separate case. The first for instance deals with a man with a short time left to live and also who had a daughter who was killed years earlier although he hasn't been able to accept this. Someone close to him hires our main character to play the "found alive" daughter in hopes of giving him some closing happiness.
As each chapter is quite different
there is a lot of creativity which I think shows really well early on which for me was the most enjoyable chapters. I also like that there is hardly any focus on explicit sexual roles which I thought the story may deal with at first; a young female private actress: seems like that may be a part of it.
Even though I enjoyed most chapters there were a few here and there, especially later on in the story which felt a bit over the top. A few hints or introduces supernatural elements which felt like an odd inclusion as the setting is not really supernatural.
Quite enjoyable and I thought it stood out quite well from other mangas I've read.
