Preliminary (3/4 eps)
I revere you, oh founding mother of shoujo & shounen-ai. Everyone should read at least one of her stories. If I am not mistaken, this is one of two bodies of work licensed in America. What I find interesting about this particular volume is that she incorporates so much scientific details in the dialogue. Her story telling always contains a lot of emotion. These three short stories really draw you in and tug at your heart strings. I highly recommend this to those who are interested to see how shounen-ai evolved into a genre.
