To say the truth, I do not really remember why I haven’t read this story the first time I was reading Yoshi’s works. As always the story explores the human’s deepest desires and emotions. You should be prepared to face the reality in its harshest and cruelest form available out there. In these four chapters, the author explores death and illness without my second thought. And if you are not ready to have your sanity questioned numerous times just do not take up this work. It might really break you.
The story is 4 chapters long and you’ll think how can someone actually encompass anything in
such a short time? You have Yoshi here! An author that shows the ugliness of human nature without any second thought! Is it ugly? Yes, but it is also fascinating, how it makes you wonder if it might have been you in the place of protagonist! So, what’s the story about? Imagine a teenager a very pretty and popular with boys teenager, who lives her life, however, she seems fit: she parties, drinks, smokes, and fools around. But everything changes when one day she faints and is told that she has breast cancer. Yes, that’s how the story starts. What's our heroine going to do? Remember, I described her pretty well. Yes, the denial doesn’t even cover it!
Go through a journey with Rina to find herself and look at the word friendship. Yes, at the very end this story is not about cancer or life and death matter, though it sure is, but it’s about real friendship. How well do you know your friends? Or an even better question: are you sure they are your friends? Explore the tragic life or Rina and Maki, and once you do, ask yourself what would you have done? I hope you’ll find some time to read this fantastic story. Do not take it lightly as it has some issues worth reading carefully!
