Nanaka loves to paint. So when she enters high school, she gets excited at the prospect of jointing the arts club. However, there's only two members—the mysterious Chihaya and the energetic Kento. They're both good-looking guys, and Chihaya shares Nanaka's love for painting!
I have really high ratings for this manga because I liked it and it was really good +.+
The story was good, it has some unexpected twists around the corner and sweet romance going on in front of you. But I have a feeling that they should have made it a bit longer, because it was too short. They fell in love too early, they parted too early and it ended too early. ">.> Couldn't they just have expanded it a bit? A few more scenes or... "days" should do the trick.
Ah~ =///= Each character was drawn rather beautifully~ That's why the art deserves a 10!
The story was great. Art was awesome. Character was cool.
My main complaint is misinterpretation of the word love. Possibly my own issue though. After my own series of events, I tend to lose interest if love is declared immediately. You have a crush; you are not in love… and I know, oh so many manga’s fall into this category.
Nanaka falls for Chihaya pretty much at first sight. They have similar personalities, they understand each other, and I see the attraction. But literally this manga takes place over like four days tops? And on day two Nanaka is confessing her love. It’s cute and sweet and all
that, but it’s nothing I haven’t I seen before and seen done better none the less.
The ending bothered me as well. It’s a happy ending but only on the short term.
Would I recommend it? Sure why not, it’s only 5 chapters, took me probably 15mins at the most to read. Would I read it again? Nope.
Story: 5 [OK]
Art: 8 [very good]
character: 4 [decent] -literally no development so ehh
enjoyment: 7 [good]
overall: 6 [fair]
I rarely rate nor recommend stuff, but this story deeply affected me. Yes, it is short and the plot is unbelievably rushed yet the ending and the words made something spark within me..
See for yourself, five chapters won't take too much time
It's only five chapters, but the author pulls it off nicely and it will work for some.
For some, their sense of realism may bring them to object to the development of the story; they will think that the behavior/emotions/thoughts of the characters, how they seem to fall in love so quickly (you'll see what I'm referring to when you read), is absurd. But I really don't see this as an issue because it works really well with the character of the protagonist and her love interest: they choose to communicate with art rather than words because their emotions are intense and it's difficult for
them to express themselves.
Sometimes I feel like this too! Maybe that's why I can empathize with the manga, and wholeheartedly agree with the way it's carried out. It actually inspires me a little; I feel like I should approach art a little similarly now. By the way, I'm a high school senior who decided to go into media production and design rather impromptu-ly, having never taken art seriously until I thought rather belatedly about where my true likes lie. :3
Anyway! Irrelevant information aside, I don't feel like the story is weird or hard to accept. If you can empathize with what the characters are feeling, if you're a little like them, then you'll understand that their actions and thoughts are natural and the five chapters drawn are perfect to convey that. They (the chapters) pour out a lot of the feeling of the characters so that the manga really generates that intense emotion and it washes over you. ^A^ You'll feel a little like them and maybe be inspired a little.
And I think you'll understand that even if others don't really get it, the manga-ka actually did a pretty nice job!
But if not.. well, I'm afraid it wasn't a success, the manga wasn't written for you. ^3^ You'll have to read to find out whether it works for you or not.
