Kanako is a young woman who is running an old book store. One day, a customer comes in who shares her taste in books. He's a teenager named Akio, and he and Kanako quickly find that their taste in books is only the first of many ways that they fit together well. Kanako immediately realizes she wants him, and soon blurts out awkward things, like proposals of marriage and cohabitation. Despite their different ages and their awkwardness, it seems like their relationship has the potential to grow into something beautiful.

Conveniences and clichés are present but they are layered well enough that none of them stands out enough to drag the story in unwanted directions. It took me quite some thinking to come up with a reasoning behind why this manga left an emotional impact within me, nevertheless it’s a work that I can’t help falling in love with.

This manga might have hit home with me because of my personality or because of my want to have someone who'd give me the warmth of companionship. ...
