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.

I loved everything about this from start to finish. The characters are perfect. The way in which they mould as one is beautiful. I'm not usually into things like this but it has converted me toward romance manga heavily.

There has never been a time where I have wanted a manga to continue so badly. The way in which the story progresses is done perfectly. It would have been nice for it to be a little longer but that's just because I enjoyed it so much. I love the way in which they use quotes from other writing and how it shines such a positive ...
