Out of all of this Author's work, which I've read maybe only a few, this one has to be the most subversive. Especially the ending which was refreshing change compared to many of the other mangas that have some of the same cliches. The manga handles some tropes which can be tedious in very mature manner, some are completely unnecessary but the ones she does right are really good.
