tl;dr -- An endearing and funny short story with realistically portrayed adults (a rarity in the BL genre).
Story - 9/10
Nothing mind-blowing in terms of plot, but the relatively simple storyline is executed exceedingly well. No unnecessary melodrama or beating around the bush, and everything flows at a good pace. Wraps up wonderfully, especially when you consider how there are only six chapters.
Art - 9/10
The scratchy style of Ichikawa Kei might not be the most objectively beautiful, but it goes perfectly with her stories and I personally find it very endearing. Definitely memorable and instantly recognizable, too. And if you don't like it, it's
not something jarring enough to actually detract from the story. There are no men with spidery limbs and doritos for torsos, which is always a plus by my measures.
Character - 9/10
At this point in my review, I think my standards have just been severely lowered by the vast majority of BL, and that anything moderately okay will seem like a jewel in comparison. However, I still think the characters in this series are very well-developed and act like reasonable adults. Given the one-volume constraint, this is pretty amazing!
Enjoyment - 10/10
I've reread this series a bunch of times. Even if it isn't perfect, I love it, and there aren't many BL series that are this well-done.
