For the past six years, Aki and a certain boy have barely exchanged any words. As they pass each other to head to their respective schools every day, their communication has consisted mainly of the nostril-flaring, eye-bulging, and mouth-contorting looks that they exchange. One morning however, this daily ritual is broken when the boy does not respond with a funny face of his own.

It’s a decent one short for it’s length. It doesn’t have much of a full story to tell, and seems like more of a beginning of a story.

Story 5/10:
It feels like when it finally gets to something interesting is where the one shot finished. If it was more DETAILED with a few more pages adding more emphasis to everything it would have been more of an interesting read.

Art 6/10 :

Character 8/10:
Even though it's a one shot, if it CONTINUED I think ...
