Mod Note: This review was initially posted for the one-shot, .925, and was subsequently merged into Houseki-iro no Koi.
I like that the title ".925" refers to the sterling silver standard, which has a minimum millesimal fineness of 925. On top of that, the sterling silver refers to the ring that was given to Yui by her 'girlfriend' (of which the name is unknown).
This One Shot is even shorter than most of the standard size One Shots out there, but was still a nice and quick read. Even though it's only 4 pages long, it still contains a little message, I think. Which is that life
doesn't always go the way you want it too. No matter how hard you try, you will encounter hardships along the way. Your dreams might not always come true or the one you love might not love you back. Life is just simply a neverending cycle of falling down and getting back up. And keeping your heart strong is the only thing you can do.
Anyway, this little One Shot gets a 7/10 from me.
