Story 6/10: This is one of those short manga you wish had gotten serialized. Taking place during winter break, the story revolves around two girls whose paths cross unexpectedly, but for the better. I feel like there were so many possible paths that could have been taken with this, so I was disappointed to see it was a single volume of only 6 chapters. Alas, the world is cruel.
Art 7/10: Art doesn't match the cover, but I liked it! It has a sort of scratchy pen-feel that matches the character's personalities well.
Character 6.5/10: Again, it felt as though there was a lot of
potential for character development as both girls are given interesting backstories and personality traits. Shou is a melancholic social recluse who, for some reason in her youth, began to rapidly withdraw into herself and away from friends and family. Chiharu lost her eyesight as a young child and as a result, her family is overly protective to the point of practical imprisonment. I wish I could have given a higher score, but these things are just barely skimmed on the surface.
Enjoyment 8/10: I really enjoyed this, as you can see by the fact that I'm writing a review. There's an Epilogue chapter, so it gives you a little closure, but not quite enough. I would love to see a continuation of this, as it feels like there's a lot of potential.
Overall 7/10: Short, but definitely worth a read.
