First time review writing! Not sure why I decided to do it for a relatively unpopular one-shot, but whatever:
Story: 6/10 [Minor Spoilers]
The premise for this story is good, a couple of good, childhood friends are together a lot and as time went by, the girl developed feelings for the guy and would like to further their relationship through the form of a kiss. Pretty typical shoujo-romance plot.
However, with this one-shot, the author attempted to throw in so much background and different conflicts that the story ended feeling very rushed, jumpy, and difficult to follow. The attempted drama also felt a bit unneeded; especially in regards to the addition of the "fake boyfriend."
Overall, it was cute, but cute can only get you so far.
Not really much to say here, it was solid art, but nothing spectacular.
As someone who reads primarily shoujo related manga, I know characters tend to stick to a set style, and this one-shot is no different. The characters had typical, flat personalities that didn't stick out; a bit harsh for a one-shot, but that's just the way it is.
This was fluffy, and fluffy is good in my eyes; but as I stated previously, this one-shot stuck pretty heavily to the typical shoujo formula and can't be considered anything amazing. I gave it a 7 because I'm a shoujo guy.
This story suffered from a lack of length. If the author were to extend this story from a one-shot into a series with about 2-3 volumes, giving the characters, plot, and backstories more time to be developed, I believe this would have a much better outcome.
