I've started reading this manga recently and found out there's no review for it... so I decided to write one to help others decide whether it's a good read or not. That's my first try, so don't be too harsh ^_~
In the beginning of the story we meet our hero, Shibata, who's got some weird ability. Whenever it rains, he sees living things, so he is considered to be a weirdo among his classmates and in the school in general. This ability doesn't help, moreover, it complicates Shibata's life so much that he wishes it never happened to him. And here comes a girl, who's got a similar ability! Of course, this changes Shibata's lonely life immediately, we get to know more about their abilities and watch how their relationship develops.
Seems boring? Believe me, it's not that bad, the heroine is cute and you feel kind of sympathetic with her, the main character isn't bad too, and even though lots of things happening appear predictable, it's a fair read. The art is great, the pace of the story is satisfying, the main duo is sweet, the story itself is a little different from all supernatural stories I've read so far.
What I didn't like was the rain factor, seems a bit awkward to me. And it surely rains a lot in the beginning of the story... even though it was a rain season, still, looks too convenient. Also, the characters aren't really deep, especially the second duo, who are supposed to be as important as the main couple. Well, that might change in the second half of the story... One more thing - it looks like the author messed up their ages a little, since all of the main characters are said to be in junior school but they behavior is more suitable for high schoolers. Shibata lives alone, the second duo are having sex almost every scene they are in within parents' reach, all of them go the hot springs and book rooms without any problems. Seems weird to me, but maybe I'm just an old hag ^_^
To sum it up, the manga is definitely interesting, but it doesn't captivate you fully. It's a good read, but don't expect anything special, just enjoy the art and learn a little more about twins.read more
