Graphics Rating: 4/5
Plot Rating: 4/5
Opinion: Graphics are just perfect. Amazing. Love it. End of that.
The story is short (1 volume) but it just WORKS despite taking on challenging topics like homosexuality and love between cousins. You can really feel how the main character feels, locked in an unrequited love with her cousin. And then her feelings with her new best friend. It felt so real and not cliched at all.
Put this at the top of your “MUST READ” (Thats right, all in caps) list. :)
Final Rating: 4/5
Extra: From the creator of Strobe Edge! How did I not figure that out on my own?!
