Her life is incredibly mundane until she meets Masato, a new patient.

Graphics Rating: 3/5
Plot Rating: 4/5
Opinion: The graphics are a bit above average. The story is original and very interesting and sad. It’s one of those stories you can take for face value, or you can find a deeper meaning. It really makes me think. I think it works perfectly as a oneshot and should definitely be read by anyone.
A warning though. It is really beautiful, but also REALLY sad. You may cry.
Final Rating: 4/5
