Summary: Sakurai Ichiko is a 29-year-old woman whose head contains council members (each with differing personalities) that dictate her every thought and decision. While waiting at the train station one day, she encounters Saotome, a man whom she met and made short conversation with at a drinking party with friends. Although she’s interested in him, being a much a older woman, Ichiko hesitates over whether or not she should approach him, causing a wave of uproar between her intracranial council members.

Plot Rating: 5/5
Opinion: I just love Setona Mizuhiro so much. -Cries- The art is very unique but definitely the usual for this author. Definitely a more grown up feel rather then the flowers everywhere shoujo. But then again it is Josei.
I loved this. It had me howling with laughter. I think I’m fairly biased but if you have social anxiety this is exactly what it feels like. It feels like there is a council in your brain taking facts, over analyzing them, and most of the time make you feel bad for your decisions. It also makes you awkward as hell.
The whole situation is very original. I’ve never heard of this kind of idea but Setona does these stories so well. Definitely out there, but so amazing.
Final Rating: 5/5
