Graphics Rating: 5/5
Plot Rating: 5/5
Opinion: Gorgeous, round, life like, and sketchy. Very original meaning some people may not like it but I find it just gorgeous! Awesome poses and moments. AH!
This story is amazing. You can feel this slow rise heading off into an AWESOME sunset. It’s starting off with her young and since it is going from 9+ volumes I’m gonna take a stab in the dark that the story may follow the heroine into maturity. It is just too beautiful. So sincere and pure and yet not annoying. That little girl is who we all were and that boy was all the boys we knew at that age. It is such an amazing read. I’m expecting great things from the rest of this series.
Read this story and you will never regret it. A must read for any shoujo/josei fan.
Final Rating: 5/5
