Graphics Rating: 5/5
Plot Rating: 4/5
Opinion: I still love this mangaka’s drawings more then anyone. They are just so detailed and lovely. So… attractive. A brilliant juxtaposition on her typically serious and realistic plot lines.
All of these stories take what you know about shoujo manga and just throws it up in the air and laughs. It even makes you believe in the stereotypes and then says: Haha kidding! I loved every single story. Especially the childhood friends one. It was so realistic. Never seen a story quite like that. Very layered and wonderful.
READ THIS. It’s one freaking volume for crying out loud! ;)
Final Rating: 5/5
