Graphics Rating: 3/5
Plot Rating: 3/5
Opinion: I like the art. Detailed but not overt, still mature.
I loved the first story, very sweet and slice of lifey. A story about growth. It really makes you sit and think about your own life and how to pursue you dreams even if it comes at a loss. Kind of seeing both sides of living.
The second story is sci-fi. I thought it was really sweet until it reached the end and I got really confused. It definitely went “TOO DEEP FOR YOU”. I get it, but I thought it was kind of seriously lame.
Third story deals with coping with loss and was very sweet. How do you honour something you cherish? How do you remember things you have lost?
Fourth story another one of my favourites from this title. Very sweet and nothing more to it. It’s very easy to feel the same way as the heroine, and the same feeling when you finally find someone who understands.
Fifth was interesting. Definitely a prototype for Suppli. I totally see her first bf form work in there! It really makes you think about what is important, work or romance.
Sixth was just fucked up and I disliked it. It was a horror but I didn’t feel for the character at all. Again like the second one, I get it… but I still disliked it.
Final Rating: 3/5
