Description
1) What's your name?

Shinta Yamada, a part-time convenience store worker, has just been dumped, unceremoniously, by his girlfriend. The reason? She’s fallen in love with someone else! Left to nurse his broken heart alone at work, Shinta finds himself falling head over heels for a customer at first sight. Unfortunately, the siren who’s finally caught his attention is a man, and likely one he’ll never see again. But fate is a terrible mistress and Yamada just might be meeting up with his male temptress in the near future...

2) Fifteen
Cute junior-high senior Nishihara meets highschooler Satoshi while touring a highschool. But... Satoshi mistakes him for a girl?!

3) The lingering scent of a rainbow
A touching story about Masashi Furuya, a junior-high Japanese teacher, and Ryu Yoneguni, his student. Ryu's amazing mind moves forward, wasted in the small countryside, while Furuya is lost in his colors, and left with the promise of sunflowers.

4-5) Milk & Sugar
From Vices and Devices:
A special focusing on childhood friends Sho and Taichi. Taichi always thought they would stay together forever, until Sho decides to up and move away without telling him about it. They run into each other again when Taichi's in university and they end up working at the same diner. This time, Taichi is determined to make it work out. Even if Sho's bisexual. Moral of the story: alcohol can only make things better.

6) Waiting for winter
Tetsuji Nakamura. Freelance photographer, 20 years experience.
Yoichi, a supernaturally beautiful man, picked up 2 years ago by Nakamura, now his exclusive model.

i'd been plowing through some mediocre titles lately and this has been a nice break in the norm ^^ really cute series of oneshots with a great slice-of-lifey feel and likeable characters!

i didn't care for the second story really, but i loved the first one and the childhood friends one. childhood friends always get me D: the other two stories feel a tad incomplete, but are still lovely and feel poetic and lyrical with their vague endings. like capturing a photo in a complex scene that only tells part of the story ;D anyways, good job sensei, i'll look into her other works!

The love interest's dog had me clutching my sides from laughing so much--this mangaka is fantastic! I'm so glad that I clicked on this. The stories are funny because the characters themselves are genuinely funny and cute and very slice of life-y.
If you're looking for serious character development, thou shalt look elsewhere! (But that's only because these are one-shots which--obvi--do not really allow for that) But these stories are well done and very REAL feeling.
I personally am a big fan of the Junko-esque style of art used.
I recommend this if you want cute funny one-shots that aren't super heavy on the sexin'

I actually liked this, my favorite stories was Fifteen and Milk and Sugar. The art reminded me a bit of Ootsuki Miu, but it certanly had it´s own charm to it too.
Some of the stories could´ve been developt more instead of making more unnecassary stories like the one about the sensei or the Model.

I´m definitly looking forward to see more by this author, and this collection of stories is highly recommended.

I agree with most of the other posts. This was a really nice collection of stories. I especially liked the first one (including the spinn-off) and the main story. One couldn't really consider them deep stories, but they were very entertaining.

Light, fluffy, cute.

The dog in the first chapter was adorable. I liked the childhood friends one, it was passionate and cute.The sensei one, meh. And finnally the one about the model i felt held the deepest feelings and was rather...interesting.

the stories weere nice, specially the second one was my fav, it made my heart ache a little at the end. The art reminded me a little of Kyuugou.
I wish and hope to read more works of this Mangaka, excellent, i just wish there was more, is the only thing.

I found this manga while searching up other works by the same mangaka. These short stories are permanently stamped onto my mind, I only regret not having find this sooner. The humor in some of these short stories are wonderfully integrated into the storyline without making it seem ridiculously out of place. The third story, which is the second most memorable one for me, seemed almost as if it was a song- and the ending is just great. If you haven't done so already, I'd definitely recommend this. Now, I can't read other mangas without comparing it to this one.

...but without crossing the fine line into saccharine. The five stories vary a bit in quality. The eponymous chapters featuring Sho and Taichi were my favorites. Taichi especially makes some really hilarious faces, and the characters engage in bantering dialogue that keeps the story light and funny. It's an angst free, fresh take on childhood friends in love.

I was expecting yaoi or at least shounen ai when I read the Waiting for Winter and The Lingering Scent of a Rainbow chapters, so I was a little let down at first. They're the mildest shounen ai ever, but the completely unique stories captured me in the end.

Overall, the art quality is high throughout (as expected from this mangaka), and the stories are light, happy, and funny. If that's your thing, you've really gotta read Sugar Milk.

WOW Never did i expect to like this at all, It's even on my On Hold list. The stories have soo much potential that i want more!!! My favorite story was the childhood friends with unrequited love, this has been done for a while now yet I don't feel i read it before. I really hope the mangaka would make a sequels for these stories. I really recommend it!!
