On one hand, compared to more recent manga the pace is slightly rushed in some passages, on the other hand you could say it goes refreshingly to the point without dragging the story on and on for volumes to milk all its worth.
The characters are interesting, the 'missed chance and misunderstanding' element that would become very typical and possibly overused in more recent titles here are still fresh and serves an actual plot and characters that pursue their dreams, work their a** off to achieve them, face their personal flaws and overcome them in a realistic way. So, yeah, there is more than enough romance, but the core story is about healthy self-realization and indipendence wink . Bonus points for featuring a non Mary-Sue-ish woman-power character.
Art is very 70's and so are some elements (*smoking* and working were a revolutionary combo in/for Japanese females at the time): personally I love the eyes (less sparkly than the 70's norm, as much as I like old school sparkly eyes too XD) and flowing, strand-detailed hair and looooong but light limbs of Yamato-sensei's style; while I find the other elements either interesting or significant in a historical/sociological sense.
