Strange Next To Normal   
Rating: 7.8 / 10.0

First story: This is a somewhat mature story in the sense that it deals with people that are how most people are or are portrayed. She had a boyfriend before the story begins, they party ect. The main character is also pretty mature in a self sufficient way. She doesn't really have any major personalities flaws and can be pretty competent. The situation is pretty strange for how normal the people are, and it's only stranger with some later revelations. I saw most of it coming but the way it was positioned wasn't worst(or maybe it was) but it was stranger.

In that revelation though, I think there was a miss opportunity. fact is sometimes people do something so wrong or deceptive in a way that it creates a rift or an objection that lingers in how you interact with them(sometimes only sporadically coming up). I felt that sort of thing should have happen between her and her mom. Instead it's all just glanced over, basically forgotten and forgiven and not really explored.

The art overall is nice. I don't know whether I prefer this style but it's nice to see a nice big figure, and more space given to characters. I though the design on the girl was attractive with the curly hair.

This doesn't easily fall into a categorization. It isn't a sweet romance and it doesn't have the substance of a mature one shot. It's somewhere in between. Basically if the premise interests you, don't expect it to try to feed whatever it is you expect from other shoujo stories that might do this. And if you like one shots, don't expect it to be a dark, cynical story about how everyone was wrong, persecuted or selfish ect.

Second Story: It's about a girl going through puberty and growing out of her awkward stage. Her friend she hasn't heard of in a while(who goes to a different school) has beaten her out of it, and gotten herself a boyfriend. Her friends boyfriend goes to the same school as she does, and her friend asks her to make sure he doesn't cheat. Her friends possessive nature and the boyfriends passive nature aren't gelling well, and as their relationship struggles the girl finds herself attracted to her friend's boyfriend.

This is a mix of styles, it has some elements like the first but it also has more typical shoujo elements, especially with the heroine. It's less complicated and strange while still being grounded, and the characters being somewhat more normal for adolescents. The characters are younger than the people in the first story, so its more of a first love and growing up story. One complaint is the way the guy self destructs his relationship isn't uncommon but we don't see him ever really regretting it. It is well done and it's easier and shorter than the first. So it's easier to recommend over the first since It's an easier concept to take.

Didn't like the first story

The first story in the manga was definately not my cup of tea. The guy didn't seem like he loved her at all - it was more like he didn't want to be alone - and I wonder whether she was really in love with him? She seemed really lonely and lost, and it was almost like fulfilling a fantasy instead of actually being in love with him as a person and wanting a relationship.

Still, I must admit that I've never read a Step-dad/daughter manga that I actually enjoyed. Something about lusting after a father figure makes me really uncomfortable, and I usually find myself thinking: "What's wrong with her? She has a perfectly good guy who loves her (usually, anyway) and she decides to run after some man her mother was married to(dated, etc.)?!" Not that I think it's wrong or anything; it just feels so weird to me.

The second story was very cute, though. Both stories were so utterly cliche, cliche to a T.

goofy and cute

it is a good short read. the art is very suitable for the type of humour it trying to portray. there is no excessive melodrama or gooey saccharine love. however there is enough depth in their emotions and the personalities are believable and likable. some people might feel squicky for the first story because of step-dad/step-daughter love, but it is handled very appropriately.

Odd but Good   
Rating: 7.9 / 10.0

Sometimes I don't have a lot of reasons for liking something. I just do. This is one of those cases, particularly. The premise is odd, there's a lot of goofiness, but through it all I love the characters. Maybe I like how realistic the characters are despite the seeming unrealism of the story. Maybe I liked that we got a good look into the protagonists' heads.
I don't know, but if someone asks me for a short, good story, I'll recommend this one.
