Chapter 3   
Rating: 7.5 / 10.0

All the stories are ok, but easily forgettable.
The only one I actually enjoyed and may remember (for a short while at least) was the third chapter. I was quite curious about the whole ghost thing, and I thought the couple were kinda cute, so it held my attention all the way through. (My generous rating of 7.5 is based on this story only. As a collection then it would've been about a 6.)
The first story (the vampire) sounded like it had potential, but I didn't like how it was all about "food" and no real feelings (from Yasuomi's pov). So that was a shame.
If you want something to pass the time then this'll do, but don't expect much.

The art was nice and okay. Though the first chapter's story was a bit weird for a vampire, I guess, it was one of the two chapters I only liked. (The other one was chapter 3...ghost). Over all, it was just okay.

I didn't really enjoy the first story - it was lacking substance i think, it could have been much better - but the following stories made up for it ^^ so i cant complain overall. I also like the humour in this, its gentle but theres enough of it to keep you smiling, it also features an interesting range of characters, some better than others but thats to be expected with short stories thrown together. Overall it wasn't too bad.

The art is nice, and I have absolutely no complaints at all in regards to it. However the first story felt like a rather sorry excuse to arbitrarily pair off a couple of guys for sexy time. Maybe the later stories were better but it put me off enough that I didn't go checking... My advise: Read the first story last or better yet, not at all.

I like more the 3 chapter earlier than the 3 last chapter. Well maybe 1st chapter pretty ridiculous,he..he.. what kind of vampire can't drink the blood and faint if see blood.. but it's funny. 2nd chp there's scene which make me tickled is when sakakibara looking for his glasses while it upon his head...he.he.. and i like more 3rd chp bcause it make me little curious. Overall the art was good and the devoloping of story was standard.
