From Antebellum Scanlations:

At the start of high school, Takae fell in love with Araki. However, Araki just happens to be indifferent to love. Against her better judgement, she begins dating someone else, but that relationship turned out to be a big mistake...What will become of Takae's love!?

From JShoujo Scans
Includes an extra story:
"Yori-chan has a Love That'll Never be Requited"
(Sequel to "Like Snow Falling on Harbor" from A Rose-Colored Tomorrow)

It's been over five years since Yori watched the car that his best friend and Kurita, the girl he was in love with, were riding crash into another car, leaving Kurita in a coma that she hasn't come out of since. His best friend, who had also been in love with Kurita then, has already moved on and found himself a new girlfriend.

For Yori though, time stopped that horrific day many years ago. Can his distant cousin, a spunky teenage girl who harbors a huge crush towards him, make him realize that it's time to let go?

One of my favourites!

The first story is a two parter (so the second chapter is a follow on) and my favourite, I'm a sucker for unrequited love and this one is very realistic as it shows the traps many people fall into, dating some one to forget an old love and dealing with being friend zoned. The second chapter is what makes the story beautiful as it shifts perspective to the male lead and his story mirrors his female counter part, his is also a bit more grown up as you see him mature as a person and start to realize what he wants and how he wants to be treated. The icing on top is his slow realization about who he actually is in love with. The ending is sweet I'd have liked a "getting together" chapter to finish it off but it was satisfying to some degree. Like many when I first read this the only chapter released was the first half and the one shot that comes after this story so I was left distraught so make sure you pick up the second half.

I only read the first story, and now I feel sick. It was a pretty realistc portrayal to when it comes to unrequinted love. I can't explain without giving it a way....but if you like tragedies, you will like this. It reads very smoothly, and pretty well written as well.

Very slice-of-life

Which is kind of the point, since that's what it IS. But it's a sad fact that (for me) slices-of-life always feel somewhat unsatisfying, and I can never rate them as high as I'd like to because of the lack of closure. -sigh-

Endearingly cute love stories

Story 1 was pretty hilarious. A cute story of high school classmates. This story became an instant fav in my list of shoujo manga.
Story 2 was sweet and a bit cute one. There's also a certain amount of melancholic atmosphere added. I wish this was explored longer.
Not only that, I want stories like these - not over the top romance but it's there, in somewhat flavored realism.
Overall this manga is enjoyably sweet love stories of two different couples. The art is good and the guys are attractive that I caught myself go jelly at times. Hehehe. Oh it's 1:03AM now. Recommended for those who look for sweet love stories!
