Another great work from the mangaka. I feel like she has a real talent for one-shots/short stories, especially her ability to deliver such condensed and crisp materials in that relatively short amount of space. And the art is pretty as usual, it's playful and cheeky when the story needs to be light and subtle and soothing when it comes to substance. I really do like this.

Btw, this is already the 3rd work I've read from the mangaka that features boys stealing kisses in their significant others' sleep lol. I wonder if she has a thing for 'secret' sleep attacks haha.

I love this story. It's short but sweet; the relationship is realistically and beautifully portrayed. Yet, because it's so good, I can't help but want to read more than two chapters of it ;___;

I think it's really well done and she could convey their feeling even without graphic scenes or even a closed ending, but it's pretty clear what happens. I just felt...the need to read the rest, you know? Like it was unfinished...and that's exactly because of the lack of "I love you" and even kisses (I don't care much about sex)
Oh, but I thought it was really beautiful and I almost cried in several parts.

Very good!

One of my favourite short stories. This artist really knows how to get an idea across. She didn't need sex, or an 'I love you' or even very many words to convey the feelings between the two characters, and that is a job well done.

Besides, I really love this art style.

This short story is drawn and told in such a wonderful way.
There are so many moments were I had to stop and just stare at certain panels because they were just that beautiful. I remember being touched to the point of having tears in my eyes. I hope I'm not the only one. lol

Anywho, I just wish there was more...*sigh*

The art wasn't particularly to my taste but otherwise, like pearlesque said, it's almost perfect, I really loved the way the author portrayed the disillusion of the boys, very sweet.

It was one of the best shounen-ai i have ever read.It was so sweet, real and beautiful.
Anyway, I think this mangaka likes to portray the beginning of relationships and she knows how.
