Feel a bit addicted to manga with light drawings, like sketches, after reading Bus Hashiru <=It's Awesome~ ^@^
This 2 people are unbelievably amusing to watch, huhuh their daily lives to me, are so interesting...oh man that kiss on the cheek was so cuuute~ Hehe, sometimes people with similar traits are very compatible, oh my, i wish the last scene was the guy and the girl hugging each other, that'll be nice ^_^

made the girl look like some demon child. and in a way, she's that scary, because she is a very dedicated stalker. but even if they have such morally questionable hobbies, they are interesting and normal characters, and they really deserve each other.

This is one of the better short stories I have ever read. Unique characters that through the course of the story change ever so slightly. I like the premise, I like the progression of the plot even more.

The art is decent. More unique than most other typical styles, but still more than adequate. The character designs are pretty typical, but fit the character description.

While not laugh out funny, this manga has many moments where you smile to yourself and maybe chuckle a little at the hilarious reactions from certain characters. Overall, a very nice light-reading series.

I love this Manga beyond words. Seriously, it's a freakin' weird concept and I was hesitant to pick it up but I would totally defend how great the story is to anyone that challenges it. Great stuff, must read if you're interested in non traditional characters and story lines.

This manga became a favorite of mine from the first chapter. I already love Unita's way of drawing hands and facial expressions (omg, the hands are amazing - actually, the entire style is just fantastic), so I was predisposed to enjoy this book if only because of the art. But the story!

Wow, the story is crafted really well. It's all about "looking through the gaps" or "looking through a lens", as shown through the two main characters, Heisaku (who watches his neighbor Fumio through the gap in her curtain, and likes to look through spaces or gaps in other things as well) and Fumio (who does photography, and mostly watches Heisaku through her camera lens from her room). So not only do we get the story about how they move from using these barriers to watch each other to actually entering each other's spaces, but these barriers and gaps appear everywhere. It's a visual motif, with the favorite meeting places having lots of vertical bars or windows, and it's a story motif as well. The reader is never able to fully know anything about any character, even the primary ones - what we do learn is like bits and pieces from a slide projector. Of course as the pov character, more is known about Heisaku than anyone else, but it's a slice-of-life story that doesn't give us a lot of background information, except what comes out in the dialogue. It's very tightly constructed, the story. As a result, even when we learn big information about a character, we're always left with the feeling that there's more to the story and what we've seen isn't as it seems at all.

The length of the story and the way it wraps up with a very ambiguous ending also matches that motif of "watching through the gaps". It's slice of life, so of course there's a feeling like that, but the shortness and abruptness amplifies the feeling. It's like when you're on a train and have just left one tunnel and are about to enter another - suddenly you see this panorama of cityscape or landscape or whatever out the windows, vibrant and expansive, and then just as suddenly you're thrust into the next tunnel without getting a really full view of what you'd past, and no longer able to go back to fill in the gaps that you missed. We don't know much, if anything, about Heisaku or his friends or Fumio before the story begins, and there are no signs at all about what happens after the story ends. We've seen this one instant, this period of several weeks, and that's it. But there doesn't need to be any more - even if the ending is ambiguous about what happens to the characters (is it a metaphor? is it literal?), the story that was meant to be told has been done and there's no more to say about it. Besides which, the ambiguity only emphasizes the "through the gaps" thing.


I guess it's probably clear that I love this manga. It's a slice-of-life character study, not really a romance at all, and has not only beautiful art but a tightly crafted story. It's one of my top recommendations for people looking for something that rises above the ordinary.

This manga is NOT meant to be a romance manga, it's the tale of 2 voyeurs who become obsessed with each other, really. Amazing art, fleshed out characters, unique and interesting story, funny dialogue. Overall it was amazing.

The manga gets tons of flak for a few twists later on in the series, but the reason for that is because people want it to turn into a full blown romance manga, it seems.

they arent voyeurs sad they are simply secret admirers. voyeurs are happiest when watching from afar, secret admirers watch from afar at first but would be happiest together.

Liked it from the first chapter, just couldn't help it. The characters are great, unique, and have their own perspective in the story which makes it more interesting. Truly, one of the most entertaining manga I had read lately.
