Description
1-2) Like a First Love
Salesman Kouno is running out of time! He has three days to sell one million yen worth of safes or he's fired, but Kouno is a horrible salesman, and only goes to houses with inviting architecture. Meeting the weird architect Itou is his only chance to make quota, but Itou has other things on his mind...

3-4) Silencing a Sigh with the Sound of Rainfall
On his way to work, Takano meets a stranger who returns an umbrella to him he apparently lent out a long time ago. But when he meets said person again for a job interview, he behaves extremely cold towards Takano - who still tries to befriend him.

5) Everything, for You
At first working for the strict Kaneko was difficult for Kiyose, but he's gotten used to his boss' gruff ways and has even fallen in love with him. The praise (and head pats) Kiyose receives for his hard work have him pushing himself to the limit, but suddenly Kaneko becomes distant. Did Kaneko discover his feelings, or is there another reason for the sudden gulf between them?

yukimura's works haven't really left any lasting impression on me, this work included. cute and fluffy story, no more, no less. however, the ukes in these stories are the most moe i've seen in her works so far. super blushing king in the second story stole my heart ;_;

Another one of your typical yaoi manga. The stories are cute and all, but it's not very interesting. There's no excitement and it's like you can predict what's gonna happen next. Some of the stories is just...well, touching I guess.

more depth than oitekebori blues, but still too rushed -- i just can't get into it if the characters profess a deep and abiding love for each other out of the blue; ok, so in some cases one of them has loved the other unrequitedly for years. but the other was clueless, yet once confessed to, *BOOM* in love he falls. the first story is my least favourite, because it rings the least true. but there are little details here that i like overall, and a cute sense of humour, and the art is nice, so it's still above average.

I love this mangaka. Her characters are always amusing because they're usually weird, awkward people who stumbles around trying to find love. They bring a smile to my face with their lovable, dorky demeanor.
You get all that here.

What I don't like is the sudden love confession that just pops out of nowhere. The two (from the first story) barely knew each other, barely spoke, but suddenly...they're in love? How? What is there to love? There wasn't any chemistry that I could see! It felt shallow, weak, and unbelievable. I felt cheated.

I know this manga is made up of short, two-chapters stories, so I guess the relationship didn't really get a chance to fully develop. Then again, I've read oneshot mangas that's left me more satisfied and fulfilled than this. I think the mangaka should stick to writing the longer one-volume stories, which are usually very good and well-written. This one?...it's a miss.

Bottom line, pass this one and try one of Yukimura's longer stories instead.

It doesn't say it here, but there are actually three different stories, all unrelated. I actually enjoyed the second two (ch. 3-4 and ch. 5) more than the main story in ch. 1-2, though all are kind of cute.

The manga is worth a go. It's entertaining, maybe something to keep for a rainy day. At the same time it's not something I have a huge fangasm for.
