This short manga is based on the novel; Sugar Candy Bullets Canít Pierce Anything.
The plot follows two girls and their summer-time adventures in a rural area.

Nagisa Yamada is a bored teenager who finds everyday life extremely unappealing - thus she plans on joining a Military School as soon as possible.

A strange new student named Umino Mokuzu (who claims to be a mermaid) transfers into Nagisa's school and, much to our heroine's bewilderment, soon begins to follow her around incessantly.
Initially, an annoyed and discomfited Nagisa strives to avoid any encounters with Mokuzu. But she soon begins to comprehend the pain and sadness concealed beneath this strange girl's cheerful and carefree demeanour...

Nagisa is Moe, in the Truest Sense

I'm editing this title for Tranquil Spring, and I have to say, I agree with PoshSam. There's so much about this title that puts it above and beyond most other stories. And I have to admit, every time I get a final script for a new chapter, I almost dread what's to come. So many aspects of this story feel so real, and so much of it hints at tragedy that editing new chapters is actually somewhat difficult, just because I'm afraid of what's to come.

the story is original and every now and then you get that cold chill running down your spine
I know it's a novel adaptation i didn't read the original but the mangaka art adds a lot to this exceptional story to make even more awesome

I purchased both volumes today after reading the first few chapters online. I loved the story, loved the art, loved the characters, everything! And it even all makes sense, I was expecting things to be left more ... open.

BUT. Big But, the volumes I purchased annoy me. I wish the people translating and editing this manga would care at least as much for their work as the fans whose scanlations are - to put it simply - superb. Those fans do it for FREE. The other guys get money from it, but they don't even care enough about this wonderful manga to change the font which extremely kills the atmosphere in more than only one part. I've seen enough Raws to know that the fonts change there as well, so why not in my volumes? I really hope the English edition is better.

But it's by no far a reason to give fewer points, fact is, I enjoyed this manga a lot and I'm also happy I purchased them (I can only repeat, the art work is stunning), I can only recommend the read. It's sweet, dark, thrilling, special, also very psychological and you can't put it down when you've begun it. You just want to know more, you just want to know the whole story, not just the end!

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I don't think either the original author of the novel, nor the mangaka who adapted the story had the storytelling chops to tell this dark story. The thematic distinction between sugar candy bullets and real bullets was never really explored well. Mokuzu's mentality doesn't really go much beyond having Stockholm syndrome. The male childhood friend's incident is really bizarre and not well thought out. The teacher suddenly turns out to be an important character. And there are simply too many convenient pop psych cliches to justify story elements. Overall the story wasn't cohesive enough and feels rather thrown together. Which is a damn shame because I really liked the premise. It's not often that there's a female character who wants to join the military befriending delusional abused classmate.

At first glance it seems to be a brainless love-love type manga, but itís actually a dark and suspenseful thriller. With twisted minds, deformities of love, truth and lies, deception and violence
It tells the story of two 13-year-old junior girls struggle to live, the manga delievers the sense of powerlessness and despair. Read it if you like mystery!

This manga's story is so superb and with such a psychological depth and melanholic feeling to it, like you will only find in Japanese literature. Purchased both volumes as well.
Only a short while before that, I read "Lying Mii-kun and Broken Maa-chan" which is very similar in many ways and just as good.
I wish I could find the books those are based on and more mangas like that.
