Likeable oneshots included.   
Rating: 6.5 / 10.0

As for the main story, I don't really feel like talking much about the romance part, because that one seemed a bit rushed and IMO only in the ending the characters seemd to show some more believeable feelings. But - The other parts, like friendship and facing hardships, whole following a dream, have been expressed in a nice way from the get go. So, all in all you get, what you can expect from the genre and tags.

As for the oneshots, "Powder Snow" and "Sleeping Beauty and the Castle of Garbage", they have been a bit more to my liking. My rating also is bound to them, so even if the main story might not be your cup of tea, then you should at least give the oneshots a try and maybe they can change your mind a bit. At least, if you like Shoujo-Manga and it's characteristics. ^^;;

One of today's refined shoujos

Its one of those shoujos that are trying to rectify the genre by a little more realistic touch of low tones and easy interactions but it does have its shares of cliches-
Spoiler (highlight to view)
a normal girl who obviously falls in love with the best looking silent guy who happens to be at odds with his dad who of course is a rich guy and has difficulty controlling his son AND has a past love and no prizes for guessing whose after who here
However, with all the cliches, it still is a good read and forget manga even though shoujo veterans like me would call it a painfully cliched manga.
