It really was very touching..I choked a bit there. "Holiday" was incredibly cute, but I wish the ending hadn't been left quite so open. Imagining isn't seeing (and without Ima-sensei's beautiful work, is just meh..)

Sadly, "Pandora's elevator" didn't do anything for me .
Hope to see the rest soon.

That first chapter was so moving. I hate to be one of those sappy girls who says it was so beautiful they cried... but I did. JUST A WEE TEAR THOUGH.
Just a good collection over all.
