Not good.

From the first story to the last, this is not interesting, shallow and boring.
I was hoping at least one or two stories would be good but none of them were, really.
If they were given more time, depth and character development, they'd have potential but as oneshots they left me feeling bored.
If you want something very brainless with some cute moments but nothing that you will remember for long, give it a shot, especially if you like her art.
Otherwise, this is a waste of time.

The stories were decent, but not very interesting. Formulaic plots, lack of sex scenes, lack of real tension made them blur into a bland whole and failed to capture my interest. The mangaka has way better works out there.

This was a decent collection of oneshots, though nothing groundbreaking. I would categorize them as *almost* yaoi. There is definitely affection, but it never *quite* gets to anything naked until the last story(very close though). The storylines come off as pretty yaoi-ish to me, like they exist with little reason other than to get them naked together. Overall, worth reading, but don't expect anything too moving.

It was good set of oneshots and such. It seemed to short, I would have love it more if some of the stories could have been expanded a little. Over all it was great read I enjoyed it! ^^

I really enjoy reading all the stories but it was too short and I'm dissatisfied with the ending. I think the stories have a lot of potential and it would be great if it gone longer. Overall still a great collection.
