A good tear jerker story

One of finest tear jerker oneshot(s) for me, the 3rd story - Empty Boy is really good. The story is simple but giving so many feels especially about the ending (and the dog).
*damn these ninjas cutting onions..

This collection of oneshots is amazing. I love Fujitsuka Yuki's art style - it's both beautiful and expressive. The 4 oneshots vary widely in theme, although all the stories are somewhat sad.
Some of these oneshots would seem to work well as longer series, so I'm somewhat disappointed that they didn't get turned into series. Still, all 4 oneshots have proper conclusions - these are masterful short stories, all around.
Highly recommended! (Especially for people who don't usually like shoujo mangas - these stories lack almost all of the clichés, love triangles etc. that make many shoujo mangas so aggravatingly annoying.)

This collection of oneshots is so good! Each is very original and well executed, I really liked them all!
The first two have to deal more with regular life while the last two have more to deal with supernatural type things. Both types were well done and I enjoyed them all immensely!

9/10 - Was great

I really love this collection of oneshots.
It's not your typical shoujo romance manga..
All the stories have such a sad feel to it and somewhat bittersweet ending. Give it a try~

All of the one-shots are very well-done, with great art, good pacing, and a decent amount of originality. smile My favourite would be the 4th one-short, Pinocchio Dreams--it's one of the best one-shots I've ever read.
