I liked the art quite a bit, loved the "light" flowing and airy lines and even the nude female girls but the writing was rather random and poor. It wasn't creative enough to be experimental or well-written enough to actually interest me. More than that, even if the selections were nothing but a bunch of scenes, I didn't find most of the themes, characters, etc. to be memorable or endearing.

Some of the stories had some depth of creativity but too bad the endings were quite poor and much of the writing was quite haphazard. In the end, the art couldn't really save the writing.
