Description
An anthology of ten short stories, all done in the Nouvelle Manga style. Each story stands alone, the only things linking them all being the low-key slice-of-life settings and the fact that they all have a female protagonist including a young child facing the break-up of her family and seperation from her friends; a lonely divorcee managing a bar; an elderly art dealer in the process of retiring; a mistress and her lover rehearsing their mutual suicide; an adulterous wife; a teenage girl on the day of her graduation from high school and the author herself (appearing in a couple of autobiographical pieces).

this is so heartbreakingly underrated...why isnt it more popular? sad its excellent, the art was beautiful and the stories were realistic, they had a big variety of characters so you're bound to be able to relate to atleast one of them.
but let me warn you that some of these stories don't really have a conclusion...no scratch that, what i meant to say is, you're not spoon fed the ending but there are enough hints to what will happen next....
what i really liked about this manga is the way all these stories ended...e.g. if the girl got the guy it doesnt give you the "and they lived happily ever after, the end" ending, these stories were devoid of a big finales because isnt that the way it is in real life? just because the girl got the guy doesnt instantly make her life better or worse, and it doesnt guarantee that all her problems would come to an end or disappear to thin air.
anyway, read this. i highly recommend it.
