First off, I'm glad there was no non-consensual or dubiously consensual sex in this manga! In the other works I've read by this mangaka, there were at least some air of that.

Second, I actually like both stories overall. A bit melodramatic but okay nonetheless. Art was a bit dodgy at some points and pretty at others.

However, I wish the first story took a slightly different angle and focused on a couple dealing with the abandonment issues of the adopted child. It would have been pretty refreshing to see that. The father figure and son combination has been overdone in this genre, and frankly I don't care for it.

The second story was a bit more twisted up then it needed to be in the first chapter but the following ones cleared it up. I liked how the different perspectives were shown. I wish Akira's was shown as well. However, everything did not gel together very smoothly. It needed some polishing.

I don't know where to start. I read "Kyou Anata ni Wakare o Tsugemasu" and "Ashita Kimi ni Ai wo Sasayaku" some years ago, and I cried like a baby. Still today I feel anxious when I remember the story, or more exactly the feelings I had when I read it. The first time I read the second part I though I understood it, but I didn't. The second and third times I read it (because I could not believe that it was that fr**king sad), I almost completely understood the story, which left me feeling less depressed. And now, when I read it nearly three years later, I believe I fully comprehended Mei's convoluted thought process, and I'm happy with what I got. I'm satisfied with the final resolution of the story, even if it's only the promise of a happy future.

Ok, now that I've taken that out of the way, because three years was too long, I can get to the main story. First of all, I'm really happy that Blissful Sin scanlated it. The story in itself was rather good, though I felt it paled a tiny bit in comparison to the other story, perhaps because of my lingering feeling for it. It's more similar to Scarlet than to the rest of her stories, that have less angst.
My only complain is that I wish that
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Natsume had realised the true depth of the pain he was causing Asahi, that had me feeling a bit unsatisfied.
Apart from that I liked it quite a lot. I do realize I must be a bit of a masochist for liking this XD, though I only like the pain if there is a happy resolution at the end, if not, just forget it.

Oh man it's at times like this that I wish I knew Japanese in order to read mangas the most proper way: the original version. With the only currently available scans, half of the time I have no idea who's saying what at all. Oh well.

As for the manga, I have to say the second story is much more intriguing than the first, even if the execution still needs more work to polish it. Both stories try to deal with darker themes though both haven't reached their full potential, which is really a shame. At the end of the day I think that I still prefer the mangaka's more cheerful works compared to her serious stories that don't quite feel 'there' yet such as these.
