1. The Circle
All social connections fall into circles, some circles intersect, and some people can never connect. Captain Tachikawa wants to be closer to talented amateur Furuda, but it's surprisingly difficult.

2. The Box
After seeing the friend he's loved for ten years be swept up in an out-of-the-blue romance, Andou's more than a little heartbroken. Then in steps the freakishly tall Higa, a first year at the university, to pick up the pieces... if only Andou actually wanted him too.

3. Blood Hope
A man(Hisae Kai) living with his daughter and grandchild finds a mysterious book and releases a demon(Hakuou). That demon offers to grant him one wish, but for a price...

4. Blood Trap
The story of Blood Hope continues with Hisae Kai, his daughter, his granddaughter, and Hakuou - a demon - living peacefully together. This peace is interrupted by a heavenly messenger sent to seal Hakuou, and Hisae must move to protect the ones he loves from this meddlesome spirit.

5. Blood Chip
Hisae Kai, his family, and the demon, Hakuou, still live together blissfully. One morning, Hisae gets fed up with Hakuou's overflowing pottery works that are blocking Hisae's workspace and demands that he removes them. During the cleanup, Hisae is attacked by a strange creature and Hakuou must protect him.

6. Akuma to Issho

Circle starts out fine, though the school stories aren't anything to brag about. School life isn't my favorite genre, so the thing that seals the deal for me is the supernatural story.

I don't know what it is about Hisae that I find so interesting. Is it because he looks more like a DILF than a GILF? Is it because he's the coolest grampa ever? Or because he doesn't scare that easily? Eh, who cares, he's awesome. Hakuou is equally awesome, and I like him better than Kamui from Dakishimetakunai. Though I wish he'd let his hair down more often, long haired Hakuou is much hotter than short haired Hakuou.

Second that ZeroNine. It just was what it was. Nothing out of the ordinary. About the art of recent, I am not sure what my opinion is yet but I think I might just be partial to the older work and the way the lines flow together, the style was, how to put it, darn it haven't the vocabulary to describe my like of the shading and features that the past characters had. blah blah blah.

If anyone who read her earlier works were to read this one, they would definitely notice the difference in art. I prefer this, it looks a lot cleaner. Her style has become more defined and pleasant in my opinion.

The art style and tone seem a little different in this story, but the story itself - even it's a little shallow (which is what Naono's stories are getting to be these days), I liked it. Nothing to write home about, really.
