A decent collection of oneshots.

Story 1 - Orange Kiss: This one was cute, though I would've liked more set up. We're told that both Aka and Shimizu thought the other party hated them, so they acted cold to each other. But frankly it wasn't too convincing - a few words, hurrah! problem resolved and they're suddenly friends. More backstory = bigger sense of reward when they make up.

Story 2 - Fortunate Words: This was probably my favourite of the bunch. Ichi becomes friends with the closed-off Saiko and supports her modelling career.

Story 3 - Last Train Under the Night Sky: What the heck? This was the only one I didn't like. Someone should've told Mei to just dump the guy if he was acting so disinterested in her all the time rather than following him everywhere. There was no reason why the boy couldn't have told her what was troubling him - he was basically just being a stubborn, insensitive jerk.

Story 4 - More Orange Kiss: I liked being able to see things from Shimizu's point of view, which somewhat alleviated the issue I mentioned above with Part 1. Still, it would've been nice if we could see more of why Shimizu liked Aka.

the first story was very sweet, but of course predictable...but, hey, it's a one-shot so it's ok and as I said before it was sweet.

The second story...why does she get angry on page 11 (not a real spoiler ^__-)? I didn't understand... But the ending was very nice. But what's with Ichi's ridiculous earring?? >.< But I liked him. He was nice and...good. Not like this "mainstream" bishounen in other mangas, who are always cool and also cold-hearted, I dislike those.

Story 3:.... WHAT the hell...!? The boy is..I'm speechless.Why wouldn't he tell her what's he thinking about? If he doesn't trust her he should't go out with her! And why is she apoligizing confused What for? That she cared about him, that she worried about their relatiinship? No way...this story was bad. Sorry.

All in all it was don't have to read it...but it's....okay if you do.
