Description
A collection of 8 series of short stories, mostly about romance with appropriate dashes of humour.

1) Itou-san
Numerous brief comics about the life of a single 28-year old known to readers only as Itou-san, and her day-to-day interactions with a colleague whom she later dates.

2) Sensei+
An ordinary 25-year old schoolteacher meets a man who claims he can use magic and who goes on to ask her to return the magic she's borrowed from him, although she has no memory of such a thing. But when she uses magic, she turns into a magical girl instead?!

3) Hajimari
Masakazu meets his new step-sister for the first time. She's his age, and what's more, she's really cute. He's not really sure how he should handle this new addition in his life...

4) High & High
Being a tall girl is problematic in so many ways. This is a short comic about a tall girl who laments her height. But with her even taller boyfriend now, she wonders if his height is the only reason she's dating him.

5) Doukei no Ie
About a couple living in a ninja mansion. It would be the most awesome house if not for the fact that it is crawling with all sorts of booby traps and secret passageways - a pain to live in. What will come of the quarrel between the two over the decision to buy over and live in the mansion?

6) Chocolate Cake
What does it mean when your husband suddenly buys a chocolate cake home on any other ordinary day?

7) Futari no Deai no Hanashi
Kouhei fondly recalls how his love with Saitou started out - the awkward silences, nervous waiting, embarrassed smiles, and what it all finally led to. Based on a true story.

8) Bluff
Harada is well known for her big mouth in rattling off all the faults of her seniors in the girls' volleyball club. But is there more than meets the eye? And how will the tension between Harada and the senior girls finally be resolved?

Short love stories, in different ways

What I like about Aki Eda is how her slice of life mangas really do give a "everyday life" feeling, mostly because her stories consist only on calm characters talking and flirting most of the time.

And... what I like about Itou-san is how the mangaka explores the different types of love and different types of development in very short stories, but still inside that calming atmosphere.

We have one about two people getting together, other about how magic can create a love story, one about unexpected feelings and so on. Ones receive more attention while others just show a glimpse of their relationship, but both send their messages about love and romance.

Also, the good part is that it not only focus on romantic relationship limited to "boyfriend and girlfriend", but it also has married couples, platonic love, kouhai-senpai relationships...

As a slice-of-life, it's very good to past time and laugh a bit. Some one-shots in this manga you are going to wish they were longer (for me, High & High, Sensei+ and Bluff), but I guess having a good ending in a short one-shot is the good part of it ("This is surprisingly good for such a short story!").

Give it a try!
