Description
A collection of stories about the joy and pain of falling in love!

1) Natsu no Kakera
Mayu, a 2nd year in high school, is longing for a “summer lover”. Pretending to be a university student, she flirted around. Turned out that the cool guy, Wada Naoto, she met goes to her school… What was supposed to be just a short fling continued as an ambiguous after-school relationship when Wada started to call Mayu for sex. But Sex is no longer enough for her. Inside her the desire to reduce the distance grows. Countless thoughts cross her mind as she becomes unable to control her feelings for Wada. Can she finally express her true self to him?

2) Hatsukoi♥Again

The former "polka-dot faced" girl and the "fatty" meet at a goukon!? But wait, wasn't he kind and gentle before? Now he may have changed on the inside as well...

3) Yasashii Kizu
Like in a TV drama, she saw a handsome guy getting dumped. In order to cheer him up, she invited him to her house, but she ended up getting drunk and ended up sleeping with him! Despite of their one night stand, they did become friends. Can they be more than friends?

4) Anata o Hitorijime
Shinoda Suzu accidentally collides with the school's "scariest" person Kikuza Tsuyoshi. Instead of being rough, he ends up saving her from her own clumsiness. Realising that all of those rumours are just a misunderstanding, Shinoda starts to fall for him...

5) Anata o Hitorijime - Extra
A little snapshot of the clumsy Suzu and the "scary" Kikuza's date together, from his POV!

Story 1: Mediocre, you really don't get to hear both sides of the story, which I was sort of expecting from the summary. Predictable and unnecessarily winded. Almost nil character development or back story.

Story 2 feels surprisingly sincere and mature. Nothing, not the characters or story execution feels forced or predictable. And despite an over the top twist here n there, it reads like a sweet love song till the end.

Story 3: Interesting, unexpectedly honest and realistic, but I didn't really see the point or any character development or the damn reason this story was written other than as a vehicle for a smutty exchange! Don't let that discourage you from seeing a cute heroine make a fool of herself and then her iron clad resolve to improve.

Story 4: Has a funny bit which keeps repeating itself and an adorable hero, though nothing extraordinary in the way of storytelling other than an especially possessive and insecure heroine.

Typical cliche stories with added smut - but it was surprisingly different. I don't know if it was the art or the subtle comedy that grabbed my attention, but I ended up really liking every story in this anthology smile
