Description
1-4+extra: Stalemate
Shinichi and his uncle (Chiharu) have always had a close relationship. Meeting almost everyday to play games and have chess matches together all the way through to his high-school years. Both treasure each other and the relationship they have but as time passes and both are unable to say what they really feel or ask for what they really want, they for a time start to drift apart. Until the distance and a "final" chess match decides once and for all what they both wanted all along.

6: Holding hands together
Sakura Tomo returns after 10 years to his relatives house in the countryside, where he stayed for some time as a boy. This house contains memories of a past trauma but also of a first love, but is it really how he remembers it?

7: Getting close to a cat
Gohongi Kotarou looks like a Bruiser but actually he loves cute little cats, although he doesn't know how to handle them gently. Therefore Nakano offers to teach him, feeling sorry for the fearful cats after having to experience first hand Kotarous rough attempts at affection.

I liked the oneshots much better, especially the last one with the cat! The main story was okay, was a bit boring, 'cuz the storyline seems very cliché. But it's still okay, 'cuz both of the characters seems to be alike. But overall, it was okay!

Absolutely loved the final story! It was so cute and actually pretty hot too (there isn't even any sex but the purring makes it surprisingly kinky... ^^) The other two stories are alright, but my rating is for the last one only.

Okay hmm...
the main story is not that bad, but what really irks me is that the first chapters are sooo confusing. Not that anything really happens but the speech bubbles all seem so disconnected and like they have nothing do with each other. This will leave you with nothing but a headache.

BUT, what is really worth it here are the two oneshots at the end!
The first one tells the story of a man who goes back to his hometown the first time in many years and he is nervous about meeting his old childhood buddy again - the one he had a crush on. But somehow that friend seems to not care anymore at all and the only one treating him nicely is the little brother - the one whom he only remembers as the kid who used to bully him.........

The 2nd oneshot is about a boy who wished he was a cat and right away gets turned into a cute catboy! Nobody can see his tail and ears though .... except the school's rowdy, a guy who is very rough and seems to love to chase him around....
