From JManga:
"Online communication. You can't tell whether the things someone says are real or not. But you can just barely sense that there's a real person behind those words. Aragaki, a game creator, really likes that moment of realization, and goes online day after day. Recently, he's been logging on to talk to a new online friend ""Blue Bee""...."

This story is included in "Starting with a Kiss Vol.1."

Too short, it would be nice if it was expanded more into the plot. Realistic and the main character is not a typical pretty guy, I like that..Clean and nice artwork as usual for Nitta Youka.

This was such a cute Oneshot. The characters are nicely drawn, both in personality and art biggrin Quite well portrayed for an Oneshot. The only reason I did not give this a 10 was because the plot was slightly predictable and because the story ended too soon. At least a couple of extra chapters could have followed this nice introduction into the characters' lives.

I can relate to this manga myself since I have played online games ever since I've gotten a computer with internet. Like the character, I've had my fair shares of crushes on the games but only a little and, of course, have made a lot of online friends on said games.

The only difference is how this story went and it might be pretty predictable for those who are good at guessing but the way it was written was wonderful. Reactions and even the logs that you will see are a lovely plus.

I'm so glad youka nitta finally made her come back.
I greatly appreciated this oneshot. The story was meaningful and very sweet.
Besides the story called out to me because just like the main character i have made a best friend online that is really dear to me. And i'm sure that many readers will agree with me because using the internet we've all experienced this at least once, that is, making one or two good friends online.

good points of this oneshot:
-gorgeous art (as usual for nitta-sensei)
-feelings of the characters that are greatly conveyed to the reader
-complex character (well, especially Gaki)
-a realistic plot
-although this is a oneshot, it seems to be longer, and you can truly believe that gaki (main character who's a geek) is close to his online friend. why ? Because Nitta-sensei displayed lots of their online conversations. That way, the reader is unable to witness the binding of their friendship. Normally, with a oneshot you often get the feeling that the events and characters are brought together for the sake of the story, but that nothing is really binding them together. You got a fleeting feeling.
With double play is the contrary. Here, youíre the under the impression that long before you came, the people were already bound with ties. Thatís what made the story so stuck into reality.
-Gaki has a cute face, with a cute hair cut.
