i love the art. it is sparse, lack details and blindingly white, but it convey enough important information through body languages and subtle expression. the characters are long and lean and chic, painfully beautiful. and though the stories are mostly lest than 8 pages, they have better plots than 3546364 volume mangas.

There are some interesting ideas going on in this collection of one shots, however they are all ideas, brief interludes into the lives of others that don't seem to have much development or resolution to the problems they all centre around. Some of these ideas could have been combined to make a more lengthy story and others do work well in the shorter format. All in all they're a nice brief read for people interested in the subjects they bring up, love,sex etc however to really feel more involved and connected more time is needed and a clearer vision of the characters is also needed as you don't often get to see the characters face. The art is simplistic but quite to my taste as it balances realism and deals with the sexual scenes rather well (this is not a porn or smut manga it's a more realistic view of sex) theres also alot of nice compositional skill involved the panels and real thought has gone into what will be shown and what will be described which I found very interesting.
