It's so difficult to tell a manga story with no words, but the artist here managed pretty well. I thought the style was appropriate since the main character was a teen boy. Still, it would have benefited from some more pages, and as the other reviewer mentioned, more focus on expressions. With no dialog the reader needs to get all the words from those.

the summary reveal at least half of the plot. nothing going for it except the pretty art, but i dont think the shounen art is suitable for this kind of story. a shoujoish, light, airy art with more highlights and focus of expressions is better to bring out the emotions of the reader. as it is, one dont feel anything, but as there is no text you wont feel like wasting your time.
