the only shortcoming this story has is giving you false hope of serialization at the end. when i first read this i couldnt wait for it to be serialized.... and now it's like 4 years later and all i have is disappointment x.x. it's great as a one shot, but it would have been so much better as a series.

This looks so promising, a fun and touching manga. I'm curious whether Yaeko can't speak or won't, but she certainly makes herself understood.. A great pity this was never serialized!

I'd like to date a person like the protagonist. Usually you're not that diligent in finding out why somthn wrong. HEh...
The art is a bit like comics style, and there are few words since the protagonist is silent. - still it was fun.

From the way it ended, I'm assuming that there is more of this somewhere. Any how, I really like the art style, especially the protagonist's unchanging face. It was refreshing. I also like cute couple stories, and this way, though not in the usual manner.

I suppose it reflects reality, and all the things that a gentle heart has to deal with. Overall, I liked it much more than I expected.
