I was captivated by the art style and the realistic storytelling made me not only salute this mangaka but became one of my favorites.
On the other note, "Yume miru kakashi" story stands out most for me in this collection.

My favourite is the second and third story. It's a simple slice of life story, but it's so touching from the way mangaka draw it. The art is beautiful, I don't hate this kind of style. It's slow pace... calming... It's beautiful in the way it is.

Those who like bittersweet-heart warming series maybe will like this one^^

This was a fairly sad manga, but it was quite creative with some twist endings. The only problem I had, was I didn't really understand the first story. If someone can explain it, please do.

To begin with - The artist did a great job. The artwork is near to reality and underlines the storyline absolutely well. I saw a smiliar style before, but everytime this comes up, it makes me want to fawn over the pages a minute longer, just looking at the panels. It's amazing.

The name giving chapter Shiki no Zenjitsu was really bittersweet and overflowing with emotions. Things, that will stay unsaid and live on inside the characters, but are also expressed through hints. The atmosphere is captivating and calm at the same time, so this story already got me hooked right away.

Azusa 2 gou de sakai brings some mystery elements into this collection. It again a quiet story, which doesn't need anything and just flows naturally in a calm pace. The ending was surprising, sad and yet leaves me with a nice feeling.

After a long time Monochrome Siblings came up with middle aged protagonists and an unusual twin setting. Just for that I already was positive suprised, but the ending was the last bit it needed to convince me. Maybe this sad story will be my favourite out of this collection, because it includes all kinds of feelings. From love, unrequited and mutual, to jealousy and fear and anger and closeness among siblings, and secret or open longing. It's a full course and that told in a touching way.

Two chapters belong to Yume miru kakashi. It may be my personal preference, but the western settind distracted me a bit. Sighs. Even if the story was nicely done, it wasn't really something to catch my attention langer than necessary. Mianhae~

Juugatsu no Hakoniwa was different again and something, that is worth remembering. It has this old school horror feel to it, the atmosphere is dark & heavy, although the conclusion just puts everything in order again. It was an interesting turn around, when everything was cleared up and set in order.

Lastly Sorekara was a cute ending. All in all a suitable last read for this collection.

for the 3rd story (ch 4/5). Even though I cry for everything, I really really liked how the older brother was portrayed. (as an older sister with a younger sister). I read the stories as they came out so I don't really remember the other stories as well but I remember absolutely loving them.

Absolutely wonderful set of short stories <3

The stories are very touching. I didn't cry but I almost did on the third story. The stories are simple yet heart-breaking in a sense.

Very very good read. Extremely heart-warming stories.
