I love this manga... It might be a little cliche, but it's still worth a read. The art's great and it's so sweet *-*
I cried... T_T

Okay, I've finished in one go and really enjoyed it. I guess deep down I'm somewhat corny and actually, I've been reading a lof of josei and shoujo lately.

So, this manga is simple to its core: from the art, the characters to the plot. Everything is predictable and you almost see every cliche in the shoujo type. But isn't true that the simplest thing hits you the most? A typical Japanese young girl is sold to a geisha house, got a crush on the boy next door and dreaming of being with him. It's like a stereotype! However, as the author kept the story short, only in 2 volumes, you can clearly say the characters' development and the progress of story. There isn't any wishy-washy moment but very causual problems. In total, the manga gives out a feeling of slice of life.

I might be biased since I read this while remembering the good times of me and my girlfriend and how things should have turned to be. But all in all, give this manga try and you won't regret its simplicity and completion.

Why is the ending like that argggggggggh.The thing I didn't get is
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
why the hell didn't Chinatsu flipping tell his rich dad to not let him go into war ??
I really did enjoy this and I usually haate short manga but I didn't feel as though I was reading a short manga although I think this manga would of still been good if longer smile

The ending felt very predictable and rushed tbh and I knew that
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
when war was mentioned, their had to be a reason as to why it was (the mangaka wouldn't just throw that in outta nowhere -_-)
I loved the manga up until the end because I just felt like the ending was just thrown in outta nowhere and it just ddidn't suit the nice flow the story had going.I knew that the end would be like how it was when
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
:four years was mentioned...
and at the end I was left thinking "err...where's the ending, cuzz this sure as hell ain't it"

All in all i'd say good story, random/uneeded ending.

Oh and don't read the comment below me if you don't want the whole manga to be ruined :/

It's pretty and its a very good read. Not groundbreaking in anyway, but still an amazing read. It's perfect for when you get sick of the typical shoujo plots

Man...these people scared me and crap, I just got done crying.
This is a really good story to me it's not over cheesy and caked with crap. It's very original and artfully crafted, really good read.

this is a nice cute little story, im glad it ended the way it did.

the art was nice/very cute and i think the length was just right for this one. overall i liked it.

i dont understand why monkey thought the end was artificial, I have to disagree its what made the story so sweet.

Nice enough, I was loving it, but the flow got lostin the ending, it was rush. And I believe this being such a well drawn manga, that the author could at least been more poetic about. Maybe they forced her to end it like that, I don't. What's nice is that it doesn't feel like shouju most of the time, it has deep meaning even if it's quite unrealistic in several parts, you can feel the characters grow, which is a deepness you don't often find in shouju, even less in such short mangas. Read it, it's light and short, and sweet.
