Like Bloogal and Bjorie mentioned, I agree that the symbolism was potent and beautifully illustrated. The words were carefully and deftly chosen to create an ethereal atmosphere that the reader could find their own meaning - almost like a launching pad to explore within ourselves. Very touching.
simple yet complicated
I think that this story is about a love that is still unfigured, their feelings are slowly unraveling... But not impossible. We could link the fact that they went to the aquarium as being a way for the cat to understand the fish.
Like Bride of the Water God (her other work), this oneshot plot's similarly abstract in a way that makes the reader thinks as they read, unlike other manga. Cute.

nice, simple, read in your freetime
The story seems a bit abstract. It wanders around forbidden love, and figuratively links that into an aquarium visit. It's actually a good oneshot, that spins a tale worth reading albeit being a bit confusing and open ended.
Really good for a one-shot.
I really liked it. It didn't give you a solid start or end, but because of how its sort of a realistic just daily encounter, it was okay to do that. The characters didn't even get names. It felt like we just slipped into the girl's thoughts for the aquarium visit. Its hard to explain, and it might not suit everyone's tastes, but I approve. ^^
A cat that loved a fish...
It's not just about two people visiting an aquarium. The title should should give you a hint. A cat loving a fish? Impossible, right? This story deals with feelings that can never be realized. The art is also very very beautiful.
is there another part to this cuz the ending made it seem as if the story was going to continue
It didn't really go anywhere. It didn't really have a strong storyline either. It was just dangling there and hung even looser at the end. What I do like about it is the artwork, very intricate. That's what got me to the end. Also, I did understand some deeper emotional parts. I mean, it's almost underlying and it isn't realized that much. Still, overall, it was okay for a one-shot. But I suggest this mangaka's other work, Bride of the Water God. Love it!
