Shinjou Shouryuu is a healthy 17-year-old high-school boy. Many of his kouhai wonder why such a great guy doesn't have a girlfriend. Ask him and he'll tell you that between school, work, and saving his kouhais from bullies doesn't leave him much time to go on dates. So he instead goes online to "F.I.L. GATES". There in the chat room his alter-ego, Kakeru, is infatuated with the girl called Hal. Hal sends a message reminding him that Sunday will be the six month anniversary of when they first met (online) and that she wants to meet him in person! And let's just say it's not your typical first date.
This manga is about the romance and complexities of an internet relationship.

Not what it seems at first !
At first it seems like one shots. But actually it isn't !
If like me you stoped reading because you didn't like how it was going the first 3 chapters. Please, stick with the manga for a little longer, as the characters of the first chapter come back, and seems to be the "main" ones for the rest of the story !
It seemed like oneshots, but story 4 is the same couple from story 1. Stories 2 and 3 is about a separate couple which make an appearance in story 4.
not what it seems like
being the person who translated this... let's just say, it's not what you think it is.. and the summary is pretty misleading too.. just stay tuned and then you'll get what i mean.
i just hate that there's still only 1 volume out. when will v2 come out?!

From what I read so far, I really like this series. It reminds me A LOT of salad days, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. I would say you can expect "short stories" rather than "one shots" (they aren't the same! at least to me lol). Obviously some stories will only get one chapter, but the others that need to be fleshed out a bit (aka ch2-3) will get a few more.
Stories so far have all been extremely heart warming. Art is pretty nice, but fairly standard. Worth a read, so see what you think.
series of oneshots?
so far it seems like a series of oneshots, which i dont like but i cant judge it yet since its only two chapter 'Each story is about boy-girl meeting on internet..."F.I.L. GATES"' sounds like its a bunch of oneshots...
Strange, because this is the first time I've written a comment, and certainly the first time I've commented on a manga after only one chapter. However, I've re-read this chapter 2 or 3 times in the last few hours, and I still find it enjoyable. The art seems good quality, the plot has potential, and the characters engaging. I'm looking forward to what comes next.
