Nice light hearted stories. But some seem without a conclusion, for example Sickness of the First Love and Kitsune Tsuki (Fox Moon) . I would have loved to know what Ayase decided and what happened with Shiro(scratch that, read ZeroNine's explanation about Fox Moon down there ^-^). But overall, they are cute stories. I felt all fluffy when I read them :3

I really liked most of the stories except for the first one, which was rather standard and not very reflective of her writing ability as the scenes were a bit too draggy for my tastes and the feelings and moments not fleshed out enough for the number of pages.

All the stories come with a twist at the end, though, they don’t always enfold well. For example: in "A Happy Person", the twist is there but the implementation is a bit weak. But a redeeming factor of the story was that the feelings of the main character were fleshed out rather thoroughly.

That said, all the stories have interesting qualities like ““The Mystery That Began on the Train” which felt more like an Ian Flemings’ thriller, done in noir comic style. However, sometimes I felt as if part of the story was missing as the scenes and writing is a bit chaotic, a trait common to all the stories.

The first story is the best in my opinion. Nothing I read after seemed to really click in my brain, because I was so wrapped in the 1st story. Could you really mistaken your long lost lover for his kid?!

This is a wonderful collection of stories filled with beautiful and sometimes quirky art. I agree with bunnyhugger in that most of the stories really seemed like they were individual chapters taken out of their own manga. I'd love to read more about what happens to Yuuto and H, Tada and Shiro, and Komiya and Dai-chan. Even so, these stories are worth reading for their tantalizing glimpses into these characters' lives. And thanks to ZeroNine for the explanation of "why not eat him." You're right; knowing the cost of Shiro's choice not to eat Tada shows the depth of his devotion to Tada.

I like Sickness of the First Love and Fox Moon best

Fox Moon - it's a shame that "why not eat?" is not explained. An animal spirit gets its freedom by eating its human owner or whomever holds the possession of their soul. Without this explanatory note, the significance (and the sheer romance) of Shiro's decision may be lost on some readers.

All of these seem like the first chapter of a manga and not a one shot. None of the stories seemed complete enough to be satisfying, they all felt like they needed a few more chapters to give the characters more time and more story.
