From Storm in Heaven:

This volume contains two parts, Bus Hashiru and Nanairo Sekai. Bus Hashiru is a collection of five short stories centered around bus stops. In all your encounters with strangers that take place there, isn't there a chance you might discover something you hadn't had before...? A new take on life, or a lost love - nothing is beyond you.

#1: Sky-Winding Bus Stop
(Karamagari Teiryuujo)

A salesman disinterested in his job meets a high school girl and after chatting with her, his viewpoint about his job changes...

#2: Sakura Street Bus Stop
(Sakurachou Teiryuujo)

A day before graduating from high school, Hikaru confessed her love to Makihara-sensei, the Biology teacher of their school. She promised to meet him at the bus stop after she graduates from college and that she'll marry him then. Five years have passed by since then...

#3: Wasurena Hill Bus Stop
(Wasurenagaoka Teiryuujo)

Yuka gets a postcard from her high school crush informing her of his marriage. She recollects how she couldn't even face him directly and confess her true feelings back then...

#4: Weather Forecast (Tenki Yomi)
His weather prediction is often wrong. He repeatedly fails his exams. But still, in his despair-filled life, there's someone who'll wait for him at the bus stop on rainy days...

#5: Dudleya Road (Dudleya no Michi)
A boy loved a girl of his neighbouring country. Only a road connected both the countries and a bus ran on it. One day, the two countries started fighting and a war was impending. The bus stopped running between their countries and the connecting road was demolished. Can the two lovers' connected hearts bridge the gap between their nations?

#6: The Glasses Thief (Megane Dorobou)
see Nanairo Sekai

#7: Adult-Uniform (Otona no Seifuku)
see Nanairo Sekai

Enthralling collection of oneshots

Finespun story-telling, exquisite artwork and likable characters makes this stick with you long afterwards. It sparked various emotions in me, some which I just can't describe. I like how the author communicates the story to us in a subtle, understated way. I highly recommend that you read the side-story as well.

Up to this point this series was wrongfully tagged as "Shoujo", it's not shoujo, it's seinen perhaps that's why you felt about the story the way you felt. the author under the name SAHARA Mizu writes only seinen works.

Personally I loved this little collection of one shots.

The art is better than the stories...

For sure, the ideas behind her stories range from decent to quite good and in Bus Hashiru, the themes are also quite interesting. However, the problem is that her stories(BL or otherwise) sometimes suffer from a lack of depth and can sometimes be far too simple. Though I must say that Hashiru was a bit better than some of her other stories.

In this mangaka's case, the artwork actually breathes quite a bit of life into the characters as well as the plot, adding a touch of gentleness to the story. Yes, she is a mangaka who could be quite promising should her style mature further in the future, though she doesn't as of yet deserve any sort of crowning mantle.

Feel-good stories

Bus Hashiru has no stories that make you think "Masterpiece!" or that have amazing, never-before-seen plotlines. But it's still great. You just feel so... good, I guess, after reading it. It's happy, and nice, and there's very little angst. A nice, enjoyable read.

Great one shots

There are many great one shots in the manga. The art is amazing and the last story was something. Overall I can only give it a 8/10 because like some people said it is just simple story with different plots. I still recommend people to read this manga if you read a sad manga or got bored of one.

this manga is one of the most beautiful, if not the most beautiful I have ever read. it's delicate and has emotional depth. I had goosebumps while reading it. I was asking myself how did the manga-ka captured me with such few pages? it gave me a whole new meaning of how powerful media a manga is in terms of emotional depths and storytelling.

I got goosebumps reading the 5th chapter. It's really good. I love how they end--totally fits the story. In my opinion, the stories are heart wrenching and makes someone just not give up on, not just romance, but on everything.


10/10 Plot

Wonderfully Made Collection of Stories

All of them are so heartwarming, with not much romance, just a teensy bit of it, but it makes you happy all around. ^-^ I bow down to the mangaka that can make such stories with beautiful art~ so light no heavy drawings, water color feel. ~sakura petals~ ~Sakura Street Bus Stop~
