2nd story

I stopped there. Usually with themes like this I can still finish the manga but I had to stop at 2. I could feel that the crappy theme was gonna be in all the stories. Disgusting guys and girls with no character or self esteem.

There's an overall depressive theme in this manga..................
The art is a bit funky - not all mine (I prefer my men to be dead sexy).
The 2nd story was a bit disturbing to me. This is exactly the kinda guy women need to not get involved with. An egoistic asshole who uses his friend, then sleep with another woman while dating a cute girl.... but the protagonist is the same. She goes and sleeps with a taken man. Ugh. A oneshot isn't long enough to even make me wanna try to feel for them and like them enough to forgive them for acting this way.
Story 3 is about a girl who has an incredibly rude and abusive boyfriend...I feel upset just cause she is dumb enough to stick with him that long.
Story 5 is also disturbing as the girl just gives her body to anyone and her boyfriend passes her around..................
The smut was alright.

Well, happy is something else. Don't read it if you want something sweet and lighthearted.
If you don't mind a lot of abuse and women that are brainless and do everything a guy tells them then you can go ahead and give ii a shot.

you won't get a "happily ever after" feeling after reading those, even though we are supposed to feel that way. It seems as if the characters suffer from constant depression, even sex scenes are somewhat like the last breath before death. The first four stories are at least readable, but the last one, teach me love, is rather disturbing. The girl requires counseling and a good venereologist, the guy certainly has issues being attracted to someone like her. The scene with cum running down her thigh was disgusting and superfluous, although I don't mind it in other smut mangas with passionate sex, not depressive one like in this manga.

The best ones were definitely "Rainbow Smile" and "Teach Me Love"! They were both about a girl in an abusive relationship, who finds the courage to stand up for herself and ends up finding someone who cherished her instead smile Cute! Bonus points for "Teach Me Love" because it was in the guy's POV! He was really sweet smile I preferred the female lead in "Rainbow Smile" though.

The second one, "One Summer's Day" is just terrible. The girl's a weak-minded doormat and the guy's a two-timing jerkface. I don't even understand how they ended up together. Don't read it.

The other two are okay, but they didn't stand out to me too much. "Voice of Love" is just a typical cute fluffy romance. "Pictures of Us" was okay... although I thought the age gap was a bit too creepy for my taste. He's double her age!! The girl even tells him he reminded her of a dad! It was cute, I suppose, but not my cup of tea.

I find the last story very weird. The girl agrees to sleep with other people just so that the guy can be her friend? what kind of reasoning is that? I mean, there's a limit to how a naive person would be. Even though this isn't reality but...still! Gosh. Honestly saying, I don't like people who sleeps around like a prostitute or some gigolo. I gave it a 6 mainly because the art is quite nice, which reminds me...yoshii yuu sensei's art. Especially the eyes.

I loved every single one of those, except "One Summer's Day". These one shots were about broken hearts and how they're mended together and/or start of something new, in a deep way. c: Very cute & very josei-like at the same time.
In "One Summer's Day", I cringed when she actually liked that stupid mofo... She's such a nice girl and seems like she is very caring, and that asshole is just... ugh. That was one of the worst pairing this author created. And trust me, I love almost everything she makes. But this pairing was just... no. I hated it.
But everything else, I love love loved.
"Voices of Love" was pretty good, in my opinion. Very cute.
"Rainbow Smile" was amazing.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
When at the end, he said to her that the bruises and scars were a proof of how strong she was and that she was beautiful, it was genuinely beautiful. It was just... amazing. idk, am I overreacting? Haha. I was expecting something like "I still love you anyways BlahBlah" and things sort of cliche like that. But I got such a beautiful ending.
Anyways, I really love this story.
"Picture of Us" was pretty deep and cute. I really liked it.
"Teach Me Love", in my opinion, was great. I was like wow, she is such a loose girl, she has no respect for her body or herself at all, ughhh. -_- and then I realized that she just didn't know what love and friendship was. She was like a lost little puppy. And it was so cute that the male lead helped her get to the track she should be in. It was sort of deep and cute.

Okay, the others pretty much said all i wanted to but the only thing I wanted to add is that this actually hurt my heart several times. girls are not so naive and guys are so abusive. it might not be a pretty decent manga but its good. not to mention the art smile

Broken Characters & Tainted Relationships   
Rating: 5.0 / 10.0

Aside from the first one-shot, almost ALL of these stories involve characters with deep, deep emotional issues and relationships that are doomed as a result. Drama in one-shots is always a nice thing - I love a dramatic turn as much as anyone else. However, here... These stories are so tainted by the characters' issues that it's impossible to really enjoy the romance whenever there is some. Their relationships are almost all doomed to failure, because not a single one of them actually addresses their issues. The "Happily Ever After" endings end up feeling more like a funeral dirge than a love song.

"Voices of Love" is definitely the most enjoyable of this set. The characters here are likeable and relatively normal. Their romance is sweet and the ending is satisfying.

"One Summer's Day" is where things start taking a bit of a darker turn. The female lead doesn't really value herself very much. The male lead is a jerk who doesn't value her much, either. The fact that he treated her the way he did in the past and she's still in love with him is pretty twisted. He's also a two-timer, on top of it. What a gem. In the end, I couldn't really care if she got with him or not - I still couldn't understand why anyone would WANT this guy.

"Rainbow Smile" is about a girl in an abusive relationship who just sticks around. So another tainted character in a broken relationship. At least in this one, the idea of the story is for her to get OUT of the relationship and end up with an altogether nicer guy. So while the story is still dark and involves twisted emotions and characters, it's kind of enjoyable. I just would've liked to see someone beat the crap out of the abusive guy. What a jerk.

"Pictures of Us" is about a crazy young girl who meets a shy man on the internet and... proceeds to be crazy. It's not necessarily dark, per se, but after the last two stories, I'd about reached my per-volume-quota of crazy women who just don't have any sense. A story that might've been cute and quirky in another volume was just grating and irritating in this one. At least she didn't seem to be too much of a slut. She had that going for her.

Now, after having said that the last story grated on my nerves for being "yet another crazy girl" story... I come to "Teach Me Love". This story is so twisted and insane, it shouldn't even be labeled a josei one-shot. This is something out of "Ripley's Believe It or Not: The Psychology Sessions" isn't it? I just... WHY did the mangaka think that this kind of female lead was someone people would enjoy reading about? She belongs on anti-depressants for one thing and someone, somewhere needs to stage an intervention for her. Even the well-meaning (well, eventually - he starts out as bad as anyone else in these stories) male lead comes off as a jerk for not doing what he ought to be doing. Instead of falling into a relationship with her, he ought to be taking her to a shrink PRONTO. A relationship based on this level of dependence and lack of self-esteem is doomed to failure. This girl is incapable of loving anyone in a remotely normal manner and any man who would find her co-dependency charming (or even acceptable) is pretty messed up, himself.

In all, if you like your stories dripping in drama and your female leads co-dependent and lacking in self-esteem, you'll maybe like this volume. Otherwise, you'll want to read the first story and then head for the hills.

Really nice short stories. Even though each group of characters is can't be deeply developed, you care for them enough to enjoy FULLY each of their stories.
Loved the art, each sex scene was hot while tastefully done.
The stories were all really varied, all very different from each other.
