Lel I was recommended the third oneshot and I honestly thought it was bae af. (I like the concept of manly girl x girly boy) When the girl wanted to be more feminine, I was just like: OH HELLLL NO!!!! The ending though, was the best. 1) and 2) were average so -2. The art style isn't my type of style so -1.

Good one shots

Plot-wise, the first one shot was well executed, the twist was nice - although you could totally see it coming ( I guess the satisfaction comes from you confirming it?) while the idea of an everlasting live may seem romantic, It doesn't really seem realistic and may actually be downright sad and depressing.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The guy devoted his entire youth to his girlfriend, I wouldn't be able to do that...

Flaws aside, this one shot is a pretty good read, the art is clean and the ending, a happy one. While I might have been harsh on this one-shot, I liked it and still reread it from time to time.

The second one had a lot of potential, but my oh my did it veer off course... I almost flipped my desk in anger when I finished it. The concept of reincarnation is pretty neat and is one of my favourite themes to look for in manga series, but that still didn't save the one-shot for me. The whole story actually felt kind of "forced" like a commentator earlier had mentioned - like it had to end "that" way. It might have been because the one-shots were published in Betsucomi and editors encourage mangakas to write about hetero couples, but in my opinion, it might have been better if Yasuko-sensei left the two protagonists as is.

The third one was pretty average, it was cliche but was still fun to read and I guess the female MC was likable to a certain degree. I didn't have any high expectations reading it so it was alright.

Overall, this collection was decent, I'd recommend people read the first story and decide whether they'd want to continue on from there,

I loved the first story, liked the third story, and got irritated by the second story. My advice: Read just stories 1 & 3; story 2 would pull the rating down.

Incidentally, my issues with story 2 are these:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
First of all, the therapist violates his patient's confidentiality, yet it's totally glossed over in the story. Secondly, it's based on the absurdity of past life memories and inconsistent time travel thingamajigs. The story would be much better without.

Interesting stories with satisfying endings

Solid set of oneshots. Each story had it's own distinct story and interesting aspects to them. Since they were oneshots, the endings were a bit abrupt but I felt all three stories had relatively okay pacing (story two was a bit rushed/underdeveloped, IMO because the author was trying to fit too much in).

Fun read, worth it!

theres nothing of great note in this manga. bland characters, common art, unimaginative storyline - you name it, it is average. however, average does not mean bad, i still get through it because theres still some cute moments here and there. read this if you want to, but skip this if you dont have much time for manga reading and pick a more flavourful manga out there.

1. Hey unexpectedly interesting, aww it really was good, the story was executed wonderfully. 8/10
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Sachika said she'll definitely return all the lost times Tetsuo has had, well what if she gets into another coma again? muahahaha, need to recover even more time then, muahaha...ok sorry for being cruel~

2. Man i realize this mangaka is a really good storyteller, writing a oneshot that doesn't feel short at all and at the same time so intriguing, how does she do that smile amazed. happy. love how the story ended. love the whole plot. 8.5/10

3. huhuh, thank goodness, this wasn't very long, i didn't find it very interesting, just ok. 7/10

Overall, the artwork was awesome, the stories no doubt was great, except for the last one, i felt it was borderline ok for me.

How did it get so many 10's? Or is the 10 losing its meaning? If anything, this was just a compilation of average to above-average oneshots- nothing spectacular or creative even. The concepts were interesting but being a oneshot and all, characters felt 2 dimentional and the plot was too quick for any kind of endearment for the characters.

It was okay, but TEN does not quite fit it for me.

But I am and I'm basing it off a single story. I don't understand what the praise stems from in all honesty, I never felt the stories were really about love or had a semblance of that emotion in the work. The ideas were generally interesting, but the execution and resolutions were poor and should I phrase it..."forced". All I could sense was a single road of linear thought, the stories were of interest but the author in my opinion, lacked the creativity to make the stories enjoyable. It was a 'meh' for me. Didn't stick and now I struggle to even remember what they were about.

I really loved the first story-it actually made me cry. Tetsuo really loved sachika and he didn't want he to be hurt. He loved her so much that he was willing to hide everything, even who he was. BEST ONESHOT EVER

1) Yumenara Samenaide -- The ending might have been obvious to everyone else, but I certainly didn't expect it. It was adorable, though; I really loved it. The guy was such a sweetheart to Sachika. It made me sad in a way, but the sweetness factor outweighed the slight bitterness in it.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
However, it made me sad that so much time had passed and that he lost so much of his youth. I wish it had been a shorter time skip as opposed to 15 years. I think that maybe 5-7 years also would have worked out well.

2) The Rainbow Love Song -- Okay, so I expected it to be a

when you walk under the rainbow bridge.

3) Beauty and the Beast -- I usually love a good, manly sort of male lead to match up with a strong, independent-sort of girl. However, the author made me like the guy despite his girlish personality and the girl's personality was interesting. She's feminine in her own way, which I liked.

I recommend it to anyone who wants a quick read that makes you grin wink
