Wasted Potential

... This was certainly an interesting read. While the manga does not feel rushed and a new spin is given to cliched tropes, thus sensei did properly think things through, sensei stopped short of given it some more thought.
Therefore, the manga is not bad or annoying but, in terms of execution, narration, and drawing it falls flat. While there is an over all coherence, internally there's no cohesion and the flow is too choppy. It is only the characterizations and the way in which the story unfolds that is definitely entertaining and unique.
Side note: While I do find the art to be meh, this type old school of drawing is actually very much my type.

This manga is uncertain and awkward in both art and story telling. Sometimes the bodies look disproportionate. There are also some odd transitions (I had to double check and make sure I hadn't skipped any pages), and I can honestly say that I have seen every one of these BL scenarios multiple times in other manga, so, yes, this is yet another cliched yaoi.

The best example of the sort of awkwardness I'm talking about is found in the second story. The main character who has been yelling at the main love interest takes on a gentler voice and starts to say the main love interests name, but trails off. ("Momo-cha-") We then get a shot of the love interest's relaxed face for the next panel. Then suddenly the sound effect BANG. The main character's face screws up in pain and he falls to the floor in more of a shamed position than a pained one. He says "Ow". The subject is then dropped and the story continues on as planned. What in the world, man!? Did he hit his head? But they don't show him touching anything, and what was the point of that scene anyway? It took me a few minutes to figure it out, but the only thing that makes sense is that he had a sudden sharp headache. (Seriously scanlators, "BANG" for a headache? lol) I guess it's meant to be a result of the implied
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
theme. Which may or may not actually be present in this story. (Because
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
gives you headeaches, don't you know.) Yeah, this story makes no sense.

In it's defense, this manga did maintain a certain level of unpredictability (at least for me). Even though I knew the outcome of each story, I didn't always know the path the mangaka would take to get there. Sadly this was mostly due to the characters behaving in ways that didn't entirely make sense. I wouldn't recommend this as reading choice for someone looking for realistic complex characterization.

There is one other plus to this collection: There aren't an crybaby damsel-in-distress ukes. (Hallelujah)

To put it bluntly this manga is bad. Usually, when I find a manga to be bad, I find it to be incredibly annoying in a juvenile kind of way. That isn't the case for this piece. It isn't the least bit annoying. It just feels like an amateur work. With some practice I'm sure this mangaka could be decent. I'll likely keep an eye out for other work by her for comparison purposes.

Well I liked the first and third stories the best as far as plot, but as for the art...well thats a whole other story, the first storys art was pretty enough, although a little rough but as the stories went on they all started to look like cavemen -_-" but if your into that kinda thing, be my guest smile
