The story is great!! The art is a not really my cup of tea, the background shading is too much and dark. I think it's only natural considering it was published 10 yrs ago. The plot is deep but doesn't fill with with too much angst .

I give Hinata a 10. It's such a cute story, cuter than most of Naono's works. I love Ruri and Kakeru (I think I'm a sucker for 'saved from suicide' stories in general, but this one is so much more loveable). It is a little strange that someone would invite a kid to live with him and babysit after only knowing him a few days, but I think Shouichi could just feel the pain Kakeru's from previous life.

The others are iffy, just like Toware no Mi (but what do you expect, this is only her second tankobon). Chapter 6 is pretty good, even though I dislike tragedy. So I'll rate an 8.5- 10 for Hinata and 7 for the others.

I WILL GIVE ALL THE STORY 10 POINT!!! Well... except the 2nd and 6th. smile
Okay, the 2nd story is good, and i didn't really suprised with who's the Seme or the Uke. But, well... though i didn't really like they 'role' but i like the story, so, i will give 8 point. And about the 6th story, i don't know why but i didn't really feel the story and i kinda already expected what will the ending look like. So, i'll give 7.5 point for them. So, except the 2nd and 6th story, all story of this manga is REALLY GOOD!!! biggrin RECOMMENDED!!! ♥

This story evokes such passionate feelings from me. I loved the 3 main characters. I felt tears welling up.

In the story of Kakeru and Shouichi, the eloquent yet intense way this mangaka communicates heartbreaking scene and quietly powerful scenes is included in the most moving word-art and picture-art I have come across.
