I love this...everything about Sumono-sensei's work is gentle and her art style is beautiful.
Her way of writing is always profound...made my stomach flip etc a couple of times :3
I really like how androygnous her male characters are xD
I just wish I could find more manga like this one.

This was the first manga I ever purchased. The stories are all very gentle, sweet, and at times a little sad(though not depressing, they're not "sad" stories, they just have a sort of heaviness sometimes). I love the art, personally. Very good collection of stories.

Most of the boys look like girls. (Scrach that, all manga/anime boys look like girls) But these boys really look like girls. No maybe it's not that, the hair make is too long. (That's not fair, they can have their hair as long as they want, how sexist of me against men) Because their hair is so long it makes them look kind of like girls. Yeah that's it. Other than that I only liked the shounen-ai (Only like that that anyway) The stories were adorable!

What can I say for such a spectacular work by a very skillful mangaka...
This manga though a bit later, still is outstanding as her other recent works...
The stories touched me deeply...the feelings, emotions I felt can't be described through words alone(well, partly because I'm not that good in describing >_>) Like most of her works, the readers will get an air of bittersweet-ness and friendship...She has successfully portrayed the characters to be so realistic and full of life and emotions...I'm particularly fond of "Blue Cat's Tunnel" ;D
I recommend this manga or infact any manga by her..whether you may be a shoujo fan or more of a yaoi person or maybe a shounen fan xD..and I'm a shoujo fan btw and after reading her works, I wouldn't mind reading more shounen-ai after this xD I've had a bad impression on shounen-ai before, well not anymore now!
Kudos to Yumeka Sumomo!

For some reason these stories are not just your average shounen ai, it's filled with turbulent and some warped emotions but it's what makes them all a great read.

The art in this is very beautiful and gentle. Yumeka Sumomo’s stories always have this very soft, fragile feeling to them and they get better and better with years.
