It's only ~200 pages but even that is a waste of your time. Contrived doesn't even begin to describe this. Our heroine (if she can so be called) is an egotistic drama queen who spends the entirety of the short manga throwing herself a pity party and talking up her trite issue of being slow to speak as if it were some cosmic torture she were being subjected to. Endearing? No. Obnoxious? Most certainly.

Spoilers here regarding the ending, but who cares because this will save you the time:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The boy and girl decide to meet up to confirm they're not imagining everything (another contrivance here being that instead of this logically being one of the first ideas, they try some silly, incredibly out-of-the-box bullshit that doesn't even confirm simply because if they DID even mention meeting up first, the manga would be even shorter.) They meet at an airport, where the Angel of Death that lurks in the shadows of every shitty manga narrative, the Speeding Car, raises it's sharpened scythe to cut down life and love. Yes, out of nowhere, the meeting of our protagonists is cut short by a car accident with absolutely no foreshadowing, rhyme or reason to anything going on in the story. I'm sure the author thought when he was writing this that this scene would stand amongst the likes of Jack letting go of the door to save Rose, but to his chagrin should he by any sliver of chance read this review, it was hilariously NOT that. Further, every rule regarding the boy and girl's telepathic communication is entirely contrived to make this silly ending possible, with absolutely no bearing on the story prior other than facilitating that aforementioned contrivance regarding harebrained schemes to confirm the situation.

This is silly, melodramatic trash but fortunately, it's short so I probably spent more time writing this review, or warning, rather. Don't bother unless you want a giggle.

...the ending was very contrived, in my opinion. There was no purpose to it ending that way, other than "to be sad and deep". Like the author couldn't think of a way of ending it without tragedy. Anyways, if you like stories with a melancholic atmosphere, then you will like this a lot!

I personally enjoyed reading it until the ending. The story is very touching, and the ideas behind it are unique.

Yes. It's nice story... And I loved it! The characters and the plot, both are amazing and I want this will have a long series. Hiro-sensei is awesome to drawing the characters in the manga same as Another...
すごいです!もっと読 んでて欲しいです!

Really Good

The story is unique and makes you think of how our society is changing drastically because of technology. The concept is weird at first but I get the feeling the author is trying to point out. I think he was trying to say that things change. Like when I was little kid my friends used to come over to play video games but now we have the internet to play online now and it kind of makes me sad that things are like this now because we don't meet each other much anymore.

The story is unique and the ending was really good to end it. It a sad ending so people be warned but its a happy ending in a way because things work out for the best. I definitely recommend this manga because it's good and short so it will only take you like 30 minutes to finish.

;____________________; Oh gosh. I think if it had been just a little longer, I might have cried. This was such a beautiful manga... and such a tragic, happy, amazing, terrible one, all at the same time.

Although thanks to the rate technology is changing and advancing day by day, a story like this doesn't stand the test of time. Nonetheless this still is a great read. The art is gorgeous and detailed, scenes and dialogue are poignant, and the pacing is well-executed.

Although the idea of mind cellphones is ridiculous when you first hear about it, it is portrayed in a serious and mature manner. Kiyohara-sensei's artwork does an amazing job with imagery to show the character's loneliness.

This is definitely the better version of Otsuichi's story.

this is a wonderful story...beautifully developed characters and such a nice insight into things most of us struggle with, that feeling of being alone. this story beautifully paints this concept with the use of "inner cell phones" used as communication.

the pacing is great and you feel for the characters. if you've stumbled across this manga, PLEASE DO NOT MISS this opportunity to read it! it's only a few chapters that can take you less than a few hours but will leave you feeling happy after reading. beautiful art, characters, imagination...hope you enjoy it as much as i did. this will forever be a favorite of mine that i will reread again and again. smile

i want to cry my heart out.i read lots of stories about timid characters or such. but this one is soo real i mean the feelings in it. and the idea was marvelous. i found this when i was looking through tsuzuki setsuri's works and decided to read both without looking at summary nor rating anything. This is a shoujo you dont come across everday. It strikes you leaves you dumb. Definitely worth reading.

well somehow i had knew the end of the story before reading it, but regardless of everything i still found it a bizarre story - in a good way -. and i agree with the author otsuichi san that kiyohara sensei is a real artist with magnificent imagination.
