It's beautiful, but...

...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...

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.

I had read the translation of this short story a year ago when my friend gave me the collection of short stories. Back then, I didn't really glance at the author and thought it was made by an English author. Imagine my surprise when I found this manga! I read the first page, thinking...."I've read this before....where have I...." and then it hit me. I'd already read the short story!

Yeah, major sense of deja-vu. But I liked it. I still cried at the end, despite knowing the story. I think the art helped, like meganoloso said, since it had the dark undertones. This one also stayed true to the short story more....

The art is really good and I prefer it to the Tsuzuki Setsuri one. It is very detailed and sort of matches the dark undertones of the story. I really enjoyed the dialogue in the story and I like how it stayed true to the focus of the story (the relationship between the two people). The only thing is that it is a tragedy so, you know how that goes....
