From Aerandria Scans:

Akagi Erika is a classical literature teacher at a high school. One day, she scolds a male student, Usami Rento, for wearing perfume to school. However, she later finds out that the sweet scent isnít from perfume but from incense thatís soaked into the kimono he wears, for Usami Rento is actually a famous kabuki actor playing female roles. Erika watches a performance of Usamiís out of curiosity, and finds herself gradually drawn to this strange student...

I consider this a very nice work, since I love student-teacher relationships. The fact that the teacher is a female for once, not the usual - hot guy every girl in the class has a crush on- is far more appealing than most shoujo clishe stories.
All in all: art, story, character development (yea, imagine that, it actually has that, the mangaka succeeded this in just an oneshot) make a very nice blend, so give it a try.

The story was cute, nothing exceptional or very impactful but still cute. Both main characters were nicely characterized for such a short work and their relationship progressed nicely. A nice quick read that I'd recommend!

6/10- Liked it

a light, sweet manga that is a quicky for those in need.
The only point i'd take off is that im not much of a sucker for older women so i thought i sortaa killed it a bit but, its got to be the best older female character relationship manga.

A fresh breeze....A new perspective...very refreshing from all the guy teacher and girl student kind of relationship smile
I always have a soft spot for teacherxstudent xD since Crossroad
This story is really sweet and cute in it's own way...and oh my, you know what? The teacher is cool haha...The art is just pretty decent for me...definitely not ugly but still haven't reach the level of pretty, in my opinion ;]
The story is just so refreshing....should give it a try since it's only a oneshot

Teacher-student is usually a subject I avoid, but there is the occasional story that intrigues me, and this is one of them. I enjoy it more with the female teacher and male student leads (and a thoughtful shoujo-manga perspective... that's important). It doesn't have the same sense of being a trite fangirl/fanboy's fantasy, compared to other teacher-student manga. It also helps that the female protagonist, in a "mature woman" role, has some intelligence and characteróyay! And I enjoyed the use of traditional literature and kabuki elements in this. They felt purposeful to the story, not just something thrown in for a gimmick or exotic appeal (like, oh, Backstage Prince)

It's still a bit difficult for me to see this as a believable situation in real life, but it's a sweet story otherwise. Definitely worth a try!
