I liked them, but they feel dark. Like you have an empty hole inside and these stories will leave the gape wider then before.
'You are what, you think" (Buddah), "You are what you eat", even if it's through the eyes and mind: Therefore I would not recommend this to myself or others.

1st story: About a woman who return to her hometown to stay at her parents house, because she's unemployed and probably can't pay her rent anymore (she quit her job, we don't know the reason). There, she meet an old neighbour who has become a man, but she doesn't seem to realize that he is interested in her, because she still sees him as the youngster he was.

2nd Story: About a a university student girl who's been ditching college, she's dating a man teacher at the cram school she used to go. The girl often pay visits to a classmate of her who's also been skipping classes, living with an older fellow. The first one try to convince the other she should do homeworks even if she doesn't go to school because they are assigned to work on a subject together. She tries to convince her to go back to school with her.

3rd story: Two high schools students dating, the guy brags about how he had sex with so-and-so and what positions did his ex's prefer, all that to his current girlfriend who doesn't seem to bother about the details. She gets pregnant after an unprotected intercourse. The two of them start living together, but the guy is a jerk and she'll come to realize it in the worst possible way, when she's about in her 7th month of pregnancy. Then time skip, she is now the mother of a teenage girl, working I don't know where and she became acquaintance with a man colleague.

Well that's all there is to say concerning these stories, it's really slice of life, so don't expect much to happen, it's nearly impossible not wanting more, or at least feel like having open endings, because that's what you'll get if you read it. Even for one shots, they are still too short and unsatisfying.
