The first story and Summer time are pretty cute. It gives off a calm and somewhat sweet feeling. The characters are likeable, eventhough they did not have a proper ending, I think it's safe to say things will work out well for them. (8/10)

From rain: It feels incomplete, and I dislike like M-character. (5/10)
The last one picked up a topic I care for a lot and poorly resolved it. The art is also bad. I hope I will forget this one soon (3/10)

None of the stories, apart from the last one, had a proper ending to it. They are all just leave you wondering what the hell will happen afterwards. I would have preferred Sumertime to have 3 chapters instead of the first story, well that story could probably have a whole manga just based on that story. Anyways, it was was such an unsatisfactory read overall. They should have a category for these type of manga that have inconclusive endings.

These stories are kind of all over the place, so it's difficult to give them an overall rating. The first story is cute with very appealing art, but doesn't really have any ending to speak of. Sometimes no definite conclusion is ok, but not when it comes to fluff pieces.

The second story, from rain, is pretty good for a oneshot, though imperfect. I enjoyed it, but I think it needed at least ten more pages for character development.

Summertime I quite liked. I think we got to get a good feel for the characters within the short time we had because the mangaka was not trying to cram too much in. It may seem like a complicated, dramatic story, but really it's a very simple one. Nanami at first comes off a bit nutty, but once we get to know him we realize that he is quite rational.

The last story I did not enjoy at all. It felt forced and the characters were very flat. The art is not on the same level either. I assume this was an older oneshot. Definitely the worst of the bunch and did not fit in with the rest at all. Actually on that note, only the second two stories and the prequel to the first fit together. The first and last stories did not have the same feel.

Yukito is sort of adorable xD an idiot yes, but he has those really cute puppy-eyed moments. *Cough* anyways. The first story is cute and sort of weird too, but its good. The second story is psychological, pretty messed up, not a feel good story but very deep all the same. I enjoyed it despite its bitter quality. Third story is sweet ^^ had a bitter quality when the past is brought up but alls well that ends well as they say. Final story is amusing xD loved it haha. I definitely have a thing for sadistic teachers.

The only reason I read this is because I saw the cover and it looked cute. I thought it was a mistake until the last story. Finally! It was very cute. All the other stories were sad and didn't have a solid ending.

the stories seem like they aren't finished. even oneshots usually have some kind of conclusion. the first story took up 3chapters and still made no progress! and then throw in a handful of depression with the one sad story placed right in the middle.

A manga containing 3-4, depending how you look at it, love stories. Most of the characters are not very likable and the art is quite poor. If I had bought it rather than read the scanlation I would have wanted my money back. It's certainly not work the room on my hard drive.
