Collection of 5 stories:

1) Romantic Beauty
Since she's moving to a different town due to her dad's job, Yuka decides to confess to the popular Takigawa-kun during the Junior High graduation—only to be rejected and called a "fatso" in front of everyone! A humiliated Yuka becomes determined to turn herself into someone Takigawa will notice so she can realize her dream of having her first time with him. However, when a completely transformed Yuka goes back to her old home town for a school reunion, the person who calls out to her is...?!

2) The Queen and Her Slave
After drinking the night before, Ai wakes up naked with a stranger in her bed and no memory of how they got that way! She learns that not only has she lost her virginity but it's... to a sixteen-year-old high school boy?! When the young, but handsome Madoka offers to be her slave, Ai accepts and becomes his "queen"—much to the envy of her friends. But is there more than just a master-servant relationship here...?

3) Pure Love, Forbidden Love
Kazuko treasures her fond memories of her cousin and first love, Ryo. When she transfers to his school after being apart from him for 10 years, she races to reunite with the prince from her childhood—only to find him with one of his many "sex friends" in the student council room! It seems the boy Kazuko remembers as being so gentle and caring has changed! Or has he...?

4) The Days When I Yearn For Love
Mochida likes Aoyama but has a hard time speaking to him normally. Because her class recently changed seats, she now sits next to Aoyama. Will she be able to open up to him before they change seats again?

5) The Warmth of Your Fingertips
While on the train, Yuna's classmate Yuasa protected her from a pervert. Yuna felt really happy but lost her chance to thank him. Although he is a quiet guy and may look angry, he continues to protect her each time on the train. Is there something more to his actions?

I liked all of the stories. They were sappy and smutty enough for my taste. It was a bonus that none of the heroines annoyed me. The first story did stand out the most for me though. I'm honestly writing this so that I can tell you guys about the little extra in the end where the mangaka talks about herself. It had the accurate shoujo girl contacts biggrin

I felt eww when it came to the sex scenes, not realistic, looks awkward...first story.
Second story is what da heck like some fantasy world where you meet a nice stranger have sex and fall in love @.@ unrealistic, in the real world, get ready to be sold to the sex market muaha
Uwah third one thank goodness this is just 30 pages of crazy cousin love, oh it's not so intense that I can still endure till the end, my my once again having incest or relative love relationship is totally bad, out of the question no good, family line too close!
Ok sweet the fourth story, girl look kinda blur and dumb == ish, like a Barbie doll~
Ok...another ok story fifth one

Like this one, even you can guess how the end will be. I really hate that Takigawa guy, how could he tell such gross words to a girl who confessed to him wholeheartedly? And when that girl became very beautiful and he didn't realize who she was, he suddenly asked her name and told her such trashy flattery.

You will absolutely know who the main girl would end up with, but still, just read it if you have some spare time. It's still good, plus, the story does not go as fast as other mushy shoujo mangas which put the same plot.

Good Compilation

This is definitely a solid compilation of shoujo stories. Two great ones, one good one and two duds (in my opinion). Fans of one-shots should check it out, just because the good outweighs the bad.

"Romantic Beauty" is a cute and funny story. Like some other reviewers, I found the girl to be a bit annoying in the way she continues to idolize the guy who was such an ass to her. But hey, let's all admit it. Sometimes we've all made some pretty bad choices in love. So I tried to cut her some slack. And the ending turns out to be really solid and is worth sticking it out for.

"The Queen and Her Slave" kind of fell short of its own synopsis, if you ask me. It was very cute and the couple worked well together... but there was surprisingly little "master and slave" for a story presumably built around that premise. Also, the girl handled the climax portion of the story really badly.

"Pure Love, Forbidden Love" was... weird. I'm not sure I liked this one much. The guy was... creepy. I'm not sure how else to describe him. I just don't go for guys who are so smarmy and then turn on a dime. Sorry, I'm not buying it, buddy... You're still a creep.

"The Days When I Yearn For Love" was a really cute classroom romance. As an older manga reader, I always like it when a school romance is done well enough to bring me back to my own school days... and this one is a good one for that.

"The Warmth of Your Fingertips" fell prey to not-enough-happening and a cliche climax that even made me groan a bit. Definitely not the best in this volume, though I at least enjoyed it more than the third story.

Love it, though I do have a problem with girl that still 'love' someone even though that someone told her to 'go die' because she is fat/ugly! Jee, what happens to self-esteem? It would make the story so much better if he didn't reject her that nastily, and then she wants to transform herself to gain his attention...

YAY!!! Another release came out Doumoto Nao and Wata Nobu are some of my ABSOLUTE favorite mangakas, their work is extremely cute, simple, easy to follow, and they have the cutest story lines, most I can relate to.
Anyhow, I reccomend it, sure if you read dark manga all the time you could call say you have to have an acquired taste for this one but I don't think readers will be dissapointed. Enjoy!!! <3

It's good one shot but when I hit the last page and saw "Romantic Beauty - The End" I was like WTFconfused That's all?!?!

It's the shortest One shot I've read so far. Even if there are shorter ones out there, this one just feels incomplete.

it was pretty good if you ask me, I loved how the emotions in this manga all seemed real somehow. It feels like a realistic story of something that could actually happen. I reccomend it..

It's cute! However, there's no depth. Needs some development more than just simple 1 series. I like the way the author describes how the heroine feels after she becomes beautiful. She's a beauty but lack confidence and yes, it's cute and I hope there's something more. Don't be deceive by the smut genre it has. It's far from smutty believe me
