The stories were all very heartwarming and nicely written. I really liked Story Three, and Two because they were really heartwarming, and I liked how story three showed the building tension from the two "siblings" living under the same roof and the idea about forbidden love. However, story four took the cake, literally. It is really pretty erotic and slightly perverted, without being overly graphic. I really wish these were not one shots though, but actually many more volumes. .

i mean the first one was dumb, the second academically challenged and the fourth was just plain innocent and gluttony. makes sense that my favorite story was the third smile the girl was mature and the sexual tension and frustration was just delicious and of course the unrequinted love theme was there, which of course i love xD about the second story by the way i kindda didnt got the bishie i thought he was the cool type he turned out to be a lecher~ so therefore my favorite is in the fourth bishie.. i like manly-cute types, just yum.
