Boring. I highly doubt I will remember any story after I'm done writing this comment. I honestly can't remember them right this second.

I gotta give some cred to the author though, she managed to produce something that reached the epitome of blandness and meh-ness. Rating is for what I can remember of the second story, I think it was quite alright.

The characterization are shallow as you can get and even though character development is supposed to happen, the passage of time and different settings, nothing happens.
The dialogues are also very run of the mill and just not expressive enough of any feeling, even love or lust. And the art is just stick figures and really awkward at places. Moreover, what really ticks me off is that there is very little flow in the story. Stuff just happens for no reasons at all.

The first glance at the drawing style already let's one think of a cute story, because the outlines are light and not edgy. It's a nice style and I liked it, yet there is room for improvement and in the beginning the characters looked on some panels a bit more buffy. But - Till the ending that imbalance vanishes and they look more refined, so I'm fine with it this way.

The storyline flows in a nice way, there isn't too much drama and nothing rushed. Although the dialogues sometimes made me read a page twice, the emotions have been clear and understandable. All in all, it's a light read and heartwarming story. If you look for something with depth this might not be the perfect pick, but then again it's only 4 chapters long and for this range pulled of in an interesting way.

October 11th, 2012, 9:21pm was a nice read, very sweet and simple but nothing more.
It didn't make my heart go "thump" or whatever, it's just probably something you read when you're bored...or to pass by your time. x3

It made me go "awww....". I found this quite cute, though it's not everyone's cup of tea. The art is rather cute and the plot is nothing really special to be honest.

Satoshi really had me wondering what he wanted in two chapters. One being friends with Miya and the other wanting a brother like Miya. Oh, Satoshi, sweetie, you need to make up your mind or else Miya won't know what you want. *cough*Of course, you want him as a lover instead.*cough*
