Cute romance.

An episodic manga containing short stories about young couples and their cute & awkward moments.
The short stories are mostly quite good. None of them are perfect, but there's something to be said for having ~10 short stories in two volumes, rather than a single shoujo romance moving at a snail's pace.

The one story I didn't like was c6-7, "Limited Girlfriend":
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
It begins with a boy's one-sided crush on a girl who doesn't know him, and somehow turns into mutual love in the span of a few hours.

If the timespan hadn't been so short, I would've been okay with this. But it wasn't, so the male protagonist came across as totally pushy / invasive. Despite the cute presentation, that didn't look like romance to me, but rather like "how can I get into her pants ASAP?".

Also, the whole "all introverts are just lonely" shtick is just... ugh.

yes, especially chapter 3 is my favourite.
I love how the author makes a one big panel just to take a look at the heroine(s) cuteness...
And the art is suited for the story.

Really good for those who want to take a break from deep thought stories...

Very cute

From the 1st two chapters, it's just two silly kid getting together and experiencing dating. It's very, very cute. Not much substance if you want action or a deep story, but if you're just looking for two shy idiots falling in love, it's absolute charming read.

Simple art and loveable character. Hopefully someone pick it up (not hard to edit nor translate).
