This book of one-shots will make you fantasize romance and how sweet it can be.

It makes you think how simple and sincere people are back then with giving letters and conveying their feelings.

I really like both of the volumes in this series. The stories were great and rather unique. They weren't sappy either, which gets very annoying very fast in shoujo manga. I don't see why a lot of people had problems with the art. I absolutely loved it. A lot of shoujo art looks very cookie-cutter. The heaviness of the lines appealed to me straight away. Also, I was pleased with the male protagonists. Even if their females are marginally different, shoujo mangas seem to keep the same long-haired, emotionless, "cool" jerks. The guys in Koibumi Biyori pleasantly surprised me.

Each story is just beautiful, well thought out and executed, some may have qualms about the art but even so you are overcome with a deep liking for the characters and the situation. I love it because it has so much soulful movement, each character feels and breathes like a real person, I don't know why but I feel that this is all down to the stories and the way they have been presented that makes these stories so lovely and calming to read. Its these kinds of stories that allows you to see the holes in the more clichéd and modern manga that is produced in the masses and leaves the reader feeling cold and angry that they wasted their time. You certainly won't be wasting the your time if you read this. Appreciate it because stories like these told in this way are hard to come by.

It was good. Some stories were super cute and made me feel warm and fuzzy, some made me laugh. I love how the guys are as fleshed out as the girls. It's not sappy either despite the title.

Art is ok... not her best since it's one of the early works but still, the characters look pretty at some angles.

SO CUTE! If you want to look for some fluffy oneshots with original, interesting plots, then this is it!!

Its a good read even though George Asakura's art is one I cant help complaining about since I am a fan Lee Nicky and Souryo Fuyumi's art. But her ideas are pretty innovative. However, in the last story of this series, she has outdone herself, beautiful shades and carefully drawn than usual lines, her final heroine may be her most prettiest heroine ... biggrin

some of the best short stories I've read in mangas! I agree, the art isn't the best, it really put me off at first, but after reading a few stories I found it endearing, charming.

This is very...strange. I bought the second volume, because I like shoujo, and the volume was thick. (more bang for your buck) The art in this isn't very good. Towards the end it begins to improve though. Anyway, what I thought of this: It's different and interesting.

edit: After reading the first book I've starting to really like this series. It's fresh, because every other story or so has a male protagonist which is rare in shoujo. Definitely worth picking up.
