Spoiler (highlight to view)
The first story was a little unrealistic. So you're current lover and your ex-lover are related. So what? It's not like he was still in love with his ex-lover. Even though there weren't any corny lines, I wish the drama could've been more realistic. More over, how Chris knew about Atsushi, wasn't explained. Graham talked about him but that was basically it, right? How did he know what Atsushi looked like..etc etc. It was a bit confusing. But oh well, the ending was all sweet and bubbly so it was still worth the shot.

The second story was my favorite! And the extra was such a treat. Just the kind of plot I like to read before going to bed. Predictable yet still keeps me interested. I love plots where the couple works together. It's really cute. Even though you always end up with that cliche drama. Still, nice ending.

The other stories were average..not that memorable. I've read Escape seperately before so I don't wanna comment on that here. Anyway, I love this author's art. You could actually see how it evolved in time.

Mildy Intriguing; Not the Best of Fuwa

The whole collection is just comm-ce comm-ca. I never really fell in love with any of the characters, but I didn't skip past them either.

Proof of Love: I like that Fuwa-sensei makes her characters 'human.' The perspective of an affair is two-sided, not just one person's fault, was briefly touched on.

Kiss and Cry & One Million Kisses: Kinda lack luster. Didn't make much a difference to my intellect or emotions. The extra was cute just because I liked the older boss softening up when he sees such tender, everyday caring love.

Gokujou no Kiss (Supreme Kiss): This was the least liked of all of them for me. Sugano was just so annoying with his wimpiness.

Escape: This one had the most potential in the dramatic story and intriging characters and it also held the best art. There is a particularly well drawn 'ominous seme' in this one shot. It seemed like the reader was dropped in mid-chapter and dropped-out mid-chapter, though. It left me frustrated because the back stories of these characters was actually wanted...i cared for them more than any of the other stories.

Without You: This was a short sweet one about loving someone for who they are and trusting in that love. Pretty cute, but again, only so-so.

Oh, Chris your jaw is so very square.

The art in this is really not my thing. Honestly I liked her art better in 1999. It's like her style has actually morphed into something I like less, which is a pity because I hold no issue with her works otherwise.

The story here is about communication, and how important it can be. People aren't the brightest, they won't always know what you are thinking no matter how much you love them. An interesting, if not all that memorable, read.
