They were interesting but I found the Yakuza chapters a little disturbing. How can your own father make the daughter of his mistress his mistress after his mistress died especially when she happens to be good friends with his own son who is also around her age. As a father he betrayed his own son and don't blame the protagonist one bit for feeling the way he does.

I really liked the crows one, platform and the theater one was great too. But the other ones were good too. I didn´t like Hang that much, but whatever. Beautiful art. The best story was definetely the crows, the girl and the yakuza. Soooo sad and happy at the same time.

I liked it more then Eden, from this author too.

It's not bad.

I've only read the first volume, but I think I've got the general gist of this manga. Firstly, I have to say that I absolutely despise the "Because You're Definitely a Cute Girl" story. It's a terrible story, and I absolutely hate the last part. I could probably go into a rant on this, but I'll focus on the good parts.

I liked "The Crows, the Girl, and the Yakuza". It was nice and satisfying, in a way. I don't care that it's a little mediocre in comparison to his other stories; it's got a certain charm to it that the other stories didn't have.

I also liked the last story, but then again, it appears that most everyone did. The content of the story is definitely very interesting, and it's not matter that's been breached by many, I think, giving the story a certain flair.

I wouldn't mind reading the second part to this, but I just hope it won't be like that "because" story, which was just total fantasy bullshit.

/*EDIT. So I've finally read the second volume, and I admit, "Hang" wasn't really to my taste. "High School Girl 2000" wasn't too bad, and it was kinda funny. But the story that caught my eye in the second volume was "Platform". It was very different from what I was expecting. A bit of a twist on the whole i've-loved-you-since-i-was-little cliche. As always, Endo incorporates the nitty gritty sex scenes in, so don't be surprised at that. The ending was amazing though. The storytelling for this oneshot was amazing.

As with any collection of short stories you are going to react to eat story differently. I was tempted to rate the entire collection a 10 just for the inclusion of "For Those of Us Who Don't Believe in God",which I thought was phenomanal, however I really should evaluate the collection as a whole. Which is not to say that the other stories are bad, though I thought "Hang" was kind of mediocre and "Boys Don't Cry" was so short it hardly counts as a story.

I also very much enjoyed "Platform". And though it was kind of quirky and a bit short, "High School Girl 2000" really spoke to me. Maybe that's a sign that I'm getting older...

The remaining two, "The Crows, the Girl, and the Yakuza" and "Because You're Definitely a Cute Girl" fall somewhere in the middle. They were enjoyable enough, but they can't carry the collection on their own.

But there is enough good here that I can't help but recommend this collection.

Personal favourite...

& I own both books, so...
Definitely depends on your taste, but for me this was a perfect example of the seinen genre. There's smut, there's gore, heartrending despair, blackest comedy, a tip of the hat to "yaoi" , and philosophy of life that almost exactly matches my own (except I have less smut and gore - heh).

For the record, I'm female and about 40% or my reading list is BL(yaoi/shounen-ai) - so I'm not kidding when I say this series is something special.

Endo Short Stories

Rating: 8.8 / 10.0
2 of the stories were truly great. The art made the feeling perfect. It's suited the stories so well...
The other stories weren't bad, but not great either. Still, I'd recommend it, the whole thing. I really enjoyed endo short stories.
I love stories that give the feeling as this one gave. (won't spoil~)

For Those of Us Who Don't Believe in God was my favorite. The other stories were good as well.
I'll rate each:
Boys Don't Cry- 7
The Crows, the Girl and the Yakuza: 8
Because She's a Sweet Girl- 7.8
For Those of Us Who Don't Believe in God- 9.5
Hang- 7.5
High School Girl 2000- 7
Platform- 8.5

I'll rate it 8.5

The genre seinen is very rough and cold (both content and art), therefore it is seldom and harder for me to read. But truthfully, they bring material to brood over, contrary to shoujo and shounen.

Endo Short Stories contains the same dark aura as all seinen, yet I must admit his works are just a class better then the rest.
Often, reading this genre feels interminable and long, but regardless of length, these stories keep you wishing for Endo to tell you further.

(I feel like sending Mr. Endo a "Thank You" letter, because I was able to read this.)

I just love endo's work, slightly wierd, slightly violent, slightly phlisophical but with a great big load of humor underneath.

These are all very good short stories. All worth reading and buying.

I've already bought the two volumes available in America.
