It's a very sweet story. However it shouldn't be a "one shot." There should be so much more to the story.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
It's like the story was cut off right at a good introduction at what was to come between them and the monsters after them.
So I believe this story should have continued.

don't know why, but this is the one shot i love the most. the story was cute and the guy isn't half bad either biggrin
wish there was more though..the first time i read it i was really frustrated that it was only a one shot.
i still keep reading it from time to time.
definitely worth the read

Awww, why is this only a one-shot? I want to know more! It was sweet and exciting in a very refreshing sort of way, and then it ended. I think this should become a full series, even if just a short one. It's a little cliche maybe but it's definitely too interesting not to continue!

Too short!! The art is ok, quite cute but could be better. Regrettably it was too short, otherwise I think it would be kind of good too despite the plot is indeed typical. Actually I really like Kotoko and I think she is very cute and pretty just that she's supposed to be a simple girl both appearance and mind. I especially love her smile, now that is what you call a heart-warming and day-brightening smile. I believe the one who is most suitable to be with Shin-kun must be Kotoko. Such a lovable girl biggrin

A great Oneshot that manages to set the stage for something bigger... Too bad this will never become serialized, and become a truly amazing manga.

Kotoko was the typical brainless-optimistic-kid-living-alone, it had lots of recycled elements, and the art was average. It's not bad but not amazing either.

i liked the character designs (especially the guy) and art, though i thought the girl would be drawn preetier..and the story more serious, but HAH the demons were little black chicks-- cute biggrin

This oneshot is cute. Actually most of the mangas by this author are cute lolz. As for this manhwa, it has the supernatural element (ghosts and what-not) and the affection btween the main characters is just sweet. So if u're looking for a light-hearted, somewhat sad short story, this is the oneshot for you.
