I like the first story. I think the mangaka wants an escape from the usual yaoi plot (best friend love stuff) but idk it's kinda predictable in a certain level.
The second story was idk. Ridiculous, I guess? I don't really get the gist of the story lol.
The third one is my fave <3
The fourth story isn't likable. I mean, doesn't that count as sexual harrassment?
The fifth story was supposed to be normal. Normal in the manga world. I don't like how Tomo slapped Yukihiro. Because, my dear friends, if someone doesn't believe you or is insecure about your feelings, you reassure them and NOT slap or rant at them. Be gentle to the person you most love, always.

1) i actually liked the first one most of all. (Spoilers!!!)
Two best friends are in love with the same guy. The ending left me wondering what will happen to their friendship once the uke chooses who to be with.

The first story was bad, it will have been better if he was in love with his best friend i would have like it then !the seconde story was stupid too !!

but the 3th one was really good !! totally my stilml, i was really in the story and having heart beat with them haha i really recommande this one !!

the forth one was'nt bad, but if it could have been a little longer i would have really like it biggrin

the 5th one had a weird art, all the other had a realllyyyyy beautiful art, this one was'nt bad but it's like they had bit head, and looots of haire so it was kind of weird, but the story was okay..

Seriously, what i thought is:

1st. Ridiculous
2nd. Weird, but tolerable.
3rd. Nice! Good! Sweet and Cute! in other words, worthy to be read! ♥
4th. Quite fast, but pretty good! smile even though maybe the plot is 'too much'. peace
5th. ...simply ridiculous?!

So, i will give:

10 for 3rd story,
8 for 4th,
5-6 for 1st and 2nd,
5 for 5th.

Total: 6.8
but because i think that's no fair, i will give 7. biggrin

I agree with most of the comments about the classification of the stories. Maybe I would praise a little bit more the last two stories. It's not so bad in my opinion, specially the fourth one,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
even though it's true it surprised me a bit to discover that Haruno was in love with Uenaga since the beginning because there are no clue of that before he says it.

But I just wanted to add some comments on the character's development, cause it's one of the good points of Tenzen-sensei. She really knows how to create a subtle ambiance where every detail is important, could it be an attitude, a word, or a thought. Her characters always feels realistic and credible most of the time. Their inner thoughts and their evolution in the stories are always well presented, making them endearing and helping us to enter their world very quickly, even for oneshots.

I love how in this series the characters are struggling with their feelings, it feels like to be back in my teens. And the art is really good, I like how her characters are very expressive and how she draws emotions. But it's true the art of the last story is different and not as good as the other ones.

So it's a good read to pass the time, not so memorable but entertaining and sweet.

The first story was ok. The second one was sweet. The third one was really good, I liked it a lot. The fourth was ok. The last was simply bad. Even the art was bad.. is it really from the same mangaka? @@ This gets a 7 from me because of the 3rd story.

Sweet, Briefly Satisfying. Read 1 and 3...

...if you're just wanting to quickly check out Tenzen-Sensei!

The first chapter and the third chapter are the most captivating. There is a nice little 'full circle' in the Green story and both are touchingly done, very sweet. Konoda is fabulous! I love his quirky personality matched with the 'pure' object of his affection...

The rest of them are also sweet stories, but the art is less beautiful and the stories less comprehensive. Nothing too memorable.

have a hard time liking everything in the oneshots. 3) The Green that was Reflected in Your Eyes, has to be the best, as tanyaneko said <I thought 3 was good, 1 and 2 were decent, and 4 and 5 were simply ridiculous.> you'll definitly be entertained, but not enthralled.

I thought 3 was good, 1 and 2 were decent, and 4 and 5 were simply ridiculous. So yes, kind of all over the place in plot quality-- possibly worth it for the 3 okay stories.
