I took the time to immerse myself in the story, every word said and the art, and it wasn't a waste of time at all, it is absolutely splendid,

it almost felt like a tragedy story when she left the high school, but thank goodness she came back years later, and they(will somehow of course no matter what) encounter each other again, ahh a sigh of relief, my imagination of me feeling sad is all gone~

Oh so beautiful... It is making me think, that Takagi had some unrequied love as well. Ningyo ga Fuchi, Gakuma no utsukushimi... I can see her sadness ^___^ and I love it and that is so cruel and so so beautiful...

I have been reading her works, and I really enjoy them! They don't drag (mostly because a lot are on the shorter/one-shot side) and there's a lot of substance to them. I just wish the ending more than hinted at something ahhh~!!! Then it would have been perfect. Except it's a bit nice they left it off like that, because it continues with the wistful-like atmosphere of the whole one-shot.

I thought it was a beautiful one shot and it was like a nice twist of the little mermaid. It had a nice flow to it and the art was beautiful. Although it was open ended I believe they ended up together

The story was sweet and all but I couldn't find myself feeling sorry for the girl especially near the end when she

tried to lure his brother to the pool so that they could die together. It was extremely selfish to me. I think I remember in the original mermaid story, the mermaid had a choice to kill the one she loved but chose not to because she loved him too much.
I'm also glad that she didn't rebound to Kou. That would have made everything about her love for his brother look superficial.

I loved it. It was so fking beautiful. For me, it didn't feel incomplete or something that should have kept going. It kinda blended into the time. To mangas who are like enjoying a serene scenery. lol I don' t know, it would make more sense if I knew how to describe how I felt. ahaha

Although I was confused at first, I really loved it when I read it the second time to get the context and what happened. Let me start off with the art... as usual, it's beautiful. I love Takagi-sensei's art, it's simply stunning.

The story, although used many times, I absolutely adored. It's a new take on it through swimming and such. I loved it. And although it's shoujo,

I loved how she didn't end up with him in the end. Well, it leaves it open, but I loved how it doesn't have to be set on he/she getting her/him. I loved the ending, and their relationship. It was adorable, although it was so... "cutesy" lacking. It had depth and real emotions.
