From Moi-xRyu Scanlations:

1-3+extra) Every morning high-school student Nanami catches sight of this one surfer he secretly begins to admire. Incidentally, however, it is later on a certain day that they reunite in a classroom! Turns out that this one-year-older senpai, named Shuu, is in fact one who, while characteristically mature, is unsociable to the extent that he’s even notorious for being someone difficult to approach. Even so, for some reason, Nanami becomes the sole person that he can smile at and laugh with, over and over again… As they repeatedly spend more time together after school, by midsummer, Nanami finds himself receiving a kiss near the seaside?! And so, a story of dazzling first love ensues.

4-5) Kamatte Kawaii Hito
In order to overcome his debilitating fear of cats, Natsumi Hayato goes to visit a cat cafe. But could his reaction to one of the staff he meets there be even more difficult to conquer than his phobia?

I was in the mood for some happy love stories and that's exactly what I got - I couldn't be more pleased! I loved the artwork. It wasn't anything fancy, just clean detailed line work and shading so the scenery was just as lovely as the characters. Both stories were short and sweet. The characters meet and ultimately end up together. There was no real intense drama, which I was thankful for. They seemed like tender, simple stories about new relationships and the doubts people might have about the others' feelings, which I feel is a very relatable experience. Overall I loved the tone, drawings, and plots of these stories - I'm so glad I found this little gem

One of those rare stories where enjoyment is based on your personal mood when reading it. I thought it was really enjoyable slice of life type of romance. Not dramatic or with any action, you'll not even find any smut. But if like me you need a reprieve from that and insecure/stubborn ukes, this will be a peaceful read.

I liked it.. but I thought it could've been more 'polished'. Not only with the ocean metaphors but with the artstyle too.

And about the sex-scene, all I could see was haru and the ocean lol I guess I'm just really into the h2otp ship.

Read it for yourself and then decide whether or not it's good.

This was an excellent read! The characters were cute and funny, the seme wasn't a typical "cucumber cool" guy and the uke was a sensible lad. For such a short story, I was satisfied with the outcome.

I highly recommend it!

This really is a light-hearted relaxing story one could easily enjoy without too much brain power involved. The gentle air surrounding the whole settings also helped establish its appeal to some extent. I also appreciate the mangaka's attempt at being poetic, with the references to the ocean and all when writing about love making. I thought that was nice and almost smart, although it could use more refinement. The art is really good, I've officially been bought by this mangaka's art style. Btw, I really hope she would spill the beans about the other couple as well, like how she wanted to as stated in the atogaki (after words). This is a very promising start.
