Budding Mangaka

I actually quite like this. It's rough, and kind of choppy at times, but quite entertaining nonetheless. It's nice to see that Moegi-sensei dabbled in different settings and characterizations before finding her grove: yankee ukes. Her later works, especially shinobeba koi, are absolutely adorable.
The only story which gave me an upset stomach was 4) "Fly Straight to the Sky". That is so because it

fits in very nicely with the manga industry’s demand of trash + no consent + blame the victim for provoking the sexual assault + both of them start going out with each other

Screams rookie's vibe

I was not surprised at all to learn that this collection consists of the mangaka's earliest works in her career; it shows and very obviously so. All stories are very rushed and often don't make a lot of sense in terms of character development and plot progression. First story suffers the hardest from this pattern; it's painfully dull and illogical. The three following it are generally a lot more tolerable though, and could even be charming at times despite their flaws. They have more heart put into them it would seem, which we all have seen sensei capable of in her more recent work.

First and third - good; second and fourth - mediocre

I prefer it when love stories (straight, BL or GL) portray how romance is just one part of life, and that there are plenty of things apart from sex and love that a person needs and wants in order to become a more fulfilled individual. It's often impossible for me to take romances seriously because the characters seem like actors acting out love dramas, instead of people living their lives. This is especially prevalent, though understandably so, in BL and GL.

The first and third stories do what I'd really like to see more of: portray couples with a passion for something other than each other, with the relationship and its ups and downs being reflected in their performance pertaining to those passions. Not to mention that the first story in particular is heaps of fun: the bickering is no end of amusing, their straight best friend is amazing, and their non-traditional character designs (no obvious 'seme' or 'uke' here!) were very refreshing. The third was more typical, but still quite nice because of the track-and-field background of the characters' initial connection.

The second and fourth stories, though, were cliché and boring -- particularly the second, since the fourth was at least sweet. Leaves me in quite the dilemma as to rating...

The last story

I wasn't really that into the first stories, not that they were bad, but they weren't anything above average.
The last story, though, was somehow really good. I wish I was better at analysis so I could explain why, but it really suck out to me. It's subtle, and felt realistic. Beautifully done.

These one-shots or short stories are just sooooooooo short!!! They are quite simple yet well-written and drawn. I really wished that each one of them had its own dedicated volume. The endings for most of them felt incomplete, but it also didn't leave you hanging. I recommend this to people who are into light and quick reads.

And the inside art is better than the cover lol

great quick read

I guess I'll be the first one to comment on this
I thought the story, as short as it may be, was pretty unique and interesting. Not to mention that the characters were interesting and funny themselves (gotta love bickering love).
Also I really like goatees lol
I wouldn't call this series a favorite or anything, but I definately liked it a lot and I'd say it's pretty memorable. The art was a bit wonky at times, but I find this kind of style really refreshing tbh. I think it could've been a lot better if the ending had been more solid, I was actually really confused and had to go check if it was still ongoing or not.
anyway, I liked it, thought it was worth the quick read.
