From Storm in Heaven:

This volume contains two parts, Bus Hashiru and Nanairo Sekai. Bus Hashiru is a collection of five short stories centered around bus stops. In all your encounters with strangers that take place there, isn't there a chance you might discover something you hadn't had before...? A new take on life, or a lost love - nothing is beyond you.

#1: Sky-Winding Bus Stop
(Karamagari Teiryuujo)

A salesman disinterested in his job meets a high school girl and after chatting with her, his viewpoint about his job changes...

#2: Sakura Street Bus Stop
(Sakurachou Teiryuujo)

A day before graduating from high school, Hikaru confessed her love to Makihara-sensei, the Biology teacher of their school. She promised to meet him at the bus stop after she graduates from college and that she'll marry him then. Five years have passed by since then...

#3: Wasurena Hill Bus Stop
(Wasurenagaoka Teiryuujo)

Yuka gets a postcard from her high school crush informing her of his marriage. She recollects how she couldn't even face him directly and confess her true feelings back then...

#4: Weather Forecast (Tenki Yomi)
His weather prediction is often wrong. He repeatedly fails his exams. But still, in his despair-filled life, there's someone who'll wait for him at the bus stop on rainy days...

#5: Dudleya Road (Dudleya no Michi)
A boy loved a girl of his neighbouring country. Only a road connected both the countries and a bus ran on it. One day, the two countries started fighting and a war was impending. The bus stopped running between their countries and the connecting road was demolished. Can the two lovers' connected hearts bridge the gap between their nations?

#6: The Glasses Thief (Megane Dorobou)
see Nanairo Sekai

#7: Adult-Uniform (Otona no Seifuku)
see Nanairo Sekai

I am just absolutely in love with her artwork. It takes my breath away.
Nothing else matters. xD
But of course the stories are also pretty good (my favorites are 1 and 5, and the two Nanairo Sekai stories.)
Give it a try!!

Up to this point this series was wrongfully tagged as "Shoujo", it's not shoujo, it's seinen perhaps that's why you felt about the story the way you felt. the author under the name SAHARA Mizu writes only seinen works.

Personally I loved this little collection of one shots.

These are short stories not to be trifled with, every page is so carefully planned without throwing anything in your face and I have no idea how this author can make these short stories contain so much with so little space. I'm a bit beyond impressed to be honest. I'm very glad I had this recommended to me. Incredible, just incredible. And that's just the opinion on the stories, the art is good but that's usually a minor point for me and it is here too. But pretty nonetheless.

The art is better than the stories...

For sure, the ideas behind her stories range from decent to quite good and in Bus Hashiru, the themes are also quite interesting. However, the problem is that her stories(BL or otherwise) sometimes suffer from a lack of depth and can sometimes be far too simple. Though I must say that Hashiru was a bit better than some of her other stories.

In this mangaka's case, the artwork actually breathes quite a bit of life into the characters as well as the plot, adding a touch of gentleness to the story. Yes, she is a mangaka who could be quite promising should her style mature further in the future, though she doesn't as of yet deserve any sort of crowning mantle.

I'm amazed at how close you can get to the characters feelings in such a short amount of time. The romance may not be blazing, but apparent in the gestures. Really heartwarming. There is not that you can exactly use to describe why they are such good stories...

This isn't my cup of tea at all. The stories are short, and very simple. There's no plot or continuity that I could discern. Perhaps my sensitivities aren't properly attuned to appreciate this genre, but I didn't notice any romance, or even much character interaction. Most exchanges are very short, and the rest of the time is filled with light introspection.

Bus Hashiru has no stories that make you think "Masterpiece!" or that have amazing, never-before-seen plotlines. But it's still great. You just feel so... good, I guess, after reading it. It's happy, and nice, and there's very little angst. A nice, enjoyable read.

The art is simple and I think it certainly works for the stories well enough.
The stories, like the art, are simple and sweet, and in my opinion, they make you think.
I wouldn't recommend it to just anyone, because not everyone can understand this manga.

(Now if only I could find Nanairo Sekai).

Enthralling collection of oneshots

Finespun story-telling, exquisite artwork and likable characters makes this stick with you long afterwards. It sparked various emotions in me, some which I just can't describe. I like how the author communicates the story to us in a subtle, understated way. I highly recommend that you read the side-story as well.

Really, that's all there is to say. They're just really... Nice. I can't find the words to describe it. Nice is all that comes to mind. The stories just leave such a feeling after reading them. I really enjoyed it, although they were short. This is really what Slice of Life manga are made of. Heartwarming stories.
If you liked Hoshi no Koe, you'll probably like this, and vice versa.
