First of all, Seika is not 12 or 13 years old. If you read the releases properly, you'll be able to read in a chapter somewhere that Seika is 16 or so. Also, this manga is not creepy at all. It expresses Akiharu's thoughts, and... well, we can say that he is mentally underdeveloped since he was stuck inside painting for many years of his life. Many artists use different kinds of methods on how to be able to know/feel what their subject is feeling to be able to express it properly on canvas. It just so happens that Akiharu needs to touch Seika, but it's not like he's taking advantage of her. It's a mutual thing.

As far as art goes, I think it's very pleasing to the eyes. It also matches the story very well. I've never read a manga like this before, so I think it's pretty original--- plot-wise. The characters are well-made too, each character can stand on its own and has their own personalities. All in all, bias aside, I think this manga is a good read. It only has 6 chapters, but it's definitely worth the read. It's not creepy at all.

I thought the story was alright, and the first chapter had a lot more depth than the ones that followed it. I'd give it a 9 because i really enjoyed the first chapter, even if the next ones didn't excite me as much. and i kind like the artwork. dunno why. also, to clear things up about a comment made by ChiirokoChan, the girl's in high school, not junior high. she's like around 16, probably? not 12. because i agree, 12-13 would have been really creepy.

At first this appears to be a seemingly innocent shoujo romance. Then it got creepy. I mean a grown man (20?) with a junior highschooler (12, 13?) just doesn't seem right. I tried to overlook it at first, as I know that the age gap wasn't really the main focus of this manga, but it started to bother me more and more. The psychological undertones in the story did not help either, it just made it creepier. The fact that the painter has a mentality of a fifteen year-old still does not justify the fact that he's lusting after a girl more than half his age (nice try, though).

Amazing. I didn't know shoujo could examine a character in depth like this. Normally, this is what I expect from josei, but apparently, shoujo has reached a new depth!

I didn't like the art. It didn't flow very smoothly(at least to me). And parts of the plot seemed a bit unbelievable for me(are there really parents who think this way? o____o) This manga blurred the lines between shoujo and josei. The content was just very interesting.

But the art doesn't fit it at some moments, and parts of the story felt lacking. It doesn't make for a very addictive read, but I would probably remember this oneshot. Pretty memorable.

Oh wow. This was really interesting, kinda a pity it was only 1 chapter. Being still a child inside, he thinks his thoughs are impure, dirty, and the manga really gives off that feeling. And that's also why it is scary, cause he is scared. He's ashamed, he struggles, till he understands at the end that there's nothing wrong with loving each other that way, and they "grow up together". x3;.

It made me blush even when you don't really "see" anything worth blushing xD
It's not creepy, it's sensual...and a person is molested when they don't like neither want to be touched. I mean, she isn't 4 years she knows what will happen (and that's quite clear) xD
Sorry, I' not trying to be rude but I can't stop thinking that the ones who can't see that are kids xD Because this was about growing up actually...And when he grew up was when he could understand that it wasn't perverted xD I mean, even her, who was younger, could understand that (well, his friend did say that he kept being a kid for special reasons).

I can't help but read this after reading what the user below me had to say xD
Seriously, it's not creepy considering this is a smut can just guess it by reading the description though there isn't in the genre..
I guess I'm pretty relieved that the art is not so's typical but luckily the body and all is still(mostly) in proportion..
I like how this manga have to do with art

I really like it because it was pretty interesting
to see what was in his mind. I wish there was more
though. I'll give it a 10 because it was good even though it
was short.

It's one of the best one-shots I've ever read!

I adore mangas like this.. It never cease to amaze how some mangaka explores the fragility of human minds..and be so..realistic!
I think it also relates to fetishes as well...this oneshot reminds me of the psychological plots in DOLL: IC in a Doll..
