This was a volume of three short stories. I enjoyed it. The second story, "That Sweet Organ Song" was super touching. And I really liked the last one, "The Easy Life" because it was realistic. It was nice to see a relationship not be so perfect in a shojo manga for once.If you're a shojo fan and want a quick easy read, I'm sure you'll enjoy this collection of short stories. Hinako Ashihara's art is very similar to Chika Umino's, so if you're a fan of shojo and her, you'll enjoy this :)
[Series Length: 1 volume / Read: volume 1]A compilation of romance short stories, although they vary wildly in tone ("SOS" involves obsession, sexual assault and even suicide; "That Sweet Organ Song" is a bittersweet love story set in 1920s Japan right before a tragic earthquake; "The Easy Life" deals with a more conventional high school romance). I particularly enjoyed the second story.
I liked this collection of one-shots a lot more the second time I read. Ashihara-sensei has such a cute-sy drawing style! I think I liked the stories more now because they do have a more mature side of them (even if they are still cute) than the stories I used to read back in 2012, and I couldn't appreciate the stories like the beautiful, soul-touching tales they were.Read for the first time in 2012.Re-read: May, 2014; June, 2016.
The best one happens to be the saddest, that sweet organ song. SOS is the second best
These stories had some unexpectedly serious elements, like date rape. Still, it's nice to have something on offer that isn't a twenty-volume series.
A book of short stories. True to life romances. One of them actually made me cry.
