Reading this outstanding manga reminded me of one of Jodie Foster's early movies, the little girl who lived down the lane. There is a pungent erieness to this love story between two young teens. This manga for all of its dark undercurrents (and there are many) is a very hopeful and idealistic narrative. The art work is solid although not to the level of 5 Centimeters Per Second anything more pretty would end up distracting us from a story that weaves through themes of school bullying, single parent households, poverty, and the meaning of friendship and love.

an amazing clean one shot romance
artwork smooth as well
and very relatable embarrassing moments
the guy moved in with the girl, that's the highlight spoiler.

This gorgeous manga features beautiful artwork and a powerfully emotional story-line about young love and lost innocence. It reminds me tremendously of one of my favorite mangas: *5 Centimeters per Second* with that perfect blend of sweetness and sorrow.
