Hina (left) and Hana (right)

The story is about two high school girls. Hana, a small, quiet and cute girl. And Hina, a tall, cool part-time model. They fatefully meet when Hina enters a cute little shop that Hana works out, and then turns out to transfer to Hana’s school. The two girls slowly become friends, and eventually…something more.

The art is fairly nice. It looks the same as Morinaga’s other work. The only thing that bugged me was that Hana looked a bit TOO young that it sometimes took me out of the romance, otherwise the art was pretty solid.

There’s no appearance from any men whatsoever so it deserves full points on the Yuri scale.

It is short, as its only 19 chapters, I fully trust Morinaga Milk when it comes to my Shoujo-ai, I just wish it were longer.

So the style was fairly consistent with being a slow pace in realizing each others love, in addition to it being fairly light. It was an enjoyable read, I would almost put it in the “fluff” section but can’t due to it not quite being that either. I explain more in detail below, but there are spoilers.

So take a read, see if my rating is justified.

Art: 9/10

Yuri: 10/10

Overall: 6/10

SPOILERS BELOW. KIND OF. YEAH. DEFINITELY THERE IS
