I want to say that the Aromatic Bitters was slightly more enjoyable than Sakurazawa's other josei romances. The characters were given more time and varied experiences (though they aren't necessarily more likable) and the plot felt like it started at a better point and ended at a better point than the Angel series. The art in Aromatic Bitters is slightly more refined and crisper, but there is something to be said for Sakurazawa's watercolor craziness.
