A very, very lovely high school romance with just the right amount of angst that made my heart ache just so. Very sweet.

I especially loved how the two main characters both learn to look past each other's facades. My favorite moment was when Seryou told Shino that he was likable just the way he is. Isn't that the kind of thing everyone wants to hear? And it's the kind of thing that could be just cheesy if done badly (and I've read many, many examples of that sort of thing), but here it feels genuine. I suppose that is what separates good romance books/manga from bad ones - there's no denying that there are only a handful of romance patterns at best, but it really depends on what the author does with them. Anyway, my point is that this is a great example of a romance (and young adult) story done well.
