Totally unexpected, mixed feelings. This was a charming, childish, sensitive story (well, actually "stories" - as "Moonlight Shadow" is the accompanying story of "Kitchen", but they do share common motifs). Sensual in a childish way, shocking through its gender-mixing aspects, impressive through the force of the feelings it comprises - rather a sense of being at a loss, than love itself. With small Japanese elements that make the story special. Really enjoyable, and extremely easy to read due to its small size and strong intensity.
