Summary


Katagiri Aoi lives in the countryside, and likes it just fine there. Yet, to her dismay, her parents are moving to Tokyo, and she has to come along. Just before leaving her home town, however, she has a chance encounter with a visiting Tokyoite, Sugita Tsuyoshi, a city-born playboy type. On impulse, he kisses her--only to realize that this kiss, unlike all the others, carries unexpected meaning for them both.

My Thoughts


Review covers 14 chapters 

Sometimes the story starts like your usual romantic comedy, and in just a few chapters everything goes to hell and you are left crying your eyes out. If you've been craving a good hearty tragedy, you'll love today's pick. how so? I've read it 5 times and even if I do know how it ends, after volume 2 I'm crying like a little baby. and the final chapter? OMG, I can't even say anything, there are just too many feels... 

Meet our truly fantastic heroine - Katagiri Aoi, she's naive, she's a bit dumb, but she's the protagonist that you just fall in love with and explore what it means to love. While she might be the main character, I do believe Tsuyoshi took the role of narrator, as we get to see his transformation more: from a playboy into a person who loves Aoi so much he even chooses a different path in life to honour her. 

Yes, this is a love story, so sweet and bitter that you just won't be able to stop reading it. and truthfully the 14 chapter will fly by so fast you won't even know what happened before you are left crying, hiccupping and cursing the author for the reality that she portrayed. 

Are you ready to plunge yourself into the life of Aoi? Are you ready to experience a love that starts with a kiss and grows into something much bigger? Enjoy it to your fullest and don't forget to share your thoughts below! Stay tuned for more reviews as well as promos! Don't miss your next favourite book or manga! Happy reading!

XOXO
