He introduces himself as Komatsu Yuuto, but the little kids, Haruki (Spring) and Fuyumi (Winter) call him Natsu-neechan (Summer) because he comes to play with them in the summer. She introduces

herself, but the boy gives her the nickname , Aki (Autumn), because her original name was too long. They play together throughout the summer, but will they want to split up when it’s over?

Collected as an omake(extra) in volume one of  Akagami No Shirayuki-hime.


I’ve always found the transition of seasons rather solemn when I think about  how nature keeps progressing – leaving things behind and never looking back. This one-shot re-creates that exact same feeling, making it bittersweet to remember fond memories but reminds us that to forget, is above all, the most sad. It encourages us to constantly look forwards into future, because we can frankly be very surprised.

Overall rating: 4.3/5
