Collected in the Happy (Anthology) of one-shots by a variety of manga-kas.
Sorry for the late one-shot! Better late than never right? This weekend’s one-shot is by Ueda Miwa, more known as the author of Papillion – Hana to Chou.
This one-shot focuses on the common obstacles of a romance and how to grow & learn from them. It’s by no means a complicated piece of work and there’s really nothing much out of the ordinary, which isn’t a bad thing in this case. It’s Ueda Miwa’s strength I’d say, to make things believable and stir a bit of drama here and there. Simplicity is sometimes key for a nice solid story.
I’m not sure about everyone else, but I think Ueda Miwa’s drawing style really retains that retro shoujo vibe, it’s kind of nostalgic. One thing you can make sure of, there’s a happy ending! It’s a nice one-shot to read while waiting for Valentine’s day.
