The first one-shot was wonderful. I love reading manga with mature and level-headed kids - not to mention they were adorable :] The third one-shot, however, left a bit of bad taste in my mouth, and not only because the translation was pretty difficult to decipher. I liked it quite a bit until the ending but then it got pretty illogical. Well, it was still a good story but how was the mother suddenly a different person? She was clearly neglecting her daughter emotionally and physically. So how come it was suddenly a misunderstanding and all was well? It felt to me that everything was glossed over - I'd have like to see the mother either own up to her failures or remain cold and Sora to decide to look out for herself from then on. In any case, these stories were definitely worth reading.

Well, everything was glossed over, true.  But I wouldn't go quite so far--even a neglectful mother is usually not actually indifferent to her kid, she's just maybe a bit selfish and she's taking the kid for granted.  But such a person can still get worried if suddenly the situation leaves her comfort zone; lots of crappy parents would still be upset and scared if they didn't know what happened to their kid.  So she's not a different person, she's just always been able to rely on her daughter, she's always reliably been there keeping things stable and never goes missing--makes it all the more of a shock when suddenly she doesn't come back.  No doubt she'll go back to being a lousy parent, although maybe not quite so lousy now that she's had a little wake up.

And at the end I don't really get the feeling she thinks everything is now going to be awesome with her mom--rather that she doesn't know how it's going to work, but even if things go bad it's OK cuz she's got the guy now.

Kinda strange. Ch. 1 is very sweet. Ch. 2 & 3 are full of broken family weirdness. Ch. 4 is very short but dense. The common theme might be "rescue fantasy"--the quirky/protective guy who changes everything and allows you to move forward. I agree about the difficult Engrish in the translation of chapter 3.

 

Having never been a female middle-schooler myself, I'm not quite sure what to make of any of it.

What a nice manga.
I came here to make a joke about the name.
But i think i won't.

i cried a few times TT.TT
Those were really quite nice. Well, ch 1 and 3, dunno what 2 and 4 will be like.
There's a straightforward sincerity to them that I like, and the first one the girl is a bit different.
