I actually like these more than some of her other oneshots.

I think it has to do with the fact that the girls in chapter 1 & 3 seem more direct in their feelings, and less Crying.

Chapter 2 is a prequel to a oneshot in "Caramel Milk Tea" and I dislike the girl then and moreso now.

She is so immature for Hajime, who puts up with her bad attitude and tantrums time and time again.

Then in the sequel, she Chooses her career over him. Such a mismatched couple, and one I feel such strong dislike for.

Chapter 4 was cute.

These overall were nothing special, but the 2 chapters had less weepy female leads, which lessen the annoyance level.
Usami Maki does a lot of good one-shots. These are good, but I don't think they're her best. If you like one-shots, her stuff is worth looking for. Things like "Caramel Milk Tea" and "Haruyuki Bus" (a whole multi-volume manga of one-shots that happen around buses somehow, and they're all good, and like half of them are really topnotch) and "Apple-cheek Love" and such.
Her longer stuff doesn't quite have the power of her one-shots IMO; I don't know if she loses focus, or isn't good at bringing in plot complications or what. But her oneshots are some of the best in shoujo.
