Impression: This another one of Asano Inio's works focusing on characters in a realistic setting in Tokyo. These characters in particular are at the points in their lives where they're wondering what exactly they're doing and how they got there while trying to figure out how they can move on from that. The main theme of this particular work is moving on actually an it really does capture it perfectly with its charming story and its silly and lovable characters. It has a lighthearted atmosphere about it throughout the series, even during the usually mood-killing development thanks to the little quirks displayed by the characters and yet it still manages to drive the impact on the events home. This is a wonderful read that I do recommend to others.
