Real love and passion.

Can happiness be found in the delicate balance between passion and love? Twins Shun and Shu have had no luck in love. However, a chance encounter reunites former lovers Shu and Naomichi after their breakup of three years ago. While the two had a budding relationship in the past, things fell apart and they went their separate ways. Now, fate brings them back together once again. Could it be that a relationship like the one they shared in the past is what they have been looking for all along? Can they both find the meaning of real love?

Real Love - Chapters 1 - 3: Fun stories about the loves of twins Shun and Shu, though it took me a while to figure out who was who - I almost thought they were together until Shun's ex-girlfriend made more of an appearance.

Baby; Love Star - High schooler Hikari has been playing guitar on the streets when she meets Kin. He gets her a record contract but then distances himself from her.

I agree that the characters are a bit confusing in the title story. And I so don't like Shu, it's hard to accept the ending.
Can't say I like Ladies Comics, even though it's more age-appropriate for me, LOL...
Will wait for the next manga box to put this in.

5 out of 10

Read two days ago.

The first thing I noticed when I read this was that the art is so similar to Ai Yazawa, creator of Paradise Kiss and Nana! Now, I know that for shoujo manga it's pretty common to have art that looks alike, but Yazawa's always had such a distinctive style that I've never seen other comics like it. So that was weird and unexpected - so unusual that I almost wondered if Mitsuki Oda was an alter ego for Ai Yazawa!

The stories themselves? Meh. The first one was something about twins having relationship troubles with their significant others. I actually worried that the story was going to lead into some creepy twincest sex, but thankfully the author didn't veer in that direction. The second was about a musician who gets discovered off the street and has a relationship with her agent. Neither one was particularly memorable.

I was somewhat annoyed that the hair didn't match the faces. I don't know how to explain this, but I'll try. The linework for the hair of uses the same thin pen for every strand, while the faces are drawn a variety of pen nibs. This gives the faces an illusion of modeling and dimensionality, while the hair always looks flat. It bugged me.
