    I really wanted to enjoy this I have liked a lot of the other things that Clamp has written illustrated, and for the most part I did like this I enjoyed the illustrations, which were in most cases life like instead of cutesy I also enjoyed the theme of the book, and felt that in view of the subject love , Clamp had created a honest and real to life book.However I feel that there was too much going on for the length of the book Many of the stories were very sweet and the characters were likeable, but as soon as you began to get involved in the plot, the story was over There are 12 short stories all condensed in 125 pages Although it would have taken much longer for Clamp to have put them together, I think the stories could have benefitted from a in depth plot line, by creating a short series of love stories and focusing on two stories related to a specific theme of love in each book That being said I think that teenage girls who are interested in romance and what it entails, will enjoy this book.

    Bought this at the airport between flights because I d forgotten to pack a book in my carry on and I didn t want to play Pokemon for the next few hours It s about as light and fluffy as I d expected Rereading it now, it s much the same Still, maybe it s because of all that s happened since I first read it, I found it much sweeter It s a quick read for a quiet day.I recommend it to those who need a little optimism, people interested in seeing others views on women and relationships particularly those wanting to look at it from the perspective of another culture , romantics, and anyone who wants a little light reading Each scene is only eight pages long, and they all stand alone.

    Quick thoughts CLAMP is really hit or miss for me, but this was decent Little glimpses of story ideas that take really quick looks at aspects of relationships, mostly relating to doubt The essays after each 7 page story add some context They ll be too short and insubstantial for a lot of readers, but I found them interesting.

    I think I liked the idea of this series of essays than the stories themselves They re not bad, but they re too short to make much of an impact, rounding out at seven pages each The theme of discussing different aspects and types of romantic relationships through essays and short stories is really cool, and for the most part executed well A few of the stories fall flat, but for the most part it s an interesting and quick read I d recommend it if you re looking for some sappy and brief love stories, but don t expect to totally connect with any of the characters.See you in the next review.

    It was alright The stories don t link Some were good and some were a bit too short or boring The essay portions were the same Some were interesting and others tried too hard to be deep But I guess that s how anthologies are always like Well, I still adore the art at least.

    When I first purchased this manga, it was for the gorgeous artwork I read the stories really didn t like them I d contemplated returning it, but kept it since the artwork was so gorgeous placed it on my bookshelf There it sat for about a year until recently, when I wanted something quick to read Upon re reading it, I was enthralled by the stories their characters Unlike one or two of CLAMP s other works, the main characters are very human likeable, even in their supreme flaws The stories range from a manga artist s frustrated girlfriend to an older woman who discovers that she s fallen for a younger man Each of the stories are incredibly believable are things that ultimately almost every person goes through in their life Some of the stories are sweet but just as many are bittersweet in their tellings Even when they end happily enough, you still get that faint hint of sadness in some of them I m incredibly glad that I re read this manga, otherwise I wouldn t have seen how truly wonderful these stories are Would I recommend this to a friend To some of them, yes People who aren t fans of non action stories or the realistic love stories won t be as fond of this collection Also, people who dislike open ended stories like me may not be as initially fond either Still, I d recommend it to most of them with the proviso that they really give it a chance to grow on them like it did with me.

    This is a collection of a dozen 7 page stories, followed by a little description of the inspiration by the author The stories are about a girl s insecurities concerning relationships love with a male While sometimes too simplistic, I found myself being able to relate with a lot, if not all, of the stories I, however, still don t like the word cute unlike the protagonist in that cute story P But I can relate to wanting to look pretty for someone, wanting to be with them and feeling insecure and scared when they hardly spend time with you, long distance albeit a few months only , etc It doesn t really cover the harder, rougher, negative sides of relationships and how to go about resolving them, such as cheating, but this was meant as a collection of Clamp s light hearted stories about love For its purpose goal and audience, it did it well.

    A cute little anthology of short stories about love, each followed by a short essay Clamp really like writing little essays and articles about themselves and I ve always enjoy reading them I was really looking forward to reading The One I Love purchased from the App Store by the Viz Media Select series I can relate to some of the stories In this manga, Clamp tries to analyze the components of love, such as insecurity , cute , happiness , and briefly talk about their experiences I read all this while inside my high school s library It s a fairly old manga, you can see it from the artstyle, but I m a huge Clamp fan who tries to read all their mangas, so this was a little treat for me
