9. September


The volume comprises 3 short stories.

The first one has a slight supernatural element to it, but is primarily centered on the relationship between a father and son. I feel obligated to add (as a just-in-case) that there are absolutely no incestuous undertones in this story.

Next, we have a story that's kind of philosophical at points when it touches upon the interrelations between humans and existence.

The last story is on friendship, growth and love. It delves lightly into the background of the previous story's protagonist, Karino Yoshihito, as well.

Karino Yoshihito is a character who also appears in "Mizu ga Kooru ni Naru Toki" and "The Another Ocean".

10. Cluster

Adventure, Fantasy, Romance, Supernatural

The story begins by introducing three sisters on a central "Heavenly" planet. This central planet is surrounded by 12 other planets or "worlds." The three sisters living on the heavenly planet are princesses (of course!). One day, the eldest sister goes on a training expedition, but does not return. The energetic, peppy, stereo-type-heroine youngest sister goes off to rescue her. There the story begins.

On her journey, she begins to have perverse dreams about a dark, sinister man with her eldest sister. Out of nowhere, she meets this guy who has a strange, troubled past. He has psycotic phases where he assumes another personality. Sometimes he's nice, and sometimes he gets really evil-looking and tries to seduce her.

She soon meets many other odd people on her journey and they travel with her. Her journey and the adventures become the main story.
