Though they're often misunderstood as never-do-well's by the outside world, the biggest misunderstanding is between the two of them. You see, Aya is totally head over heels in love with Satsuki, and she has no clue! Will Aya ever be able to confess his love? (Source: Tokyopop)

Short Program 2
Probably one of the most difficult feats in manga is to tell a compelling short story, and Mitsuru Adachi is a master of the medium. This selection of some of his best short works include two tales in the dangerous life of a pretty private-eye-to-be; a boy's stop-off on the way changes his life's destination; five short-shorts in a quirky cafe; Japan's future ace pitcher can't even throw a ball; when a school play goes bad, the world is a stage for love and karate; a drama of rugby and past lives; two off-beat time-travel tales; and more! Mitsuru Adachi's low-key but high-impact stories are a must read for any manga aficionado. (Source: VIZ Media) 1. Haru ga Kuru Mae ni... (Before Spring Comes) 2. Wakaba Mark (Subject - Wakaba) 3.
