Coolstreak Cartoons's Leroy Douresseaux commends the author's on her ability to "emphasize the emotion and mood" by focusing "often a single character" in every frame.[4] Pop Shock Culture's Katherine Dacey comments on the lack of "smut", "engaging talkfests" and detailed artwork in Garden Dreams, that usually peppers Fumi Yoshinaga's works.[5] David Welsh at Comic World News comments on the drop in the author's standards compared to her other works: Antique Bakery, Flower of Life (manga) and Ichigenme... The First Class is Civil Law.[6] Shaenon Garrity, writing for the appendix to Manga: The Complete Guide, felt the yaoi elements were toned down enough for a non-yaoi fan to enjoy the book, and praised Yoshinaga's character designs, calling them "some of the most handsome men in manga".[7]
