Reception[edit]

Manga Sanctuary series of reviews, regards the characters to be "less endearing" than those of Yui's Kirara, and the humor to be "less effective" in the first volume review, goes further in criticism by describing the second volume reading experience as devoid of emotion and the last volume as leaving a bitter after taste so much the manga is ill built and rushed.[13] The French manga dictionary Dicomanga pointed to the author's large usage of computer software which gives a particular yet slightly icy tone to his universe.[14] SplashComics noted that the author used the technique of using photographs as backgrounds.[15] SplashComics described the second volume as being "a typical Yui: Girls and ghosts", noting that although the series was tamer than Kirara, that fanservice was provided via tight shirts and short skirts,[16] and felt the ending was "a little disappointing".[17]
