It is licensed in North America by Digital Manga Publishing, which released the manga's two bound volumes through its imprint, Juné, between March 25 and June 24, 2008.[1][2] Houbunsha releases the manga three tankōbon volumes between June 2000 and October 2000.[3][4]

Reception[edit]

Anime News Network's Casey Brienza commends the manga for its "interesting (and sexy!) characters, a complex, well-conceived plot, and plenty of laughs to lighten up the angsty bits" but criticizes it for "a weak bonus story in volume two and artwork that remains a bit amateurish".[5] Coolstreak Comics' Leroy Douresseaux commends the manga artist as a "master of complex, passionate psychological dramas".[6] Mania.com's Briana Lawrence comments on the movie aspect of the manga "serving as a tool to highlight the more important things in the manga: Jun and Yutaka's relationship, Toshi and Nakamura's developing relationship, the birth of Miki's baby, and we get to see all the major plot points through the eyes of a camera".[7] Active Anime's Rachel Bentham comments that the manga is "more soap opera antics behind the scenes of this film club".[8]
