Sono Me, Kuchi hodo ni. is one of those So-Okay-It’s-Average one-shot collections that…. doesn’t even really seem to follow a theme…?
For the first two one-shots, the theme seems to be marriage, but the third one-shot doesn’t fit this theme at all. All the one-shots are lazily tied together by a short epilogue at the end.
However, let’s put that aside and judge each one-shot on its own. Each one-shot is alright, but none of them really stand out and the characters aren’t very likable, with one being manipulative and the other just… falling in love with them anyway.
Overall, each one shot in “Sono Me, Kuchi hodo ni.” feels just alright, as does the three put together as a compilation. The character’s expressions are nicely drawn though, and I’d be interested to see what this author could do if they leaned more into comedy instead of melodrama.
