I love the artwork and characters in this manga, but I especially love how powerfully moving her supporting characters are. At the end of the manga, Itsuki Kaname introduces a short story about Nakatani's older brother and a kid named Kusakabe, whose identity is later revealed (and I was really surprised by who he actually was!!!). I was so intrigued by this story line that I was hoping the mangaka would come up with a sequel featuring Nakatani and Kusakabe.
I noticed that in her other other manga, Lost Boys, she also introduces two intriguing supporting characters (captain and first officer) but did not flesh out this love angle. Why does she tease us so??
