    Woods strings together a series of anecdotes to create, in total, a portrait of how "a Japanese Girl Got Freedom." the only problem is that there's no sex or violence in the work. no エログロ, no nonsense. thus, there is a certain lack of darkness to the work. that said, this work is not without charm, and it reads smoothly. 3/5, and I hope the artist continues to practice her craft. I will try to seek out future works from HW.

    It's about family in Japan. Sometimes sweet but almost sad. Nice short short stories. It's about family in Japan. Sometimes sweet but almost sad. Nice short short stories.
