SOS (manga)

Have you read this? want to / read some / read all

Plot Summary: An anthology of three short stories (the longest of which, the title story, is in two parts). In "SOS", three high school students set up a dating agency for their peers but they encounter some major problem cases and, in any case, it seems they themselves are in as much need of romantic guidance as their clients. In "That Sweet Organ Song", the catastrophic Kobe earthquake of 1995 brings back poignant memories of a romantic affair during the 1920s between a humble bookstore clerk and an industrialist's son with artistic aspirations. In "The Easy Life", Mami has to decide whether or not her thoughtless, chauvinistic and self-centred boyfriend Yohei is capable of changing his ways.
