A collection of 5 short stories: 1. Natsu no Kakera When Miyuki goes off to the countryside to visit her grandfather in the hospital, she accidentally enters Madoka’s room instead. Although she finds him rude at first, they end up seeing each other every day and get closer. But, Miyuki only has a limited amount of time in the countryside. As the summer passes, how will things turn out for them? 2. Yuki no Kakera Aya usually has the library to herself after school - that is, until she witnesses an incident that leads to her discovery of Tono’s feelings for her fellow librarian, Konno. The three end up spending time together, and Aya finds it odd that she can’t stop watching them. As winter goes on, the snow falls and builds up like the fragments of Tono’s emotions - fragments that slowly find their way into Aya’s heart. 3. Koi no Kakera What was initially sheer admiration for the club president, Kondo, spurred Konno into joining the Home Economics Club. Little did she know that these feelings of admiration would eventually grow into something bigger and she decides to knit him a scarf as an expression for her feelings. However, life is hard when the target of her affections is the harshest handicraft critic around. Would a scarf knitted with the her fragments of her emotions be enough to convey her feelings? 4. Harumichi Soushi 5. Akiiro Kimiiro Kanako had always dreamed of falling in love; and when she finally does, things don’t exactly go according to plan. Ihara is cold, aloof and rude – but despite that, she is relentless and refuses to give up. Vibrantly coloured by all the moments they had together, it was the autumn their lives changed forever.
