The way this manga is organized is we get a short-short story and then a breif written essay about the subject the story was focused on, whether it be marriage or insecurity. There are many short-shorts in this book, so the stories don't go into too much depth, but they manage to be charming and effective anyways. A great manga for a young woman to read about the subject of love.
Drawing on CLAMP's own personal experiences, The One I Love provides insight both into the creators' own lives, and into the oft-elusive concept of Love itself.
This intimate collection of short stories and essays doesn't skirt issues at the heart of the matter such as insecurity, honesty, distance, independence, age, and - of course - marriage.
This one-volume anthology comprises 12 individual stories, each of which consists of seven pages of manga and two pages of prose.
