Reception

Coolstreak Comics' Leroy Douresseaux comments on the author's "evocative art, in which she emphasizes emotion in body language, facial expressions".[5] ActiveAnime's Holly Ellingwood also comments on the manga artist's art saying, "the more serious overtones of this story give the artist a chance to show the more stark and dramatic side to her illustrations and imagination".[6] Pop Shock Culture's Michelle Smith comments on the scenes "involving incest and masochism" saying, they are "not played for titillation".[7]
