Two fantasy one shots telling us two pretty similar stories. Main characters are almost the same - lonely girls, living by themeselves and hoping to find real friends and true love. And those dreams get the chance to come true when young guys appear in the girls' lifes. But something's not okay with the boys.. What? They are just not 100% humans.
As a little girl, Alice remembers being comforted by a boy while she was crying; more than anything she wishes she could meet him again to thank him. Now, as a middle school student and student council president, Alice is working towards throwing the school's cultural festival and facing the criticisms of her peers. However, by her side is the pesky yet lovable Lu - a sorcerer from the Magical Kingdom who is stuck in our world until the next full moon and inhabiting the body of a doll! Alice finds herself becoming closer to Lu, yet she knows he'll be leaving soon. What will be their fate?
BlackxBlack and Tsuki Iro Secret are two shoujo/romance one shots with a twist: both involve a fantasy and magical element that is a central point to the plot. There's plenty of these types of one shots out there, but these two seem appropriately matched.
Shuichiro Kudo is a man who has everything he wants from life: a job as successful doctor and his own home. However one evening he finds a tiny angel trapped on a branch and frees him. The angel, named Kohaku, offers Shuichiro a wish in return for saving him, but Shuichiro wants nothing. Kohaku however, is determined that there has to be a wish Shuichiro cannot grant by himself and follows him home. Kohaku reveals that he has left heaven to locate another angel, Hisui who has abandoned heaven, but a devil and his two catty servants constantly hinder Kohaku's search! Will Kohaku find Hisui and will Shuichiro realize that some wishes can only be granted by others?
