One shots are a great way to keep myself entertained for a few minutes, but whenever I read one I can't help but either wish the oneshot was not a oneshot, or feel that I just wasted those few minutes. This, fortunately, falls into the former category. I liked the story, and I liked the end, and I would really have liked it if the story had been fleshed out to, say, two or three volumes. I suppose asking to get attached to characters that only have a thirty page story is asking a bit much, but if you want to read a oneshot then I would say this is a good one.
