Leroy Douresseaux, writing for Comic Book Bin, enjoyed the pacing of the first volume, feeling it permitted "the reader to get to know the characters" well. He described Kinoshita's art as "soft and evocative". Patricia Beard appreciated that the book was "angst-free", instead going for an "understated" mood. Holly Ellingwood, writing for Active Anime, described the story as "poignant", and stated that although she had to get used to Kinoshita's art style when reading You and Harujion, Ellingwood now appreciated Kinoshita's "clean art and its unique expressiveness".
