Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The story is about how Yui interviews for the job, apprentices, and is accepted. It is very satisfying that when she makes her choice, she decides to share it with her husband rather than keeping it a secret.

Con: Yui is a very passive protagonist. Ms. Moriyama is real actor for most of the story.
