The piece is a gorgeous piano ballad that suits the tone perfectly. Altogether, this short story may be exactly what’s needed for those days you feel worn down and alone as a quick reminder of the love that’s out there when we need it. - Nihon Review

And therein lies its charm because as they say, in simplicity lies greatness. - MyAnimeList (Dr_Spade)
