Review: Such a cute two shot manga. Especially if you fell in love with the Shojo manga Hana-Kimi. The only big problem with this series is that it is way too short. As in the series ends with no real ending to help readers with the after story of the characters.
2 out of 5 stars.
1-2 volumes.

 Volume 1 features 6 one-page profiles (illustrations and author comments) on famous figure skaters.Maya Kurinoki is an 8th-grader who has no experience in ice-skating but seems to have natural talent. She performs a double axel and impresses a scout named Eiji Todo, who tells her that he can make her a skating “princess.” Todo tells Maya that she’ll have to convince famous skater Shun Kano to coach her and become her skating partner. Unfortunately for Maya, Shun only wants to skate singles.

When Maya Kurinoki takes her little brother to the local ice-skating rink for the first time, she’s got her hands full just trying to get him to let go of the bar. To inspire a bit of bravery in him, she attempts a double axel–and lands it! Maya never imagined that this jump would change her life…or that a coach named Eiji Todo would vow to make her a figure skating “princess”! Now all Maya has to do is convince famous skater Shun Kano to become her partner. Too bad Shun doesn’t want to have anything to do  with her!
