I don't like this oneshot as much as the prequel, probably because I don't understand what Midou is thinking and she feels more "human" in the prequel than this one. Miku is still interesting though.
Nonetheless, this is still a decent and enjoyable oneshot. Yorumo's art is gorgeous as usual.
refrain kiss is kind of a hot mess, but not really hot or messy enough. not enough commitment to justify expanding on cigarette kiss's ending and a big tonal shift without a lot of payout. also the pacing feels off.
the refrain kiss story beat concepts could work amazingly in theory but i just feel that they're impossible to implement in just one chapter and it shows.
