"It's really good. Tamaki's story of an early-Internet based phenomenon turned eventual cult is fun in its particulars and touching in its specific. You can read it as science-fiction style story and you can also read it as a character piece."
- Tom Spurgeron, The Comics Reporter
"Another very, very good work from Tamaki in a period in which she's ensured the mention of her name as a signifier of excellence in comics."
- Zainab Akhtar, Comics & Cola
"Tamaki’s remarkable page layouts again steal the show. Tamaki has weaved an uneasy tale of sex, relationships, love gained, and lost. Recommended."
- Alex Hoffman, Sequential State
