Pop Culture Shock's Katherine Dacey compares the manga's artwork to those of Keiko Nishi’s "with its slightly stylized character designs, delicate linework, and sparing use of screentone."[25] Manga Life's Ysabet Reinhardt MacFarlane commends the manga for its "detailed and very easy to follow" artwork.[26]'s Sakura Eries criticises the manga for its "not very compelling" protagonists.[27] Later reviews by Sakura Eries criticises the manga, which was published in 1996, for its "futuristic anachronism" of the story that is set in 2021. Eries comments that the scenarios would seem dated in the post 9/11 world. She also criticised the manga for its unrealistic plot.[28][29]
