From Moi-xRyu Scanlations::

From the quiet days they spent together, they eventually became close... and will love bloom?

This is one of the best shounen-ai's I have ever read, and I'm usually pretty picky since if there isn't any yaoi I want an awesome plot. This manga definitely exceeded my expectations. There's no unnecessary love triangles, non-con, or a rushed love, which is unfortunately all too common in the BL world. The art's great and the plot is nicely paced with likeable characters and wrapped up quite nicely, what more could you ask for?
This is amazing. I'm really touched! It had everything I love in a good story: quiet leaders, deliquent and, yet, very sincere boy, pretty touching art work and... SO MANY FEELINGS!!!!!!! <3 This was a gift from heavens.
Storytelling as it should be
You can't really say that this story is unique, but there's something about it that's just so fresh and intriguing. I love the unique voices of both the main characters. When you're seeing the story from each of their points of views, you really feel like each is alive and different. This is what all writers should strive for. Basically this is an ode to Ichikawa Kei's amazing storytelling ability. Her instincts and talent for character development are nothing short of perfection. Not to mention, her art is fantastic. It's wonderful to see that such good writing/storytelling exists not only in the BL genre, but also in manga in general. As always, my only complaint is that her works are never long enough

a must read :)
Very funny, light yaoi manga (rather sho-ai) with a really good art. I mean it's not that angsty, smutty, dark kind of yaoi but it's not flat, boring or plotless. It's a great, refreshing story that will catch your attention and make you wonder how the things will turn out till the last chapter. The characters seems to be a real people, I like that feeling. They have a background, everything is nicely developed. Also I liked mangaka's sense of humour. The only complaint is that it's too short. I'd really love to see more about this couple. It's a great choice if you look for sth not too heavy. Enjoy!

Exactly what I look for in a BL manga: very sweet couple, nicely developed, and avoids most stereotypes. I love how it was resolved as well, and Terashima's reaction to being "rejected" in the last chapter is priceless (realisitic and adorable). The art is pretty unique too. Overall, a must read.
Why, cliffhanger, why!?
-cries and floods the whole world-
It's very sweet, slow, and totally matches Ichikawa-sensei's flavor. I heartily recommend it. It's a nice break from over the top bubbly personalities (i.e., shoujo).
this is now one of the mangas i pray every night to be updated as swiftly as possible. lol.
i love how the mangaka presents a setting that is slice of life and everyday while making the tension between the two mains deliciously mysterious and alluring. narasaki and terashima are just your everyday normal dudes, but when put together the chemistry is just wow. ichikawa-san, you have a gift for this.
One of my few favs
Read up to ch 5 now. The story is really cute and I like how both perspectives are shown. In ways, I like this more than Slow Starter, which I read first. The art is better (more polished?). The dynamics between the two characters are more interesting imo. The characters change more here. However, both stories have a nice slow pace that I enjoy. Don't read this if you're looking for smut.
I'm always looking for fluffy stories with character development and slow romance, and it's hard to find good ones after reading BL for so long, but this one doesn't disappoint.
[EDIT]: I just finished reading the last chapter. I'm amazed that I kept chuckling, even at the very end. Usually, endings in BL leave me dissatisfied, but not this one. It's a pretty befitting end for these two lol.

Great building up
The story is building up nicely, so they are feelings. Characters are not annoying or anything and the overall development doesn't feel rushed. Compared to earlier work of this mangaka (Slow Starter) the transmission of the emotions to the readers is much better done and it boosts the overall quality up Such a pity that the last chapter's ending missed some of its previous intensity. In the end it was good manga

Awesome so far
As of chapter three, this is really not disappointing. It has such great atmosphere and most importantly, feels *real*. The characters have soul. The story has soul. It's very simple, without a ton of dialogue, and everything which needs to be expressed is done so skillfully and without pretense. This is shaping up to join Slow Starter in my favorites
