It was just bound to become an 'odd-couple'-type of relationship when bookstore employee Serizawa bumps into the Goliath (but apparently very meek and timid one), Keito. Falling in love was easy, but how will Keito overcome his meekness to show Serizawa his true feelings? On the other hand, how will Serizawa vanquish his own insecurities about relationships and accept Keito's affections for him? A lot of things can happen under the cafe latte-colored sky...

Once again, Kawai-sensei amazes me. This was so cute and sweet, I really loved this story<3 Hajime-chan and Keito-kun are so adorable! >.< I think they're so original! There's something about them that makes you fall in love with them<3 And once again the art is superb! I love Kawai-sensei's style~
The only down side is that this story is oh so depressingly short, but even so, I just know I'll be reading this over and over again. Whether you read BL or not, if you enjoy romance you'll definitely enjoy this smile

..but i had to this time because of some undefinable quality this manga had. The art was beautiful, as usual, the characters were adorable, the story was, yes, very short, but very very sweet (without being sickening).

Also, these two win the title of the sweetest, dumbest couple in the history of yaoi.

This was so damn cute. There's something refreshing about reading a yaoi manga that's sweet and romantic, with no unnecessary forcefulness and purely lust-driven feelings. I loved Keito and Serizawa so much. It broke my heart when Keito cried over being treated differently, when he was so kind and pure-hearted. And Serizawa's character surprised me as the manga continued on. Though at first he appeared always cheerful and confident, a different side of him gradually appeared, one that didn't hold himself in very high esteem and even made him feel guilty for wanting to monopolize Keito. He became so much more easy to relate to, and really, he and Keito are such a perfect match. I also couldn't believe how likeable the side characters were. Girls are usually made to be very annoying in BL, but not the girls in this manga. Riri-chan was awesome. Even the troublesome, broke ex-boyfriend I couldn't grow to dislike. Definitely read this one.

without being diabetic. they are the most likeable couple ever. the seme is so cute and such a cry baby and the uke is a kind level headed guy, they are both extremely adorable. the drama is light, and their interactions are pure. the art is appropriate to convey the sweetness of their relationship. must read.

This is the ultimate in feel good fluffy romance <3 amazing. Beautifully constructed, a lovely simplistic plot yet you never get bored and the characters are so full of life and emotion. I felt myself get all teary eyed at times just because of how beautiful some moments were. I seriously want to hug both main characters dead

Yes, this is ridiculously cute, but it's not a superficial type of cute at all (you'll get my meaning once you read it). The difference between other yaoi with "cute" couples and this one is that while things often seem cliche and glossed over in others, here, their relationship, though corny, comes off as sincere and sometimes heart-wrenching. It really got me thinking about pure, untainted personalities. I think it's a good psychological read, believe it or not. And the perfect length!*

I think it's important to not approach this manga with a judgmental attitude. Enjoy!

*Edit: not the only aspect of this manga that's the perfect length *coughcough*

sry...had to do it

I love everthing about this manga and also got teary-eyed over it...but somehow made me sad that relationships in real life aren't like that ... I mean.. Where can you find a real Keito-san these days?...

Fluffy romance with nonexplicit sex at best.

I agree with Prettykitty200034 that the story really wasn't that wonderful. Somehow, I just didn't sense the same touch that Kawai-sensei gives to her other stories. Maybe it's that her art and story style is changing, but then I've gotta say that I rather miss her style like in 'Cut' and 'Bond(z)'. Or maybe it all just got lost in the sweetness and the cuteness.

Well, if shoujo-y characters are your type, then this is for you, but personally I miss the intensity of sensei's other works.

I can't even. eek Just. Too. Damn. Cute! <3

This is honestly the one pick-me-up manga I can always count on among the 500+ yaoi titles I currently own. Whenever I'm feeling down - whenever I'm worried - I pick this up and whoosh! All the pain goes away! It's like those magic kisses my Momma gave me when I was little... laugh

The characters are so sweet and their love so pure that I feel like I'm being wrapped in layer after layer of exquisitely soft candy-floss, and I don't mind. biggrin The thing is, the romance is STILL realistic despite its extraordinary sweetness - people do fall in love like that, as simply and beautifully as that, no questions asked. And people with painful pasts do, indeed, occasionally find that one person that makes it all worthwhile. This is just so beautiful on so many levels. Soul-healing stuff that'll become a staple dietary requirement whenever you're feeling down and your emotional 'sugar levels' need picking up. Don't miss it. smile

That is pretty much one of the only things I say as I read along. I just bought my own licensed copy and I love it to bits. June did a superb job despite its flaws in a few previous titles.

But I digress.

This manga is all kinds of adorable and sweetness that I think I'm getting cavities in my brain instead of my teeth. XD Keito is a such a painfully shy and timid gentle giant* with a face of a thug* while Hajime has a cheerful exterior but can't be honest with himself. How one judges a book by its cover. And Hajime works in a bookstore! XD

Normally, I prefer my manga for 18+ readers, but this is my exception because I was struck by the warm fuzzies, touched by the heartwarming bits, and heartbroken by the tearjerker moments. I highly recommend this manga to anyone who loves the WAFF. biggrin
