It was a clever choice to see the story from the eyes of the younger brother. That is what gave this story its charm Iím sure. I always go into Ike senseiís stories with enthusiasm and this story did not disappoint me at all. The progress of time was handled nicely and the men grew up to be quite handsome in my opinion. I could believe the characters, which is something quite missed in the bl world. Honestly, this is a top-notch shounen ai. I recommend this to veterans and beginners of the bl world alike.

This is a rare gem of a manga. I loved how the story was from the little brother's perspective and how even at a young age he has understood a lot of things. The story paired with the art, it's just one of those mangas that you just want to keep and read again and again later on. Wonderful, simply wonderful. Very recommended.

A heartwarming story about an insightful little boy and his own inner struggles growing up to find his perfect older brother is, after all, a flesh-and-blood individual of his own.

This is one of those rare moments in the history of BL when a story doesn't try to bite off more than it can chew. On a subtextual level it deals with important LGBT themes (coming out to parents, dealing with their rejection, marriage) as well as other interpersonal-relationship issues more broadly. However, because we're given the (straight) little brother's point of view, these subjects are dealt with in a very tender, innocent way that doesn't weary out.

Of course it would be nice to see a more consistent development of these characters, less condensed and more fruitful. For that reason alone I don't feel quite as satisfied as other readers appear to be and thus can't give this manga a proper 10. However, the story does remain warm to the core and it is a nice reading overall, backed up by some serious beautiful examples of Ike Reibun's gorgeous artistic style and straightforward storytelling.

I'll be returning to it soon enough.

I absolutely loved this manga, it had been a while since I'd read something that had made feel this satisfied, I even cried a bit at the end. Few times have I cried from happiness, but this manga achieved it, it gave me a really warm feeling. The good thing about the it, according to me, is that the story is told from the point of view of the straight younger brother, so that gives you a bit more perspective on the older brother than if he had been the main character. The only thing that I would say didn't convince me completely, was the fact that the brother was a bit too perfect, or at least we as readers don't get to see it.

I gave it a 10.

I liked this story. It is just three chapters long. We watch two brothers grow up, the whole story told in the younger brother's POV. He is proud to have such a wonderful, caring brother... who is also gay.
