Far away from the city, deep within the mountains, sits the all-boys high school, Shidou Academy.

Takumi, a boy from humble origins, prepares to begin his second year at the school. Held back by psychological issues, Takumiís indifferent attitude has garnered him no friends and the reputation as a cold fish. Then along comes Gui, a wealthy and charismatic student born in America. Gui is the only person who doesnít see Takumi as odd, and the two become friends. But how will the two cope when Gui confesses his love to Takumi? And can the couple survive the revelation of the secret behind the psychological problems that plague Takumi?

Barefoot Waltz:
17 year-old violin prodigy, Sachi, has scheduled a performance at Shidou Academy that has all the student body abuzz. This is especially true for Takumi who gave up the violin, but has nevertheless been an ardent admirer of Sachi for years. When the two become friends, how will it affect Takumiís relationship with Gui? And what is the true reason behind Sachiís visit to Shidou Academy?

Tales out of Season:
When Takumi and Gui hear an odd sound in the science lab late one night, they discover a photograph that leads them to a mystery involving the school clock tower. Is the school haunted by a vengeful ghost? Or is someone hiding a dark secret? And when the couple spends their first Christmas together, will Gui play the role of Santa and fulfill all of Takumi's desires?

Ah, situational homosexuality. It's fun and great for making everyone-is-gay shounen-ai seem slightly more plausible.
But what do I care about plausibility? This series is good clean fun along the lines of Only the Ring Finger Knows, and I'm loving it.

What I don't get is why the author decided to sum up all the interesting parts of the story (culture shock, unrequited love, confession, intrigue, girly-boy knife fight) in a choppy 18-page prologue and then spend the rest of the series detailing the boring everyday lives of a situationally gay couple, but I like it.
