From Fantasyshrine:

Sonekawa Retsu, the high school karate club captain, has been in love with the student body president, Kaji Shogo since junior high. He even went as far as volunteering as the student body secretary in order to be close to him.

Retsu has never thought of confessing his feelings but his constant heated stares don't leave Kaji unaware of his true feelings. However, this bashful late bloomer needs serious help...

Would love finally blossom between these two men from different worlds?

sweet relationship

I liked the relationship between the two! Both were cool characters. The plot was a little too placid for me though - felt like nothing really happened in it, just a lot of sweet interactions.

I love the story, it's so fun and interesting to follow!
I really like how pushy Kaji is and how innocent and clueless Retsu is.
I like that change from the usual seme/uke thing.
The art is great as usual, the characters are really well done and they work great together and the plot is pretty cute.

I liked the art, the story was fun, and the characters were cool.

However, I generally have a hard time liking a story with a clear cut dominant/submissive couple. It's just not my thing. And that's what this is, pretty much.

But I did have a good time reading it, definitely. I just probably won't read it again.

It's rare for me to read a manga more than once but this one is an exception alongside many other of my favorites that I take the liberty to re-read numerous times. ^_^

It's so nice to see the seme being the shy one for a change and the uke be the one to iniatiate their relationship. Retsu was so cute, sneaking glances at Kaji every chance he could get and it was a nice change seeing Kaji, the uke, take matters into his own hands. It's really a real breath of fresh air from those tiring clique yaois.

If you're tired of the prudent, arrogant semes that either abuse their ukes or act obvlivious to their feelings, then this one is the opposite and it's definitely worth a shot. =)

Characters: 10/10
Art: 9/10
Plot: 10/10

When Retsu received the "How to make love..." manual his reaction almost made me fall off my chair xD Hilarious. His reactions are one of the things that makes this manga so enjoyable x3 I also love the rottie imagery *snicker* This is overall a really cute and fluffy manga with some nice steamy scenes in places.

lozzenator your calling it too long, dude it's only one vloume!
I didn't think it dragged I thought it was so sweet. You don't usually get to see a shy, clueless, timid, sweet, awkward, sweet seme like Retsu.
angelkurisutin your so right the siblings were so cute, I usually don't care much for the characters family members so much, but Retsu's family was an exception. Also Kaji's father was so cool a lot of times the fathers can be total douchebags, but Kaji dad was so awesome.
It was cute when he was showing Retsu his son's baby pics.

I like it because it's a fun read and a little different then most yaoi mangas. Even though there's no drama your heart will feel content cuz it's so damn cute!

The story is cute and so are the boys, but I felt that this manga dragged on for too many chapters. Only a few chapters were neccessary for the plotline.

This manga was just fluff upon fluff upon fluff ^_^. I mean, it was seriously tooth-decayingly sweet. This couple was so different from what I usually see, and it was fun to read their story. Retsu was such an amusing seme. He was so totally smitten with Kaji, and I thought it was hilarious how the parallel between him and a Rottweiler kept being brought up. This isn't for anyone looking for angst. It's got a smitten, akward seme, a cute and super confident uke, a funny side couple, two adorable siblings, and a crazy dad. Very light-hearted reading, and now I totally wanna read the sequel.
