and she's sympathetic and awesome and not messed up, even though she's engaged to one of the main chars. Read it for that rarity if nothing else. The arts pretty, the story and characterizations mostly standard.

Whoa! Good! I liked Yukari best from the main one, and the side story, Lips, best!

Wow, this was great! I loved the main guys and the hijinks that they were involved in, and their dynamic was interesting. Plus, I have at thing for free-spirited characters like Ryuusuke.

But what really fascinated me about this was the fiance, Yukari. She was amazing! I want to read a whole story about her! I really, really loved her. I kind of wish this author did stories about straight couples, too, and that Yukari would get her own story. I'd love to see what she's up to and the guy she falls for. And I normally am not a fan of female characters (they're usually written to be so annoying, which is an awful shame!).

Why can't anyone write a main female character like Yukari? Ugh, it's so annoying.

Also, I liked Lips a lot more than the main story. Lips was genius. I'd love to read more about those guys (I prefer ukes to be more like this one - less like a doormat and more like a person).

I liked this. I loved the emotion, it was really well drawn and really well expressed. I loved how the woman actually seemed like a character, not just a thing that is being betrayed. She even benefits, for pete's sake.

yeah, tachibana's cheating without so much as a thought as to whether this is ethical isn't a nice feature, and the fiancee gets removed very conveniently. but hey, the former happens, and the latter is a cheap plot device. add to the negatives that i think ryuusuke is a bit of a bimbo for acting how he did; he really does make very stupid decisions that hurt tachibana badly. but i enjoyed the story anyway, though not quite as much as calling, which didn't have as much angst nor detracting factors. i like that tachibana isn't a stoic seme, but that they're both damn emotional when push comes to shove.

ootsuki's art is really growing on me.

I really, really like this story, mainly because the main couple has personalities I like. I love ukes like Ryuusuke with the carefree attitude that sets the pace, but tries to shoulder everything on his own; and I love semes like Tachibana, who just gets swept along and forgives everything the uke does.

The pace wasn't rushed either, and everything flows pretty well, even the flashbacks. You really get attracted to their relationship more and more as the story goes on. The only parts I don't particularly find appealing is how

Spoiler (highlight to view)
Tachibana was cheating on his fiance with Ryuusuke, and I find the forgiving attitude of the fiance a bit unbelievable.


Overall, though, I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would and it was definitely a good read.

If I had to blame someone, that would be the uke. He's the one that came after so many years and imposed himself. The seme is more like a victim to me, he didn't take for real the part about being lovers, I guess he just felt happy to be reunited with someone dear to him and left himself being swept away, like he says.

I thought that the uke is a jerk, but in the end love isn't fair, is it?

My first thought when I started reading this was "this is very similar to Seven Days". But then it became really different, as this is more to the comedy side. It's not particularly original, but...it really got to me. I felt sick to my stomach when I realized they'd have to break up when the wedding day came. The way they have their moments and such is is somehow really cute and, to thinking this was a sweet story about how one month made them fall in love, this became something much more intense than that. There are twists to the story there's no way you'll be able to tell and suddenly I caught myself crying along the whole thing.
Even so, neither the uke nor the seme are my type. Tachibana's personality's different from his appearance, as he looks tough but is actually very timid and does everything the uke asks for. Yet, he's strong and has a brave personality. Ryuusuke is the kind of cheerful to the point he's annoying at first, but still manages to get everyone (including the readers) wrapped around his little finger. They are, though, well built and, as Tachibana himself says, Ryuusuke has a lot of façades.

Though I loved it, I can't say it's flawless. The only thing I can particularly say I really didn't like was the sex being this quick and with no conflicts regarding it. So it's okay for an engaged man to have sex with his university friend from whom he's never heard of since and for whom he obviously has feelings for? I don't mind that they're doing something "morally wrong", I mind that they don't care they're doing it. The art's also not to my taste, but it's not bad at all.
Then again, Yukari is A-W-E-S-O-M-E. Finally a manga where woman aren't b*tches! On the contrary, she even helps out and is freaking strong as a character! I love her!!

Oh, and the one-shot was really cute! I like the focus being the lips and wanting each other. Though the author says it wasn't supposed to be sexy, I thought the part where the seme said "you look like you crazily wanted me" was really hot...I guess I was expecting a hot sex scene indeed =X

OBS: If I rated this by criteria, it'd be a 7 or so. But I like it too much so I'm making an exception to real evaluation.

I didn't know what to expect and based on the story description i went into this with low expectations. I was however wrong to think that way ^^ i found this rather refreshing, quite touching too and with enough twists in the story and romance to makes it continuously interesting.

The art style isnt my favourite but given how good the story was i can completely forgive that xD

In defense of the way the cheating was handled so casually, I think Yukari and Tachibana's engagement was an agreement for a joint of two consenting parties, not quite an arranged marriage, but not quite a business proposition either. There was no deception. Tachibana would have been faithful to Yukari when they were married, but not before--not that he had any reason to (besides Ryuusuke). Anyway, throughout the story, it was always shown that Tachibana ALWAYS catered to Ryuusuke's whims.


Still, although Yukari was a well-rounded character, her presence was unneeded. Her role in the main story was obviously forced that I felt that there could have been other made-up incidents to force Ryuusuke back into Tachibana's life. Plot device aside, the couple's development was played out quite nicely. Great pacing as well. All in all, a very good read.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
I dunno, but I feel like Ryuusuke's problem (don't know if the real problem was his mother's health and how he was going to pay it was it) was an unresolved issue, or at least there was no closure about it.
