Worth it for the extra story
The main story is cute, but alas forgettable. The idea of focusing on a transvetite was interesting, but the mangaka decided to ultimately not care much about the whole transvestite thing. So what you get in the end is a nice yaoi, but nothing more.
However, the extra story is melancholic, bittersweet and heartwarming. Beautifully narrated, perfectly fits into two chapters. I actually bought the volume only for this story, and read it again from time to time. I'm not going to add much, since it's so short I will definitely spoil it somehow. So go read it!
ON TO THE SIDE STORY
I guess the main story was okay (not exactly my cup of tea but yea cute ok) SO LET'S SKIP OVER TO THE "Of my first love" STORY. IT IS HONESTLY SADDENING. I WAS HONESTLY HAPPY THAT THERE WAS A SECOND CHAP OF IT (yay finally a closure wew surely my tears meant nothing as they'll probably end up with each other...)

IT SERIOUSLY BREAKS MY HEART!!!! THAT'S IT?? THAT'S FREAKING IT? ARE YOU SERIOUS? DID THE STORY JUST--- AND I HATEEEED HOW KAMOTA
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
JUST AGREED WHEN THE GIRL ASKED HIM OUT!!!!! YOU DIDN'T EVEN TRY TO CONFESS TO TORII AND YOU WENT ON AND DATED SOMEONE ELSE JUST BC SHE TRIED TO COMFORT YOU WHEN YOU PUKED!!!!!
AAANND I ALSO HATED KAMOTA FOR
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
ASKING TORII TO GRAB A BITE WITH HIM AT THE END OF BOTH CHAPTERS. I THOUGHT HE WANTED PEACE OF MIND AND A CLOSURE OF HIS FIRST LOVE!!! WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED???
It is honestly saddening (TO THE POINT THAT IT'S RIDICULOUS) that both of the characters said that their first loves is only a precious "memory". Really? Only a precious memory? Lol doesn't seem like it (considering their expressions when they thought about it).
This is Yaoi for God sake!
I enjoyed the stories, except the wishing in a star probably because it's short and lacking on something interesting well the big deal for me is the story of chapter 5&7 seriously! I was torn, i'm hoping that they will be together at chapter 7 but damn! It is so stupid, it's really sad. Why can it be? Why are they so coward? Why are they so timid about their feelings? Wtf is with that bitter, melancholic first love? Wahhh! I'm so affected!
I thought the first chapter was such a pure love, IMO, one that I've not read about for a while. Wow, it shows how corrupted my mind has become. Lol. The wishing star one shot was MEH. I probably won't remember it after a while. Didn't love it. Didn't hate it. Now ch. 5 & 7 was only memorable because it leaves a bittersweet aftertaste. It speaks volumes of how people's hearts are. Love and courage. Without courage your love will always be unrequited, but I liked it. I liked the bittersweetness, the tint of sadness, yearnings, and regret. The high rating is for that story alone.

Nothing special for the most part...
The main story was nothing special at all. I found it boring and not interesting. The two-part oneshot of the first love was a gem though, even if a not very happy one. If you find the first couple of chapters not your thing, I'd still recommend skipping to the "About my first love" chapters.
I liked the main story but the side stories aren't really my cup of tea. Especially chapter 5 & 6. I never like stories like that. I despise it. I hated it. I felt like as if I could just go into the manga and slap the characters awake. Although it shows what reality would be like sometimes, however in this case if one of the main characters in the story confessed their love, they might have a happier ending! And the fact that I hated that story is because of Kamota. He turned his feelings away when he already made the decision to confess! Why?! Why didn't he do it?! Why did he just accept that girl's confession?! It's just pissing me off.
And he dared to say that "falling for a woman saved me in many ways". what the hell. I despise characters like that. It makes me want to slap them. Seriously, Takanaga sensei, you could have done better than giving us some bittersweet stories. I prefer them sweet and fluffy, thank you! You can try reading the first story, but as for the rest, don't even bother. I only gave it an 7 because of the main story. The rest...they are just...bad. Bad for my heart. Might be bad for your heart too if you're not a bittersweet fan like me. Stay away from it. It's poisonous to anti-sad endings people like me.
What is up with the nonsensical words that made it in?? The editor messed up big time on that. "On My First Love" just broke my heart! The other stories were cute, with very light angst. I don't think I could dislike anything by Hinako Takanaga; her art is so pretty!
Rating applies ONLY to Boku no Koi ni Tsuite
The rest you shouldn't even bother reading if you want to read something with a bit of impact.
But Boku.... F*CK. Maybe it's just me, but Torii was an almost exact portrayal of my own first love (except I'm not a guy). It was so heart-wrenching I found myself crying and being overwhelmed with all those bitter memories I have from my own first love.
Just goes to show how you shouldn't let fear dictate how you go about in your life. Never be afraid of letting yourself express your love towards someone. It's the ONLY work of this mangaka that I have enjoyed.
ahh second story!
I didnt like the first story which was about travestite stuff ! and I was bored when I read this.I forced myself to finish.and then second story came up.ahh It was so good,so hearty ,so tearful an sooo romantic.I wish it was much more longer.I wanna see how the things would go on after this.third story was ok but not that so good.It was quite romantic if you consider about the stars stuff. the art was good.I could feel the emotions. I think you should skip the first,main story and read second and maybe third story I will give 6 .
Aww no :'(
The last story left me with a bitter taste in my mouth. I hated it. Hate hate hate. I know, thats really how things end up in real life, but this is yaoi, this is where guys ALWAYS get together, where guys always solve their problems through hot sex so why? Why did this story end up so sadly? So bitterly?
I hate this feeling. Really hate it. Makes me sad for gay people :'(
The rest was nice and fluffly and then BAM this came and weighed it down. What a cunning mangaka.
