From Vices and Devices:

Bright and early one Monday morning, Shino Yuzuru asks Seryou Touji out on a lark when they run into each other at the school gate. Seryou, who's immensely popular, has the odd habit of going out with anyone who asks him out first at the beginning of the week, then promptly dumping them at the end of it.

"Anyone" apparently includes male upperclassmen like Shino, and as a boyfriend, Seryou is perfect--unfailingly thoughtful and kind. Shino, obviously, has no intention of being in a serious relationship with Seryou. It's not like it's actually love or anything like that. ...Right?

I like this story, but I really can't say "It's the best thing ever!" Everyone seems to love it... So I wonder why I don't notice anything special about it?

And before all the fan-girls tell me to "Go back to reading the smutty yaoi you love so much, you b****!" I must make it clear that I infinitely prefer shounen-ai to yaoi: all of my favourites in BL genre so far have been non-explicit or very softcore works. Explicit smut bores me, so the lack of physical affection is by no means the issue I have with this series.

My first thought at the end of the series was that, while it's certainly true that they don't fall in love at first sight, I find it pretty inexplicable why they fell for each other at all, because nothing profound, touching or meaningful happens between them at any point during those 7 days. (In my opinion, Blue Sky Complex handles the "reluctant duo who end up slowly falling in love" theme much better than Seven Days does)

But the biggest flaw, in my eyes, is this: The major plot point regarding Seryou is the fact that he's been pining for his brother's girlfriend for a long time. And yet, the guy doesn't seem to have any problem blowing her off the moment he starts going out with Yuzuru! For someone who's been forever convinced of his heterosexuality, that's a pretty blatant case of Sudden Sexuality Switch -- especially considering how sexually confused and emotionally turbulent teenagehood is for most people. (See Hana wa Saku ka for a manga that handles the straight --> bi-curious --> bisexual theme much more realistically)

And the whole premise of "I'll date anyone who asks me out" is beyond weird, not to mention something that would definitely have caused a lot of trouble for Seryou. But in this case, instead of being labelled as an oddball and hated by all the other guys in the school (as well as by at least a few of the girls he's rejected), everyone treats it as being entirely normal! I'd have been willing to overlook that kind of weirdness in a comedy series, but this is no comedy, so...

I'm not dumb enough to expect 100% logical actions from characters in BL (or GL), but all these little "Huh, what?" moments build up to something that's just...too illogical.

Another con: during the mangaka's attempt to make the characters seem extremely pure, their personalities have disappeared into nothingness. Yuzuru in particular bored me to sleep.

The art is okay, though nothing special. Like in most BL manga, it's very simple and obviously hastily drawn with little attention to background details. But it isn't unpleasant and accomplishes its purpose (ie: conveying emotion) well.

I've only pointed out the faults because most of the other comments have reiterated the positive aspects many times over. I felt there needed to be some balance.

If you like pure, enduring, subtly romantic shounen-ai, Golden Days, Koori no Mamono no Monogatari, Shinkuu Yuusetsu and Silver Diamond are actually better choices, imo.

I really enjoyed this story. I bought it based on reviews and I'm glad I did. I've only had it for 1-2 weeks and I've already read it 3 times. I find myself picking it up again almost subconsciously, starting in the middle of one of the volumes and rereading this or that scene...

I feel like it's a simple, understated story that somehow ends up being very touching and, to me, beautiful.

I say 'understated' because in many BL manga that I've read (and manga in general with some sort of romance attached), it seems like many times they're heavy on the narration. When there is a significant event, such as a character realizes he/she loves someone else, most of the time it will straight out say in narration something along the lines of "I love him!" and give all the reasons why. What I really like about Seven Days is it isn't as heavy-handed. There are scenes where there is narration but there are other scenes where there isn't.

If a character realizes he loves someone else, in that page the panels may have no words-- just a progression from far to zooming in, with the entirety of the meaningfulness of that scene in his expression or the non-verbal communication between the two.

They also don't always speak in complete sentences. One character in particular has a tendency to just say what's on his mind, but not the context of it. So he may be thinking about a conversation he had with someone else and make a comment based on that, but the comment itself could seem ambiguous (like "it was just a prank") and without knowing what he's thinking, it could be misleading.

There are a few places where I still am not QUITE sure what they're really saying because they trail off before getting to the specifics but I actually love that about this series. It feels like every time I reread, I understand it a bit more. I was reading too quickly the first time to catch all the subtleties and upon rereading it feels like I notice another meaning to this or that panel. It isn't that the story itself is so deep, but that there are parts that are left a bit to the imagination, and other parts that rely on the reader to understand the characters and connect the dots about what he is really thinking now. It makes it a much more engaging to read.

I have to admit I both love and don't as much love the art. I really like it but there are a few parts where it throws me off a little-- the angles don't seem quite right, inconsistencies in the noses/eyes, their proportions seem off-- but then there's a panel where something hits me as beautifully done, and the women actually look like women and not men in drag-- so overall I don't have any complaints about the art. I think it fits the story.

One thing I like about this story is everyone is human. Some girls only see the surface, some like to tease others. There isn't much thought behind a guy with a guy vs a guy with a girl-- the characters just think in terms of love or like and don't even think to question anything else. And if the story starts out saying a character acts a particular way, it later shows that character acting that way naturally so it makes it feel more realistic.

I really wish there was more to this. I would have loved to read another 7 days, 7 weeks, 7 years-- even 7 more hours in their lives. It's a very nice story about people getting together but if you like to read about characters once they are together, it leaves off before you get to explore that much at all, sadly. I'll hold out hope that magically some day there will be more to read with these two...

Its like candy...short, sweet and just plain yummy. Its a wonderful read, the plot just flow like water. The artwork is gorgeous. As a critique, there are some bumps on the plot, but overall...i highly recommend it to anyone. Its a story that will just make you melt, and smile for the rest of the day.

The art is free and smooth, the characters are pretty down to earth and really likeable, and the overall plot- the dating for a week- is made believable. Also, what I like most about this manga, is that the story is not over-dramatic and that the relationship progresses well w/i those seven days. Seryo is not some overly emotional and traumatized guy, he is just a guy searching for someone to love in a manner he thinks most efficient; and Yuzuru is not some overly feminine guy who immediately falls in love with seryo after the first day

Firstly, this has got to be my number 1 at the moment, beating the yaoi and shounen-ai mangas I've read in my life, it will definitely stay in my top 10 for a while but I just don't know why... Why? The artwork wasn't that clean, the kissing scene was too short (duh, coming from a girl who reads explicit yaoi all the freaking time), the story was short (seven days... XD) but the was amazing... I probably won't remember the uke or the seme's name but I will definitely remember the depth this story gave off! It's hard to portray the struggles of both party when usually a mangaka focuses on either side of the story. But this story was just perfect when it came to development. The seme's trying hard to make the uke understand while the uke is trying hard to make the seme understand! In the end some knots weren't loosen yet but it was a happy ending! It is well written! (If you had to write a story that spans over a week in 3 years, I think you'd understand..)

People who have yet to read this manga but instead is reading my comment, plz get your eyes off this page and on to the first page of this much cherished manga! Go I tell you! GOOOOOOO!!!!

I have not gotten the fuzzies in a while, when reading BL lately, but this one totally did it for me. It had complex characters, enough drama to keep me wondering what will happen in the end, and really expressive art. Gah, couldn't sensei just keep on writing about these characters a volume or two more?!

I'm not really sure why I love this story so much. I've been reading yaoi and BL for over 10 years now, so I've read it all. And really, this isn't anything unique but if this was ever released in English I would actually buy a carbon copy. I just loved it that much. Maybe it was simplicity of it. I can't explain it, but I'd recommend 7 days.

It was the cover that made me read this manga. Because seriously, how beautiful is that cover? It's amazingly drawn and the blue colour is very beautiful. *sigh* I can stare at it forever.

And the story doesn't disappoint. I loved the characters and the plot is something I've never seen in a manga before, and the fact that the two guys' relationship progresses slowly makes the manga believable and interesting. Very highly recommended, even to those who have never tried the shounen-ai genre, but want to!

Even though I've only read 1 chapter, I've really enjoyed what out so far. The characters are realistic and likable, with interesting relationships for those who like BL kind of slice-of-life stories. If you're feeling jaded from the "OMG-Sees-Guy-Falls-in-Love-Right-Away" stories out there, this would be a great story for you (also, it helps that the guys are quite good-looking... Xd).
