it's not like i really expected much depth from misasagi, but this one seriously pointed at there being some... and then it didn't happen. too bad, because it felt very promising while hisaya and kouju were getting to know each other. but then *boom*, kouju fell in love overnight, and the story turned mostly to comedy and became pretty standard (though fortunately the attempted rape didn't materialise as the real thing). it's not bad, mind you, but i would have liked it better if i hadn't gotten my hopes up.

the art isn't particularly good here; i think the manager looks better than the purported idol, which brings the story down another notch -- though the chibi are good. there's also not much sex (nothing graphic). people who like simple comedy in their BL might enjoy this.

oh, the deux edition does not use honorifics -- if you want me to buy, guys, don't take away important cues like that. guess what, even americans can learn a few words of japanese if you give them culture notes.

Promising Surface But Doesn't Dig Too Deep

Kouju was an interesting enigma: sometimes he was a mature, wise old man; at other times he was obviously a vulnerable and hurt child. He falls in love fast with his new manager, but it is believable for a vulnerable personality such as his which is aching for acknowledgement.

There were even two likeable, snappy females in the mix of characters: a young girl who also had that child-adult mix like the model, and the bossy sister!

This story seems to constantly oscillate between serious--the heavy topic of one's very existence--and light-hearted humour.

The outfits of the model caught my eye the most out of the art. The facial expressions and the movements of the body were done well, but not outstanding. The play out of the scenes were fast and easy to follow.

The conclusion was disappointing because in the end, the entire story promised more on the surface than it actually ever delves into below.
