Slightly above verage
I wanted to like this one, I really did, I mean the stories all have potential appeals to them at the beginning and I was honestly looking forward to reading them. But then towards the end they fall rather flat and unsatisfying (to me at least). I would've love to see something more, even if just a little, so as to buy the couple's relationships and development. They don't seem very convincing at all in variable ways to be honest. The art is decent though, that's probably this mangaka's strongest visible point I've observed to this date. I tried to be more tolerant of the whole manga but I guess I can't do more than I already have.
I came to this manga after reading 700+ yaoi and after sifting through the dung-heap to find the good ones, this seems like a jewel to me. Honestly, I don't understand why people are complaining about it. This manga definitely has some originality. I liked how the mangaka dealt with the kinda realistic issue of a man wanting to both top and bottom, and I liked the cute little oneshots that followed, some better than others. The art wasn't revolutionary, but I wasn't expecting that, so I found it pleasantly viewable and at times downright sexy (I'm looking at you, tall, dark, handsome and glasses in chapter 6, even if you are a strange one). The art improved as the manga progressed. Despite a couple bad reviews, this manga does not have a 7.7 rating for nothing. Chapter 8 is great.So give it a try: you might be fairly surprised. If not, then you haven't lost anything except a little bit of your time. This is a refreshing manga that has a quirky view on the stories it tells, with lovely characters and nice art x

I liked it
There seem to be a couple of people who forgot the concept of a manga is not to be realistic but to improvise the writer and readers mind, especially a yaoi manga. I like this. I don't know why so many people disliked it and why the rating looks low.
I love this manga because I'm not picky. Although the beginning did not appeal to me, I endured and continued to read and found an insecure character who is just as developed as any other character I've read in the yaoi genre. All the other oneshots that followed were just as great as the main ones. I like how she, the author, continued the relationship of the first couple within one of those oneshots, creating an environment amongst those characters. I love reading about things like that. And that really short oneshot at the end of chapter six. How can you hate that?
Do not be discouraged to read this because so many other people thought it was a waste of time. It's actually not.
6) More Pain
Rating for 6) More Pain only. (The rest were mediocre at best.) This one shot is amazing--it's a theme you don't see explored with maturity very often. The only downside to this oneshot? Its snapshot format.
Only the first and last!
Okaaaaaay, so I found the other stories pretty weird! And the only story that kept me going is probably the first story and the last one. Other than that....it feels...weird yet haunting. I don't know how to explain this feeling but it's probably stories that will make me skip them.
all around quite enjoyable
the stories are a bit uneven, but primarily i enjoy yamada's art, which isn't pretty, but very expressive -- i'm really glad to see more and more mangaka who develop their own style separate from the typical shoujo -> bishounen BL with its impossibly beautiful men. she also has a sense of humour i can understand (even if i don't necessarily share it). i'll be watching this mangaka.
Not your usual lovey-dovey BL.
I enjoyed the first two couples, whose stories dealt with a little more romance, while the rest of them were more angst-y and some included S&M. I suppose if you like dramatic, angst-filled stories, this will be very interesting for you. All were short, the "Eye" story being so short that it seemed to lack any point at all - perhaps it was meant to be more mysterious? I have no idea, but it certainly wasn't my cup of tea.
Not as good as I expected
Because of the rating, I thought it has to be at least a good manga. But IMO it's not. The art is so-so, some of the drawings are pretty nice but that's all. The stories are strange and some of them seem to have no point. My favorite pairing is Yoshinari and Akio, though it is far from being developed...
is Kishida a complete moron? if he has a lover and he is interested in being the bottom, why not talk to his partner instead of going to a whore house? he could have even gone to the internet and done research, but how can he think that its fine to cheat so long as u imagine its your partner, its still cheating. although, he does claim to not have being able to do it at the end. supposedly he only got information, but im curious about what he actually did at that whore house, his partner should have dumped him for being so stupid. it bothers me that he is so willing to cheat on his partner and he doesnt seem to feel guilty about it, if he wanted to please his aprtner, he would have just talked to him and not even consider cheating.

The art was really nice. Chapters 1-3 were great. I liked the couple, and the fun situations like the role switching and the nephew misunderstanding. Chapter 4 started very well, but ended ubruptly... Same with chapters 5-6. Chapter 5 was an interesting school drama thing, chapter 6 was really great with the fetish thing, but ended without much happening (still good though). Chapter 7 was 'eh?~'. So short, and focused on a glasses fetish
Anyways, since it seems to be a oneshot collection sort of thing, I wonder if some genre should be added...
Although the endings weren't so great, I still give this a 9. Very enjoyable.
