Ahh this was really made for me. I love cooking, so the cooking sections I really find quite interesting. If there's a specific dish I am not interested in, it's laid out in a manner which makes it easy to skip. Aside from the food, the interpersonal relationships are great. Not just the couple, but the family, friends and coworkers I all found interesting and endearing in their own ways. This is also the absolute most realistic depiction I have seen(in manga) of not only adult gay relationships, but long term relationships in general. I love the way it shows the ways your priorities and relationships change as you get older. I have never ever read manga which had such an honest, relatable view of gay men with no pandering or fanservice, so I have a lot of respect for that. I want to force every teenage girl who's squeeed and said that they've learned a lot about gay men from yaoi to read this.

Food, food and more food

While the characters are gay, it is not the sole focus of their lives or this story.
The author has the ability to make an unfamiliar cuisine approachable. After several chapters, I have wanted to try one of the dishes presentable.
It is akin to being at a gay friend's house at dinnertime and hanging out in the kitchen.
Perhaps the best description -- food porn

How a mother accept her son to be gay?

Spoiler (highlight to view)
Kakei Shirou's mother fainted on the spot and slept for three days straight after she'd found out her son to be gay. She always encourage her son to let his colleague know that he's gay because there's nothing to be ashamed of. She even said that "Whether you're gay or a criminal, as your mother, I'm prepared to accept you fully as you are." :D
Kakei Shirou worries because he does not know how his mother really feels. He feels guilty. So he avoid to come home.
Noone's wrong here. They react in the best way they can. It may not feel right currently but time will fix it all. :)

gimmick manga

The slice-of-life story in this manga is really good. It's nice to read about an established gay couple who are happy together and not in denial or hung up on yaoi character archetypes. It's really really good.

However.

This manga revolves around a gimmick, so the plots of each chapter are constructed in aid of it. The gimmick? this is a recipe/cooking manga. There are several pages devoted to showing food preparation with recipe commentary by Shiro, followed by eating and appreciation by Kenji (or, more rarely, whoever else ends up eating the meal).

I really liked the slice-of-life bits, but I have absolutely no patience for manga that revolve around food and cooking to the point of listing out ingredients and processes and going into raptures over each little bit. (I should add that I do not enjoy food myself, and only eat because I must - perhaps if you do love food, you might enjoy these recipe scenes more than I do.)

The perfect little slice-of-life manga with a dose of comedy and BL at the same time. What more could I ask for? The characters are distinct and the main couple isn't your stereotypical yaoi pairing. Now if only this was licensed...

It's cute

The humor and relationship and the characters' worries are very well done.

However, although I know that these episodic tales are supposed to be the cute style of Yoshinaga Fumi, I think I'd prefer more of an overarching plot. I'm mostly saying this because I've read some of her other works, and there tends to be too much crack and little direction.

STILL. Love the soft art, and she's got a really good grip on the stereotypes and reality and such. smile

Slice of Life manga appeals to me the most and to me, Yoshinaga Fumi does this so well- with so much humour, too. The details in the recipes and cooking segments is so informative.
There was a comment that this work should be listed under shounen ai rather than yaoi because there's not much "action"- I agree.
But the "food porn" substitutes for "action" quite nicely!

this its the type of series i like. it has a kinda aura like nodame, tensai family, usagi drop, hourou, family compo... if you like that kind of mnaga you will like this one, and besides entropy allways makes great choices! i can wait good things from this one.
But one thing to say, this serie its made by Yoshinaga Fumi her works are main YAOI, and yeah this serie should be also clasificated as shounen-ai, the problem its that people often missunderstand the meaning of it, and waits for some "action" ¡it has none!. This one its a delicated story, and if you like simple deep things you will enjoy it. absolutly, this proves that the best genres are comedy JOSEI and SEINEN.

Both of the men act like men. Not only that, but they act gay (I don't mean stereotypical), know they're gay, and refer to themselves as gay. (This is rare, trust me.)
There isn't any out-of-place angst or drama. This story isn't sappy or mushy or anything of the sort (there aren't any shoujo sparkles or eyes the size of houses).
It's entertaining and funny while maintaining a sense of realism, and chapter two is practically etched into my memory from re-reading it.

Anyway, it's just a rather humorous story of two gay men living their daily lives in a generally peaceful manner. (Do yourself a favor and read it.)

I'm glad Yoshinaga-sensei got a good project with Kodansha, AND it's a story about a gay couple in a Seinen magazine!! I hope this is one of the titles that Kodansha brings over for their North American debut!! I'd buy in a second!
