Yamada Yugi never disappoints me. The summary for this manga is a little misleading, because it only describes the first chapter. There is also the story of a couple that meets again after having broken up, a couple that loves each other very much but struggles with living together, and a man who is held captive out of revenge for a young man he rejected and ordered to "Die". Yamada-sensei does a fantastic job of playing with time in these stories. She tells them through events that happen out of order, yet flow beautifully. I love how she always manages to make her works original, and she's a genius at evoking emotion. Though the last story is a bit heartbreaking compared to the sweetness of the others, I still loved it, and I highly recommend reading this manga.

I am already a huge fan of Yamada Yugi's but damn, this manga blew my mind and made me fall in love even deeper.
The stories are all good! I loveeed the first one but I am very sad it's over so soon (only negative point about this whole manga).
The main story, about the fitness trainer and the Master of the bar was great as usual. I adore Yamada Yugi's sense of humor, it's one of the best out there, hands down.

But what really did it for me here was chapter 4 'Captive'. It is a must read!
Don't spoil yourself reading comments about it or anything, just read and enjoy!

Another great work - I have NEVER been disappointed by Yamada Yugi, she is easy one of the top BL Mangaka of all time.
Do yourself a favor and read this! (you might want to read the volumes in order though^^)
