I really liked the art, the plots were kinda confusing, though. The timeline was weird, sometimes I thought that I skipped at least five pages 'cos it felt like there were missing parts, but there weren't. Also, not one story was finished, they all had an open ending. I am giving it 8/10 because I really liked the art and the stories themselves, the only thing that's dragging down the score are those endings.

I really enjoyed the way it was drawn, but as far as the story/stories, they were confusing. It was like they skipped several pages. I couldn't follow it and it was disappointing. I just wish it was better written. I don't mind oneshots/short stories but at least make them make sense. I feel it was a waste of my time reading this.

Disappointing. The art is very fine, a bit rough, not shojo like. The characters are masculine and realistic (and hot). but I can't get immersed in the story. I think it was the second or maybe the third chapter, and in one of those, the plot was really confusing and hazy and you could see the strings too much, for instance it was too obvious that some events were simply an excuse for the sake of the plot.
There was a problem with the time line too: was the manager dating all these boys at any one time ?! As the story wasn't enough coherent i had a hard time reading it and ended up getting upset. Eventually, the end will leave you unsure and unsatisfied.

Like the previous reviewer, I also appreciated the mangaka's more "masculine" art style. I'm not a fan of the feminine boys so prevalent in yaoi. The stories had could have been really good if the mangaka had just expanded them a bit, but many felt like they were just cut-off. The premise and the characters were intriquing, but I felt the potential was wasted. The stories were just too short.

There are great and just ok stories in this collection, but by all means, do read it all for the last chapter- It left me wishing for a sequel! I love this mangaka's art style and the way she draws menswear. Right?
