Iida falls for an introvert, Sakamoto. Love happens to grow. Life is a timeless journey, but despite that, you can capture those precious moments. This is pretty much how this manga is read and I loved it for its sweet message. The manga revolves around the two male protagonists and photography, and since I love photography I was able to relate to Iida many times. The feelings of wanting to make something precious timeless holds true. Anyways, the chemistry is there, so you won't be disappointed, despite Sakamoto's stubbornness.

This was a very nice and touching read. I'm always fascinated by the power of photographs and I think that is what is portrayed very well in this manga. I also like, when one protagonist isn't too fond of the other in the beginning. It was nice and slow, just like I like it. The art was good, too.

I like the main two, I like the friends, I like them all. smile

They weren't painfully cliche or anything, which is amazing and I love it.

I don't love it as much as the first time I read it, but it is fun and cute.

This was a great story, but why did i get the sense that there should be more? I almost thought i had missed reading the last chapter, when i double checked that was all....

Perfect, just perfect this one will stay as an all times favorite.

I love the story, the characters, even the supporting ones, all have great personalities. Sakamoto is always true to his feelings and acts on them, without being pathetic, this is a great achievement in a manga. Shoukichi always thinks of what's best for Sakamoto, and even though he sometimes exagerates he doesn't fall in extremes.

The art is great and I also like that both of them have about the same height and clothes size, at least in the last chapter they do.

Everything it's just wonderful (^w^) 10+/10

I've read this so many times. It would be such a WASTE to NOT read it! =_= The characters are so real and cute. Best of all? The love is belieavable.

Unlike with other yaois, I wasn't second-guessing the love they had for each other. I was certain that those two were fully in love and it was nice seeing Sakamoto finally realize his feelings. It's nice to see such a mature Uke that's both cute yet smart. And I found it a major plus to read most of the Seme's point of view. He's so flipping cute with the way he tries to control himself around Sakamoto<3<3

The art, as always, very clean and beautiful, nothing less from Natsume-sensei. In all, PLEASE READ! Trust me, you won't regret it =) It's hard not to fall in love with this manga.

Haven't read yaoi recently and meanwhile I started to have more demands. I read one that has high rates and didn't like it. But this one was really really nice =).
The art is nice and the story doesn't fell rushed. Not very developed either, however it gives a warm feeling. A good read.
I hope to read more from this manga-ka.

One of the cutest and funniest manga I've read lately. Iida has a charming and innocent allure about him. His good humor, optimism and carefree manners are infectious. Watching him throughout the manga, you find yourself cheering for him, wishing him luck in his conquest. And his traits stand out even more against Sakamoto's gloomy and aloof personality.

This manga is a clear depiction of opposites attract but it goes beyond that showing that even two very different characters can find happiness together, each affecting and changing the other. So if you want funny scenes, adorable characters and a very realistic setting, this manga is for you.

Only 1 chpt. so far, but I can see potential in this. The dark-haired one (hm, forgot the name) is such a prototype to so many ppl I knew during HS & even college. Now, if only it could expand on this & mebe veer away from the annoying yaoi-cliche storylineconfused But it IS yaoi, so, I'm just hoping the story will focus on this dude more & his issues.
