Oh, god damn it, it's sooo cute!! o>w>o
I was screaming like a fangirl while reading this! At the beginning Maki doesn't realize his feelings and keeps making the most heartbreaking expressions! And he says Shinji is cute, but [i]he is the one who's actually adorable! Even the way he talks, swearing out of nervousness in every freaking sentence.

This manga really surprised me. I thought Maki was a reluctant uke and Shinji was the gentle seme who waits, then I though "oh, no Maki's actually a sulking seme who can't accept his feelings and Shinji is the uke who's too afraid to do anything"...and what did it turn out to be? Well, read and find out, but it will never stop bringing you to the edge of your chair! And not in the disgusting reversible kinda way (because I don't like it), but in the good, exciting one! They're even both kinda semukes!

The characters themselves are likable in every way. Maki is - and nothing describes him better imo - childish (heh, love how he says Shinji's a kid when he's the real one!), immature and sweet in his bad-boy way.
And Shinji just kept surprising me, when I thought he was cool and distant, he suddenly had fragility to him, and then acted all hard-to-get when I never expected that!

But what amazed me the most is that, even though this is a one-shot, it is really well developed. The characters are very complex and just as stereotypical as it's required, but not over-the-top! Even their feelings and the fact that, in so little, Ike-sensei could tell a deep story. I even cried when I thought Shinji waited so many years - because believe me, I know how hard unrequited love is - to finally be happy. That's how intense this little 30-something paged thing is, even when Shinji describes his love for Maki.

Well, I really adored it! So much love in such a short amount of pages!
It left me with the "ahh, why isn't there more?!" feeling, only to answer to myself "because then it wouldn't be that good".

This just became my favourite one shot ^^ First of all, right from the starting gate the characters attracted me. The chemistry between them is very amusing as well as their way of dealing with their situation xD secondly, though its short, its so sweet. Finally, the art was gorgeous - i love this art style and i'm going to now stalk to the mangaka for new works.

Refreshing, and gorgeous in its subtlety.

This is one of my favorite one-shots ever because of how different it is. It takes the standard "unlucky childhood friend" trope and goes in a new direction with it by having the supposedly straight object of affection (Maki) be the one to take initiative, and the openly gay friend in love with him (Shinji) is the one to resist him because he's already found a comfortable distance from him. I thought the confrontation scene was touching, adorable and sweet. And I liked that the sex was realistic: not every guy's first time is going to be magical and mindblowing! But despite the initial pain it was still very romantic.

I hope there continue to be more mangas written about Shinji and Maki! I'd love to read more of them.

This oneshot was decent--the art was great but not exceptional like the demon in The Prince, The Devil and the Wizard and the characters were vivid. The fast pacing was too fast and all surface.

It was like the reader was invited in to only the most critical mass point in their relationship and it flashed so fast, that there was no chance to connect with the individuals. But I wanted to.

This story has so much potential! I wish it was longer or that there will be more written about the characters in future stories.
The drawings & dialogue are great! I admit that the flow could have been better but I still enjoyed it overall.

I love the dialogue, the art is nice. I would have loved to see more of this couple (past & future). I can't help but like this classic story line of friends with unrequited love...but of course I have to have happy endings
