Biwa was a fledgling screenwriter working at an American TV drama production company. After three years at the company, his big break has finally come. He's been named to a drama production team. But just before the team's first meeting, Biwa, distracted, slams into a man he doesn't know, who glares at him. It's Japan's top actor, Yamato Toyohira, the star of the drama! Biwa is supposed to be his assistant, but Yamato's arrogance is driving him crazy!

i actually liked this one ever so much better than body language. ok, so maybe that's not saying much. i appreciated the setting because it was reasonably well-researched, something which most BL authors/mangaka couldn't care less about doing, which is a pet peeve of mine. i also thought the writing was above average, with more complex vocabulary than the usual, and a natural flow in english -- kudos to the translator, kelly quine.

that said, the character development was lacking. despite getting an infodump about biwa's childhood and education at the very start, we actually didn't learn a whole lot about biwa, and we learned even less about yamato -- except that they both love american dramas and sitcoms. biwa has a rotten temper, and i didn't care for him much, because he always seemed to go a step too far when trading barbs with yamato. yamato starts out as a total twit, though he redeems himself fairly quickly. but biwa gets worse; he adds "emotional coward" to his traits. after most of the novel consists of them bantering, the ending is all milk and honey -- and frankly, not believable at all.

oh, and while i don't generally weigh the illustrations in BL novels in my final rating, they're pretty bad here; i didn't find either character's representation attractive.

that said, i read it through in one quick sitting, so it held my interest sufficiently, and i wasn't ever tempted to throw it against a wall, so it actually comes up slightly positive when compared with BL novels in general.

This was one sad train wreck of a story. Prepare for character development, or, hell, even character screen time, so to say, to be eaten up by a detailed explanation of the behind the scenes workings of American television. The ending seems rushed, like the author just remembered that, oh! this was supposed to be a love story, not a documentary. The characters emotions seem to sprout from no where after very little interaction, and even their motivations when dealing with each other seem completely forced. I can save you the trouble of reading this with this easy, easy outline.
-Actor is a dick
-Main character tells him 'Hey, you're being a dick'
-Actor stops being a dick
-They are now in love
-Buy a book on American television production
