Description
1. Someday We'll....
Iku and Keita are childhood buddies. Naturally, having been friends for as long as they can remember, when one started to play baseball, so did the other. During their final year in middle school, Keita's baseball career abruptly ended as a result of the severe injuries he sustained when saving Iku from being hit by a truck. Presently, they go to the same high school. But ever since that accident, Iku has distanced himself from both the game and his friend, presumably out of guilt. What does Keita think about this?
It also contains a couple of other short stories such as Utsukushii Asu and Sakura No Junrei.

2. The Sakura Pilgrimage
Sugaya believes that guys like Fujishiro, a highly accomplished student rumored to be the next student council president, live in a completely different world and have no impact on his life. That changes one fateful day when he catches Fujishiro making out with a teacher after school. Fujishiro pays Sugaya for his silence, but not without a parting jab at how easily Sugaya's confidence was bought.

It's Good for When You Want to Feel Happy

Eh...some jabs at the other reviewers here be warned.

The art is very good and NOT AT ALL AVERAGE (how dare you say that.) It has a realistic touch and really most of the one-shots were pretty realistic in plot. Like I could certainly see these situations happening to me or something (including "The Beautiful Tomorrow".)

And of course it's going to be ordinary it's not some fantasy novel or anything it's slice of life what are you thinking?

It isn't ground-breaking or like OOOOO SUCH A GREAT AND MOVING MANGA but if it's a rainy day or maybe you just wanna smile I'd certainly recommend it to you.

Chapter 1, 5 and 6 all belong to the same couple and all of them are great. I think I'd have liked them even without the small portion of shonen-ai it actually has, on Keita's existence alone. He really is the most lovable character in the bunch. The rest of the stories are quite enjoyable as well. If you like a spring-flavoured tale of boys love, with a realistic mood and wonderful art style, you shouldn't miss out on this.

I like all the stories. Mainly because they all have this sort of slow reality to them, like a philosophical touch or maybe because the characters are somewhat introverted they just think beautiful thoughts. I just really enjoyed the narrating thoughts. I liked the first story a lot. I really love love love the art. I definitely recommend this manga. These are definitely worth the read. I mean it wasn't ground breaking or anything but as far as BL oneshots go this is better than a lot of other stuff I have read where there is no emotion or connection to be felt.

Really loved the extra(sequel to first oneshot)

The first one and its sequel are really sweet and sentimental. Loved it! Highly recommended to shounen-ai fans. Keita especially matures and seems really wise by the sequel.
The other oneshots are nice, worth reading once.

I agree with calstine's comment in some ways, for one not all the stories are "oh so amazing" ( the only story that I really liked was not even mentioned in the description,"the beautiful tomorrow") the baseball story was just boring and not special...(also, I know that that one guy has an accent, but to make it where you have to reread some lines...just didn't go along with me.) and the "The Sakura Pilgrimage" was too stupid and unsatisfying... now, though this can be said about those two, "the beautiful tomorrow" is an exception, I would certainly recommend you to read this one, it was a nice feeling and had a bit of humor.without this story, I would rate this a five...

Now, very unlike calstine's comment, I could say that the art is very nice and it didn't get in the way of reading this story at all.

intelligent, sexy shounen ai!

The highlight is the stunning art. These boys are sharp, sharp, sharp. The bold, vivid lines and clear characterization captured me from go. The stories themselves are good as well; they don't bring the art down whatsoever. The best story was "A Beautiful Tomorrow." It barely had any sexual intimacy in it at all and yet it was sizzling with emotion!!! Kyugo-sensei knows how keep my attention with her heart-rending plotting.

Boys who are boys.

I love that the boys in this story actually look like and act like boys! It's such a rarity. Plus, I like how the author doesn't just solve everything with a kiss; people actually have to talk things out to solve their problems! Examples:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The baseball story where the guys kiss, but they don't do anything else. Eventually they talk things out and then they become a couple - and even then they don't hook up. Or the story where the kid comes back drunk, (alluded to) kiss, they talk, and then they get together.
All in all, it's good proper shounen ai with a more realistic approach.

I can't understand what all the gushing comments and high ratings are about. I've read plenty of shounen-ai manga, and I can safely say that there is nothing that sets Bokura ni Matsuwaru Etcetera apart from every other collection of BL one-shots out there. It's not that the stories are bad - it's just that they're so very...ordinary.

These one-shots aren't funny, sweet, witty, cleverly-plotted or unpredictable in any way; each is generic and cliche to the core. The only one that's at least fairly down-to-earth is the chapter about the two popular high-school boys and their complicated 'love lives'. But being neither a fan of, nor a sympathizer with, slutty teenagers, I still didn't like it much.

The art is also nothing special. (If you want beautiful illustrations, turn to Abe Miyuki or Sugiura Shiho) In other words, the so-called 'mysterious charm' everyone seems to see here completely escapes my notice. This is precisely why I've come to severely mistrust the ratings and comments here at MU.

If you have half an hour to kill, go ahead and read this. But if you're looking for something unique, comedic or endearing, well...better keep looking, since you won't find it here.

My favorite story.   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0
by AeeDee
October 9th, 2009, 8:12pm
The main story is seriously my favorite. Ever.
I instantly became a Kyuugou fan when I read it, and I still reread it on many occasions. It made me smile, it made me laugh and it made me cry. Kyuugou really knows how to pull on the heart strings, but in a good way. You get this warm and fuzzy feeling, that's genuine and real.

This book, as a whole, proves why Kyuugou is quickly becoming quite popular - the characters are fleshed-out, they have unique personalities, and even in the story I liked the least (the shorter second story, for the curious), I still get a strong sense of who they are, and the authentic emotion in the story.

The third story is nearly as strong as the first, and is very moving in a sentimental, well-intentioned kind of way. The story's a tad more unconventional, and the material could make some readers uncomfortable, or surprise them - but as surprising as it is, it's oddly appropriate in an intriguing kind of way. I wouldn't have thought it'd work, but it does.

I'm rambling, but my point is this:
READ THIS, or you're missing out on a wonderful book. Far better, more realistic, and more down to earth than almost anything out there.
