From DMP:

Horyuu is a shining, good looking surfer idol. Shouin, who is enamored with him, is a calm, restrained and mature youngster. Though Horyuu is the polar opposite to the subdued Shouin, he cannot erase from his mind the secret confession which they shared...

* Contains two oneshots called Utakata no Hibi in vol. 1 and Beautiful World in vol. 2, prequel to Kurumi no Naka.

Utakata no Hibi -
At 35, an art teacher is given a choice between an operation with a success rate of only 30% or another three years to live without it. He refuses the operation and proceeds to live a kind of half-life. But that spring, he meets and has an affair with a loud and healthy student from Osaka. Still, the knowledge of his impending death keeps him from being fully involved.

Beautiful World - All Sohei wanted was to film the beautiful man he'd caught a picture of before. But is the price too high...
- Peccatore Sanctuary

Typical plot

Another type of cheesy yaoi manga. Hmm. Honestly saying, it didn't excite me that much. The storyline seems long and draggy. I don't know how I should feel when I read this manga, but it's just...boring. Maybe the plotline is very normal and it's like you can anticipate what's gonna happen next. *sighs* at least volume 2 is a little bit better. I didn't get to read the oneshots since it's not included when I downloaded this..oh well. I'll probably read it next time or so.

the oneshots

I re read the main story and it doesn't have a lot of appeal and even have some incoherency when it comes to the personalities. The 2nd vol was better than the 1st to me but however Shouin's character seemed to have taken a different path at least at the wedding reception.... Well for that particular accident you could say that even Houryuu's personality went a bit off. It s still can be enjoyed but does not strike me as sensei best work.

However the oneshots felt much more cute and enjoyable to read and all of them. They undoubtedly add some valuable content. You could also say my personal enjoyment have little to do with the quality but even if not realistic as to the events some times they did not seem swallow unlike the main story at some point smile

Too gay for me, no offense.

Ugh, while it's all very sweet and dandy, I feel like I'm reading a shoujo manga. Too many "I love you" and 'I'll do anything for you" and 'I miss you" and "I can't live without you" not to mention the misunderstandings, and crying and sulking and just.... *shudder.* I can't believe I'm saying this but this manga is toooo gay for me. Even the chapter titles make me cringe: I mean, "Honey honey sugar?" wtf? These boys don't talk or behave like boys at all. In fact, I bet if you make Shouin into a female, edit the dialogues a little, you can pass this off as a shoujo manga without anyone being the wiser.

Though it started off really nice (I thought the secret confession thing was rather sweet), the plot staled quickly after the first chapter. Like with anything sweet, if you consume too much of it, it'll give you a stomach ache. By the time I got to "Honey Honey Sugar," I knew this wasn't my cup of tea.

So anyway, if weak, effeminate ukes are your thing, and reading lots of lovey-dovey dialogues is fun for you, then this will leave you very satisfied. Me... I'll pass.

It's the emotional journey that counts

The emotional journey is what counts in this two-volume set (referring to the English release). Normally, I like a healthy dose of smex in my mangas, but the story and feelings that develop throughout this one completely captivated me. It took me a couple reads to realise there's not all that much physical action in the series. The story and the beautiful art carried me away.

This is one of my all-time favorite series. Toko Kawaii creates a sweet and tender story of love between two people who aren't quite sure of themselves and so are having trouble accepting the wonderful relationship they have found with each other. Great art too. An all around excellent manga.

A very tender manga (despite the angst here & there which was done with the right balance). The emotions sucked me in & I felt for the characters alot. & of course Kawai sensei's art is always pretty!
