I don't know why everyone is bitching about the "art", because I find it absolutely lovable and tolerable enough unlike some other mangas I have read that have so shitty art I could puke thousands of times from just merely looking at them. The characters were drawn well, and I really am not going to bitch about it because it's obvious I'll never be able to draw like her (her? or him? I'm guessing she is a female).


Wataru was my favorite throughout the whole story. He is pervert, but still pretty cute. I love it how is not "gloomy" and always-serious type of guy. He is funny, sweet and I love it. I like it how he is messy (I shouldn't really use the word messy, I think it should be "careless" or the person who needs to get taken care of). I can relate to him. I'm very messy and I'm too careless. He is so cute. Even though I was surprised how he would always take care of his face and all. Totally and absolutely like a girl! He even thought that Shuzou used nailpolish! Isn't that just hilarious?


Shuzou was really, a tsundere. I liked him at first and forced myself to not to like Wataru because I've always liked tsunderes like him. But failed anyway, lol. I liked the way he was literally "the mother" of those two. He is always taking care of Shuzou and is like his mother, He is just too caring! Oh God, I'd love to have someone as him! I wasn't really fond of his "seriousness" by the way. But I still liked it in the end, because the seriousness has humor in it too! (please, don't even get me started about the humor, I won't be able to write so many things)


Both of the characters were equally beautiful. Even though the story or characters don't have a unique kind/type/personality, even though it's kind of cliché,I still loved it. Because the humor was real, like fucking real and I'd love to re-read it again anytime soon!


Let me get started with the art again.
All mangakas have a different style of drawing. I don't think it would be very nice if all mangakas had the same art-style. Different types of art style makes the stories different from each other which is a plus point for all of you "It's clichéful and not good art!!" bitches.

I'd recommend this to anyone. Like anyone. If you're hoping for a good read with good humor, this manga is perfect for you. I don't know about others, but I love it. And I would like to read other stories with humor like this one.

It is funny and enjoyable and ridiculous. They are so stupid lol denying their obvious feelings, i just hope that they both confess on each other the ending left me hanging and i really like the art.

The ending didn't left me satisfied. The order of the story is pretty repetitive but it was short enough that I could tolerate it. Not much romance but it's something light to read for the comedy.

Seriously the best thing I've read in a long time, and with art I really like, too! (I honestly don't know why people are hating on the art, wtf? It's stylized and unusual, but good.) But such an abrupt ending, wtf?? Brought my rating down from a 10 to an 8. So disappointed. sad

I did not like this manga, beyond art be ugly, the characters only think of legs ... They live together and do not want to admit that they like, it is a very boring story, least the last two storys.

I normally don't get bothered by the art of a manga, but this kept distracting me making me think 'the art is bad'. I didn't find it funny either, and the whole storyline was a bit dull.
I wouldn't reread it, nor would I recommend it to anyone.

Comedy at it's best

Absolutely hilarious XD Unfortunately, as others have also mentioned, there is no conclusive ending as neither of them admit to being in love with the other, and normally that would disappoint me. But to be honest, they are a couple, even if they don't officially announce it or anything. Or even if they don't admit it to themselves.

Besides, this is very much a comedy, so the lack of solid romance doesn't overly bother me. I think it's clear enough that they do love each other and will always be together (even if it's in a slightly dysfunctional way), so that's pretty sweet. After all, even though they both constantly fail in their own romantic relationships, their only successful relationship is with the other ^_^ Shows that they're meant to be, no matter how deep they are in denial.

Anyway, like I said, the comedy is the main focus in this. I especially loved the *sniff sniff* "Yep. I knew it. Homos." scene XD lol, so funny.

Nice Art, Great Story

I looove this one. Every once in a while I read this manga again. And everytime I find it fun and entertaining, yet very romantic. This is a favorite yaoi of mine regarding the storyline. I like it a lot when romance and comedy are perfectly mixed together in a - in my opinion - quite refined way. The art was very good but not great, hence the rating.

Laugh out loud hilarious comedy

Okay, this is nothing for people who want pretty art and sexy men!
It's pure comedy and I oftentimes didn't know what was going on exactly but it was still funny.
Two straight men, one a lover of big breasts, the other a leg/foot fetishist, and somehow they still keep ending up with one another!
I enjoyed the type of humor in this work, though I must admit that some pages had way too much wall of text and I didn't read all of it, but then again, just looking at the pictures was enough sometimes!
The art is funny but not pretty or anything, and the manga ends a bit abruptly for my taste.
All in all though, a solid comedy, not much plot but plenty of lol moments!
And beware of the beer! Cause it makes straight men sleep with one another over and over and over and ...

Weaponized denial.

....I hope actual guys with homosexual tendencies in Japan are not as much in denial as they are here. Because if they have even just 1/10 of it...hoo boy.

It's very comedic, very funny and pokes with the 'sleeping with the rival' storyline, but...the denial bugged me. The pretending to be a straight -- or at least, to deny the feelings between each other, bugged me. The lack of resolutions in the storyline bugged me.

It's not Kunieda-sensei's fault as it is the character's own fault, but STILL.
