Completely and utterly overrated
I don't get it...maybe i'm not reading this manga correctly, but this has got to be one of the most frustrating manga's that I've ever read in my life. How can you have 84 chapters on the same couple, b****ng and whining about the same bloody thing and then settling it with s*x, and then call it one of the best Yaoi mangas?
It was fine for the first 10 chapters, as a matter of fact I actually found the storyline kinda decent, and then it got to the 20th chapter, then the 30th, then the 40th and by the time it got to the 50th I was thought 'f**k this'. What am I going to gain by finishing this manga, I doubt some HUGE plot twist is going to appear...they'll probably just end up fighting and then having s*x -_- And by quickly scanning through all the chapters, that's all I could pretty much see.
The only thing that kept me going was the potential coupling of Miyazaki and Onozuka, but clearly that was all in my head (ironic to ship a non-canon Yaoi couple in a Yaoi manga). Although Miyazaki was a complete brat, I still saw some kind of potential in the couple, and if anything this probably would have distracted me from the fact that there is 84 chapters on the same couple.
Anyway, with that rant over (and i'm glad to get it out of my system) I still stick to the fact that this is an overrated manga, and I probably would have given this a 1, but for some reason I think that's probably too harsh...maybe its because i'm bitter about my couple not becoming canon xD

This is the first long yaoi series that i've read so far. Its one of the best for me!! And i really can't imagine myself reading this kind of genre in the past, but this series changed my views at all. I love it so much even if I'm not into yaoi but im working on it . Im also looking forward to the authors' other works. Iwaki and Katou HWAITINGG!! )))
I think it's already a complete scanlation
I love love love this series so much. I think Haru wo Daite ita is the one who made me a yaoi fan girl It has a lot of my 'thing' like younger uke, jealous and possesive lover, manly gay couple and hot smut too. Although it's a bit old, but it's acceptable art, and slowly grow into my liking.
Sorry, English isn't my first language. One thing: you won't waste your time reading this
Probably the best Yaoi out there!
Lovely art, lovely characters, and a lovely, slow, satisfying pace as the emotions of the main characters gets deeper and deeper. The events of the story are comprehensible and nothing feels forced or rushed. this story shows the progress of a realistic homosexual relationship between two straight guys, while they deal with their family and work related issues and help each other in overcoming their weaknesses and advancing in their life.
Love This Series But I think 14 Vol is Enough!
I just fired off an e-mail to sensei's website that I don't want her to continue Haru beyond the current 14 volumes. Instead I want her to continue & finish other series such as Secret Diplomacy, Boku No Koe & Kiss Ariki. I am amazed that her publisher is not counselling more self discipline to her. I definitely can't get away w/ so much unfinished tasks at my own work place!
Beautiful and Charming
I have to agree that as much as I love the story, the artwork in the beginning was something that was hard for me to look over but the improvement of the artwork from chapter 1 all the way to the end is shocking. The storyline also began to improve amazingly over time and i found myself enjoying every scene. Seems like i was one of those people who kept putting this manga aside but boy, was i ever wrong to do so. Haru wo Daite ita is definitely re-readable material! *sigh* oh how i will miss this series and all of its lovable characters <3
Beyound the words.....
I hate it so much!!!!!! Coz'I love it so much! I'd been seeing this manga for more two years but I didn't bother to flick a page even. Now, I'm addict to it serious. It's real strange to me since the whole manga is totally opposite to my tease. Role switch and celebrity couple themes are not my type. Manly couple...Gezz...it's used to be so creepy for me to read. Childish Seme? Hell, No! Manly uke? The worst! But, now, I think I really was too crazy that I neglect it for along time. This manga showed me the other side of my tease. Well, I fallen for Iwaki and Katou. First, I though that Katou is more suitable to be uke since he has cheerful personality and sorta cute. Iwaki, on the other hand, is quiet and very considerate (and older too ^^) which made him more mature than Katou. (I sound kinda tradition.^^) But, as I through the manga, I fallen for the way they are. Katou showed his dominant over Iwaki and Iwaki, too, was pampering Katou alot. I feel like Iwaki was acting like very mature and bossy lady who fallen in love with younger man. Both of them are beautiful and handsome at the same time and cute too, especially when they jealous and possessive over each other. Their belief in their love is awesome. This is something this manga attract me. It's really realistic, awesome, natural and...it's beyond the words to describe how incredible this manga is. It's quit long but I don't get it enough of those two. Really really love it! And, I totally recommend this manga for those who hesitate to try like I used to. Just try it. You will fine it worth!

The side story Winter Cicada is by far the manga story that has shaken my heart the most. Actually, I have never cried as hard with any other manga or movie. I felt for every character.
I wish there was more manga like this one.
Like one of the previous reviewers mentioned, Sorry for ignoring this manga for so long! X( I've been reading yaoi for almost two years now and I came across this series two years ago! It's not that I didn't want to read it, but there was this "later" attitude I always had regarding this manga maybe because it's not a one shot or one volume-d like most yaois.
I generally never like manly gay couple but surprisingly, when the seme and uke kept shifting, I kinda like it. A lot. I always wanted Kouta to be the Uke but it was Iwasaki's nature that made him more like a uke. An extremely good read! Highly recommended! Better that Ayano Amane (Sorry If I got the name wrong) The latter's work is great but it's too violent and unrealistic although her art is better ^_^
I was not interested in it at first since I hate actor stories, since news always filled with their BS and the art was not my cup of tea but I still gave it a try. It turns out that the story is awesome. I cant believe I finished it. This is such a good yaoi where the characters slowly grow up and still love each other after their marriage. Their sex scenes are so hot. It has almost every fetish, beach sex, public sex, car sex, kitchen sex and reversible couple. Both of them are hot and cute at the same time. Definitely recommended.
