On the first day of Shima's new job he met a man with a hangover in the elevator. That was his first meeting with his new boss, Togawa. Though Togawa seemed rude and cross, Shima was drawn to the kindness beneath his rough facade. Both men harbor a painful past but unlike Togawa, who was open with his feelings, Shima seems unable to move on.

Live action version!!!

I don't really have much to say about this manga. It's good but kind of forgettable. I recently saw a live action version of this manga, however, and the live action is honestly amazing! And not just by live action standards either. Seriously, go watch it!

I usually don't like giving full scores, but this manga is really very good compared to others so I thought it was fair. Its well written, and the characters are realistic. The main character, Shima, was given an interesting background story which resulted in his current insecurities and awkward behavior, and Yoneda Kou did really well in slowly developing his character so that he eventually becomes more accepting of his situation. I re-read it every once in awhile and its still just as beautiful as the first time.

Great slice of life manga

Yoneda Kou writes great manga, and this one is no exception. Quiet, slow-building, and intriguingly introspective, the author invites us to see into someone else's life. The synopsis already states everything that can be said about the story without spoiling it, so I'll just say that the characters' emotions and the tension is palpable on every page and the story is a wonderful reading experience you should not miss!

I totally loved this series. Both the couples were beautiful and honest and caring. I am so glad that they got a movie for this- they deserved it. The love scenes were heartwarming. I still look at it sometimes and it fills me with awe. The story was well carried, climax was wonderful. Whether you are a yaoi lover or not, definitely try this.

Seems like I can't get enough of it. Today was the 3rd time I read this one, the second time being not so long ago. It's just amazing. Indeed, the plot might not be unique or something but the way the story is told and how it is drawn lets me breathless. I can barely keep it to myself, I feel like shouting how much I like this manga!

Honestly, the story is pretty cliche. But somehow, YONEDA Kou managed to take such a overused and abused formula of yaoi and turn it into something absolutely spectacular. There were so many moments in the manga where it all seems to be done before, but the characters are so indepth and so likable that I didnt mind at all. It makes you laugh but also cry at the same time. Their dialogue are always so witty and moving even when it is translated. This is one of the only yaoi mangas that I would never tire myself of reading and I would usually read it again when nothing else is updated.

Not as good as Saezuru, but cute.

I had no idea that this was from the same mangaka who wrote Saezuru Tori wa Habatakanai. I'm aghast, because I know I have totally found the greatest yaoi mangaka ever. Although this manga wasn't super totally great, it kicked off pretty well and I actually appreciate the side story since the main one seems to be in a ditch at the moment. I love Deguchi and the drama is completely real. And although Shima was likeable at first, he's going down the path of the crying, lacking in confidence typical uke...

Unlike Yashiro and Kage and D (in Saezuru Tori wa Habatakanai), the characters in this story kind of "fall in love" without a reason. Especially at the begin, it felt a little rushed and without any...reason! But I forgave that, because it was obvious that Togawa and Shima are meant to be. But Onoda beginning to like Shima was strange, and happened...because of what? He looked cute? Idk, it just lacked the resolve Yashiro/Kage/D (I can't remember the name) had, but I'm glad the mangaka got better in this and made progress. The drawings are nice though. 7/10

OH, AND I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE SHIMA'S EX-BF <3 I just love the whole concept of him still loving Shima and all. It's cute as hell, I want to see sooo bad.

One of my all time favorites

When I read manga most of the time if their really good I'l revisit them once or twice, but this manga has me coming back so much I've lost track of how many times I've read it. To me Yoneda sensei always has this slow but keep you on your toes plot and character development, and I love it. It's not rushed and not slow either, it make me feel like I'm there with the characters because the emotions are well displayed. One thing is for sure I love every character in this manga so much I can't even pick a favorite. Basically this is a masterpiece in my opinion as well as her other works! (^.^)

This manga got me crying river over how beautiful their love is. I'm deeply touched. This is definitely one of the best yaoi I've read so far and one of the very few that managed to make me cry.
Absolutely recommended, whether you're a yaoi fan or not.

This is heartbreaking. Why do I do this to myself? No, Doushitemo Furetakunai is not a tragedy. It's love, and that is why it hurts so much. It is so beautiful, so sincere, so unlike anything else. I don't see why would anyone find this anything other than magnificent. It is so conventional you could've been reading a book on real life, and yet it breaks every convention you can possibly know of, striping out of any cliché, giving you nothing but itself in the most beautiful, simple form: again, love.

I came across this series and my eyes twitched a little. I have never heard of the artist, I read no review, no line from the summary, the art didn't seem anything in particular, and the title sounded cliché enough. I was so wrong, and I am so grateful I didn't give up before I even started, which is something that happens more than I would like to, really.

With this manga I laughed, I cried, I lost my breath, I nearly lost my consciousness, and the worst thing of all, I remembered what I thought was buried deep within me. It was a turmoil of emotions, from beginning to end. I seldom give a straight 10/10 to a one-volume thing, but Doushitemo Furetakunai deserves so much more than that. When it was over, I just felt so happy it was ridiculous.

I guess I can't ever go back to the cheesy, clichéd, uke-based wussiness of mainstream m/m manga. After this wonderful piece of art, I am done with it. I can't thank Yoneda Kou enough, and I can't wait to read more of this artist's work.
