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.

I am always absolutely in love with Yoneda Kou's work. They're so lovely I really don't have appropriately exuberant enough words for them.

I loved Shima's deadpan sense of humor whenever Togawa teased him. They had good banter between them!

It's such a sad story at parts. Shima can't have the things he wants (a family, children) just because he's gay. It makes me mad enough to cry, honestly. What stupid and damaging laws people have...

Shima was so sad trying to do the right thing, and Togawa was so sad when Shima basically told him not to be ridiculous, that what they had wasn't anything at all.

And this is I think the only thing I've read where the jealousy is more of a small joke than anything else (and it's done in a silly, funny way that's not ridiculous).

Mature discussion

This is one of those romance mangas that actually has poignant discussions about ideas and subjects in relationships. It tells you that your own emotional vulnerabilities and lack of trust in the other person is not just damaging toward yourself, but it also is hurtful toward the other person. Their conflicts are arguably justified. Shima distrust toward his own happiness and Togawa's feeling toward him is reasonable. Shima was hurt in the past and clearly hadn't gotten over it even when he is with Togawa. The social stigma of being in a gay relationship such as being unable to build the "traditional" family can be disheartening. And the yaoi conflict of having a straight guy fall for you gave Shima even more doubts.
The only qualm I have with this manga is that it's not very clear in showing passage of time and things feel like they're moving too fast. Also, it has some yaoi cliches, but they are not too distracting.

Please don't watch the live action movie for any other purposes beside out of respect for the author. The acting is horrendously clunky. The emotional expressiveness and nuances from the manga are lost. The cinematography is nonexistence (seriously, don't pan out of the characters when they're having emotional discussion because you can't see their face or emotions--unless, you're going for the sense of hopelessness of being unable to help them, but you still need lots of body movements and positioning to translate the emotions well)

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.

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! (^.^)
