Not Reverse Couple at all

Just putting it out there if you were like me and hoping for a reverse.
The uke never changes although he does say that he "wants" to top.
Its hinted that he'd never will pretty much. :/

Mediocre, stereotypical stuff.

The first story's uke really is sweet! Two strong sports boys; even though the uke looks girly he is strong enough and doesn't have the kind of character that would take shit from his seme!
But what I liked the most was that when the uke said he wanted to be the top, though reluctant at first, the seme actually gave in and was willing!!!
Okay, he's not happy about it but the thought counts! That's the spirit!
This is so rare; most often the seme will say "I love you a lot but I cannot be the bottom!" wtf?
I really enjoy ukes who freely are the bottoms but I just HATE it with a passion when the uke asks about it and the seme acts like it would kill him to become the bottom just once, I mean COME ON, you're doing all that to your lover and you think it's horrible to get it done to yourself?!

The 2nd and 3rd stories are a bit meh, there's just not enough depth and I found it hard to follow the confusing text.

All in all, this is nothing special. The are is mediocre, the stories are sort of boring.
It might be worth the read for the main story, but it's still not that great.

The uke of the main story was really cute. But I always fall for the uke. The included oneshots were also very good, as they both seemed to focus on the bittersweet, almost sad awakening of the uke's sexuality or new relationship. So did the main story, really. The onshot "Innocent Boy" may be a bit too much for those who prefer to avoid shota-esque manga.

It was ok but very dull and boring without charecter development or anything. Also, the dilemas weren't really problems and were resolved waaaay to easily. The generous rating goes to their honest sex scenes.

And can i just say the kid in the last chapter was theGOLD DIGGER i have ever seen... what a knob

what splendid art?

if i hadn't come from reading some nekota yonezou, i might have found the art here not too bad (though never "splendid"), but compared to nekota's work it is badly lacking in competence. tetsu is not attractive to me at all, there isn't exactly a wealth of expressions, the proportions are off more often than not when enomoto draws a full body, and profiles with a lot of neck showing also don't work -- heads are too small. the profusion of screentone flowers can't make up for that.

story-wise there isn't much meat here either. the first story is the only one worth reading IMO; there is a bit of a plot (more than many oneshots get), and the humour is nice. sakura really is cute in his earnestness to reach his goal, and while i would have preferred that he do, i expected he wouldn't, so that wasn't a big disappointment. i didn't find him particularly girly; he's just smaller and lighter than tetsu. in fact i thought he was rather boyish, especially when he got to beat somebody up.

the second story is shota. i like very little shota, and this falls squarely into a category i don't. i can't stand it when a small child is made out to be purposely seductive so the adult "can't" resist; that's too damn close to what real predators imagine in real life, and it destroys any fantasy aspect that makes a few shota stories ok. and since penetrative sex with children is a turn-off (*OUCH*), there's nothing here that works for me.

i've already forgotten the third story... oh, the inn manager. what was the point there? i am not sure whether i just didn't understand it, or whether there really was none.

overall, average at best, only worth it if your pile of good BL has dwindled to nothing.

As mentioned, the art isn't bad at all— most of the characters were very handsome. However, the plot in itself felt very... "whacky"; it felt like it was skipping around without any word or mention of said time skip. The relationship felt like it came out of thin air, save for half a page detailing their past. If you look at the humor content, minus plot, it causes a few chuckles here and there.

In short— nothing you haven't seen before, except for handsome art and some funny moments.

The art is just splendid the boys could not be any cutter, although sometimes even a bit girly but i did not mind and the bodies seem rock hard. This one i would have loved to see in person...hehe. The story is sweet and i liked oneshots as well it was really lovey dovey.

I really loved the uke. He's a boxer and although he usualy seems girly I think he manages to be quite manly too. I loved the fact that he really wants to be on top smile
