Nice Art, Nice Story. Don't worry about the Cats   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

This was a nice little read. Don't worry about the cats though! This manga doesn't revolve around animals, they're just part of the plot. I hesitated before reading this one, because I really hate animal characteristics in BL. But thank goodness everything was fine and the taming of the shrew went on successfully. Since it wasn't your typical chliched BL manga, I didn't get bored at all while reading it, so I can definitely recommend this one.

I was expecting more (not really) based on the comments and the rating... First of all this is not reeally yaoi, second the art isn't my cup of tea though is not terrible. The story is simple, there are cute and funny moments but really nothing great, it's whatever.

So, so cute. I loved all the characters. Aoi had such a difficult time admitting his true feelings, and I thought it was kind of cool how the mangaka showed that not only with Azuma, but with the animals, too. His first reaction to the cats was adorable. And Azuma's character was so difficult to read throughout the manga, it was terribly amusing to see that confident grin at the end. He knew what he was doing haha. Tominaga's so cute, though, I hope his story with the president gets scanlated. And I kind of wish Akiba-sensei would do another story where they finally take things to the next level... >w< Anyways, this was a really cute read that I would definitely recommend.

Very Cute

A nice, light yaoi read and a cute story that gives you the giggles. I've yet to read a manga with a pairing quite like this one. The couple is very cute together and protagonist overcoming his pride and aversion to dating men is the main plot. The love scene is only 5 pages and doesn't go into too much detail. A very cute read that has me looking for more by this mangaka.

I barely finished this. Although the art isn't bad, just average, the whole thing were dull and kinda boring. It's just an average high school yaoi. The story is way too long for that kind of plot, especially the inner dialogues, they were thinking and thinking all over again about small meaningless matters and it annoyed me a lot. On top of that the story is completely predictable, a total cliché. I'm surprised by high ratings, it don't deserve it at all. There's really nothing special about it.
I won't recommend it. Sorry.

i always love violent uke who try hard to keep his masculinity. this one is a perfect violent/ delinquent uke lovers out there! though the story is average, and the art just ok, the dynamic of violent cute uke with poker faced seme is not to be missed.

This is example of yaoi with pretty uke... done right. Azuma's personality is unique for a seme. Sex scene was way too rushed and even side characters agree with that.

Oh, and here are kittens, but they aren't drawn beautifully. Mangaka makes prettier people than animals. Cat-like characteristic of Aoi is cute by the way.

I had fun reading this! It was a nice story with cute characters and a rare type of Seme taming the Uke. Like most violent ukes, the semes are usually the type to almost always use sex or seductivity to restrain the uke but this was different in a very cute way~

In a nutshell,
a) love the artwork with all its pretty pages moments~~ (like toboso yana)
b) cute characters with a normal plot
c) recommended for any who needs'em

Seriously, it's good. But to some, it's just meh. So, dont actually take my comment to heart cuz you may or may not like it~

It's my ideal yaoi.Quiet semes, violent ukes, my rating is nothing below a ten for this. Though I'm not too keen on boys being so beautiful that they are like females, that sort of thing doesn't rock my boat. At least not for this type of manga; maybe within a brothel, yes? An all boys school, mehhh.

Most of what I've read from this author is good. Nothing new plot-wise, but the characters are fun and not flat (you can easily distinguish between their personalities), the art is clean and great to look at, and the plot never gets too unbelievable.

The whole thing where Azuma treats Aoi a little like a cat is simultaneously weird and kind of sweet (especially because he wasn't forcing anything on him like those other jerks tried to do).

Aoi was violent without becoming too crazed, his friend and his friend's boyfriend were cute, and Azuma was sweet. Everyone was kind of weird, but that wasn't unexpected.

Light and sweet overall. It's a lot of fun to read.
