1) Scent Filled Days
"Stay away from me, you stink." Hearing these words from high-schooler Kazunari sends auto mechanic Ryosuke into a confused funk. As the son of the garage owner, Kazunari should be used to the smells of oil and sweat, right? But he seems determined to avoid Ryosuke, who's equally determined to find out why!

2-4) Body Talk Paradox
Tattoo artist Shidou is very negative and unsociable. He can't call people close to him friends and he has no lovers. Even when he feels lonely, he only goes for one-night stands. But then Takita, whom Shidou had slept with previously, approaches him without any hesitation! Takita comes to visit him every day at work, and Shidou can't refuse him because he owns the building. Takita's expressions of love for Shidou are escalating day by day!

5) Love Sensitive
Tattoo artists and coworkers Sasami and Kaji are more like mother and child, with the wild looking Kaji taking care of the gloomy Sasami. Kaji's instincts are far from motherly, and he's grown to care for Sasami, whose sensitivity to the cold temperatures are making him more lethargic than usual. Can Kaji think of ways to keep him warmed up?

6) Mad Synapse
Akimoto just wants to keep everything in his work "moderate" but his co-worker, Suzuki, keep giving him trouble with his airheadedness. And too bad for Suzuki, but Akimoto isn't as nice as he might seem on the outside.


*NOTE: The manga was re-released under the new name Kuchibiru wa Uso (w)o Tsuku.

First impression: Holy crap the art is hawt XD Really, this art style is perfect (in my tastes), its beautiful, the men look like men and the uke in this... i want him x3 *little smile*

Anyway, the first story is not memorable to me at all, but the second story i liked alot. The first story has its cute moments and its a little funny, but the ending left alot to be desired xD. As for the second story - the uke in it is very cute, despite looking manly most of the time - he has such a complex and it really comes across as making him seem adorable o.o and the seme is sort of cute in himself too, right at first i was thinking he sort of reminds me of yakuza, but when we see the real him towards the end i simply lol'ed, I like him now xD

I liked this, its very light in the way of yaoi but its cute and i'll probably remember it. I also love the uke's tattoo's... im not a huge tattoo fan or anything but i do love that style of abstract art - i even have a t-shirt with a very similar design oddly enough.

Except for Kazunari-kun, I like him and Kaji, he's ok. I hate Suzuki the most, he's so annoying and useless, I'd like him more if he was an uke.

I like the first couple/story most and the third couple comes second, I wish it was longer, and that they had gone all the way. The other sex scenes were unsatisfactory(I'd rather not have seen it).

I was disappointed that Shuji was also an uke, I hoped that at one of the friends would be a seme. He appeared a lot in the other stories, but I wanted to see more of Ryusuke(I guess he's my type(?)).

I like this one. Each of the characters were unique (both in appearance and in personality) which is quite cool considering that most mangaka tend to reuse certain attributes like they were going out of style. The art itself is very clean and clear, and as far from shoujo-like as possible (which is a nice change for a yaoi work). I gotta admit that the first story kinda threw me, since I had no clue what that had to do with the main title work, like the others were - at least until I saw Akihito's story.

The first story in this volume was pretty bad. It didn't have me going in to this with a very good impression. The subsequent stories were all better, though still rather average. I think the story between sasame and kaji would have been my favorite, but the guy never once took off his glasses(which you can not see his eyes through) and for some reason that really irked me. Eyes are important! Anyway, not terrible for shorts/oneshots, but there's no way I will remember any of it.
