(Probably spoilers ahead) Akira is the most selfish guy I"ve ever read about in a manga. Souta is so cute, devoted, and in love with him and Akira returns this love by sleeping with girls behind his back like it's normal and forcing him to quit his studies and become a manager for his new whim of wanting to be an actor. He only ever even sleeps with Souta when he wants to or when he's not with some other girl and he doesn't even let Souta say no. This is the stupidest thing I've ever read! I know it's supposed to be a comedy, but it's really not written in good taste. I can't get behind someone being so selfish and expecting everyone to cater to every one of his whims and desires.

Especially the end! They'd been dating for SO LONG and it ends about how Akira "had hardcore sex with a girl" when he was away from Souta for 2 months. What even?! How can that be funny?

Don't waste your time.

This is the worst yaoi I've ever read and I mean it. Not only the yaoi genre, it's the worst of the worst manga I've ever read.
One guy is totally serious and so devoted while the other guy cheats on him like it's a natural thing. He doesn't even think that it's wrong. He spouts nonsense like " Sex with a girl and a guy is different You're the only guy I will have sex with!" and 'I can't help going out with girls because I'm still young, it's something I want to do'. And he continues to have sex with girls behind the other guy's back like it's totally normal and that ends the story.
I mean what the heck was that. The moral and common sense of this story are to be questioned. It left such a bad taste in my mouth. I wish I had never picked it up.

I couldn't stop laughing. Wow, this seriously cracked me up. Akira is like literally the worst person ever in existence. Good thing that I didn't take this too seriously. Although if I was Kouta I would most definitely be in prison right now for homicide.

No, no, no...Takanaga Hinako, what happened? That was strange. I'm sorry. I really love Takanaga-Sensei and I'm a huge fan of her manga but this one was just so...weird? Wrong?...I don't know...

Usually, her mangas make me happy because they're really cute and stuff, but this one didn't do that for me...
Maybe it was the characters...? I didn't really like Akira or Kouta's personality and even though that's just my opinion, they felt really weird. Akira was a rude jerk and Kouta was just dense and naive.

There was some hidden potential, though. I just think the manga couldn't find it.
(Also, I find it funny that almost everyone dislikes this manga.)

I cant even describe how pointless this yaoi is. Nothing changes. The uke is still an douchebag and big cheaters, the only thing changes is the seme somehow immune to cheating now (?). The title is the opposite of the story, one guy who ignored his education got famous easily and one guy with good head gave it away to serve a jerk. I really questions the moral of this manga. This is something people should NEVER do. This is totally unhealthy and probably full of STDs.

Well, I understand it a comedy manga thus not to be taken seriously.
Still, I have to say that I didn't like it that much and the way Akira acts just rubs me the wrong way.
It's a bit too morbid to be funny, especially since the main character is obviously hurt and doesn't take it all like a big joke either...
I liked Kouta as a character (at least at the start of the manga), he was adorable but Akira was just one big FAIL.
As it is, I'd say it doesn't work as a comedy, it doesn't bring across the pure comedic view on serious topics like infidelity, lying and simple bad characters.
I'm not saying that comedy cannot handle big topics like that, but it has to *feel* funny when you read it, like you just cannot take it seriously and it makes you laugh with the way character react.
That's totally fine, but here, you just feel really bad for Kouta and you start hating Akira for being a jerk constantly.

Too bad, because it was interesting seeing one of Takanaga Hinako's earlier works but well, the story wasn't mine so I skipped through it pretty much.

Only points I'm giving are for the art.

I'd only recommend this to die-hard Takanaga fans or people who don't mind the main character constantly being hurt and abused in pretty tasteless ways, and the general attitude that "because it's a comedy, it's okay".

If you are looking to read a manga that has a couple that really loves and stays true to one another, do not read this. Even by the end, the uke character was still a complete f***head and cheater. I feel intensely dissatisfied and annoyed after finishing this...

This story just makes me angry smile Akira is an ass and the story ends in a quite disappointing way with Kouta being treated like an idiot. *Stabs Akira* I can't take cheating characters so I wish there was a negative number for rating this biggrin If Akira had ANY redeeming qualities it would have at least been a bit better, but he doesn't have any. He will probably catch some STD's in the future and I hope Kouta doesn't get it smile

I'm a Takanaga Hinako fan, and this is the first one of hers that seriously disappointed me. The artwork is very nice, of course, which is the only thing that prevented me from giving this the lowest grade.

Akira has no redeeming qualities at all. At the start of the story, he's manipulative, cold, irresponsible, and a cheater. Unfortunately, the story ends with him still being manipulative, cold, irresponsible, and a cheater.

I liked Kouta in the beginning. He was a bit shrewish, while still easily manipulated by Akira, but he was nice overall. By the end of the book I've lost all sympathy for him because he's become such a doormat --
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
even throwing out his own education out the window just for a chance to be akira's manager

I'm glad this wasn't the first book by Takanaga Hinako I've read, or I would have placed her in my Do Not Read list.

/off to re-read Little Butterfly to wash the bad taste this book left in my mouth.
