I love it i love it, i love the mangaka's works, is no secret that the art is superb, just beautifullll!
And everytime is very sweet and kind, the semes are very nice and i love it . The plot wasn't original but it has something that it just made me wait for the releases like crazy. What i would have wanted to see more is with no doubt: Sex. But overall it was lovely ^_^

I'm loving this so far! The plot itself is great with a wonderful pace and very endearing characters. If you're looking for a quick fix of fluff then this isn't quite it, because so far (up to chapter 15) there's never been a completely steady moment for this couple. But having said that it won't make you want to rip your hair out and scream at them to hurry up, instead you'll just cross your fingers and hope for the best.
The love they have for each other is very deep and sweet; for one of them it's been a very long one-sided love, and for the other it was a slow realization. They're both so loyal and dedicated to each other <3 Although neither of them are really aware of how the other feels which causes misunderstandings and such. While it would be easier if they just honestly spoke to each other about all their worries, I can understand why Yuusuke is hesitant. He wants to do what's best for Atsushi no matter what, and this creates a lot of inner conflict for him. Plus it doesn't help that Itou is always meddling >.<
Normally I get tired of stories that have this many problems but for some reason I just can't put this one down. The main characters are so loveable, and I've come to really like Mike as well - his thought about becoming Atsushi's onii-san was great ^^
Also I just love the intimate scenes. It isn't at all rushed or forced like in most yaoi, it builds up gradually from kissing then eventually up to sex quite a few chapters later. -- Which isn't too good if you're looking for lots of smut, but it's still hot as it shows how desperate they are for each other even if they don't go all the way.
All in all, I love this manga ^^ It's held my interest from the start and I can't wait for the next installment~

EDIT: I've now finished this manga and I agree with what some others have said, the final chapter was a bit of a letdown. While it was a happy end, it just wasn't enough... I had been expecting a bit more but hey. So because of the slightly disappointing end i'm going to change my rating from a 10 down to a 9. It's still a wonderful manga and i'd still recommend it though ^_^

Great, love the art, love the story, love the characters.
It's always nice seeing a work that is not just oneshots and has the right kind of pace, where
the characters actually do other stuff before it gets to the sex.

The only negative thing I can say is the scanlation that starts at chapter 7 in volume two... after the first volume had a great translation with a perfect flow, the translation in volume two is just horrible... it makes little sense and kills the whole story. But this is certainly not the mangaka's fault so I'm still going to give it the full points.

Agh, I finally found this manga! It took me years to find it because I forgot the title and only read the first chapter. YES! I just finished reading the latest chapter. I'm so happy. I hope it'll be updated as soon as possible. I can't get enough with the characters.

I went blind reading this. The story is very good and well developed if it isn't all too original. Emotions are strong and visible, with enough depth for it not to feel boring and useless like some yaoi I come accross these days. So yes all that is very good on it's own to make a nice and enjoyable read... but OMFG the art is drop-dead gorgeous O_O. It's even better than the other works of this mangaka that I read. It's woow, up there with the very best.

I think I'd even read it if the story was crap, just to see the art. But thank god all the rest is good too, which makes it a great read. Absolutely recomended!!

By the way, I'm a sucker for super dedicated lovers, so if you are too, you'll enjoy it. ^^

I don't read brother/brother stories, but since this was step-brothers I gave it a shot.

The pacing was really great - I never got bored, and I never felt like they were rehashing everything with each chapter. It moved at a nice speed.

I also really like all the characters. There are two side characters that actually interest me as much or more than the main couple.

It's a bit of an unbelievable story (who lets their step-sibling kiss them and believes it's only as a favorconfused), but it's fun all the same. For a genre that thrives on unbelievable stories, this one is enjoyable.

If they ever finish translating it, I'll definitely read it.

Oh, and the translation is really good, too. Barely any awkward sentences, and the grammar is good!

This is one of my favorite manga e-v-e-r. It's hard to pinpoint why, but the feelings are conveyed perfectly and the artwork is absolutely beautiful. It is a little angsty, but I love that too. I recommend this absolutely =)

I can't get enough reading this even only chap 1 was released by Nakama and DP. I read it many times. The story started nicely and sparks interesting premise between step brothers. The art is no doubt gorgeous and emotions are conveyed perfectly.
