From September Scanlations:

1-3, 6-21) Rutta to Kodama
Ruizaki Takao has a new roommate: transfer student Miyagi Kodama. Ruizaki's a rough guy who gets into fights all the time, but he's gentler around Kodama (who gives him the nickname 'Rutta'), and the two eventually become close friends—until one day, out of the blue, Rutta confesses that he's in love with Kodama…and thus begins their relationship. A beautiful, humorous school-life BL manga detailing the pair's blossoming relationship, with its ups and downs and everything in between.

4-5) Torao and Tatsumi
The 'Western Tiger' Torao and the 'Western Dragon' Tatsumi are not only two of the strongest guys in the city they're also childhood friends.

This one of the best, really, at first you're like: This is cute, but then you realize it's kinda deep! and they really love each other. I love it! (and I don't go around giving 10 ratings around!)

I'm in love with the sidestory in this one (chapter 4-5). My rating would've been at least an 8 or 9 if it was the sidestory alone. The uke was tough, the seme was cool, and both of them cared about each other and showed it. The uke's kiddie tag-a-long friends were awesome and definitely a highlight next to the relationship. There should've been more of this story and cut down on the main story.

The main story was a chore to read. Like some other comments said, the main couple got together quickly and the rest was just fluff. I don't mind fluff. I LOVE fluff. But on the condition that I actually care about the couple. The main couple's romance developed too fast in the beginning and not convincingly either (or with loads of chemistry) so I didn't really care about them therefore with the rest of the story left to read and it already oozing sugary sweetness that didn't connect to me, I thought "meh". Truthfully, I didn't finish this.

Cute story with cute characters. Its little individual streak is its pure earnestness of its characters, and how it chooses to deal with jealousy, and the fallings of relationships throughout the kinds of veins in the later chapters. Not too big of a drama fest, but it does help it stand out from being just an obscure just-to-enjoy-plain-manga type.

the characters get together really quickly and arbitrarily, it seems, and then the rest of the story is just their fluffy couple time and their high school antics.

its cute i guess, but i wanted more substance and chemistry to their relationship than just "oh you're friendly to me, i like you." meh. whatever.

Okay, so maybe there weren't a lot of comedic moments or interesting plot twists, but I just love this manga. We get to see their relationship grow (with lots of sweet moments) and see how they discover more about each other.

AND the "seme" isn't some alpha-hole, the "uke" isn't an annoying crybaby or scaredy cat, and there's a refreshing lack angst... thank god (or I guess Fujitani-sama in this case).

...although, now that I think about it, I could've totally done without the misunderstandings/lack of communication in the 3rd volume, that was kinda sucky. A rating of 8 then.

Sweet, sexy, and fluffy with lovable characters that grow. I love how the mangaka let us watch Kodama and Rutta grow throughout the years, and left us with a scene of their lives after high school. Kodama and Rutta are such likable characters- they just both have an honest charm to them. Definitely recommended. Although it's nothing extraordinary or innovative, it still had that little something that made reading it completely worthwhile.

I've read a lot of school romance yaoi. And I mean A LOT. This is just a typical yaoi manga to me. BUT I do appreciate the long chapters a lot. There isn't much depth but the fluffiness is enough tomake this manga a satisfying read. It's a good manga for Yaoi-starters.

In a nutshell,
a) Good, clean art
b) Cliche plot
c) Packed full of fluffiness

Good for starters though a bit dull for those long-term fujoshis....

I love to read sweet and fluffy manga like this! It's so gentle that it makes you heart go all fuzzy when you read this! The characters are pretty well done, no despicable characters, no irritating characters, they're all pretty interesting! The plot however is something that you might find in other yaoi manga but there's something in this manga that makes the plot shines better.

Although it's a little cliché but it's good. Give this a try if you haven't!

to be honest, it's not what i'd consider one of the "greats" ...but if you want a sweet story to warm you on a rainy day, this is JUST THE THING.

i for one love it and find it supremely adorable. the plot is on the thin side, but the characters' likability keeps it fresh. the art is very cute, and most of all, there's a gentle atmosphere around the whole story that i really enjoyed.

PS: i'd recommend youko fujitani's "aishiteru/i love you" if you're looking for something of similar quality and feel.
