First i was annoyed with sempai and his indecisiveness. It wasn't even because he was straight. Then I was annoyed with Ima because he started acting up when sempai was finally getting his act together. Gold star for him because I didn't think he could do it. No he gets a thumbs up, gold stars are for me. But in the end they make it to a somewhat happy ending.

Gripping. Dramatic. Bittersweet.

The manga is well written and well drawn and the plot is just absolutely wonderful. The characters grow and evolve as the manga progresses and you can't help but relate to their feelings and struggles because they feel so real and believable. It's also philosophical to a certain extent as the characters try to sort out their emotions and feelings and try to understand and find meaning in their life.

It's a story that pulls at your heartstrings and makes you feel.

This is directed to Banita. I wouldn't really says that it was the authors point to claim that what he feels is s different kind of love.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
For example, during the first few paged of the fourth chapter he said he fell in love with him. And stated that people might laugh at him for proclaiming his love but they don't believe in it. Since most of the time he did what society wanted him to do, deny, deny, deny. But he chose to be with Imagase in the end. And later in the chapter what redeem my ill thoughts of him was when Tamaki told him that he already belonged to his eex. Not even the author herself can deny that this id love.

i'm not saying the manga was bad, nothing like that, buy OMG IT WAS SO FUCKING DEPRESSIVE!

It's like they're never gonna be happy together. I doubt there's such drama in gay men lives. If there is, i re

The thing is, when everyone else cried, I smiled. I couldn't help smiling through the cruelty and the angst and everything hurtful. Kyouichi has turned into an incredibly rich character, and though nobody liked him from the start... He's turned into an amazing person.

It didn't happen in the first book, but now that they're a actual reversible couple, I can really say I appreciate the flippable dynamic.

There were a lot of confusing things, and I think it's a translation thing.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I still don't understand if Imagase really loves Kyouichi or not--I think he does--the point is that he loves Kyouichi too much, but the story keeps saying he doesn't, and then doesn't. And Kyouichi loves him back, but his love is unrequited? He and the author keeps saying that that kind of love is different, but I don't see how. Argh, so confusing. All I know is that they're both head over heels for each other, so why are you pretending it's more complicated than it actually is. As beautifully executed as it was, it hurts. I hate "someday" endings.

Still... Oh my god that was a masterpiece ugghh. Well, the ending wasn't as good as I would have liked, but it was epic nonetheless.

As they say, love can't be measured. But try telling that to an insecure gay man who's stuck with the realization that the man he loves can't love reciprocally. And then here's another (straight) man who doesn't know what he feels and what to do about it? Or even how to convince someone else that it's okay despite all things? The manga deals with these issues but can't say it completely resolves it but most people don't in real life, imo.

Sort of scary, sad, beautiful, and sweet. I could relate so strongly to both. Especially liked the last conversation between the main characters.

i just feel that their love is much more real than most other love i had read, and for that it is quite painful too. their indecisiveness, going back and forth, hurting each other and possessiveness make the reading a harrowing but satisfying one. i think every yaoi fan should read this.

Don't look at the page # just keep reading.

At times I got really sad if the story ended abruptly. Then found out there were more chapters. That made me happy.
The story and plot feels realistic. The character development, art, use of space, emotions were all too amazing and real to shrug off as JUST ANOTHER YAOI MANGA. There was comedy relief when things were getting too intense (which was a life-saver >A<). Mizushiro-san really knows how to tug at people's heart strings. 10/10 which I rarely ever give to any manga. I thoroughly enjoyed reading every moment of this.

This one made me feel kinda sad. It was so realistic! It was a good read though but I could really sympathise with both of the main characters. If you're looking for something more real and not fluffly lovey dovey then this is for you. Otherwise this might make you cry lol. ALSO I love how they switched positions in bed, seme became uke and uke became seme. So rare to find in yaoi!

I honestly don't know what I should feel. It just makes me think about how hard love is, and how complicated. After reading this, I definitely feel bad for Tamaki, well I feel bad for all three of them. It is so sad, they must hurt so much. I really find that gwkimmy's comment says so much of how I feel about this manga.

I feel very thankful for the scanlators because they did such a great job translating! I felt so drawn to the text, I could just imagine how much more if I'm able to read Japanese. Such a great job!

This is a great manga. Something you won't encounter just anywhere. Appreciate it and just keep on reading.
