From Nakama:

When Takagi Akira, an owner of an apartment, was in town, he ran into a scene where a man, Oodoi, saved an old man from a gang. Akira fell for Oodoi’s manly courage and took him in his apartment. Oodoi found Akira’s apartment comfy and spent time there. Akira thought Oodoi's manly act was now part of the past...

First of all, I love Natsume Isaku to death. Her art style is incredible and her stories are always fun!
I dunno why, but she's one of the few artists where I could stare at the cover art all day squealing "ur such a cutie!!" (looking at the uke) over and over again.
This manga isn't fully translated yet but so far, again, it's so promising!

Typically, it starts you off right in the middle of the story, with funny happenings that make you laugh out loud! It's the story of the nice, normal guy Akira who one day witnesses a stranger help someone in trouble on the streets. Impressed with that selflessness, he takes the guy home after he breaks down, but is in for a surprise when that man, Oodoi, turns out to be a lazy bum who does nothing but sleep all day.
Natsume Isaku just gets that perfect mixture of comedy, seriousness, drama and romance, with a happy ending!

Recommended to absolutely everybody! (As long as you are not looking for a long series or very deep story)

I adored all the characters, and I thought the one main guy was very original (and his love of animals who hate him was funny) for this kind of manga. There was a girl character who had a personality, too, which is awesome. I just had a lot of fun with the whole thing. And the extras were cute, too.

This could be considered one of the best examples of how a fun, sweet and just plain adorable story should be like. It has the right amount of depth for how long it was written, right amount of humor and just right amount of romance. It has great art and plot that makes you wanna keep reading. Definitely a 4 star in my book.
