Sequel to the novel River's End.

Yorozu lives in a love hotel. When a film crew comes to the hotel to make an AV, he has a encounter with Togame, the director. On the first day, Yorozu is asked to be a substitute actor and has his pants pulled down; it was the worst first impression ever! To make matters worse, he's worried about the openly gay Togame getting close to his younger brother, Satoru. Yorozu takes action and tries to keep Togame away from his brother, but...

I found the first three chapters or so ultra confusing and I didn't see the bit described in the blurb, maybe cause I read too fast though, I don't know. Either way I kelt on reading and I liked it, the total air that the manga gives off and the art style is very nice. I like the mellow and unknown mutual love and seeing them realise that they were both in love in the end. It was a really nice read.

This little gem is sure to please. Despite its rather 'tame' bedroom scene, this maga has definitely made is way onto my top yaoi list. It displays beautiful art, a great plot and unexpectedly takes hold of your emotions. Overall a fantastic yaoi manga that I recomend for those looking for a great romance with a little angst and progression.
(I took 0.3 away, only because the bedroom scene was a little too tame for my tastes haha)

I enjoyed this read. None I'd the characters annoyed me that much, and I felt that they were relatable (in a way). I think it would have done well to expand over another volume which would have probably improved the manga even further. I felt like the protagonist's emotions weren't clear enough at the beginning, so I could only get into the manga after I reread the first chapter (or else all the events felt too sudden). Definitely recommend this one, though.

It starts off a bit slow but once the main plot has been established over the first couple of chapters, it gets really good. In my opinion, the main couple are quite unique and original in their personalities, as is the whole manga. The plot is really interesting and not cliche, though as mentioned at the beginning of the review, its a bit of a slow start which is okay I guess because the rest of the manga makes up for that. Was a really good read and more realistic than most yaoi manga, in my opinion smile.

Well, it's pretty cute and rather interesting, and I liked it and read it to the end, but it's not amazing ^.^. Actually the only great twist happens in the beginning of the story
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
where Yorozu tells Togame, that they *did* it
, and after that story mostly consists of lame twists. The manga is rather short, so it's still worth reading, I think ^_~.

This manga was amazing and beautiful! I loved reading it, just wished the conclusion was better though...or that it had 3 volumes instead of 2 due to the fact it left a lot of questions unanswered.

This manga has been saving me from my depressing days.. and it ended sad I can't say enough how beautiful this manga is. I want more. It's a light read anyway, nothing deep or psychological is going on. It is typical, right, many manga are typical, but the important thing is the way the story is told, everything has just combined and created a beautiful picture, dreamy, sweet and it also makes your heart aches.
If it suits your taste, please give it a try

unusual plot, I can only recall two manga with the same concept. Which of course is a big plus. The only thing I got a bit disappointed with was the ending, I would've liked at least 2 more chapters for them to sort things out -for real-, instead of rushing the whole thing.

aah I should also say I liked the art, really Ogura muku-ish.

It's really good because it is not only about sex and make out. It really has plot. The uke isn't a crybaby although he cried a lot. And the seme isn't the forceful one (like I rape u coz I love u seme) but very considerate adult. He thought about his love one, may be over thinking but still acceptable.

It's fresh read for yaoi lover. And I really recommend this wink

I don't usually read slice-of-life but this one gave a warm fuzzy feeling. It's really a pleasant manga to read. I usually go for smuttier BL but I think that the lack of it made the story better. It's because the uke was underaged and the seme wanted to wait for him. It shows that he respects and love him. This BL actually has a plot and it's not like the ones where the pairing lusts for each other and they have sex every chapter or all they think about is their SO's penis. It's a nice change to read less racier material and I think I might do so for a while. There's meaning behind their relationship and you can feel it is real. There is good character development. They are attracted to each other but they don't fall in love right off the bat. Even though there were moments that frustrated me because of the misunderstandings, I think they were necessary in the story. It tugged my heartstrings and it led me to anticipate more in the story. It was very well-written due to the good pacing and story elements that were included.

This manga was a collaboration between two people. Therefore, I think that it allowed for better story development. The art was also quite delightful. It suited the slice-of-life feel of the manga. In a way, it was charming yet simple and it worked so well for the story.

The overall feel of the story left me feeling satisfied yet wanting for more. The length of the manga was actually just right but it made me want to find something similar to read. Therefore, don't hesitate to read this. It has a good combination of story and art. One of the better BL I've read. To be honest, it's truer to the genre. It's Boys' LOVE not LUST. (Ok with the exception of yaoi but still, I'd prefer BL to feel more real.)
