Description
Painful, heartbreaking memories suddenly surface for Haru when he agrees to fill in as teacher for the high school archery club. In his youth, Haru was a brilliant archer who competed for the national championship. But uncontrollable urges for a male rival forced him to give up on his archery dream and run away from his true feelings. Now that he's back in the bow-and-arrow game, Haru becomes drawn to the brother of his long-lost love--and he must find out if desire has taken on a new, seductive aim...

So many feels!

Omigod this manga I don't even <3 <3 <3 Great art, great plot, so many feels. And I love how it's not just from one point of view and how the perspectives overlap.
I don't understand why people are reading the sequel BEFORE the original - read everything in order to understand what sort of development the author was going for~

Holy cow! Emotion!   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

Wow this is one of those mangas where I was so very much drawn in from page one, at the edge of my seat...!
There's so much emotion in this story, the characters are full of life... I love how the art is complimenting this so well! I read most of Takanaga sensei's works and I like almost all of them but THIS one just has to be my favorite manga (we'll see how good the sequels are)
My mind is blown by this! It's a very moving story, even if it's nothing totally new or detailed or big.
It's a common story of being in love with someone you thought didn't like you back but leaving it all behind you, only to have old and new feelings appear again.
Tsukasa has made it into my top list of favorite characters right within the first few pages already and every single reaction he had in this manga just made me love him more and more.
He's a perfect character! He's melancholic, ambitious, straight forward, impulsive and just very emotional *without* becoming a typical rage-rape seme! Plus he's damn hot!
All of the 3 main characters are SO lovable! I find it really rare to be liking them all, the main pair plus the rival... it's just perfect and I think you'll also find yourself liking all of them!
None of the things these characters do will make you go "wtf?!" or "oh I wish he hadn't!" no, all the actions are so fitting and they're very human and reasonable.
These characters have faults, they make mistakes and misunderstand things.
But what bothers me with a ton of yaoi out there is that the characters are often the same: they are ignorant, oblivious to what happens, they are unreachable, cold, semes often show no emotion whatsoever and ukes only cry.
And the characters here are not like that. It's all about showing feelings, and I love that so much about this manga!

I know I'm not stopping to praise this manga but I'm seriously overwhelmed by how good it is, and reading Tyrant who Falls in Love I already thought her mangas were really good but this is even a step higher for me.

If you're into boys love manga that will give you all these feelings, feeling sad for characters, putting emotion into what you hope will happen to them, if you find yourself loving characters as if they could be real people, suffering with them... you'll love this manga!

Read this BEFORE the sequel. It is the PREquel afterall!

It seems like a lot of reviewers prefer the sequel and are not very fond of Tsukasa after reading about Reiichirou. The thing is, the mangaka wrote the sequel after the prequel, you know. So what if Takanaga sensei had decided to portrayed Reiichirou as an unlikable character in the sequel? Would Tsukasa not be as dislikable then? Besides, as we read this prequel, we are following the plot through Tsukasa's perception. There are things that Tsukasa and Haru do not know about Reiichirous's feelings, but with what they are able to see and know, their actions are not absolutely unacceptable. Tsukasa was selfish to some extent. But he was selfish because he was in love. Who will play play fair and square in love game anyway? Furthermore, if Haru and Tsukasa had known about Reii's feelings as we, as readers, know after reading the sequel, then they may not act as they do in here.
Just my two cents, but this also happen in life unfortunately. We don't know everything. And it is quite upseting when other people judge your action assuming that you know everything when actually you do not and cannot.

Deep Plot, Great Art

I read this one a while ago and I must say it left an impression. I can still feel Tsukasas hopes and expectations, earnest admiration and fears towards Haru. This is not your typical Student-Teacher-Relationship Manga, since it doesn't focus on everyday High-School matters but on the character related issues and the past. Unsurprisingly, being drawn by Takanaga Hinako, the art is perfect.

if you're looking for a little drama, a bit of romance with deep feelings, and GENTLE yaoi than this is the manga for you.
There's not much drama but just enough to create strong feelings between haru and tsukasa. Haru and Tsukasa's relationship is really gentle excepts for some parts where the Tsukasa loses his temper and becomes somewhat childish; but that's whats cute about him. ^^ i really like Haru for he's gentle, cute, and understanding..... it was really cute how his feelings changed from Reiichirou to Tsukasa!!!

the older brother, Reiichirou ---> he's really good looking. a lot of other comments states that he was made into the bad guy in this manga. for me it was the opposite, he was Haru's crush before Tsukasa and his best friend. the reason why Reiichirou and Haru didn't end up together even when they felt the same way for each other was because Reiichirou wasn't usually interested in other people and that he only made his move after seeing Haru and Tsukasa together. i think that it was ok for Haru to leave him cause they both didn't know what to do with their feelings four year back..... after finishing the manga i came to realize the haru was somewhat looking for someone to love and to help him erase reiichirou. so when tsukasa finally took action and confessed, of course haru will fall in love with him... ^^ PEACE

plus i haven't read the sequel yet, cause i enjoy to read them in order ^^..... i'm looking forward to it

After read this I feel like want to slap Tsukasa because of his egoistic acts and always make Reichirou like a bad guy (especially after what happened in ch 03) Poor Reichirou! sad Really, Tsukasa and Haru didn't have interesting characteristics at all. But at least I can read some stories about what happened to Reichirou...

Read the sequel instead!

The artwork is of course amazing. However, I can't help but give a low rating to this manga coz I didn't like Haru or Tsukasa. First off, I thought it was ridiculous the way they acted like Reichirou was the bad guy. Umm, because someone his brother loved was in love with him instead? Coz he didn't magically read Haru's mind and find out his feelings (since Haru never told him)? Riiiiight. Makes sense. And now, having read the sequel and knowing Reichirou's character better, I'm even less inclined to recommend this manga to anyone. 2 stars, unless you're into annoying ukes and semes.

Fall in Love and Drown in Love: Perspectives Overlap   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0
by MightyMaeve

The underlying theme is emphasized, or illustrated, through the use of archery. (Stunning illustrations of the men in their hakamas!) Haru's thought was: "Archery mirrors one's heart." Both stories speak to the philosophy of love in practical application. How do you know if you are in love? What is love? What does it mean to be in love and how will this reflect in your treatment of the one you love? Should you be selfless and perhaps in pain? Or should you be selfish and manipulative and happy? Can you deal with any guilt induced by this?

Although they are separate mangas, they are uniquely interwoven. The chronological order is overlapping, instead of the usually forward or backward momentum that other mangaka's use to interweave a 'universe' of characters. I liked it; it helped to expand and give depth to intense moments and develop a strong connection to the characters and their lives by seeing two perspectives simultaneously.

You Will Fall in Love has the edge with more twists, surprises and depth with Haru and Tsukasa's emotional evolution and development. You Will Drown in Love is a close step behind though, with a consistent, believable and insightful personality study of Reiichirou.

Her stories always have a 'tender' or 'sweet' element alongside the angst. A very lovely and memorable balance of emotion presented in clever wordings of thought and emotional illustration of moments. Her art is pretty, balanced and lushly palpable (the lips!) She never pushes into 'explicit' with the intimate scenes, but her kiss scenes make up for that lack in my mind!

I'm spoiled for this one after reading Rin. Truth is, Rin had a similar storyline, and the second volume even had a love triangle, but the story was 10x better. (So was the love triangle, since *all* of the characters were written to be 3 dimensional.) I hate wimpy ukes, and couldn't see what Haru saw in the possessive, childish Tsukasa. And Reiichirou was completely 2-dimensional, written only as a bad guy for Tsukasa to play off of. Perhaps the sequel with him fleshes out his character more, but I can only go on what's contained in this book. Oh, and the art in this one, too, is typical yaoi art, with a stereotypically feminine uke. If you want a story that deals beautifully, not just with archery and love, but life in general, Rin is so much better. The art in Rin is also more simple, but fits with the reflective, almost meditative quality of the story.
