Arikawa Youichi's life at university is going just fine. He isn't having any trouble with his classes, he has plenty of friends, and even a cute girlfriend named Kanami. Then the day comes where he meets Misaki. Misaki Shouta is a reserved, stand offish fellow but for some reason, Youichi can't seem to get him out of his mind. In fact, he can't seem to stay away. When he lands a job working in the lab with Misaki, it seems more than just the flowers are about to bloom. But will they recognise their emotions for what they are, and have the courage to accept it?

When I started reading this I didn't know what to expect, so I was quite happy with what followed. The story is pretty slow, but the beautiful art and quite moments really make up for that. It took some time to get through but now I can't wait for the next chapter!

Its believable in my opinion. I mean most Yaoi these days are uke gets raped, uke falls for seme for whatever f**king unlogical reason! *sigh*
But this manga is refreshing and sweet~ The seme is such a sweetheart while the uke is just so timid and naive but still shows a serious composure. I love the idea of flowers and plants as the theme! It's so fitting!

An okay manga, not very simple and yet not very dark either. We can already guessed that how the story would be. I can even guess Misaki's past just from some flashback. It's obvious but it's very enjoyable so I can turn a blind eye to the obviousness.

I really like Arikawa's personality. I think all semes should be just like him.

she writes such great stories! I love that the seme is just as crazy about the uke as the uke is crazy about him (if not more so)! And the sexy scenes were just amazing. I haven't seen that drawn with so much feeling and depth in a while (and I read a LOT of yaoi). I'd definitely recommend. Now I want to go re-read Seven Days (again). Such beautiful art. So cute!

Good manga but not the best.

It's a good solid manga, one of those that neither has a big plot nor much drama or anything else... it's just a very simple love story.
I like the art and the characters and it was an enjoyable read but I wouldn't count this as the best manga I've ever read or anything either... however I do see the appeal Takarai Rihito has for Yaoi beginners. This is one of the better works to read if you are just starting with Yaoi and want something easy to follow and will leave you with a positive feeling.
Personally for me it was lacking something though and I'm looking for more in manga, a story that can truly move me, characters that I can go crazy over or just really well conveyed emotions.
This manga has a little bit of everything but doesn't convince me as a whole.

If you are looking for something sweet and light, without much difficult themes then give it a read.
It's not something to stay in your head forever though.

The art style reminded me about "Seven Days", and of course it turned out to be drawn by the same mangaka ^_^. But "Hana no Mizo Shiru" is a lot better (for there is a gap in two years between them, and mangaka improved since then). I was actually going to give it 8, but the story appeared to be rather simple and predictable. Still nice though. Oh, and I appreciate all the efforts of scanlator groups, mostly because of their cute messages throughout the manga ^-^.

The storyline may be a bit predictable to some people, but in all honesty that didn't affect me at all. I loved both of the male characters, and found the manga as a whole so sweet and gorgeous. I may be a bit biased since the art is so well drawn, but I really loved everything about this manga ^^

One of the best manga I've ever read ! I love the art, I think it improved since Seven Days and the story is beautiful. I lent the first volume to my friends and they ended up wanting more~!

I love seven days but this is almost as good.I loved seven days so much that when it came out in English I bought the books and I keep them specially out of anyone's reach.this mambas process is slow and it bets boring sometimes when you are waiting for the Amex but it's a good read.

Higher expectations

I realise that the mangaka for this only did the illustrations for Seven Days, but I still had higher expectations because its my belief that people with who take a novel and make it into manga form will generally add a little bit of their style into it (other than just the art).

If I wasn't comparing this to Seven Days, then the manga would be above average. But some of the plotline has been rehashed quite abit in this genre so it isn't unique enough to make it stand out and above the rest.

The sincerity of the main male character was very appealing. I like how he approached the uke. The downfall had to be they had too many manga tropes.
