Description
Fujishima Takara goes to high school and will start living in a dorm because he has lost all his family except for his father, who's always away for his work. Takara has to share a room with Hosaka Kiyomine. Living together isn't easy, and many rows ensue. Kiyomine is very introverted, while Takara is just the opposite. At first the two get on each other's nerves because of those differences. But things turn towards friendship and later on towards love.

Conflicted

I'm usually the biggest advocate for slow romance. In all honesty, I feel like if you want to love someone, you need to love someone outside of those romantic moments. Daily lives, life with them. On one hand, you're hard pressed to find a BL these days with this much development, of the two main characters, and of the people around them. You get sucked up into it, and before you know it, 25 volumes have gone by.There are some very surprisingly strong characterizations--several characters I couldn't help but feel a passionate dislike for, others I loved immensely--idk. If there was ever a manga that was very slice of life, it is this one.

The BL is...just tonally weird? It happened, but...it's subtle. At the same time, like--when did it start? It's less of the 'you grow with them to the point you don't even realize they've fallen in with each other' subtle and more of a 'at one point, Kiyomine really decided he liked Takara'. It's a little weird for me, but I do love their friendship. I don't really like how...Takara's girlish looks gets played out alot? It's a recurring thing that keeps coming back, and it keeps getting pretty annoying. At the same time, Kiyomine's selfishness being played against Takara's lack of self-awareness--seems so typecasted and flat. At the same time, some part of it all is rubbing me off the wrong way: Is it the way Takara's the school idol? The unnecessary plots that just basically involve Takara crossdressing as a girl is just really weird.

The beginning of the manga was strong with conflicts and dealing with Takara's complex and story and how he deals with people versus Kiyomine, but for the recent chapters, it's kind of...domestic-feeling. How it's demonstrated is not really my thing, but if that's your boat, I say go for it.

If you're not into fluff and slice of life, this manga isn't for you.

I really love this manga. Most of the characters are really relatable and I like them. THis manga is not just full of fluff, it's also full of slice of life. Yes, it's wordy but the word's are definetley worth the read and also the gorgeous art.

The first time I read this manga, I really liked it. It was cute and lovable. And the protagonist, despite his appearance, is actually pretty strong -- which is good, I'm not the type to go for type of protagonists who can't do anything by themselves. I finished the current chapters, then I go back and read it a second time. The third time, the flaws showed. I don't get why Abe-sensei must make everyone to like him, like, Takara meets a new character, the character dislike him, Takara shows how much of a caring person he is and the character grow fond of him. That's what happened most of the time, which is something that annoyed me. Other than that, it's a great manga and I highly recommend it nonetheless.

Honestly, I had a lot of fun reading, like I was smiling, laughing, giggling and squealing like an idiot! Didnt sleep just to finish it! Loved the entire thing including the ending! Sure this manga was closer to friendship than love but the fluffiness can't get any better so this deserves a handful of credits! If you're expecting graphic and REAL depth, you won't get it here. But if you're looking for some good fluff then OMFG WHAT ARE YOU DOING READING OUR COMMENTS??!!!!

when i first read this way way way back, i really hoped that abe miyuki made this yaoi-ish than shounen-ai. like just give one page showing that they somehow did something. i believe this is the 3rd shounen-ai i read in my entire life smile i like abe's works and her latest right now is also a hit <3 actually it is good that there is some H-stuff on the latest one smile nyaha

...who refrained from giving this series a 10 for reasons other than the fact that there is no explicit BL in it (not counting those who rated it '1' out of sheer spite <_<) Frankly, I couldn't care less whether the two protagonists ever "go beyond friendship" or not, since I'm far from being a yaoi fangirl and therefore prefer subtext to canon any day.

My main reason for not being too lavish with my praise is rather obvious, but seems to have passed entirely unnoticed -- if you ignore the fact that Takara is a boy, this is basically your standard school-life + slice-of-life shoujo romance manga. While there's nothing wrong with that, it does rob the plot of all originality and unpredictability. The characters have their realistic moments, but in general there isn't anything strikingly believable about them.

Kiyomine and Takara are rather boring people in general. And I dislike Kiyomine; he's one of those 'complicated' boys hailing from a 'perfect-but-not-really' kind of family, who women are irrationally obsessed with since he's "incredibly handsome", brilliant in his studies, and competent at whatever sport he tries. Well, at least Takara isn't physically weak, which frees him from the traditional 'uke' stereotype; though his androgyny (supposedly -- personally I don't consider his appearance to be feminine) and shortness land him back in that territory to some extent.
Their friends, family members and schoolmates are far more interesting individuals; so rather than finding it distracting, the frequent involvement of the supporting cast is what made the story enjoyable for me.

(The series's many pros have been mentioned repeatedly in all but two of the preceding comments, so I figured I should provide some balance and note the cons from an unbiased viewpoint)

Is Komatta Toki ni wa Hoshi ni Kike! a nice, simple story chock-full of softcore BL subtext and a cast of cute, innocent characters? Certainly. Is it the most brilliant shounen-ai manga ever written? I don't think so.

I suggest you read "Demian Syndrome" in the meanwhile. It is similar in exciting ways, yet different in exciting ways. http://manga.animea.net/demian-syndrome.html I think both are insanely good. wink Both have potential future updates too!

wow I was afraid by the comments that maybe I would get bored of this manga so I put off reading it for so long....but I dont find it boring at all! The pace at which their personalities are revealed, their relationship develops, and the story builds is absolutely perfect. At first it was a little bit slow, but it just kept getting better and better; I feel like the story gets quite intense! This has definitely made it into my top 5! X3


PS I just read it a second time lol I'm so in love with this I can't get enough
