Minami fell in love with the beautiful but aloof dentist Kitagami, but was summarily rejected -- Kitagami just doesnít date. An undeterred Minami continues his advances, determined to get Kitagami to take his feelings seriously. But whilst Kitagami continuously fights off Minamiís advances, his meddling twin sister Hana and the artful lawyer Itoda seem to be working on Minamiís side!

To Sow A Seed is a heart-warming and funny story about love and pain. The key to Kitagamiís cold, aloof heart lies in understanding his painful past, but will Minami realise the truth about love and relationships in time to salvage his efforts at building a relationship with Kitagami?

I thought it was yaoi :(   
Rating: 6.0 / 10.0

Lets start by saying that this is NOT yaoi. This is shounen-ai. eManga (where I bought this) and MyAnimeList both tag this as yaoi. If only I had come to Baka-Updates first *sigh*

Anyway, besides that, the story wasn't too bad. What starts out as a rom-com steers to some serious drama and emotions. We have an aloof beautiful dentist who is being stalked by a white-collar worker, Minami. Minami tries everything to date Kitagami, the dentist, and fails each and every time.

At one point I was frustrated with why Minami wanted Kitagami in the first place. Sure, he is beautiful but his attitude and mannerisms drove me crazy and I heard myself saying "just give up, he NOT worth it!"; beauty isn't everything. After a while Kitagami's wall of defense starts to crumble and Minami gets a taste of the deep emotional damage that Kitagami is hiding under his beautiful facade.

The plot had some interesting moments, and I feel that this could have easily had another volume to follow the two as they worked out their problems; it was too short. However, as I said before: this was not a yaoi and I didn't know what I was getting as I came into this. I was expecting them to 'get together' and was disappointed in the end, lowing my overall score. I felt that all that emotional mumble-jumble was all for nothing. tsk.

Positives: great art. Beautiful characters. Nice feels. Good dialogue.
Negatives: shounen-ai (not yaoi). Annoying characters. Needs a sequel; felt inconclusive. Pointless.

Story = 6 | Art = 8 | Character = 5 | Enjoyment = 6 | Overall = 6
