Sweet, but..

I do feel like I don't hate what I read, but it's not that I'm totally in love with it either. The stories all have a more shounen-ai feel to them than yaoi, which is probably why they come across as rather cute and thus could suit the taste of the majority of readers better. As for me I would have liked to see more substance though (especially in the first two stories); it's just that the developments seem a bit too.. sudden and convenient for me to buy them? I'm more comfortable with the last two stories (or one-shots) although that might have something to do with the smut, haha. But still, the art is pretty neat, and the low-key vibe is generally quite enjoyable, so I've gotta give the mangaka credits for those.

This is a great collection of oneshots and short stories!
I loved the first couple because the boy is just too sweet, so cold and all, but when you see him smile, your heart will melt! The 2nd story is about the other couple that already appeared in the first, and their story is also pretty damn sweet.
After that is a comedic oneshot that is just hilarious and hot! The final story about two brothers is also pretty fun but doesn't have a real ending to it sadly.
Altogether I have to say that I really enjoyed this book and I'd recommend it to all Boys Love fans who enjoy oneshots.

Nice collection; I especially liked the final story, it had a lot of steamy incestuous moments ^^ although I agree with the comment below, it is left hanging slightly. Not too badly though, it is (sort of) wrapped up in the afterword but it would've been nice to see more of a solid ending.
Anyway I liked all the other couples too, but the last chapter was what stood out for me.

I liked the last story! It was quite entertaining although the mangaka shouldn't have let the story hang in the air like that! It'd love to see what happened to those two brothers. But anyway, the overall stories in this manga is...okaaaaaay. The first story's main character seems stiff and whatever he says, he seems like...expressionless! But that's what makes him so cute I guess. bigrazz

This manga was very refreshing. Not that i dont like your typical yaoi with super handsome, super rick semes and gullible ukes who love sex from day 1 and the seme 'can't hold' himself back etcetera haha and so for this manga and truly explore these feelings felt good.
The first story was cute and the doubts the uke went through really made you think about the problems that the gay society face and how scary it could be.

finally! a yaoi manga where the uke isnt a weepy idiot that randomly decides to be gay, and follows after the seme i'll put the rest of my post in spoilers just in case.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
Hinata actually hesitates and has doubts Kasahara chases after him, but still the hinata doesnt just give into the gay life style like every other uke, and he isnt either happy or sad all the time like the normal uke. he is actually quite moody and a little bit of a jerk, though i think its because he is afraid of the feelings kasahara is awakening inside of him. he even hurts kasahara at one point in the story, which is weird normally the seme is the jerk. but its understandable that he freaked out at the thought of being in a gay relationship.

also, he doesnt just give in and allow himself to be raped, and althought kasahara triest to seduce him he stops when he realizes how upset hinata is. ive gotten tired of the rapist seme, and the uke that is "forced" to have sex. mind you the uke never fights back!

its too bad it was only 3 chapters that this couple shows up in, but i like how it felt like a more realistic relationship, vs the other relationships ive seen in yaoi manga.
