From Nakama:

A change in the stakeout team throws Onoe, reporter for a weekly magazine, together with his contemporary, Kaburagi, a photographer. Onoe secretly considers Kaburagi his rival, and Kaburagi's haphazard way of doing things goes against Onoe's strong sense of ethics--there's nothing but conflict between them.

But, in joint pursuit of a scandal, the two of them begin to care about each other...?

Introducing the main fighting couple!

Series includes a crossover extra featuring the main couple from Doushiyoumo Nai Keredo

I almost cried when I saw the softcore yaoi tag. I want them to fuck. Like seriously. Whatever. Love it anyway. I love the uke. He's one of my favorite types, the almost-tsundere-but-not-quite-as-frustrating type. Love love love.

The bickering is just awesome and the pace is pretty slow for yaoi but I love it anyway. There's a tension that's built just by the first chapter. Seriously want them to do it hard. I want Onoe to get really screwed hard just to see his adorable-to-die-for turned on face

I love that the relationship is developed. I'm at chapter 4 so far as there aren't any updates yet, but wow, I never thought I'd get a semePOV. We rarely get a seme-POV and the seme isn't a dick!! *gasp*!! The way he sees Onoe makes me fall in love with both the characters even more. The seme isn't instantaneously in love with the uke.

Usually, when the uke discovers his feelings for the seme, he finds out later that the seme's liked him all along. This usual trope doesn't happen here because they totally develop their feelings around the same time, only Onoe's reactions are more obvious.

I love it when the seme finds the uke so adorable, he himself blushes despite being all cool and sexy. I just love a slightly blushing seme.

Edit: (ch.5 posted so far)
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
They finally did it, and though it wasn't as graphic and prolonged and made the center piece of the chapter as I would have wanted, I still melted with all the fluffy-ness. And then there's the hotness that was Onoe getting screwed and blushing and freaking hot and I just love him and Kabu and Nnnyaghn.

Fangirl brainmelt.

Edit: Chapter 8 posted
ohgod. ohgod. ohgod. ohgod. ohgod. ohgod. ohgod. ohgod. ohgod. ohgod. ohgod. ohgod.
It's rare that I still have the same, and maybe even more, amount of love for a manga that updates as frequently as this but, gawd, why do I still feel all giddy like when I first started reading this??

Fangirling to the next dimension, peoples.

Give this manga a shot and you'd be surprised. It gets better by the chapter and although things look like they're about to go all cliche, the characters do something pleasantly surprising (like actually talking and making an effort to understand each other)

The humor is lovely and, gawd, I still get weak in the knees whenever I think of Onoe getting screwed . Kabu is hot, like so many levels of HAWT, but he isn't just a pretty face. Their bickering is hilarious and there is a lot of heartwarming fluff that accompanies the sex, and don't even get me started on the sex!!

It's lighthearted and funny and gorgeously drawn. It isn't groundbreaking and not the type that makes you go into all kinds of introspection or whatever BUT it's an awesome pick-me-up and I can say it is one of my faves. I came to this for the humor and, well, to be honest, the sex, and ended up staying for the whole package because, goddamn, this-- this gets my fangirl juices flowing and I don't even care if I'm going into TMI territory.

Really cute relationship between the two main characters and I highly disagree with the person below me....there was nothing "shallow" about their relationship. They fell for each other after spending hours and hours of time together and started developing feelings after getting to really know each how the heck does that make it "shallow".

The progress is believable and actually really good. The art is perfect. I highly recommend this yaoi manga.

I'm quite enjoying the manga. I wouldn't usually go for the type of couple that bickers and fights a lot. But these two really make a great pair. They're more endearing because of their personality traits and the way they behave around each other.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Onoe is the type to blush easily and wear his feelings on his sleeve, throwing a temper tantrum if being teased or not getting his way while Kaburagi is the silent type, cool and composed, who usually remains calm in stressful situations but who is undone by Onoe.

The details of their profession took a while to understand and put into context but other than that, I've enjoyed reading the progress the characters made to be together.

This is one of the best yaoi manga I've ever read. Cute, light, and sexy. I just loved how things turned out in their relationship like how Onoe never showed his love with words so far (well, it's because he's tsundere though) but by being himself he made Kaburagi fall hard for him. Loved that Natsume-sensei made Onoe a blushing-easily character which is adorable. And Kaburagi is so sweet and pervented at the same time wink

Overall, it's a nice manga. Totally recommended.

I'm not usually in for Comedy BL because, quite frankly, I find the "humour" really not that funny or original or natural to being with. With this one though, I totally open an exception. For the laughs and the art style I totally recommend it. As far as plot goes, however, it's pretty predictable, basically from page one, but one should really ask herself if there's anything new and fresh (at all) concerning the Tsundere-Uke/Cool-Seme variety. Guess not, ahah.

Even though Onoe and Kabu had clear-cut personalities and could easily pull me in, I found their relationship rather shallow to be honest. Sure they had their heart-warming moments, mostly because I could more or less relate to them (especially to Onoe) in one way or other even more than once, but that alone - to me - doesn't make the relationship believable as a whole. Plus, I can't ignore the fact Kabu was always the one to take the initiative when it came to sex, and even worse: he always ignored Onoe's complains.

I really don't know which kind of sake these artists have been drinking but seriously: someone please remind them that "Stop, stop!" and "slow down" should equal "I don't want to have sex right now" and not "please give it to me harder!"

Overall it was still a great journey, and quite decent a reading too. The art was just awesome though. I'll be checking more of this author's works because of that alone. Ahahah.

It's been a long time since I read a manga with a couple such as this and I love it!
They are so great together, bickering, complaining and insulting each other in the funniest ways but they will just go on loving each other!
I can't wait for volume two and am already curious to see whether or not Onoe can finally accept his own feelings and show them a bit more.
Either way, as expected from Nastume Isaku sensei, a great romantic comedy!

normally i don't care for tsundere uke's at all. i think these two get a pass since they're both tsundere for each other and not in the annoying abusive way. onoe is BEYOND CUTE. his conviction and sense of justice combined with kabu's questionable ethics make for excellent chemistry. also i love how we get kabu's POV sometimes, he's also flipping adorable. it's rare that you get more than one pov in a manga like this, otherwise kabu might come off as just a cold jerk lol.

I loved this manga, the protagonists and the art. I liked the way the uke, him being tsundere and hatest first the seme and after falling in love with him. Already the seme i liked and didn't like it at the same time, he was very ciumente and did not want to leave the uke to do his job ... It was a great manga.

It's very cute and definitely worth a read! The art is absolutely great. Typical tsundere uke x seme stuff, but the reporter profession helps ground their relationship and give them a plot. There's also a chapter from the seme POV, which is something worth looking at. The manga's somewhat lacking though, as the tsundere's characterization doesn't have as many layers. He stops insisting on moral integrity and starts obsessing about denying his relationship. Eh, the manga isn't fully scanlated yet, so it could improve. It's a minor issue that makes this manga just shy of being special.
