Pretty good, but nothing brilliant
Cute, oft-bespectabled otaku Hina is busy at work in the manga/anime superstore he’s employed at when a “princely” advertising executive called Amai suddenly appears before him. When they meet again by accident and discover a common love of video games, a friendship develops. It isn’t long before the two men fall for each other ― the only problem is, neither of them realise their own feelings.
I was initially impressed with this manga’s steady pace. The first few chapters are devoted to how Hina and Amai meet and become friends ― none of the usual jumping-into-bed-five-minutes-after-meeting trope that is too often used by BL manga-ka to force the relationship along. I was also amused by some of the self-referential and in joke elements in the story: the manga shop Hina works at, “Anime Freaks” in Ikebukuro, is modelled directly on the real-life Animate store in the same place.
