I usually hate yaoi with age-difference because more often than not, there is some degree of dub/non-con and emotional manipulation going on especially when the uke is more on the submissive side. But Otokogokoro is great: the uke is innocent and naive, but not in the way that gets on ur nerve, he's not a brat and comes across as a genuinely nice kid. The seme is cool, but not in that pseudo sleek rich and "powerful" way that is overused in a lot of yaoi n shoujos, and he is actually a responsible adult. So yea, Kanda Neko's slowly becoming one of my fav authors - its a fine read so give it a try

My God!
There is something so intriguing about Otokogokoro that i just had to explain my love for it ^^

The art is so beautiful, as expected of Kanda-Sensei and I really adore her art style because it has such a cutesy feeling to it~ ahh i mean look at that cover! <3
Another thing i love about this manga is that the characters are so easy to fall in love with and the storyline makes it that much better. It has a strong atmosphere to it and makes you want to keep turning the pages to find out more about the characters themselves and their relationship with one
another. You have the average kawaii uke who blushes like crazy and a lusty seme *-*
So yeah, please read this manga whenever you have free time because it will satisfy what you're looking for.

Quite interesting and promising...
I always fall for the honest and innocent type...
It's also a major plus for me because the uke was so straightforward with his feeling..
I'm kinda tired of the tsun-tsun type...
plus the built of the uke was right for me, not so delicate and petite but a normal 18 year old man..
the seme was hot too..
i give the art a 10
the plot a 9
the characters a 10

it's an overall great manga...
i wish they would translate the other 2 sequels of this manga...
soooo loooking forward to this..
a great start of my yaoi quest this year..hehehe ^_^

Is this manga is going to be continued? Please!! I've spent 1 year waiting for the sequel. This is my all time favorite manga, I've read almost every cute manga there is but this one is just so adorable, just makes me happy, motivates me and it's just perfect. I wish it would just never end ;_; I need help, I'm too obsessed with this xD Love the author <3 And the characters are just so adorable, every character is so great, even the doorman xD Kanda can show us the personality of someone with so few words and you just can't help but fall in love with characters. And also I love that it's not only a romance but a comedy and a slice of life, I just laugh so hard when they turn into chibies it's so cute. Just to see that they live happily together and enjoying life is enough to make my day and make me so happy. Thanks Kanda neko for this unforgettable experience, hope it'll continue, please make sure to notify me, thanks in advance. Love you <3

Well I dont get why this manga has high ratings and praises. Okay the art is good but not that good and most of all the story was empty. I mean in all these chapters the story lacked like both uke and seme were really stereotypical and the mangaka doesnot present good how they can fall in love this much. I mean give us more reasons, more deep things.
This manga greatly lacks depth of story and characters, thats it.
