From Juné:

Yousuke suddenly shows up on the door step of his old classmate Tanigawa, with whom he lost touch after high school. While the two had a budding relationship back in school, things fell apart and they decided to part ways and search for their true love. However, it might be that their relationship in the golden days of high school was what they have been looking for all along. Can they both figure out the meaning of true love that they never knew back then?

Life is like a cycle and so is love. What once was lost can turn full circle and be found once more. Shoko Hidaka's collection of eye-opening love stories also includes a coffee store owner that has to choose between his work and his love for an aspiring artist, and a public prosecutor who must hide his personal relationship with a detective from their working peers.

A second storyline involves Shibuya and Mikami, two of Tanigawa's students and a misunderstanding that threatens their relationship.
The story between Shibuya and Mikami continues at one of the chapters of Signal.

Plot-wise, nothing new can be found in this collection of oneshots. Still, I find the way stories are told quite refreshing. For the most part, focus is on already established couples and the way they deal with their relationships. It's about relationship dynamics, not so much about how those couples came to be. For that reason, characters, their motives and doubts feel very real and overall atmosphere has a nice amount of angst.

Art is not extremely beautiful, but it is nice enough for enjoyable reading.

forget standard seme/uke dynamics. it doesn't matter here who tops and who bottoms; they don't get assigned personalities based on that. that is never a part of hidaka's stories, and it's a big reason why i like them, because i am dead tired of those stereotypes

i do always want to know more about the characters in her stories, but that doesn't make the stories incomplete; it just means she manages to endear the characters to me even if there are only 20 pages in which to do it. i'm almost always satisfied, whether or not i am gonna get more later. except here is one of those rare stories here where i am not -- eiji and keigo in "right or left" frustrate me a little. and she never did write more about them, so i gather she left it that way on purpose. *little grump*. i can appreciate the intellectual exercise, but i don't read her for that.

her art fits well with her stories; it's not overwhelmingly pretty, and she doesn't have the best character differentiation between stories, but it's good -- it's not very shoujo-ish (lack of flowers and sparkles overflowing each page is a plus in my book). i really enjoy looking at it. i think hidaka is my "comfy slipper" of BL; it's comfort reading i pick back up especially at times when i need to relax.

i like the first story so much, it's about love-hate relationship between the top two students. this story has sequel in signal manga, but i think it's not enough. i want more story about them. shibuya (seme side) is such a badass but genius student, he has arrogant tone and really childish. he always makes mikami pisses off. he's new transfer student who can beat mikami in test. and mikami is dilligent person, but he's seriously in love with shibuya. that makes him so adorable. mikami is not really girly uke, he's so adorable just the way he is. sometimes I feel sorry for him, because his feelings toward shibuya too much exposes in this chapter more than shibuya's feelings in signal (because i see it in the way mikami's so frustated/depressed about how much he loves shibuya, when shibuya ignores him) i describe this chapter more than other chapters, because i love this chapter so much.

chapter two is about shibuya & mikami's teacher. he caught shibuya and mikami made love. the story is sweet. tanigawa and yousuke are highschool's friends. they were lovers in highschool but they broke up. now, yousuke comes to tanigawa's house.

chapter 3 is about a new transfer guy (he is gay) and a straigh guy in the office. (i cant describe about this so much, because it's not my favorite ^^; )

chapter 4, hmm, i like it, i think the problem is in uke, eiji. and how he cant tell and express to seme, keigo, that he loves him. it can be more complicated if keigo's sister has feeling to eiji and how he feels jealous because keigo's art is better than him, haha, it's only one chapter. =_=

chapter 5, i like chapter 5! i like the type of uke who not really girly-annoying type. seo (uke) is cold type and he can make hazawa (seme) is madly in love with him. he is so adorable in the last of this chapter.

chapter 6, it's the sequel of chapter 2's story. the point of view is yousuke now.

I feel like all of these stories have so much potential to become something more memorable if they were a little more fleshed out. Not to say that I didn't like them, because each of them were very enjoyable to read with just the right amount of romance and angst, but they still leave me wanting to know more about the characters and their backgrounds.

I adore the main story still, even though I've read many like it by now. There's something in the way the art and words combine to make *this* version special. My only reservation about this volume is that I wish there had been a second one with the main story characters. It's not that the mangaka left the story unfinished, but there was more to know about them, and I wish we had that chance. Comments based on English language release.
