As most other reviewers have mentioned, this is really cute. Not at all "overrated" as some others have said. In my opinion anyway. Here's why:

The art is just beautiful and so clean. The main aspect of the art that I loved though was how you can really see the lust and desire in the main characters' eyes when they are looking at, or even just thinking about, the other. And due to the amazing art, all the kissing and sex scenes were deliciously hot. Plus, there is no clear distinction between the two leads in terms of appearance -- by that I mean there is no tiny, gooey-eyed, feminine uke and massively muscled seme. Instead they are of similar height and body type, which I liked, as it made it seem more realistic. After all, anyone who believes gay men only come in two sizes (tall men must be seme and short ones must be uke) have clearly read far too much mainstream "yaoi". So thank goodness for decent, modern BL like this that has a much more realistic grip on homosexuality.

Anyway, the plot itself is great. In all honesty, it's not at all unique, as rivals-become-lovers in a school setting really isn't anything new, but it's the kind of plot I like. If you want something with action, fantasy, or something with a completely unique type of plot, then this clearly isn't it, but as a fluffy yet slightly smutty manga, it really does the job well. Another plus for me, is the dynamic the leads have with each other. After all, I always love bickering couples (all of my favourite pairings are like that), and these two are a perfect example. Also, amazingly, there were no stupid love triangles in this!! One slight misunderstanding, but no real angst. Just a lot of teenage sexual tension. Yum.

The characters really are just so loveable. Not a single one that I dislike. There's the academic genius who is actually an idiot
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
by offering to teach someone else how to have sex, despite being a virgin himself, haha ^__^
with a slight sadistic streak (I really liked that about him). Then there's the "Prince of tennis" who, despite his cool and calm appearance, is actually super cute and even a little bit masochistic. And even though he does look unbelievably adorable at times, when he gets mad, he gets scary. Then there's the side characters... I can't be bothered to mention them all individually, but they were all entertaining and I didn't find any of them to be annoying. Which for me is quite unusual, as I tend to dislike female characters in manga, but I liked the girls in this too.

Anyway this is such a brilliant manga, that the only flaw (in my opinion) is that it isn't longer!

EDIT: After re-reading this again recently, I still think this deserves a 10/10. I don't think I have overrated it in the least. If you want something with heavy angst, stupid love-triangles, and characters being raped or killed-off, then this certainly isn't what you're looking for. If, like me, you are looking for something cute that isn't totally nauseating, then this is perfect for just that.
I noticed another reviewer who said that if you're a heavy yaoi reader then to avoid this... well, if you're definition of "yaoi" is the sort with horrific art where the characters are completely disproportionate and the plot either follows the "seme must rape uke, so uke will fall in love, even though seme is complete jerk" trope or "one guy confesses, they have sex, then other guy falls in love too", then yes, definitely avoid this. Because this is far too good to even be considered that sort of "yaoi". If, however, you mean "BL", then I completely disagree. I'm also an avid reader of BL manga, having read literally hundreds of BL stories, and even then I still think this is great. It may not be as hot and heavy as others, and normally I do think the smuttier the better, but in this case the abundance of sexual tension is more than enough. /rant over.

RomCom Drama. Haa?

Another RomCom manga. Well, I may tend to admire Drama more, but I am and always gonna be a sucker for comedy. *laughs*

PLOT: Of course, itís typical to set romance-comedy BL in High School. I doní know why, but yeah, never mind. Another typical here is the fighting couple and ending up being stuck together. But I donít find Ďem all as turnoffs for the story, though. I bet this would turn into something strange if this story has taken place in an office. Itís more of childish that it suits well on a campus. What I donít like about here is that it didnít satisfy me on the romance element. Thereís something missing. They just all do this then they want to monopolize one another.

ART: I commend the art. Itís actually the reason why I decided to pick this manga out of the bunch. Itís clean. I could read the protagonistsí emotion within their faces. The art is good, thatís all.

CHARACTERS: MISATOíS TOO CUTE TO BE TRUE! I really like him, especially when he wants Kasukabe to do things he have not done with anyone else yet. If I were Kasukabe, I might as well monopolize him as much as what Kasukabe has been.*laughs* Kasukabeís oddly coolness is refreshing as well, for an airhead, idiotic seme as him. Just leave that Kadokura and the others. I donít like Ďem. Theyíre all useless.

I donít have anything to say. I just want to share that this is a refreshing RomCom BL manga. Itís funny and sexy. I f youíre craving for some laugh out loud Ďtil death kind of manga, I recommend this one. Itís not fully comedy though. It still has its dense and the impact.

From beginning to end I couldn't put it down because I was attracted to the cuteness. In my opinion it's a soft and cute manga, that will make you say the word "cute" various times. All in all it's a simple and good read!!

No, seriously, it's really, really good- go read it. Not cliche or boring at all, and the characters are great! Katsukabe is so quirky and fun, and Misato is adorable. It may be a little role-reversal considering the seme-uke designation, but the mangaka pulls it off amazingly well- there's none of that awkward uhh, this doesn't seem right sort of feeling. And let me just say, this isn't super graphic or anything, but this manga seriously gets my heart going more than something really smutty, lol. The character expressions are just drawn out really well (did I mention the clean, cute art?), and I'm a sucker for a well-done blushing face... and although there's no plot outside of the experimentation thing, and although it's really short, this is definitely a memorable manga that's going to stick with me for a long time. So, yeah. Go and read it. biggrin

It was a fun read. The characters were a little shallow, which I'm not very fond of, but the kissing panels were just breathtaking. I particularly loved the first long and detailed kissing scene. The art has its on and off moments but overall it was rather enjoyable. One thing I can't quite get over with is the fact Misato was so obviously the seme to me... at least they could have hinted at the possibly of their switching positions. Kasukabe seems like an awkward seme, is all. Ahah.

Anyway, quite fun.

I can absolutely second moeanao's comment about the summary sounding cliché. However, somehow the characters turned out to be COMPLETELY different from the way they were portrayed in the beginning. It didn't feel out of place though, I found their intimate characters quite credible and fitting. Also, the facial expressions drawn by KISARAGI Manami are excellent. This was utmost entertainment. Read it!

Unexpectedly good

By the summary you might just think this is just any other cliché yaoi manga. But this one was unexpectedly good! I was hooked from the first chapter to the last. For some reason, when it was complete it became one of my favorties right away.
The story wasn't really that special, but for some reason I really liked it.
But one of the best points this manga has is the fact that the seme and uke is hard to figure out. The only reason I thought Kasebe was the seme, was because he was a sadist, and more dominant than Misato. Though, whenever Misato actually pushed Kasebe down I would be hesitating about my opinion...
The art is also great! It's a cute kind of art. In a good way, I really liked it.
I've already read this manga countless of times, it's really that good.
One of the things that this manga is lacking are the sex scenes! I mean, there are plenty of sex scenes (or maybe jerking/sucking off scenes), but they could have been longer, especially the actual sex scene. And in the extra chapter they skipped it *sigh* The mangaka is too shyy~~

This manga is funny, intriguing and keeps one interested from start to finish!
The way the characters are portrayed is a bit uncommon and it's very refreshing!
This is a fun to follow bully-the-one-you-like story and I'd recommend it to anyone.

I liked it!! But I'm quite not satisfied with the seme having the uke face. He looks girlie enough to be the uke! It's like as if I'm reading a reversible couple. But complaints aside, this is a cute story! Very cute and although the plot seems normal, it's pretty well developed and the characters are all so interesting! Nice read!!
