In the Mirai no Kioku series:
V.1 - Mirai no Kioku
V.2 - Kaze no Yukue
From Deux Press: Kento Kumagaya wishes for just one simple thing: to have a happy family with the ideal housewife, loving kids, and kind grandparents all living together, happily ever after. Life, however, has other plans. Enter Akira Kazuki, a smart, beautiful and unrestrained gay man who shatters Kentoís dream with a single night of wild and passionate homosexual sex. This is a romantic, sweet and funny story between two different people (in more ways than one) who unexpectedly find the same future together.
Note: also contains an unrelated oneshot called "Winter Rabbit" in the English release by Deux Press.

Definitely my favourite work from the author to date
Kunieda Saika-sensei ranks very high on my bias list, and one of the reasons for that is this immensely incredible piece of work which I've lost count of how many times I've revisited time and time again. The main characters are absolutely the biggest assets that the manga's got; no reader will not end up adoring them in the end. The side characters are also very interesting, and the author's humour played wondrously at breathing life into the whole story. It's very heart-warming, not in the cutesy fluffy school-boy love kind of way, but in a more realistic perspective that grown-up adults will experience. Watch how people came to meet, then fall in love, then overcoming very real obstacles in life while creating bonds with fellow human beings along the way. The artwork is absolutely a personal bonus for me, despite how some people could find it unappealing or whatnot. Everyone must definitely read this.
Being one of my all time favorites, this manga have all the things I usually look for. Realistic story, good art, and likable characters. I really love Kuneida Saika, and as someone who has probably read all of her scanlated work, I can clearly say that this is the best one.
Unfortunately Iím bad at explaining, so I donít want to spoil this amazing manga for you. Just read it, and you will understand what I mean.
One of the best
This is really such a well orchestrated manga. It's based in the realm of reality for the most part while still being thoroughly engaging and sweet. It isn't overly fluffy, but isn't angsty or gritty either. They have a realistic relationship with realistic arguments which are solved in a realistic time frame and with no melodrama. That alone makes this a gem, but the story as a whole is super heartwarming. The characters are awesome(all of them, not just the main two). Yes, Akira is flamboyant, but I wouldn't call him girlie at all. He's actually pretty sloppy and mannish in a lot of ways. His character is wonderfully multi-dimensional. I continue to love this no matter how many times I've read it. Definitely make sure you read both volumes.
Kunieda Saika is not a bad author or artist ^^ i really liked this manga because it was cute and it's nice to see how different their personality's were but in the end, they still managed to get along

I really love this managa
Some parts are really realistic and I'm always giggling. ^^ I would definitely recommend this, even though the art isn't what I'm usually into, it's actually very clean and neat. So read this, for sure.
This is one of the best yaoi I've ever read. I've waded through a lot of cliche crap in order to read a gem like this. It's thoughtful, realistic, and truely funny. In fact, this is one of the best romantic comedies I've ever read, managing to be equally romantic and funny. Don't miss the sequel, it's just as good.
I really enjoyed this- it's a fraction better than Kaze no Yukue, but I'm not gonna split hairs over that. This is also a beautiful story. I normally avoid mangas that have flaming bishounen ukes and bisexual salaryman type brute semes.... you know how the stereotype goes, yadayadayada etc. BUT in this case the story and humour just made it all irrelevant to me. This will remain in my mind for a long time. Highly recommended to anyone who loves mature yaoi.
Excellent main story, ok oneshot.
I love the main story - Deux press titles it "Future Lovers, volume 1". A perfect mix of quirky humour, adult jokes and unexpected plot twists that are Kunieda sensei's trademark. Eagerly awaiting the release of volume 2. However I found the oneshot "Winter Rabbit", which takes up the last third of the book, to be not quite up to the mangaka's usual standard - hence the slightly lower rating.
Ah, these characters are definitely not perfect, and neither is their relationship perfect. Kento is a traditional stick in the mud who's in denial, Akira is a compulsive liar and drama queen, and they fight constantly. Nevertheless, these two are perfect for each other. Kunieda-sensei never lets up in showing both their weaknesses, their tenderness, and the growing pains that real gay couples go through. I like how she (he?) doesn't resolve everything in one volume, but the plot doesn't feel dragged out, either. It's a rare yaoi that can make me laugh and cry, and both this and its sequel did both! Waaa~ I want another sequel!

One of the few yaoi mangas I actually dont mind storing on my hard drive! Sweet, romantic, funny, PLOT, this one has it all. Plus, in my opinion, a funny set of grandparents.
