The sudden change of mind ruins it...   
Rating: 3.0 / 10.0

It started out good and I liked the characters, but the way Fumi suddenly, randomly decides he likes Takeo back, after being 100% straight and against it before is just very unbelievable. It feels rushed and out of place. Straight into the relationship, he started rushing for sex.... I wished it would have taken either a more realistic approach or not spent so much time at the start with Fumi hating on Takeo and homosexuality.
It's not that I hate how Fumi changed but looking at the manga, it just seems like two completely different BL mangas where cut in halves and put together there... making it not as good a read as it could have been.

The art is cute but the facial expressions seem very repetitive.
All the sudden Fumi doesn't mind him being an otaku anymore, the sex comes outta nowhere and is started by the straight guy ...............ug............................... and the joy of Takeo finally having Fumi after 16 years of one sided love also does not come across! Really, it's disappointing how underwhelming everything ends up being, totally different from how the start of the manga makes it seem.

I wouldn't recommend it to anyone unless they don't mind characters randomly turning 180 degrees or you don't care for characters and story.

The story actually had potential at the start, but the mangaka decided to rush everything through. IMO, if the mangaka wants to make this a good story, she should slower the pace of the manga and make it into perhaps, a few volumes to fully develop the characters? The romance is unrealistic. "I love you, I love you" x1000, *le touched* "Ok we should start dating" - are you kidding me? The art is pretty mediocre.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
Well, it actually varies on how the reader "views" Fumi's character. He constantly kept saying "just how much are you in love with me?" or somewhere between those lines. I think he wanted assurance from Takeo..and I know 17 years is quite long but sometimes "all those years of loving" still wouldnt make you feel secure. There's always a tomorrow, right? Feelings can change. But this is just how I saw Fumi personality as..I guess if the mangaka gave more depth to it others would share my sentiments. More importantly, love, attraction and all those that lead up to sex can't be forced. If Fumi valued their friendship he would've kept a safe distance from Takeo from the very beginning. And take note that the secretary kept lecturing him about being in denial..which I think was the mangaka's way of saying what I pointed out in the first place (Takeo's hidden insecurity).

Anyway, each to it's own right? As for me..I liked the ending, could've been longer, Takeo's niece was cute, etc etc. I'll give it a decent 7 cause I love happy endings and the art was pretty ^^

I had a really hard time believing that the uke was in love with his otako seme...the whole time the girl was lecturing him about denying his love, I kept thinking that he really seemed to only feel friendship for the seme (and not even super close friendship at that). Their relationship just seemed too forced.

Personally, I thought the art was just average and the story was even lower than that.

I think the author made a good challenge for Takeo; an otaku and all and the person he likes HATES otakus. Takeo feels that no matter how hard he tries, as long as he's an otaku and a GUY to top it all off, Fumi'll never like him. It's so sad when Takeo asked Fumi, "So if I ever become a poor penniless otaku, you won't like me anymore?" sad Not the exact words, but similar words. I guess Fumi really forced himself to like Takeo and in the end, he did. It was so cute when Fumi's younger brother's (married to Takeo's secretary) kid was like, "Uncle Fumi and Uncle Takeo were kissing!" HAHA! The mom was like, "Hey, don't teach my kid stuff like that!" Fumi's younger went speechless! bigrazz

I liked the story's presentation at times from Fumi's younger brother's perspective. His quirky, down-to-earth and accepting nature was very likeable. It was unsual and creatively interesting to see the story narrated at times from this in-the-middle man, who ends up acting as a somewhat love-helper for Takeo.

Like everyone in the story, including a potentially awesome blunt and hard-hitting female character, Takeo and Fumi were both lacking in character development. They weren't overly likeable in their folibies nor human emotions of tenderness, desire, angst, anger..they were just sort of flat. There were a few scenes that had a little butterfly flutter about in my stomach, but it never fluttered furiously or even for very long. Same goes for the humour: I'd just start chuckling a tiny bit (always in scenes with the brother and Takeo) and blam! it's over.

Just when I thought 'oh my! it's starting to get good - it was over! The acceptance of the relationship from Fumi's personality was totally unrealistic and anti-climatic. The ending for the brother was horribly rushed.

The art was clean, clear and emotionally captured correctly, but nothing really outstanding. The story certainly made the art less shiny that it had true potential for. The angles and panels were never really highlighting the drama as well as they could, either.

I gave it a 7 because it kept me reading right to the end in one sitting, and many mangas I simply abandoned. But it isn't one that I'd recommend with the plethora of manga that do sparkle with story and art bouncing beautifully off one another...

Wow, how incredibly boring! The only possible point of interest - that one is an otaku, and the other has a total hate-on for all that moe rubbish - is abandoned almost immediately, and I'm sorry but just *telling* us (over and over and bloody over) that one undeserving horrible guy is unwittingly in love with another paper cut-out of a man isn't really enough. Normal yaoi plot-point follows normal yaoi plot-point, and blah blah blah.

The habitual interest-ghetto - the extra story at the end - is also rubbish. Too late for a refund once it's out of the packaging?

It's really a good story but somehow the way the main couple got together seemed a bit too rushed, with no big revelation of "ah yes i do love him" or anything like that just sort of an ok. Oh well i guess it's fine and i did like the other couples as well.
