Endou-kun no Kansatsu Nikki

Because of changes in seating arrangements, high school student Tsuda ended up behind the quiet and expressionless Endou. Their interaction is born from a trivial incident, and he begins to see Endou who he has never gotten to know before. That mole, slender nape, and soft hair. The subtle faces that he makes and little changes in his attitude. But Tsuda, who used to be indifferent about others and never made any deep connections, now feels impatient about the distance between him and Endou, who he has been gradually getting closer to. What on earth is drawing these feelings?

Very cute. Pretty repetitive in the context but makes it poet in a way. I guess Endou liked Tsuda way longer then huh. Endou's hair really does look soft, like a Yorkie, probably hahha. I liked Tsuda with his hair down. The hair cut scene was funny.

I don't want to spoil it for everyone so I'm going to be brief, but I seriously can't help myself squealing at how much I love this manga and Hayakawa Nojiko-sensei. She truly managed to leave a deep impression on me with this series particularly. While one might find it hard to read through all her panels I had no trouble at all, in fact I often found myself lingering at a spot once in a while just to truly savour and admire her beautiful artwork, and I did that with a passion.

PS: The sexual tension here in the manga is just off the hook. I'm eagerly waiting for a group to pick up the sequel to this one and see how things'll turn out, hopefully we'd finally be able to see some real actions.

The plot is simple - if you're looking for elaborate declarations of love and jealousy, this is not it. This is quiet and lovely and relies not on dialog but on scenes and expressions and basically reading in between the (few) lines.

It feels a bit like watching snow fall at night. It has that kind of atmosphere. It was really nice. smile

I like how this author gets us to the people getting together (it's always done so wonderfully), but I also kinda wish we could see what happens AFTER. But that's probably a whole other story.

i found this manga almost...poetic in its presentation of images and the paneling. dialogue is limited since the mains themselves aren't the type to talk much, but so much is expressed in how they see one another and the things that are going on in the background (the kiss on the train platform scene comes to mind) that you feel instead of know what is going on in the character's minds. i agree with the character chiba and infinity that the kiss was freaking HOT. and this is just a shounen ai ;_; i also love the way the minor characters were constructed and characterized. they grow on you as well.

this was just plain fun to read! I love stories that deviate from the same-old-same old yaoi story. This was like a gulp of fresh air! Ugh, and that kiss at the end! The couple's chemistry is just so captivating. I love the characters, too. No one is just a charaicature, every1 has a purpose. Anyway, read it. It'll make your day better.

I don't think this is the most accessible manga out there in terms of that there's so much subtle meaning in each panel and the way the story is told is completely out of wack. Most people are going to dismiss this as boring (not that there's anything wrong w/ this opinion), but for people who like those mangas that are crazy weird this is a must read.

It's a very surreal manga (i.e. Oyasumi Punpun or Annarasumunara), and quite often you'll see that what Endou and Tsuda are feeling isn't said but is expressed through pictures. Like the whole first scene when Tsuda suddenly sees Endou being twisted into some sort of pseudo-sexual position can be taken as the beginnings of his attraction to Endou. I could honestly write about 15 pages of analysis for all the subtle/surrealistic elements I saw in this. If you want a fairly straightforward manga that you don't have to sit around and analyze then this is not for you.

On the whole, I thought that Endou had quite a bit of character development for such a short series, and Tsuda was much more than just a cardboard cut-out of a character. And man oh man, is their chemistry hot. I'm ok reading through hardcore yaoi and then I read this kiss scene and I'm like "WOAW THERE." That kiss scene was probably one of the most sensual I've ever read.

Overall, I felt it was a fairly nice read that made me sit around and think for a bit. Sure it's not perfect and it's not the best BL out there, but for me, it definitely was not boring. It's a polarizing manga, just like surrealism as a genre is. Try out it, and you might end up with something you really like. Don't go in expecting the same old angst found in BL about high school students.

The art was a little sketchy but i guess that is what made it so appealing. I found it incredibly cute the way the two got together and how, despite the lack of dialouge, they still came together. Even till the end, none of them said they loved each other because it was something so obvious and was not expressed through words but with their emotions and passion.

The story was calm and i like that the order was different and that the storyline wasn't just linear, but went in different directions and to each ones version etc

However, i didnt understand the whole pencil with the number thing?

Boring is the first word that come to my mind reading this and I'm really surprise that I even finished it. So the first half was really nothing at all, no character introduction and no progress.I really can't call it slow pace because there isn't. The interaction of the main characters was so small that most scene are with other characters. I'm pretty sure that it's not only me which will be surprise with that one scene
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the kiss at the train station which Endou initiated
. After that boring first half, the second half of the manga was the POV of the other main character which repeated the story. You can basically call this a oneshot with 30 pages but just in 180 pages!!
I don't recommend this if it's not your first time reading same genre, well even if it's your first time.

This manga has that nice hazy/dreamy aura about it,- but i thought it was lacking in a lot of categories. For one, the pacing was all over the place, panels were messy and confusing. Ultimately, i can see what the mangaka was attempting to achieve for, but unfortunately it failed to have an effect on me and fell short; coming off as cliche.

I just loved this story! I found it sweet and beautiful and endearing.
The plot is not groundbreaking (I mean, it's a love story between two school boys) but the way it is written and drawn makes it stand out among other similar stories. The art is absolutely gorgeous, the characters are likeable (Tsuda is big and huggable; Endou and his moles are adorable; Tsuda's friend is nice and I liked how the girls were portrayed here too) and I enjoyed the pace of it all.
Some parts were touching, some funny and some very poetic.
I recommend it a lot if you like this kind of sweet, slice-of-life kind of story!!!
