I love it !
I remember I passed like 3 months without seeing or reading yaoi and then one random night I recalled my favorite chapter from this manga and after all, I stayed up until 4 am because I had the need to read the complete thing, hahaha!.. and my love for yaoi was reborn (well, it never died xD)...but yeah, Kimi ga koi ni Oboreru is THAT good.

Aww i need more :(
I liked the story , the art of sensei as always wonderful *w*, but... after read the epilogue of vol 3 and see the manga is complete, i really think sensei left a open ending for this story , I mean i feel like she needed to write a couple or just one more chapter to really give a good close for this story , like someone said before the story it doesn't seem complete. And I already read Kimi ga Koi ni Midareru (Sequel) and about this points sensei it didn't talk about it in that sequel serryouslly i keep with the feeling this story need at least one more chapter
Seems Half Done
I like this title the best out of the series, but it doesn't seem complete. I wanted there to be some reconciliation or confrontation with the brothers about what really went on in the first title, and I wanted to see a more fully developed relationship between Jinnai and Reiichiro, since there seems to still be a lot of mis-communication between them, as well as with the people around them.
But I'm holding out because the series isn't complete and the mangaka will hopefully go back and fill in the holes. Maybe after "Kimi ga Koi ni Midareru" the mangaka will expand on the 3 stories for a much more satisfying end.

Solid manga series!
While I don't think a 10 year age gap is anything special (unless one party is too young), it's an understandable worry of Jinnai that his boss is that much younger! All in all, I have to say that this is a great manga and definitely worth reading. Something that really surprised me here was, that after getting to know Reiichirou in the prequel, he turned out to be a totally different personality here than expected! I loved him in the prequel, and I was a bit confused reading Oboreru at first. However, he grew on me and while I understand he might come across too boring for some readers, that didn't bother me. He's extremely anti-social. He's not used to dealing with people and coming from a rich and famous home, he always just got everything he needed. I like that he's both a beauty and very innocent and inexperienced. He matches Jinnai very well - who is a character that is just lovable right from the start! He's impulsive and straight forward and loud and easily becomes rude, but then again he's a very sweet and caring guy. The prequel had a lot more emotion... passion... mostly because Jinnai is the only character showing feelings because Reiichiro is just horrible showing how he feels.
The story is not bad, even when it's not anything completely new or complex. Kijima adds some nice love rival/triangle effect while staying pretty reasonable. He's a fun character and his role got a lot better knowing that he is serious, and not just playing around. I'm excited he got his own sequel!
Well I really enjoyed this - even if not as much as the prequel - and I'd definitely recommend it. If you like innocent, clueless ukes and semes who are demanding and kind of lose their cool when around the uke, you might like this one.

Recommended work nevertheless
If there is something ridiculous about this manga, it will be the fact that there is a 10-year age gap between Rei and Jinnai. Come on, they look like friends around the same age. May be Jinnai just simply has a skin care secret *chuckle*
That aside, there is nothing else absolutely unrealistic about the relationship depicted in this manga in my opinion. Firstly, regarding why there are so many ukes who need to be taken care of in the yaoi world, the answer is quite simple. Most yaoi mangas are written by female mangaka and for target at female readers. With that being considered, many of the stereotypical characteristic of women are carried over to the ukes. I am not saying that all female are weak and undependable, but there are things that are expected more from the males. There are women who preferred to be treated exactly the same as their male counterparts, just as there are some strong image of ukes in yaoi. But over all, that explains why it is quite rare to find seme-like uke in yaoi and more in bara, which actually aims at male readers. Of course I personally am not a fan of cutesy girly ukes because they are guys after all, but Rei was not quite portrayed so here. In the end, he furthermore made a brave decision to break the family shelf, to stand for his belief; so it means that he has learnt and matured more though out the story and I don't see how Rei could be called an incapable person after all of that.
Secondly, regarding the complaints that Rei was so clueless, naive and that Jinnai was kind of forcing Rei into the relationship, I agree but only to some extends. Rei was indeed naive and clueless, but only in love. He was not a clueless as in thinking that life is pink and everyone will live happily ever after. In fact, due to his family situation, it is reasonable why he has not been able to go around dating and to have experience in sexual attraction. I have friends who have little or no clue about this matter too just because families are too strict and most of what they do are studying, working, or hanging out with friends while having a hard time to start a relationship. And as you can see from the manga, Rei struggled to become more socialize because he has not been exposed to the outside world a lot. It was not his fault to begin with while he indeed made effort to learn and improve. Therefore, just simply characterizing himas "naive" and "clueless" is a little unfair. Also, Jinnai did force Rei to consider their relationship. But it was Rei's consent that started their relationship as Rei claimed that he was very well aware of what they were doing and chose to let Jinnai do it. So Jinnai was not forcing Rei to do anything actually.
Last but not least, this yaoi is dramatic as it is categorized. There were issues keep coming, there were jealousy, but they were brought up in believable situations. Jinnai did not randomly become jealous because Rei talked to a friend and vice versa. Kimura did make some moves to threaten their relationship! Unless you are saying that you absolutely have no problem with your lover being around with your love rival, I don't see why anxiety is unacceptable here, and it should have nothing to do with trust or not. Also, insecurity over social gap is realistic problem. It might not happen to everyone, but it certainly happen to and trouble someone in real life. After all, this is a dramatic manga, so please do not look forward to finding a completely sweet and peaceful relationship but drama!
Disclaimer: I am not worshipping either this mangaka or this manga. I cannot say that this is the best manga of Hinako Takanaga sensei or by any mangaka either. This manga has to have some flaws but I would like to point out that I don't neccesarily agree with some pointed out by other reviewers. Also, this is my opinion, and I by no mean want to force it on anyone because I believe each of us has our own standards and philosophies.
Not a fan.
I'm not one for ukes who need to be watched after and cared for because they are incapable of it themselves. I don't enjoy reading it at all, and it's made worse by the fact that ukes like that are EVERYWHERE in BL manga. No thanks.
But the art wasn't bad, hence the 3/10.
Good Story, Great Art!
I really did like the plot and I also liked the characters involved, even though I wouldn't have thought that Reiichirou would turn out to be such a likeable character (regarding the prequel). And of course TAKANAGA Hinako's art was stunning.
I haven't read the prequel, so I have no idea what that's about, but I must say that I love Reiichirou, he's not perfect. Far from it. He's too blunt, too naive, too clueless, too unobservant, in fact, he's a whole list of too many other things that it'll take me ages to put everything down. Too pretty for one, it's enough to make a girl jealous. But that said, he's also very, terribly endearing, that's in my opinion anyway.
I like his personality quirks, I like that's he's truthful and sincere about everything, it's rather rare in this day and age. I can even extend my favour to his stupid innocence as well, it makes him rather refreshing coupled with that tactless wit of his. In all accounts, he's probably not the usual uke, he's not bright, cheerful and child-like, neither is he stand-offish and stubborn and energetic, and he's not sweet and demure either. So in some ways, his personality might not be for general consumption, but for a select group of people with particular tastes, which well, clearly includes me.
As for Jinnai, he's more typical; domineering, strong alpha male type, but not quite manipulative. He's the lighter type of seme in my opinion, think Hasunobe from Bitter by Minami Haruka, not Asami in the Finder series by Yamane Ayano. The problem with the generally good seme Jinnai is, is the fact that he's insecure.
Of course, one might find that sweet and lovely, but in my book, semes are to uphold the rules in How To Be An Alpha Male 101, and be absolutely confident in their fatal charms. So this is clearly about preferences, I happen to favour scheming, manipulative semes like Asami (of course, I do still like the lighter semes), but another person may enjoy the gentle, understanding semes. In any case, this series would still come highly reccomended by myself, and on another note, I do believe I dislike Tsukasa.
Good story telling, decent art, cliche plot. This was written quite well as far as story telling and progression goes and was enjoyable to read because of that, but I didn't really like the characters much. I felt reiichirou was flat and jinnai was kind of a spoiled brat who becomes forceful when insecure, like a little kid with a toy. There were a lot of things going on which irked me. Overall though it was a decent read. I actually like the prequel to this more even though most people find it to be the other way around. I liked the characters more.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I read this before the prequal and the amount Rei seems to have suffered from the prequal makes me really NOT want to read it. I mean, i've read most of senseis work 'cos i love her works to bits but really, i dont want to see the pure Rei being the apparently mean one. Despite popular opinion, Reis charecter felt so real to me but Jinnais charecter was even more so. Like in the begining when he was feeling regret at also hurting Rei's pure heart. The whole time i just thought 'Poor Rei' as Jinnai made him so amazing through his eyes.
Despite being a manga charecter in a Yaoi, i well and truly love Rei and throughout i emphasised with his feelings and his naiveness is rapturing. Yet, i also understand why Jinnai kind of lost it in the second volume. In the begining he was cocky, but then he grew more insecure due to Rei's passive attitude. Thats why he only go comfort when Rei wa possesive and jealous even though it only angered Rei when Jinnai was jealous over him. However, i did get momentarily annoyed when Jinnai sees Rei outside the hotel with the girl and he's all gettin jealous and then hes like ' there really is nothing im guilty off' an dim like, DUDE youw ere just in the lift getting a massive confession HELLO and he kissed you on the top of your head ¬_¬ and so rei has every right to be in pain after all hes doin is escorting some clingy girl home ¬___¬
However, most relationships are irrational and i felt the argument afterwards was very realistic because most couples do have fights that have so much fuel and anger (not much rape lol...well i dont think?)
Anyway, i love this story and the charecter progression in it and its my fave from this sensei <3 followed closely by Bukiyou na silent and then Tyrant :D
