Description
Mishima, a student at a school in the countryside, is bullied by his classmates. The reason is because he's seemingly gay. In reality, Mishima does like guys so he doesn't resist their bullying, and instead, finds solace in secretly cross-dressing. One day on the rooftop, Mishima finds the lipstick he'd lost before in the hands of Kirino, one of the bullies... and Kirino was about to put on the lipstick that Mishima used on his own lips. This is the story of young boys looking for a place they can really be themselves...

Quite deep...

This story is actually REALLY good...and quite harrowing in certain aspects...also really sad especially during the second volume. You can't help but feel sympathy and empathy for them all at the same time. The relationship between each characters are really unique and kind of unexpected. I really liked how the mangaka kept the balance between Kirino and Mishima, I won't spoil anything, but I really enjoyed how they didn't take the orthodox yaoi formula. Thank god that they didn't because it wouldn't fit too much with those two haha.

I would say this one of the most thoughtful yaoi mangas out there I've ever read and it made me read the raws too to understand beyond the scanlated chapters haha. It's that worth it.
There isn't much yaoi, but like the previous commentator said, there are some mature themes inside the manga.
Ending is certainly a tear-jerker, just thinking about it makes me sad. :_(

This series is so good that I just had to sign up to post this. The main plot of this manga is not really about Yaoi (if you're all about the hot sex, this is not the manga for you), since it focuses more on the characters' growth as individuals. Basically, a coming-of-age story following characters who happen to be homosexual. Some pretty heavy themes were discussed in this series (attempted rape, single-parent families, coming out to your family, bullying, etc etc).

All the characters are fleshed out really nicely and are pretty relatable with (even the antagonist), you just don't get the feeling that the mangaka is trying to fit any of them to a certain archetype.

The ending was bittersweet and made me feel like crying :C. I've mentioned before that this manga discusses pretty mature themes, but the mangaka handles it pretty well, which is a giant plus if you ask me, since it allows for discussions and analyzing (personally, I love reflecting on series after I complete them).

Overall, if you're looking for a deep and thoughtful read, I'd recommend this!

Will definitely add Nagai-sensei to my list of mangaka to look out for!
