A MILLION OUT OF TEN

Oh, man, I've read SO many disappointing or unsatisfying mangas, lately, and this story is just. A HUGE breath of fresh air. It's super cute and sweet, and has a NON-AMBIGUOUS happy ending (thank freaking god; so tired of ambiguity) and it's completely drama free. Every single character is likable, too, which is nice.

I just want MOAR.

Excuse me while I read it all over again!

Ahh I cried while reading this ;w; Not because it's sad, just cause it's SO GODDAMN CUTE.
Probably the best Shounen-ai I have ever read tbh.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I loved how they switched the POV from Kiyo to Ino so that we could see Ino's feelings developing towards Kiyo *sighs* so adorable really.

It's the usual drama between two guys confused about their feelings for another guy, but portrayed in a very pure and sweet way xD
BL these days are just full of unnecessary angst, dark or just about the guys doing it, so this manga was very fresh, since it portrayed more about their feelings instead of their sexual desires (lol) Well that's Shounen ai for you I guess.
Anyway, TOTALLY RECOMMENDED.

Super Cute - Has sequel

It's super cute! Most romance I've seen in shoujo and BL with trains tend to be really boring and annoying, but there was a definite heart tingling moment here. I could feel true love bloom. ><

It has a sequel in the 2013 autumn Citron anthology.

I truly appreciate the mangaka showing the progression of their relationship. It was so natural and so it was awesome. The art could've been better, but I like this style of art anyway.

Very nice shounen ai

It's very nice shounen ai. Story is not forced and its simplicity plays here for its quality ^.^ There is good relationship- and feelings- development.Such a pity the feelings you got are not so much intense. It's first reason why I'm lowering the rating just a little. Another more important thing which brings this manga further away from full rate is quite confusing speech bubbles. Was it only me or one can't really recognize some times who says what? It rather disturbed me >.<
About art: Don't expect premium quality art. It's just simple but still quite nice one wink

Awesome!!! It was giggly, fluffy, cutesy, lovely all over. Gawsh gave me the butterflies man!!! Gosh this manga was just too cute. I couldn't stop smiling. It was like eating a sweet ice cream sundae with cherries and candies on top, with chocolate and caramel toppings, engulfs with syrup!!! My sweet feels man!

This is a very sweet (and short) story about two boys that fall in love. Its absolutely adorable, the art complements the tone really well, and the confession scene might be one of the cutest I've read.

-- I love this! I'm so in love with everything in this manga! The characters are adorable no doubt, even the side characters no less. They're full of personalities ranging from all kinds, which adds a lot of spices to the seemingly usual plot. The story is very sweet with just the right amount of angst, thus could manage to tug at your heartstrings while softly nurturing your soul (gosh that sounds super cliched). The pacing is virtually perfect for these types of stories, and the development is logically endearing as well.

I've noticed that the art here is somewhat strikingly similar to that of Jaryuu Dokuro and Aniya Yuiji, both of whom are among my absolute favourite mangakas and artists, which also means I'm fond of it very much. It's a shame the cover couldn't remotely express the awesomeness and complexity of the actual artwork inside the book.

By the time I finished reading, the biggest thing that popped into my head was the urge to read a sequel or something to this manga. Seriously, after that teasing extra I want to see some real 'actions' so bad, and I'm sure the mangaka is going to excel at that department *wink*

Love It
They don't talk much or let we know all of what they're thinking . Just take a deep and slow look for each movement, espression of the characters and enjoy the story.

ahhhh! this manga was SO sweet and adorable, i love how slowly and innocently everything progressed. you really feel all their insecurities and awkwardness and joy in the smallest things. also i loved the lack of any overt drama, just a simple story of a sincere friendship morphing into a first love.

the extra was such a tease. i want to see them living together and then eventually...yeah! lol. ;_;
