cute, heart-warming stories...<3

i recently found this mangaka's works and i have to say i really like her stories. they are sweet and the ending is always an optimistic one, in favour of the gay couple. the characters are so devoted to their other half and you can actually tell that the lovestory came as a natural result of these character's encounter, noone forced noone and they knew well what this thng (the BL romance) was all about.
But still, all these are not the reasons I'm giving this manga a 10. I fell in love with the oneshot. Th story was original,a bit rushed because this is an oneshot but still, the uke's plead to the seme to stay alive even though he shouldn't (you'll have to read the story to know why) really moved me and i was ''this" close to cry. i'm weak to these "hard-to-achieve-happiness" situations and when it turns into a happy ending, i feel glad and relieved... so worth reading it!

It's a good and sweet story, with endearing characters. I really liked the unusual beginning where you can't tell who's the seme and who's the uke, it gives a more realistic sense to the story. Besides, the art school environnement is quite original and is very enjoyable.

But the sex wasn't that good, given the story I was expecting something more romantic and I would have liked to see a Saikawa looking more like he's discovering all that. The art isn't what I usually like, but it wasn't bad, I like how sensei draw the characters' expressions, and how she can put her characters in embarrassing positions (loot at Saikawa puking *laughs*).

As for the oneshot, it was a good one. I usually don't like ghost stories, but this one was well developed. Even if Yoshinaga is falling in love a bit too easily in my opinion, he's still really cute, and I ended up wishing the best for the two of them.

So it's not so memorable, but makes you have a good time. It's a good read if you have some time to kill.

It was the first time i was really surprised about the seme, i would notmally pin him as the uke particularly given their personalities....but it worked so it was alright.
