Aruto is happy at his job... until his ex-boyfriend Shouei shows up to fill a position. Throw in a farewell/welcome party with lots of alcohol and a jealous co-worker (Sena)... where will this night end?

2) Lip to Heart
Sena from chapter one is back with his own story. Natsuki, his previous lover says he doesn't have any feelings of love left for Sena, even though Sena still loves him. What happens when Sena wakes up to a bearded (hottie) guy kissing him?! He is Natsuki's friend Sakurai...

3) Heart to Heart
Continuation of Sena (Shougo) and Sakurai (Masayuki) from Chapter 2.

4) Changing World
These thoughts are hotter than flame, and deeper than the fallen snow.I love Ichikawa-chan As his body burned at the other's touch, the confession slipped out. Natsumi's** thoughts were always dwelling on his art teacher, Ichikawa. When he learned of Ichikawa's sudden retirement, he tried to prevent it, but... From the art room tinted by their memories, their passionate sighs begin to fall.
**Note: The scanlators have his name appear as Natsumi a couple times, and Natsuki a couple times as well. Not sure which is the correct name, but it is not the Natsuki from chap 2.

Chapters 2-3 ^_^

The first chapter was good, a bit too short and underdeveloped though, which was a shame. I was hoping to see more of their back story so Aruto's feelings would've made more sense. All I really got from the brief snippets of their previous relationship was that Shouei devoted himself to Aruto and that was somehow a problem. I assume Aruto didn't want Shouei to give up everything else just for his sake, so he tried to keep a distance. But nothing is ever really explained, so as the reader you basically have to interpret why Aruto acts in such a way. It was a good premise that needed a bit more depth to it and the characters needed to be fleshed out a bit more, but overall it was alright as it is.

The second story is definitely the best. I liked both characters and as the reviewer below also mentioned, the sexual tension between them is great! They were so cute together, definitely a perfect match <3 Oh and of course, both of them are gorgeous~

The third story left me feeling a bit confused. Because who exactly was that woman? It's never explained. I didn't understand what that whole marriage talk was about either. Was Ichikawa engaged to her or something? And why didn't he contact Natsuki when he was away? I believed he loved Natsuki right up until the last couple of pages, I just thought there had been some misunderstanding (I figured the woman was his sister or something) and expected him to tell Natsuki what was going on. Instead he just says something about marriage being for the family of the women (what?) and tells Natsuki to not get married... so what about himself, is he getting married? Damn, I'm so confused. Perhaps it was slightly mistranslated or something? If anyone can clear that up for me then I'd be grateful.

So I would've rated this 9/10 if I hadn't been left so disappointed by the third couple. But I'll definitely read this manga again, just so I can see more of Sena and Sakurai XD

Maybe it's not my fav' but it's still the 2nd best. Kujyo is the best to write slice of life stories, little sex scene much innuendo.... I just love the way there's nothing graphic but you can feel a sexual tension between the chara, and the art is really gorgeous!
