From MangaHelpers:
17-year-old Awaya Mugi and Yasuraoka Hanabi appear to be the ideal couple. They are both pretty popular, and they seem to suit each other well. However, outsiders don't know of the secret they share. Both Mugi and Hanabi have hopeless crushes on someone else, and they are only dating each other to soothe their loneliness. Mugi is in love with Minagawa Akane, a young teacher who used to be his home tutor. Hanabi is also in love with a teacher, a young man who has been a family friend since she was little. In each other, they find a place where they can grieve for the ones they cannot have, and they share a loneliness-driven physical intimacy. Will things stay like this for them forever?

But it really just gets worse. This is the sort of story that should have ended (at least) ten chapters ago. Things move way too slowly, and the character development (if you can even call it that) is not enough to keep me reading. I really like the beginning and found it pretty realistic, insofar that people have desires that they want fulfilled, and those don't always align with traditional ideas of love and affection. But somewhere along the line, the premise of the story got lost, and the characters weren't enough to drive it forward for me.

I salute this manga for delivering something different, that being said the experience of reading this manga is like watching a hamster run in a wheel all day long.
The 2 main characters attempt to use their fake counterparts for their emotional/physical needs but this has very little effect as they continue to pine after their perspective one sided crushes.
The 2 sensei's do develop their relationship.
Our 2 main MC's also seek sexual contact with other people which only shows how weak the relationship between the 2 of them is. The fake relationship isn't enough so they need to find solace in other places as well.
Although this is a genre of work that I usually find interesting, I am finding it harder and harder to empathized with the MCs in the 3 vols released so far.
The only thing that is holding my interest is the female sensei who looking at the raws is a lot less pure and more devious than she appears. Looking forward to seeing the chapters regarding her translated.
Seeing how she behaves in the RAWS does sort of make me forgive the female mc for still pining after the male sensei and looking for support elsewhere as she can't really complain about the female sensei to the male mc as he is smitten with the female sensei. Still doesn't take away that her constant obsession towards a person will never consider you a love interest is annoying.

Keep you on edge all the time. My heart was beating so fast as the end of each chapter approached. I don't usually read seinen but this is seriously really good!! The art is clean and the girls' figure is not disproportionate (you know what I'm talking about... big boobs, hour glass figure like she hasn't eaten for months...). I can't wait for more releases. The feeling feels so real!!

Well as there are only 2 chapters translated so far, I can only evaluate the lingering potential this manga has.

It's a quite unique premise for a story these days and surprisingly well executed so far. The struggle between a platonic relationship that won't bear any fruits and a physical relationship without deeper emotions, is very well portraited in this manga and this is indeed a difficult task to make within such a story. The inner conflict of the protagonists and their day to day behaviour is very realistic IMO. In this regard, I see this manga not only as a romance story but also as a psychological one, as it deals with the emotional difficulties and sufferings of unrequired love and age gaps. Thus said, I've high hopes for the developement to come.
The Art of the manga is quite good (as also seen in yokoyari-sensei's other works). Nothing to coplain here.

In short, for those who are into seinen romance with a focus on longing and emotional conficts will have a good read here.
