why?

Why is it taking Ritsu so long to fall in love? 90 days? I like how it's not like most yaoi that like "sex leads to love", but 365 days. Nakamura is a joker smoker. It's a good manga overall and I can see why it's some people's favorite. It's just not mine. Frankly there are way better yaoi out there. Not a lot but I've read a few.

I'm not surprised for the "high rating" this manga has... Because i enjoy it though i won't rate it just yet.
The art, i think, it kind of bothered me at first, but now in the last 2 chapters 17-18 the art seems to have "improved/changed" but i MISS the old art, strange i know, i guess i got used to it, and it grew within me that particular style.
It might be cliche but not completely and that's nice, i like the characters and their personalities (most of it at least) . But i'm actually only paying attention to Ritsu and Takano's story.

Totally overrated!

You would think working as a mangaka for 15+ years, your drawings would improve so much by now; but, nope, it's still hideous and one dimensional. Does she think people find her ugly drawings cute? Not to mention the way she draws her characters' eyes. *shudders*

Her manga are totally overrated, I can name at least ten mangaka who deserve the same level of fame and recognition than her.

So why are there so many fujoshi drawn to this kind of story? Which, by the way, is the SAME formula for all her stories. First, she makes two main characters share a past. Second, creates never-ending and repetitive conflicts between them. Third, makes the readers guess "will they won't they finally accept each other". Those who have waited for 9+ volumes to see whether the main character will crawl out of his denial and accept his feeling is ******. She won't give you the satisfaction at all! Of course, that main character will stay "strong" and vow to stay out of love; if not, the story will become boring so be sure to just drag the story for as long as possible. After all, 9 volumes is nothing, she needs to make sure it reaches 18 volumes.

I think it's disgusting to see other people assume yaoi stories are like that. No, there are a lot of mangaka who can come up with brilliant stories and draw yummy sex scenes. Especially not art that looks like it's drawn by a novice teenager.

I honestly dont think this manga is /horrible/ but its definitely not as good as it ratings chalk it up to be. (and I actually think its a whole lot better than Junjou Romantica)
The most prominent thing about series is the repetition of basically misunderstands and some smut. Really the whole plot just moves practically at a stand still because of all the unnecessary and ridiculous misunderstandings.
While I'm not too crazy over most of the sex scenes and such, I would admit that I find the humor to be good and I enjoy that aspect of it.
I say, read a little bit of it, and if it suits your taste or not, then thats what youll pretty much be getting for the rest of it.

In Denial

Some hate this manga, some love it. It depends on if you like the following: nostalgia, denial, tsundere, cliche, and one more theme I find hard to put into words. The scenarios repeat over and over with slight changes like those that hate this manga say. But the slight changes are where the story and intrigue is at for me. It's that part of the manga that, for me, paints a picture of people desperately fighting both for and against a change in themselves that they both fear and need.

If you like inner conflict and internal struggles as much as I do (I believe how you deal is a big part of what shapes you as a person), then you can get past the cliches.

HINT: if i had to take a wild guess, I'd say introverts and those that like introverts might seriously enjoy this manga. Otherwise, you could seriously hate it.

Or you could have been seriously sheltered and repressed like I was and therefore relate to a lot of throbbing "in denial" about lust heartache and mind-blows.

I swore I'd never read this as I absolutely loathe junjou romantica, but my boredom one night forced me to reconsider. I will say, it's not quite as awful as JR, but I wouldn't call it good either. It is your archetypical, tired trope laden yaoi. Most of the couples have one character who is your standard tsundere type to an annoying degree. It just drags on and never really changes. The characters have only slightly changed since chapter one, yet we've run through the same scenarios over and over again. Nevermind the fact that I'm not entirely sure why any of them are in love to begin with. I can't stand half of them. All that said, it wasn't excessively boring as the writing is not without its good points. I can't say I was pleasantly surprised though.

My third favorite yaoi.

I can say a lot of things about why I love Sekaiichi Hatsukoi, but it'll take like 3 days. It's my favorite after Junjou Romantica and Koisuru Boukun...and thats says a lot.

But seriously Onodera have to tell Takano that he loves him too! How long will it take? How many more chapters or even volumes?

Yaoi manga with a lot of potential

This is a story about first love never dies... pretty cliche. Nakamura-sensei's works tends to be repetitive but with the right elements in the chapters that will be released in the future, this can be a nice manga.

Nostalgia - The most interesting of the three since it's the main story. BUT I HATE RITSU'S NEVER-ENDING TSUNDERE-NESS. If you like someone, why do you keep on denying it?! You have sex with the guy but you can't say those three words? Takano's... well, Takano. He doesn't have a particular trait that make him stand out among the other semes of SIH and JR. It's redeeming factor is the huge hurdle of the story that's Onodera's the heir of their family business, so I there'll be a lot of angst in the future (I love angst).

Domestica - The most hated story of the bunch. I actually like Hatori when I still don't know that he's some crazy maniac that when his switch has been flipped, he'll rape the person he's been in love for a long time. And Chiaki's cute at first but he's airheaded-ness is annoying. Although if you look past through the rape thing, I think Hatori's really sweet and his serious facade goes well with Chiaki's carefree personality.

Erotica - My favorite story, just because of one reason, and one reason only. YUKINA'S SO DAMN HOT I CAN'T EVEN... yeah. Really repetitive. Kisa's gonna be insecure about their relationship blah blah blah and when the confusion has been cleared-up, they'll end up having an intense make-up sex. Then the next chapter will be the same again. But there's been a little improvement with their relationship since Kisa's been able to express his feelings, even just a little bit.

IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING BETTER, TRY WARUI KOTO SHITAI SERIES.

The story is good, the character in a normal state are interesting, but when it comes to "love" everything is the same, cliche after cliche. They are funny parts, and there is the story, i forgot their name, this guy who has a daughter and the other guy, that's a new story line. I hate Ritsu, but i understand what he is thinking, because maybe i will think the same in those situations, and Takano has a psycological problem, maybe a trauma for all the suffer, who know D:.
Kisa and Yukina is a good story but is the same as junjou egoist xDD
In genera the story goes to the same point, sometimes is funny and original but then is tha same.
I love sensei work, so if you hadnt read junjou i recommended xD if you like sensei, read it, but if you want a original story, this it isnt for you.
well yaoi manga lack of originality :/

Though I really think Ritsu is a bit too stubborn, it just adds on the funny part of the story I guess. This is the first yaoi anime/manga that I have attempted and ever since then, I am so hooked to it!! One reason why I've become kinda a yaoi fan I guess =p DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS!!
