The successor of the Tsujimura clinic, Motoharu has always held his childhood friend, Hazumi Akira, close to his heart. He confessed to Akira and then was rejected. Even so, he still entered the same university and same department as Akira. Ever since the confession, the two have been distancing each other, but Akira suggested that they make up and for the first time in a while, they walk home together. But on the way back, Akira suddenly kisses Motoharu, causing Motoharu's hope to grow. However, the next day, Akira tells him to “forget it”, causing Motoharu to blame Akira...

no need for sobs.

It was a fine reading, I suppose. I understand that some readers would think it pulls at one's heartstrings, and the finale was definitely worthy of a sob or two, only not from this reader right here, I'm afraid fufu. There is plenty of potential in its premise but, for the most part, it translates into some kind of "forced pent-up drama" (which sounds more like a paradox) that I'm not personally into. The characters are not fleshed out enough (or rather, in the least?) and so the angst is more stilted and imposing rather than consuming and heart-wrenching. On the other hand, because there's no real development to these characters, they feel repressed but not in a specifically artistic way. This is just my idea of course.

There are valid points to it: the premise, like I said, sounded good enough and the art is really soothing and nice, as you would expect from the author; there are sweet moments in there too, namely when Motoharu is with the little geisha and later on, when she overhears him saying he won't return to their place (she was sweet, really). I would not, however, consider it a great piece of drama, since it could have taken off to much greater lengths than those presented: tragedy crammed into three short chapters is not a good way to do tragedy (and note I use the word "crammed" as in "not adequately shaped to fit the space it is offered" haha).

But hey, maybe I was just not getting into it today. Maybe some other time I'll feel like sobbing. It was still a nice reading.

Again, this is a low-key story like it precedents, and because it's tagged as 'tragedy' I somewhat already knew of what to expect from the story. Yes it's definitely uber-sad for sure, considering how

The couple didn't end up together
and though I wouldn't describe this manga as really 'realistic', I can appreciate the fact that the scenario could totally happen in real life, much more likely so than most BL stories out there. That is quite a breath of fresh air I must admit. There could have been some more expansion or at least explanation of certain details in the middle of the manga, but overall this was quite an okay read.

This story brought me to tears. It makes you realise just how hard it was for gay people to accept themselves and live their lifes with that in mind. This is a sad story about a forbidden love that shouldn't have happened in the first place. It was very heart-breaking, I advice everyone who wants to read this, to keep some tissues nearby. It'll come in handy... T_T

Even though I kept praying for a happy ending despite the tragedy tag and the various comments about the sad ending (you never know, okay, maybe it could've turned happy just for me), this was just perfect. This might be my favorite one in the series, short as it is, and as heartbreaking as it was. The feelings invoked by the last two panel defy description. It was that second to last page that triggered the waterworks for me. Definitely something you have to experience for yourself.

Even if you're hesitant to pick up a yaoi manga, I highly recommend reading it for the romance. This is first and foremost, a story about love, and it tells it masterfully.

I feel sad and a very angry. Because. It brings you back to reality. I don't need that. I want to go into the nice and fictional story telling and the happily ever after. But The story was actually really good. And it had me in its grip. I do suggest the manga and if you like sad endings well you'll enjoy the read. But I hate to be reminded that its like that in real life. Sometimes you lose your love to life cruel and horrible game. Ah~ crap. I need to go back to lalaland.

THIS IS SO SAD! They obviously love each other so much, but because of circumstances, they couldn't be together! I didn't know this story was related to Hana no Mizo Shiro until I read the last chapter!! T-T So in the end, Motoharu continued Agriculture study huh! Did he remain single all his life? Man, I wanted to know so much!

As expected of Rihito Takarai-sensei. I have read numerous of her works and each of them are beautiful though I hate yaoi because she is an exception. Her works are beautifully drawn and sweet, as always.
I must admit that I cried a lot due to the tragical ending. It's a very touching an unexpected prequel to 'Only the Flower Knows'. Very bitter sweet yet amazing.
It's recommended.

A little sweet & sour love story. The art is beautiful, both the characters and the backgrounds. The story is really simple but pretty realistic for the times it is developed in. There are not many stories like this, where there may not be a happy ending but doesn't need to fall into angst necessarily. I recommend this for those who like a more deep story. I mean, it really made me think about the characters' situation and the choices they made at the end.
