Rio was living a perfectly normal high school life, when cool and suave transfer student Tomo-chan entered his school. Rio admires his style, and watches as Tomo easily grabs the attention of the female student body -- and of some teachers too. It's not until Tomo picks up Rio's dropped planner with a photo of his beloved idol, a male teacher, that they interact. Suspecting that Rio is gay, homophobic Tomo tells Rio he's going to "cure" him by designing a special "Homo Fixing Training Regimen".

This is stupid... stupid in a good way. Rio is from another planet and Tomo-chan... he might be as well; but they are funny enough that their stupidity is forgiven. Typical and predictable, even Haruka's story, which Ougi-sensei wanted to be suspenseful, was obvious from page 1

(at least, I was 99% he will end up with Masami from the moment they had sex and I would have been pissed if Haruka slept with both brothers anyways).
But does it matter? No! Decent humor, sweet moments and gorgeous art, I don't need more, my eyes were satisfied.

Except the first story which is quite ridiculous if you can call rape an "a okay to love type of situation" (well, always an okay thing for yaoi story), the second story, I don''t know why people think that Haruka should choose Ayumi? Like evilcleo said, what will happen if Haruka choose Ayumi? He'll never be true to Ayumi. They will not last long and I think that will even hurt Ayumi more than Haruka's from beginning keep telling Ayumi he won't pick him. And it was straight to the point. On the other hand, reading the whole thing, I feel I would be rooting for Masami. All he is wrong was his stupidity not to think he would fall in love hard with someone else and pick up marriage to help the girl (which turn to a not so good thing). I feel that Haruka's only suffering from indecisive feeling for Masami; but Haruka never really gave a go ahead for Ayumi, it's more like Ayumi force his feelings for Haruka.
Typical but good
In the beginning, I was unsure of this yaoi. The whole premise turned me off but I decided to give it a chance and I'm glad I did. It was a good, although typical, yaoi. The characters and couples were entertaining and the manga kept you interested from beginning to end. The plot is nothing new, more or less just couples with communication issues fighting and making up but the situations did tug at your heart.
I don't see why everyone else is blowing smoke about the love triangle. It was really obvious who would end up with Haruka. The minute Haruka met the chosen guy, the other guy didn't stand a chance. He never showed he had any feelings for the other guy, it was completely one-sided. Granted, the other guy was in a better life situation but if Haruka had chosen him, his heart wouldn't have been in the relationship and would have just strung the second guy around. How would have that been anymore fair? Besides, this was a love triangle. The minute you started reading it, you already have a 50% chance that you'd be left disappointed by the ending.
Seriously, what the hell?
Honestly, I will never understand women who enjoy this crap. Yaoi manga tends to suck in general when it comes to anything besides smut between a man and a weak-willed young girl in the guise of a boy (since the uke is rarely a guy psychologically but rather your typical shoujo heroine with a penis). That's why I only read it for the smut, but sometimes, the other elements of the "story" are so God-awful that I can't even do that. This manga is an example of one that really crosses the line twice.
"Gay correction" training? Really? And it's not even Jesus camp or some similar religious BS, either. The seme's goal is to "correct" the uke's gayness by screwing him and acting as if they're a couple. Because that's actually a thing that makes sense somehow, apparently. Yeah.
But what pissed me off the most wasn't that the seme was a complete and utter homophobe who wanted to "correct" the uke's gayness. No, what really got me was the uke's acceptance of the whole convoluted situation. And it wasn't the passive, "Okay, being gay is wrong and he doesn't agree with it" kind of deal. No, it was more like - are you ready for this? - "Gosh golly gee! Being gay is so bad, but thankfully, I have this wonderful guy who's going to train me to be un-gay by raping, molesting, and sexually torturing me! I thought he was a bad guy before, but wow! Now I realize that he is such a kind, generous, helpful, good person! How lucky I am to have such a nice guy helping me out by forcibly sticking his penis into my butthole every week!"
Think about that for a second. Now for a couple of minutes. Am I legitimately the only person who sees something even remotely disturbing about this? Yes? Okay, I'll shut up about it now.
And, completely disregarding this manga's "story," I didn't even find the smut to be that great. It was so typical of a yaoi manga, and the characters certainly didn't give it that much-needed extra spice. I got through the first volume of this one because... I don't even know. Bored, maybe? Honestly, I can't even give this manga a 2 for the art. If I could give it lower than a 1, I gladly would. This is seriously one of the most disgustingly homophobic pieces of trash I've ever read in my whole life. LGBT rights supporters, beware.
It was getting good...
The main story was okay. Basically an average story, though Tomo-chan was really cool. Had quite a few cliche's and over used plots. Seme's friend comes and is interested, uke's childhood friend comes back and is somewhat a threat, wanting to be together after graduation... I actually really enjoyed the story with, Joe, I believe. A little unrealistic but oh well. The last story pissed me off. Haruka went with the guy who he only slept with, opposed to the other guy who really cared about his feelings. It was way off. Would have at least liked for that kid to get a lover who will love him right. huff
A million times yes.
So the first story between Rio and Tomo is sweet great romance. Nice art work. But what makes this manga great is the side story. Haruka story made me cry. I was reading this as it was being updated so it's a bit up and down for me. I was a huge Masami fan until I found out he was married. But as much as I like Ayumi it never stuck. So glad he ended up with Masami it's a bit like jane Eyre. Hope she writes a story for Ayumi

A nice read
The first story about Tomomi and Rio was nice, your typical yaoi story, and I enjoyed reading that. Jou's story was also nice (but short. It had a lot of potential). The last one was the one that caught my attention the most and that's because it left me dissatisfied. I was also team Ayumi. But it's a rule in the yaoi world, the first guy who claims the uke is the one who ends up having him for good. And that's why Haruka chose Masami over Ayumi. That and because he was funny in the head. The last chapters were all wrong and I still can't explain why mangakas, script-writers, etc choose characters full of flaws as the lead instead of the dreamy guys. I really want to see a love-story about Ayumi and it better have a happy ending!!!
Main story>>>side story
I really enjoyed the main story between Rio and Tomo...and the pretty art..if anything else. As for the side story, which is the last volume was seriously not to my liking, especially when it got to the last two chapters.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I still can't believe Haruka chose Masami instead of Ayumi..all I can say is that it was the wrong choice in all respects. If anything, Ayumi is a far greater man than his stupid brother, and Haruka is stupid for choosing him. I could of done without this volume if this is how it was gonna end up. I had to skim through the last two chapters, cause I couldn't stand it.
Last two chapters... just no.
I was loving the love triangle and then the last two chapters just killed this story for me. I would of given a 10, but it loses 3 points for the silly, unrealistic ending. I'd still cautiously recommend it if only for the gorgeous art. Why I thought it was a bad ending in the spoiler below.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
A suicidal mental patient with little to no grip on reality suddenly is fine without supervision just because she goes to live with grandma in the country? Seriously? Nobody mentally unfit would be able to file for devorce either, her husband would of had to have done it. The hospital would never let her just wander off after she stabbed her husband, which seemed pretty obvious with even the middle brother working it out so quickly, despite the husbands statement. There would of been an investigation into such an incident and she would of been locked away for her own safety and the safety of those around her. This is just a fairy tale ending for her. And Haruka picking the selfish, mean, rapist who suddenly becomes nice, kind and wonderful at the end? When he had the younger brother waiting, kind, sweet, considerate and never forced himself on him? Maybe Haruka is just a sick masochist... who knows but by the end I didn't even care.
...the last two chapters are out and my rating went from a perfect 10 to an 8.5 I truly love the main couple, they are exceptionally hilarious and just plain cute. Haruka's story on the other hand actually made me cry out of pure anger! I am so very disappointed in sensei... was gonna give this an even lower rating but I don't wanna forget the fact that I actually liked the main story. I feel very sorry for Rio and Tomo since they will forever be lumped with Haruka and ******.
