Not horrible, but...
Not great. It's just mediocre. It's full of the weird logic of many romance stories that drives me nuts. They don't behave like actual people - there're a lot of "misunderstandings" and out of the blue possessiveness that's supposed to be romantic (really? Calling Mako his "stuff"? Ugh.), and things along those lines. If that doesn't bother you, go ahead and read it - it's really not so bad.
But it's definitely not something I like much.
Honestly I put this off for a while. I usually have to like the description of the manga AND the cover of the work before I read it and the cover of it kinda put me off for a while. Seriously! The two characters on the cover are so similar they look like twins! And I don't really like yaois about twins.
So yeah. I read it and I loved what was on the inside. I really enjoy mangas where the uke pursues the seme. It just seems different from normal. It was funny, realistic (sorta) and didn't rush into their relationship. Which I also love.
So kudos to the mangaka for writing a very loveable manga with likeable main characters and a plot that doesn't frustrate me :3
i really didn't like this manga, like i wish i hadnt read it. The plot was weak at best, the characters were flat, there were alot of the stereotypes of this genre, and the ending was weird, in a bad way, find a better manga, like Seven Days, or Sekaiichi Hatsukoi
Sexy & Cute
At first i was confused, comparing the art inside with the cover, the main characters looked nothing similar..but then there's a drastic change within the art (compare ch.1 with the last), i'm surprised no one mentioned.. They get complete 100% makeovers.. eyes,face,hair, etc. Luckily it changed for the better though.. There were a lot of oddities like the characters fell out of character as well and the pacing &tone is inconsistent, the weird married father who pursues mako (wth?), and the whole plot rushedly basically becomes about having sex that it loses feeling within.
Anyhow, i found it pretty enjoyable due to the character development and passion (although a lot got blurred/lost near the end) and the smut =love. I wished that the author hadn't rushed it.. and it would be even better if there was actual yaoi in this kekekkeke
I give this an 8, although it had a lot more potential to be higher.
Oh also i think the description is a bit misleading as the plot focuses more on wataru coming to terms with his feelings, and mako struggling to surpress his love. The teacher instructor dude only appeared for like 5 pages for something and was not very significant in my mind.

i really loved this!! the uke is adorable and is the one pursuing the seme, which i find rare (but definitely a refreshing change!). i really fell in love the with the characters. (:
read it if you want a cute, mostly light-hearted story with romance, some humour and delightful characters. not for you if you're looking for heavy angst or deeply philosophical characters.
I was expecting something great since i read Yatteraneeze! and I did!!! The uke (mako) is great, you won't find that kind of uke a lot. Plot and Art was great as expected, there wasn't a lot of angst just humor and romance. The best part was the ending Oh SNAP!! LOL Highly recommended!!!
Great story! Sweet characters.
surprisingly sweet! normally this author would (spoiler) create an uke that is weak and indecisive, but Makoto turned out to be an intelligent boy, he had the chance to sleep with the teacher but he chose not to, this author normally does stories where at the first sign of trouble the uke goes off and sleeps with the first available guy, but Makoto was very sweet and smart and i think he truly does love Wataru, and there is finally an uke that is willing to fight back when someone tries to force him! i do agree with the other reviewer that this could have been longer, i would have liked to read more about these characters. what was with Watarus perverted father? Makoto shoulda told something to Wataru...

that the end was kinda fast... i think was perfect ^^ ok i wanted more but it doesnt mean that is not good the way it is.. they were so cute, i love this couple, the art and everything was a really nice read....
cutest story ever! it's very fluffy? if you're looking for smut, this is not the one! BUT read it anyways. very pretty drawn, especically the kissing scenes! <3 and the characters are very lovable. A shame it's only one volume.
Kiss ja Tomaranai
This was a very cute manga, though I was a little confused as to whether Makoto and Wataru were together or not. I mean, there comes a part when you know they're together, but I just couldn't figure out when it became official. Maybe I'm slow. I mean, they couldn't have been together at the beginning, right? @_@ Anyways, I loved Makoto to death. Especially when he totally switched things around on Wataru. Ha! Serves Wataru right! XD But their love was really cute. And then Kazuo! Love him, and also feel totally sorry for him since he has friends like Makoto and Wataru. ><
