1-5) Please Wait Tanaka who works as a station attendant has an odd aversion to being touched. When a businessman, Doujima, finds out about his affliction, he teases him about it. Though Tanaka hates the feeling of touching others, he can't help but feel strangely attracted to Doujima...
6) Think Drip Minamoto and Yoshino have been best friends for 10 years... but Yoshino feels slightly inferior, even though it seems like Minamoto is always chasing after him. While they are out drinking with a friend one night, he asks the two friends if they have had sex yet.... and that one question sends Yoshino spiraling.

Firstly, loved the art. It took me a while to read it just 'cause I kept staring.
Secondly, the story was cute. I didn't have as much trouble believing in them falling in love as others. Doujima saw Tanaka, was attracted, and approached him. I actually found it refreshing to find such an open guy whose not afraid to take the first step even if he might be shot down. My problem is that it felt like it was lacking a chapter or two. I would have liked to see more resolution rather than just the expectation of it. Plus, I wanted to see a little more from Doujima's point of view. He really tried hard at getting and keeping their relationship going, it would have been nice to see Tanaka working on it too (it kind of cut short of that).
@Kir and Dagorkitty - The last chapter was an extra about two different characters (Yoshino and Minamoto). Sure, Minamoto looks similar to Doujima, but he's not the same. My guess is that it was an earlier story done by the mangaka with a character who was later remodeled as Doujima, but that's purely my own guess.
Basically, it's the most generic plot ever in yaoi; guy meets guy, guy had trauma and resists guy, guy falls in love with guy.
I won't say it's boring, though; it's still sweet, and sinfully tasty, even though you know you've had this like, a thousand times. Like homemade chocolate chip cookies. And besides, I think this is the most explicit (scanlated) Moto Haruko work so far, thus it wins extra smut point.
Recommended for all the long-time reader of yaoi wanting to see a new spin of the old thing.
(Also, the categories; "Business Man", really? How many yaoi are going to be there with that only, not counting shoujo and josei?)

@Trifollum: That's why we have an "Advanced Search" option, so you can narrow down your search to include not just "Business Man" but also the genre and whatever other categories you want with it. Every manga with a business man should have this category tag. I don't see why this would be a problem.
As for the story, Trifollum's reaction was similar to mine. I did think their sudden inexplicable love for each other incomprehensible, though. (It was a sort of a "love at first sight" kind of deal, only not exactly.) The reader is expected to infer a lot of information from the story rather than having it told directly which was kind of interesting. (For example the exact cause of Tanaka's aversion to touch.) I recommend it, but still feel as though it's missing something that I can't quite figure out. Realism maybe? More characters? Also, not everyone who is shy or has an aversion to human contact has had something traumatic happen to them. Silly authors.
Well... What can I say?
It's a generally decent manga with a nice couple. 'Nough said. The plot? Meh, could've been better. If I had read this a couple of years ago, I would've gone like, "Kyaaa!!" But sadly, I've read too much to find much excitement in here. Still, it's good for starters and those that just want to past time.
In a nutshell, a) Love the artwork (I'm a sucker for this type of art. Yes, I'm weird) b) Good plot but could've been deeper c) Recommended for newbie fujoshis
Well, it didn't waste my time, rating or review

Gorgeous Art, Interesting Story
As many have already said: The art is gorgeous. Very expressive and delicate, I like it a lot. The pacing is also just right, which makes it so romantic. The story also has uniqueness to it because of Tanaka's haphephobia. I recommend it.

I really enjoyed this one. I didn't find it hard to believe the relationship, Doujima was a nice guy who simply persued a guy he was attracted to, lots of relationships start like that. Tananka's aversion to being touched may also have drawn him towards him, in a curiosity becomes affection kind of way. I really enjoyed the art in this, the blank and minimalistic panels went well with the quiet, unshowy nature of the story. I also enjoyed the ending, as the manga-ka alludes to what is going to happen without actually stating it. Also, the nature of tanaka's trauma was hardly played for angst, instead it was just hinted at, instead of being played on for all it's worth. So I found this one a cute, gentle and relaxing read.
I adore the art, it's so cute but in a quirky way <3 The plot wasn't outstanding, but I do like the business man theme and Tanaka's aversion to being touched made it stand out a bit more. I don't think there was anything wrong with the pacing nor do I feel like something was missing, like some people have mentioned. Doujima is attracted to Tanaka so he pursues him, then after spending time together they fall in love. Surely that's how most relationships start? I don't remember either of them claiming it was love at first sight. (Which i'm glad, it makes their relationship seem more real.) I agree with @FeyPhantom, the last chapter is about a different couple. So if anyone else is confused then don't worry, Doujima was loyal to Tanaka! Just as Minamoto is to Yoshino. This second story was really sweet, I like friends-become-lovers and the fact they'd been together for so long always chasing after each other was very cute. The nice plot, adorable characters and refreshing art of both of these stories will definitely leave you with a smile on your face ^__^

That was subtle smutty! i mean, there were many sexy and intense situations but nothing happened until the end. Normally i would hate this kind of stories but the art and the uke kept me reading forward! I would check more of this mangaka also.
the sweetness of restraint and this and that and impilications that this and that will later happen and the anticipation and the wait.. i love those things in my yaoi and of course guys in business suits! love it! but seriously this one is just so cute! and the height! so moe
This manga had a nice flow to it and i liked seeing the development in their relationship from two strangers to people that were able to overcome their differences and fall in love. I guess the concept of meeting new people everyday and falling in love even if you feel closed off is rather exciting to me and in my mind, these charecters were very realistic and created the perfect atmosphere for luuurve.
