well, the main story and the two side stories had very different feelings. The theme for all the stories was 'unrequited love', but the main difference was

that the main story had a 'happy ending', and the two others didn't really.
To elaborate on the above spoiler, read this one:

The MCs didn't end up together in story with the uncle. They kinda ended up together in the last story - MC1 loves MC2 who loves his own brother. In the end, MC2 is kinda getting over his brother complex, and so MC1 kinda has a chance. lol....
I guess I don't really mind stories going either way, but I do prefer to have a clue of which way they're going. I much prefer when collections of stories all have a similar feeling, so I can read them based on my mood, etc. Sometimes I'm reading fluff, and then you have some gang-bang-murder-suicide story and I'm just like "WOAH outta left field there, hm?!"
The art wasn't bad. It looks pretty much exactly like the cover art, so if that's your thing, you'll like it. I guess it's not really my thing though. I think this is about a mid-range rated story for me - nothing great or memorable, but nothing terrible either I guess.

The main story is great (but it's only shonen ai! - the yaoi genre is for the oneshots). I love how it's one of those stories that focuses on how the characters deal with romantic feelings, friendships and all that and I found both characters to be very likable. I wouldn't mind reading more of them though. The oneshots were not bad but not great either; one is about a young man and his interest in his uncle and one is about a teenager who gets picked up by a guy who keeps talking about his first love....
I liked the main story. It was very good for BL - it wasn't a frantic mash of over-reaction and insanity. Instead, it was much closer to two real people. Very good characters.
I didn't like the first side story with the kid and his uncle. I'm not a fan of incest whatsoever. The second side story was good, despite the incestuous but unconsummated love.
The main story was excellent, if not leaving the reader in want of more. Minaguchi is an amazingly sweet and heart-warming character, and I became attached to him almost instantly. I love the subtle way in which the mangaka manipulates your emotions, and I found this to be true of the last story, as well. The only problem I had with this manga was the second story with Yuusuke and his uncle. Not because it's incest, but because they had sex so randomly, even by yaoi manga standards. There was no reason behind it, and the feelings Toshiya expressed afterwards made its occurrence even more confusing. There was nothing to even indicate that Yuusuke was gay or had any sort of attraction to his uncle. However, the other two stories made this manga a worthwhile read.
I loved it but I didn't like that one-shot and although there is still more andouxminaguchi in the extra chapter i would have liked to se even more...or maybe it's because i thought chapter 6 and 7 were about them.

love the main story :)
I love the main story, the relationship of the main pairing developed quite well from the beginning, not too rushed and looks like they developed feeling towards each other quite sweet.But I agree with tolly. I found that unrelated oneshot in the middle of the series is kinda annoying I absolutely love AndouX Minaguchi, and want to see more of them in the next chapter. Really looking forward for an update!
