Simple yet very touching
This was the first work that i've read of Nakamura-sensei, and it's my favorite BL. The time I read the first chapter, i knew from the cover it wouldn't be my style of art. However I was still drawn into it at first glance. Doukyuusei is a work which made me feel like "first love" isn't so cliche as it is in many other manga. It's pure, sweet, and yet very realistic at the same time. One of the thing that drawn me into this is the developments which the characters shows, it's very cute, and adorable. Their feelings are also very re-latable. The art to add, it's just.... simply beautiful. What more, the kissing scenes makes me heat up .

Innocent and bittersweet love
This is completely to my taste. It has a wonderful sense of humor with beautiful art and the love is so innocent and bittersweet. All the characters feel so life-like and lovable.
The way Nakamura Asumiko descirbes it herself is the perfect way: "I wanted to really go back to basics and write a story that is so pure and innocent and as slow and vexing as it can be."
I am completely in love with this manga - by far my favorite BL manga out there.
The art is just so unique and interesting that I can't help but fall for it, and I love the character's dynamic.
I think what really draws me to this manga though, is not so much the plot (which is simple, sweet and refreshing for a BL) but the storytelling itself. The mangaka's pace, paneling and tendency toward poetic narrative completely captures the interest of the reader.
This manga is refreshing, sweet, and totally manages to express that "first love", and convey those simple yet hard to explain feelings to the reader. I highly recommend this!
This manga is one of my favorite shounen-ai's so far. A pity it isn't updated more often. The writing and art conveys such a pure love. It's very emotional, relate-able, and just a joy to read in general.
Love, love love this manga. The art is rather unique for a shounen-ai manga, but its no less pretty (: and the stories are ridiculously sweet. Trust me when I say that you'll get hooked on this~
Innocent and simple
The art really matches this sort of plot: both very simplistic. You simply have two boys that become close and fall in love. The characters are so cute in their personality too!
One boy just shouts out, surprised, "I think I have a crush on you!" It seems to childish and so innocent. And although they do mention that they are boys, they don't let it get in the way of their feelings. Both characters are also pretty shy, although one does make most of the moves. I really really like it so far and art just makes it even more memorable.
as beautiful as always, in Nakamura-sensei's style. you probaly can't not find yaoi in her works (or maybe you can but i can't ) but if you want to read something warm and peaceful, go for Doukyuusei.
her art is unique, it might be a little hard to accept at first but when you get used to it you'll see nothing but good =))
only talk about Doukyuusei, yep, you might think it's just some other shounen-ai manga but no, in fact it's really deep and interesting. i've read the whole volume 1 and now dying in waiting for it.
