From DMP:

At Wataru Fujii's high school, it's all the rage to wear paired rings with the girl you love. Wataru wears one though he is single, and one day inadvertently discovers that his ring pairs up with that of tall, handsome and smart Yuichi Kazuki, the senior classman idolized by the entire school. Though Kazuki has a reputation for being kind to all, when dealing with Wataru, he is strangely harsh. Their paired rings somehow draw them together and the two alternately clash and attract, as they must sort out their budding feelings for each other.

One of the most loveliest BL manga I ever read. It was sweet and romantic and just perfect. The art was beautiful. I loved how the art was light and wispy. They were so elegantly drawn. Hotaru sensei out did herself. Wataru and Kazukiís love story is one of the sweetest and romantic you will come across. I believe that all and BL fans must read this series. Itís not to be missed.

What more to be said?

I'm glad when I was newb in reading BL manga my lovely folks especially highlighted this series and other works by both Hotaru Odagiri and Satoru Kannagi. It's not graphic *for newbs going smooth and good is important, I think*, sweet, and eventhough the plot goes slow and it's circling in the same problems but I like the way Satoru Kannagi writes how the pair feels to each other, how the characters grow, and the developments of their relationship in the next novels.

I really hope the manga and novels will come soon in anime.

A very romantic and touching story. Beautiful art work and lovely characters. The only thing that was a disappointment was that it was only one volume. Yes, I read the novels, but I would have liked to see them become a manga too sad

If you're looking for nice refrensing shounen-ai, you've come to the wrong place. On the other hand if what you want is a boring, predictable story with boring art, this is the one. I heard a lot of people parising this manga, and I just can't see why, it so boring... -.-' There's so many better alternatives if you wan't to read a good shounen-ai.

My first BL manga and it will forever hold a place in my heart.

Of course the art is lovely even though the cover art looks... kinda lame? Now that I've read more BL manga I've come to realise there are better stories out there but there is definitely something seductive about Ring Finger that hooks you even though you didn't think you'd be into BL. Maybe it's the silly convoluted plot (which of course results in a happy ending)? Anyway, I would not hesitate to recommend it to all BL beginners.

Few gripes: Kazuki is really quite obnoxious - I can't see why Wataru would like him (especially since he was straight to start with). He gets even worse in the novels. But I forgive him since he's hot XD

This is a beautiful love story.
Very sweet and romantic. Beside the fact that Wataru and Kazuki make a very cute couple.
I recommend also everyone who read and likes the manga to go check the novels. They are just awesome!

The art is so-so for me, and part of the story makes no sense to me...but it's not the first time in a manga and certainly not the last. It's overall a sweet love story and I liked it alot, so I even got the novels. Very good reads.

I love this story, all aspects of it: the art, plot, characters.
Like others have said this story does not revolve around H(ecchi, hentai) things, but instead it has it's full attention on the struggles that the young teens go through to get together and the inner conflict they do through to finally understand that they like each othe. It is a very sweet and light story I recommend it to any BL fan especially to those who have just stared reading BL, I'm sure you will fall in love with it (and maybe like me you will buy the manga, and the novels)

Banzai Kannagi and Odagiri-sensei!

I am definitely not one to leave reviews, because I tend to read very quickly a manga, and, as soon as I'm done, start another one without wasting any time. Even my lists are never up-to-date because I just can't be bothered, you know?

But this... this was sublime, in my opinion. I had great expectations for this manga, but they were... surpassed. Beautiful: the art, the plot, the characters, everything. I like yaoi, and have read lots of it, but I found this piece special: instead of focusing mostly (as the majority of boys' love manga do) on more or less graphic scenes, it tells of a beautiful, romantic story between two young boys in love, and their difficulties in sorting out their feelings.

Truly a beautiful manga, a must read for (but not limited to) all yaoi fans.

I love this series!! I fell in love with shonen-ai because of this! Kannagi-sensei's story is so heart-warming, and Odagiri-sensei's art is absolutely gorgeous! I also have the three novels and I'm avidly anticipating the 4th and 5th!! Hope they make an anime out of this soon!
