I don't really get the high scores, but everybody have different tastes I guess. The first story was bad, I would rate it with 1,5 or 2 and the second one with 5 or 6. nothing special really. the first one was about sexual abuse. If you think otherwise, think about it more. The second story was nice, as for the idea (don't remember to see anything like that), but it was too short and it could be done better. Good art, not great, but above average.

well, if you like shotacon you might like it.... I don't want to be that critical. there are worse yaoi out there. just not my piece of cake.

It turned out to be very interesting. At first I thought it would be the cliche kid with a bad home life falls in love with his friend that saves him from the perverted uncle, but it surprised me. I really didn't expect that to happen either or may be i'm stupid. XD
The second story was adorable and one that could truly happen, well at least happen more commonly.
The only things you would have to be warned about if you'd like to read this is that there are some moral issues to the first story but I found it was OK for me since they weren't related, but i guess you could call it rape. (I don't really think it was...)

I'm not a fan of rape. Not even when they make up and they're all in love. It's just sick and twisted. At first I thought this was a rape type manga, but my-oh-my! did this throw me off, I did NOT see that coming in the 1st story. I had kept reading b/c the art is superb, but it makes for a really interesting story. So yeah, I recommend this, for sure.

(I kinda hope I'm not the only one that didn't see that coming, otherwise I feel really dumb xD)

I had mixed feelings about the whole situation in the first story, but if you don't think about the moral aspect, the story is nice.

The second story was cute and funny! Not anything deep, though. As most yaoi stories, the plots are a bit extreme. But we also read manga to experience something that might not occur in our daily life. So... What I am trying to say is... This is a fun read, a bit illogical and not that deep. Oh, and the art is fine!

But first I wanna talk about the first story since it was really sweet and unexpected. But, I think after they declared their love for each other, Shuuji-san's characters turned a complete 180 degrees. Like, woah weren't you so distant just a couple of pages ago? What I'm trying to say is he suddenly turned into this sweet older lover after treating Reo so coldly. I wish they could've taken it step by step. Hm, how to explain it better...something like this (1, 1-2, 1-2-3) but instead we got a (1, 1-4, 4-10). Comprendre? lol I feel like I just babbled about something others wont even care about.

Well, anyway..I still liked their relationship.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Thank gosh it wasn't a love triangle.
I was afraid it would head into that direction. The situation would've been too frustrating to deal with. And knowing Reo's character he wouldn't have been able to handle it well. So I'm glad he was inlove with Shuuji-san only (I dont wanna use uncle since they're lovers). And I wouldn't have guessed
Spoiler (highlight to view)
that the guy Reo saved was Shuuji-san since he was drawn unshaved at first.
This story had a lot of suprising turn of events. Oh and the art's pretty. *sigh* It's always a pleasure to read a story where the art isn't the only appealing factor.

Now moving on to the 2nd story. I kept laughing with every page I turned, even when they were having sex. I love how the uke's concern was not being girly enough. I mean gah...I dislike shoujo looking ukes so why complain!! And the sempai was really patient ..not the cliche stern, never-know-what-he's-thinking seme. AND WHAT'S MORE...the 2nd part's is on the seme's point of view. Ahh, bless the author! I got so excited when I read the first box. And what's cuter than having your lover stress over such a trivial thing
Spoiler (highlight to view)
regarding the fact that Riku mentioned sempai's body being good and "soft". So cute. It's a fair trade. If Riku's insecure about looking more boy-like (which he shouldn't be) I think it's nice that Sempai's also insecure about becoming fat.

Btw, this was the author's first manga so i'm giving her major props. I hope they scanlate the rest of her works.

this manga is actually not all that bad... i like the twist in the main story about reo's friend and the relationship between reo and "uncle"... i actually like and enjoy the rape sences cause it shows that "unlce" was really obsessed with reo where he then explaned in ch. 2 (or was it ch.3??).... it was really cute how reo's feelings develops for "uncle". one thing that i wished was different will be for "uncle" to tell reo to stop calling him "uncle" but shuuji.

i enjoyed the second story a lot... it was SUPER cute ^^
and everyone else pretty much said what i wanted to say...

About the first story(main story), at first I thought it will be a boring story and i was thinking I will delete this manga. Judging by the cover, I thought the uke will end up with his uncle instead of his friend and his friend who love him will be pitiful. I thought its gonna be a cliche and boring story.
However, the twist in the end really surprises me and it turns out this manga is quite a good one. The second story also is cute.

Consider this is the first manga of sensei, I give it 10 smile))
Im looking forward to read more of sensei's work!

Although I do agree that some sensible ppl might not like it. I thought it was awesome.
I never thought that the boy was being abused sexually like so many other.
As I saw the boy was in love with the uncle, he just felt guilty of the relationship bc his mother abandoned him bc of it.
You can see this, when he gets jealous when seeing other girls, or when he rejects his friend.
The only thing he didnt like was when uncle had sex with him in a rough way.
Well if up to you to make your own opinion.

My rating is an average between the rating for the 1st story (3/10), and the rating for the 2nd (10/10).
The 1st story is really messed up, trying to be realistic and serious,but not believable at any point of the story, and I agree with previous comment about the lesser of two evil kind of impression. This makes neither of the two protagonists likeable at all.

On the other hand, the 2nd story is really cute and give a nice feeling, and has some comedy in it, genre that the mangaka seems to master much better than drama.

Conflicting opinions!

I agree to some extent with the previous reviewer, but for me, the back-story between the lead characters (in the main story) redeemed the older character a little. At first, I was shocked at how the story was going too, and what happens later with another character created a kind of 'let's go with the lesser of the two evils' sort of impression! I'm still conflicted about whether the relationship between the lead characters is romantic or founded on mutual despair/desperation. As a whole, though, I thought the manga was of standard quality. There were some very touching moments and the other story in the manga was also good. If you won't mind a story with grey-area moral background, give this one a try!
