First day I saw this, I realized its bad ratings and I was all, "This is the first time I've seen a story by her rated this negatively."

Read it in maybe 2 minutes' time, and realized that it might've been one of the better one shots I've read, by her and by other artists. I agree with lylicagalatea.
The whole story was like a mellifluous train of thought with no interruptions about love, the different types of love, the different outlooks and what really is important to the guy.
"I suppose it's a delicate thing, you can't really put it in words."

So sure they were nameless, sure it was two pages, but the meaning was left for the reader to seek after instead of being blatantly slapped onto the paper with ink. I liked that.

This is special.
It's a detail, a mere thought, a simple concept that didn't need any plot, any character nor any detailed background.
It leaves you with something to lazily ponder, and wonder. Ponder about your own concept of eros, and wonder about the two guys in the oneshot, what's their story and if they'll ever hook up.

Little things is were sexy is.

Read it on a deeper level.

The point of this very short oneshot is most likely Yoneda Kou's attempt to define 'eros' in her characters or the people around her. In this oneshot, eros is used to define sexual attraction or desire.
I can see why people would find this one confusing. There are no particular characters. What she has drawn (in my assumption) are scenes and characters that help her explain her own idea of sexual attraction or desire in (or for) a stoic character.

Eros in the Stoic isn't a bad oneshot at all. Unfortunately, the deeper meaning is something that seems to have been lost in translation.

I just didn't get it... maybe I'm just stupid or something... but yeah... nice drawings... always like Yoneda Kou's style of art... but seriously... did not get it. Period. Don't waste your time downloading this. Especially when the download time is about how much time you will spend reading it.
