Description
Fujishima Takara goes to high school and will start living in a dorm because he has lost all his family except for his father, who's always away for his work. Takara has to share a room with Hosaka Kiyomine. Living together isn't easy, and many rows ensue. Kiyomine is very introverted, while Takara is just the opposite. At first the two get on each other's nerves because of those differences. But things turn towards friendship and later on towards love.

So far, THIS IS THE BEST MANGA I HAVE EVER READ. it's just soooo cute!! actually, i prefer yaoi from shounen-ai. but this manga is so cute i can't help but fall in love with this manga..... this manga is progressing slowly but it's very very intresting. the art may not be as good as now, but still, it's sooooo cute!! both the art and plot!! the best ever!!!! and the length also. i hate a one-book-completed manga. i love a long term story, like this one. because BL tends to only 1 book. it's very rare to find BL/shounen-ai as long as this one. and the story is very intresting. it's not really focused on love, but it still have love in it. i love Kiyomine x Takara couple. the best ever!!

when i post this in here, the manga is long before complete.... i just can hope that it will be scanlated quickly.... i'm dying to read the next chapter....

plus, after reading this one, i automatically become Abe Miyuki-sensei's big fan. Abe Miyuki-sama is the best mangaka ever....

UNFORGETTABLE MANGA

This is the BEST shounen-ai manga that I've read; and considering that I've been reading both yaoi and BL manga for the past 10 years of my life, that's really saying a lot.

What really attracted me to read this first is it's length. Yaoi/BL manga tends to have fast progress in terms of relationships and sexual activity. And the fact that Takara and Kiyomine started in a hate relationship before becoming friends is definitely a refreshing scene to see. Often times, I find myself getting tired of the usual 'Love at First Sight' yaoi or 'Rape-Confession Scene' since, admittedly, in the real world, that is definitely difficult, even impossible, to come by. The gradual build-up of relationship is really close to reality, especially in the realm of long term 'closer than normal' friends.

Aside from the relationship category, each character's development is something to applaud for. This does not only pertain to the protagonists of the story, but to minor characters (both male x female) as well. Akari and Nanase are perfect examples.

Frankly, I hate having females in any BL/Yaoi manga since they usually give trouble to the couple and mangakas have the tendency to depict them as someone almost alien in the real world. I am a girl, myself, but I am more than 100% sure that I act nothing like those women in typical bitch/slash yaoi manga.

Anyway, back to the topic, Akari and Nanase showed a lot of growth throughout the story. And mind you, such growth do not pertain to anything romantic at all, but instead, on the essence of long-term companionship essential to all.

In fact, Komahoshi is the perfect epitome of a story that proves how extremely difficult it is to find true/real and close friends compared to lovers.

Although in Takara and Kiyomine's case, I can say, they found both in each other.

With regards to art, Abe Miyuki's sketches are poetry to the eyes. They are really beautiful. I especially love the way she draws Takara's eyes. It's very expressive and childlike; definitely perfect for the role she wishes for him to portray.

Now, I've downloaded Volume 1-26 to my laptop; and to prove how much I love this piece of work, although I understand nothing of japanese writing, I still went through the pages of Volume 12-26 patiently, and still enjoyed every bit of it.

Because like I said, even without words, the expression and emotions of the characters are enough for me to grasp the essence of the story.

Two thumbs up for Abe Miyuki.

I would love to see another installment of Komatta should she decide to make one of it (preferably about T & K's relationship combined with work. After all, Kiyomine is pursuing law. It will be interesting to see him trying to pass a resolution regarding the legalization of Homosexual Marriages.)

best shounen-ai relationship ever. It's not cliched, full-out makeout sessions- you can tell from their relationship and how they react to each other.. its just adorable (awww<3) its better than my usual BL reads smile I strongly recommend this, it can be quite moving as well.

This manga is amazing. It's so cute~ It's also fun to go back and see just how far their relationship has come. It's not full of sex and people suddenly falling in love which is just what I was looking for. I read all that is currently available in two nights and am eagerly awaiting more! Wish it was licensed, I would be buying it right now if it was.

If you're looking for a developing relationship, go find it somewhere else. These two never will develop a romantic relationship (you'll never convince Takara to allow it to happen...). If, however, you're fine with nothing but hints of shonen-ai and a suspiciously close friendship, then this manga is one of the best out there. The art does get better, but the main attraction of this series is the humour and the fleshing out of the relationship. The pace of development (...not the plot, the relationship) is extremely slow and subtle, so you don't notice it until, halfway through, you go back and read the beginning again and realize they've actually come a really long way. In fact, they're so matter-of-fact about how close they are that it takes an outsider to react to how scandalous some of their actions might seem.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Like how Takara's dad and Kiyomine have this hostile father-bf of daughter relationship...

So really, the long and short of it is, this is about as far from PWP as you could get. Solid plot (don't go expecting anything fantastical), in-depth characterization, and absolutely no overt romance.

Feliona said it best. This story may be overly dramatic at points (hey, all manga is otherwise it'd be boring), but for the most part it is a very real progression of an innocent relationship. Sure, there's no outright yaoi (sex), but that doesn't really matter because the story and characters are so wonderful and fascinating that you'll never find yourself bored enough to want some real yaoi to mix things up.

And honestly, sometimes it's just that tension in the air that keeps you going, even if in the end you REALLY wanted to see an actual hook up. Just use your imaginations. ^^

heeey I wanted a kiss at the end!!!

Ok ^^

It is a very sweet BL manga. Very long but worth reading it. I loved the slow development of the relationship between the two main characters. That was sweet and cute. And this is what makes this manga so special.
Like it was mentioned before it is shonen-ai so there are only hugs (and lots of hugs), small touching, kisses on the cheek and two kisses on the mouth. Well I don't mind that at all because the manga is focused mainly on emotions so that's good ^^ but I just wanted a small tiny kiss at the end!

Anyway, this is a really nice BL manga. A beautiful love story. I am really happy that these two main characters found each other. They are building slowly a strong relationship. It is so obvious that these two are gonna stay for a looong time together. That's so sweet ^^

For the first thing, I have to say that this story is "SHOUNEN-AI", which mean it's just a cute boy-boy love story.
If you expect deep-passioned kiss, any smex or actual sex scene, this story is not for you. But if you're looking for a story with a great plot, lovely characters, and cute relationships, this story is definitely for you:]

As a long-time yaoi consumer(lol), I can read pretty much both shonen-ai and yaoi stories(I prefer yaoi w/ smex tho^///^). For me, this is the best shonen-ai manga I've ever read. Some may say the story and the love of main couple are developing quite slow, But what I see is that their relationship is rather *REAL*. Compare to other yaoi or shonen-ai stories, the relationship of Takara and Kiyomine is realistic. Other yaoi stories often have a plot which the main characters can fall in love very easily and have sexual action very fast. But Komatta. contains many unique characters and each couple have reasons to love each other. It's like they are a couple who are just made for each other. The main couple they first being an enemy, fight, and argues all the time. But as the story develops, they adapt themselves and their relationship develops too. They become friends, fulfill each other, and in the end their relationship becomes love that is more than just a mere friendship(^ ^). In this story, it takes time and you have to take many things into consideration for a guy to come to like another guy. Other stories, I think their relationship doesn't quite complex.(If other yaoi stories are true, I think this world will be full of homo couples b/c they fall in love so easily)

Besides from the plot, the art of Abe sensei is very pretty. At first, it doesn't really what I like but as the story progress, her art becomes better and better. Especially, Takara-chan is very cute and Kiyomine becomes a really handsome guy!!!>w<

I wish my English skill is better tho, so that I can write better about how good this manga isbigrazz ..Again, this story is not for you, who likes a fast developed relationship and expect sex scenes. However, for me this manga is as real as they can be. I think that if homo couples in this real world are all like Kiyomine and Takara, I think they deserves to be homo because their relationship is reasonable and it's just to cute!=D

I still recommend you to read this story tho!!! :]

They do kiss on the lips! On valentines day in front of the whole school and the principal... but just that once. Anyway, as everyone says, this isn't smut. If that's what you look for, then turn away. But if you're looking for a funny interesting plot, you're in luck. Manga is hardly ever realistic, but I think the relationship in this is as real as it is going to get. They argue, they take their anger out on each other, they fight, and they make up. At first they were enemies, then friends (for a long time) and definitely something more towards the end. It feels like a very natural progression to me, rather than the 'love at first sight, smex, smex, smex' thing. Oh but there's that dough licking scene *ahem*
