Description
Izaki always did well in life, no matter it was school or tennis. Nothing was handed to him; all was gained through effort and diligence. Because of his straightforward nature, he tended to clash with others. That was the way he knew and he extended his belief not only to himself but also the people around him. He was satisfied with his modest achievements, that is until he met the true genius, Hakamada...

Hakamada, the quiet prodigy insomuch as things just come easily to him. He doesn't have to work or study hard, and manages to come out on top which is frustrating for Izaki who realizes he'll never reach that level no matter how hard he tries.

At the school reunion after 8 years, Izaki finds himself drinking like old friends with his self proclaimed rival. Before he can even make sense of the strange situation, he found himself in a strange bed...

I can't really pin point what I didn't like about this manga... other than that I just really couldn't feel for the characters what-so-ever. I wouldn't have cared either way if they had gotten together or not... I really didn't feel that connection between the two. And I really couldn't see 'sparks fly' when they were together. The manga just was lacking in... flavor? I guess... the best way to describe this manga is like eating sugarless chocolate ice cream... it isn't like it's crap... but it isn't anything like the real thing: yummy, creamy, sugary, fatty, chocolate ice cream... yeah... that's the only way I can describe this manga.

To be honest, I personally found it was hard to start and I had to skip roughly the first 10 pages, but once I got into the story, I couldnt stop until I finished. And like many of her other stories, I wanted more!! >_<

I love this one, it has this nice emotional battle that is well delivered. Confusion and frustration comes pouring out of Izaki has he tries to figure out his real feelings when it comes to Hakamada, but the truth was always there and finally he is able to show his emotions honestly. Hakamada is so cute and cool in how he loves Izaki, everything he does, is and was for Izaki.

I love how Hakamada seems so unemotional and unresponsive in the beginning, but then it turns out it's just 'cuz Izaki wasn't looking for his expressions. I also like how Yamakami-sensei imbued the last scene with so much emotion. I also found it funny that Izaki, who blamed Hakamada for Izaki's not being able to read his intentions, can't bring himself to tell Hakamada how he feels. The scene at the end that explains everything that went before made me laugh out loud!

the artwork's good but i do agree that the synopsis provided is a little misleading - it's more like an adult remembering his high school rivalry but falling in love with his rival... GOOD WORK! a must read...

i found that the developing feelings and interaction between Izaki and Hakamada were extremely awkward and unrealistic. it didn't feel like something that could happen in real life (i don't mean the plot, just the conversations between the characters)

The synopsis is actually a little misleading- this is not a school life story, the plot takes place 8 years after that. After a school reunion Izaki finds himself in a relationship he never agreed to with Hakamada, the guy he hated so much in highschool. Hakamada is stone faced and unresponsive like he was back in school and it's interesting to see his awkward and sincere attempts to get close to Izaki who thinks he's just being used for sex. oh, and there's some good smut in there too.
