Description
On the first day of Shima's new job he met a man with a hangover in the elevator. That was his first meeting with his new boss, Togawa. Though Togawa seemed rude and cross, Shima was drawn to the kindness beneath his rough facade. Both men harbor a painful past but unlike Togawa, who was open with his feelings, Shima seems unable to move on.

I love this author! She's amazing! I love the characters and the story plots, I love the art and the expressions that are drawn (i cried when Shima did in this one, it really touched me) It was an awesome story and i also loved the extra story with onoda and deguchi!! It was funny and cute at the same time!

The reason i still rate it 7 is even though i thought it was awesome it was kind of predictable.. But i don't know why i loved it anyways and i love this author too!

Bitter-sweet story.
I loved it, I love pretty much all the works from this author, some of which really make me want to cry. This one
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
has a rather optimistic ending, though, sweet.

And, I really wish both of them would adopt a child, already. If Shima agreed to it, they would make such a cute family. And Tagawa would definitely make a great father. <3

This lovely story is special. Why? Because it stayed with me. The first time I read it, I did not like it but I went back again for some reason and suddenly saw the beauty. A hidden gem.

With the amount of melodrama in this manga, I didn't expect it to end so soon...it felt like there were more juice to squeeze, more dimension in a character to explore but was left unexplored after one problem-solution plot....it was good, but it would've been better if it extended more for a bit and squeezed out the remaining potential of the characters and their relationships.

It was a decent reading. Good drawings. The plot was banal, characters were boring and boring was also the manga itself, because of its slowness. It was also a little too depressing, to me. But... it wasn't horrible. Give it a try if you have free time and/or if you want to read something not too complicated.

Author takes her time to build up the characters and storyline. Although the boxing can be confusing, she makes it up with her down-to-earth speeches. Artwork takes some time to get used to but once you get familiar, she'll take u into her world. Can't get enough of Yoneda Kou's masterpiece!

.............. but the story is unbelievably perfect. Not 'Epic' as in out of the box or unique, but perfect, and so so realistic. Everything wrapped up nicely. Interesting characterizations. Love this to bits.

It was romantic and really hot. Characters are cute. I liked the extra story at the end and wished that was developed more. I'll give it a 10 because it was everything I want in a romance plus a decent ending.

i have some problems with it, especially with the amount of background angst -- that's a whole lot of drama crammed into one volume; a bit too much for me. but when i push my inner editor out of my head, it touches me anyway. especially since i actually know a person very much like shima, with a similar background and those same fears ruling his life for a long time. real people don't always react rationally (in fact i'd say rational reactions are in a small minority); they blow things out of proportion, they don't talk when they damn well should, they sabotage their own interests in futile attempts to protect themselves, they hide or don't even admit their true emotions, they push others away when they most need a connection, and more foolhardy things along the same lines. so yeah, i buy shima -- he doesn't act like i would want a sensible human being to act, but i find him completely believable. btw, i think calling him "too feminine" because he cries and angsts is quite an insult to women. call him "emo", ok? if don't you know any emo men you're not in touch with the zeitgeist.

i like tagawa a lot; he has that horrid past, but he's actually mostly conquered it, and managed to become a pretty decent guy, and i tend to prefer characters like his. he cares a lot under that easy-going exterior, and he isn't even particularly bad at showing it; it's just that shima is so closed-off he can't see it. i wanted to shake shima at that decisive point. good grief, shima, move to kyoto already! (this is one part that i totally do NOT buy; after all that heartache, what insanity is that.)

i can see why some people might take exception to the amount of melodrama, and why the story might not be for them. but i completely disagree that this is in any way a typical BL story. no, it's not the greatest thing i've ever read, but it IS considerably above average (and i've read a lot of BL; much more than i've logged here). especially the art is fabulous; it's not surface-pretty like so much BL, but it's so expressive -- it says so much that the terseness of the writing doesn't bother me, and i admire how yoneda can convey so much intricate emotion with just a few pen strokes. this mangaka will go on my watch list for that alone.

btw; i find most manga here overrated; too many people seem very quick with that 10 rating.

I'm usually not really into yaoi; I find it a little formulaic and so raunch raunch raunch. This had such a high rating, though, I decided to read it and am glad I did. When I stop and reflect on it I can't solidly put my finger on why this manga moved me so much, but I think part of the reason is how focused it is on facial expressions and body language and how the art tells the story more than the dialog.

Shima and Togawa are so cute too it makes you fall in love with them being in love :þ not to say that their "interactions" aren't super hot and steamy, but the hot scenes aren't as two-dimensional to me as many other yaoi manga I've read...I like its balance between sweet and steamy, probably cuz I like "melodramatic shoujo" haha >biggrin

I give it a 9.5 because, while I totally loved the story of Shima and Togawa, Onada's story was kinda bleh and dragged a bit.


I'll definitely be reading some more of Yoneda Kou's work!
