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.

The ultimate vanilla shonen-ai

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 ^^

The Best Shounen-ai

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*

I found this story a little boring and slow, and hard to pay attention to. It is very PG. They don't have an intimate romantic relationship. They are closer to friends, glued at the hip. They do everything together. And while I don't mind slow building romances and stories with not much happening... There needs to be strong realistic characters to pull me through. Maybe's just the large eye style. But I just don't identify with, or particularly even like any of the characters. I think it's the fact that I want the confrontation, drama, and angst to be amped up a little more, so that I can be more compelled by the characters. I find the additional focus on side characters and side stories, distracting. I also feel some of the story archs need to be condensed.

Although this manga was on standby for a while am glad is back on again and with two more groups which hopefully means faster chapters?! Well this one most be the longest shounen ai manga i have read so far and oh boy not even the raws are enough. The story is good but sometimes i just wish there was a bit more intimacy, more than a kiss between the two and more frequently but up until the end it was quite slow.....that little uke does not give in easily, at least not admitting exactly what his feelings really are but at least the epilogue chapter was quite nice.

This manga really gets on my nerves. I am seriously angry that I don't know how to describe it but this story made me feel disgusted, bored and confused. the art is not very eye catching either, same big eyes and icy fasical expressions, like statues. there is no life in these drawing and less interesting things in the story plot... I really dislike this story.
