At first when i saw that this series was an anime (after no liking the anime very much for junjo romantica but still love the series) i wasn't going to give this a shot but after a yaoi friend recommend it to me I finally decided to give it a shot and after watching the Ova i'd die-hard and read the series up to vol 6. ch 11. I have to say that in my opinion that this is better than junjo romantica with the plot and with the characters. Again 3 couples are inttoduce like junijo romatica and are parelle with one another as you see the the main character, ristu is the son of the famous onodea company who publishs usagi-san's(from junjo romamtica) and features isaki(also in junjo romatica that similar to ristu's case in this story) The character's are simialar to junjo romtica with 2 of the ukes (Kisa shouta, and chiaki) who looks like misaki but eye color, and hair style different. Artwork like many 0ther said is better.
Contains SPOILERS
1, (Takano x ristu a story dealing with love in the past but resurfacing again after 10 years)Couple and to me is the best couple Takano x Ristu is a couple who was dating 10 years ago for a short time, and broke up due to misunderstandings by Ristu who would watch Saga-senpai (old name) in the libaray and love him for he saved a cat when no one else would dedpite no getting to know or knowing his personaity. After 10 years later Ristu mets Saga-senpai again but could not reconize who he was because his name name was changed and he had other problems. unfortunately for Saga-senpai who also didn't reconized him at first due to his last name which was “oda ristu” which was a fake last surname he added because he was embarrass to put his real name but want to stay conntect with saga-senpai, finds out who ristu is and plans to make ristu fall in love with again despite ristu. who doesn't want to fall in love with him.

2, couple Chaiki x Hatori (Cute couple dealing with childhood friends)
Chaiki is a male Author that writes shojo manga. He being a male is drawn into his childhood friends who love him but he thinks they're in love with each other. One of his childhood friends hatori is his editor but chaiki takes under a female name due to female fans being dissapoint to find out he is a male (Chaiki thinks thats) tells chaiki that he is in love with him and tells him that they can't be together anymore due to the fact that he spoils him and that he was the only reason to get close to chaiki. Chaiki however accepts his feelings but hatori only thinks that he loves him as a friend. Yuu, another childhood friend is rivals with hatori to win chaiki heart as well.
Sadly this series is in Novel only
3. couple Kisa shouta x Kou Yukina (Another cute story and couple that works on if a beautiful love such as this could hold on) Kisa shouta, who is also a editor like ristu and works with him is a 30 year 0ld man who falls in love at first sight at a man in a bookstore who is get shojo manga that he has read and loves sold to a bunch of girls that love him and find him beautiful, Kisa loves him but it's cause of his face that he loves and believes that a person like him could never be with someone like him. Later he is caught in the bookstore stalking the beautiful man again by Yokazoa (i believe) and introduces kisa to him. Kisa gives the man his card but is sad to find out that he does not reconize him for he has met him before, but finds out his name is Kou Yukina. Later another guy finds kisa, who is about to leave the store in sadness is stopped by him cause he wanted to get back together with kisa. Kisa explains that they'd on slept together once an that was it for them. The man wasn't giving up but is stopped by the beautiful man and is told that there is no fighting in the store. Kisa encounters the beautiful man again in a coffee place (i believe) and turns out that all the books that he'd been selling were from the same editor who is kisa and finds him amazing to make him cry while reading his books. Yukina also asks him for his age which surpise to find out that kisa is 30 and he is 21. He also says that he want to create a fair to sell all his books that he loved to read which kisa is surprise by his kind words and starts to blush because of it. It turns out that his words makes Kisa blush leaving Yukina seeing that and kissing him in the store.
Anime and Manga are just amazing to read or watch.
I have to say these 3 stories a nothing but comdey and hardcore happy scenes that actually leaves hardcore Yaoi fans and guys who actually don't watch yaoi wanting more.

I love how she kinda ties her mangas together. In the first chapter, page 30, Usami Akihiko's (from Junjou Romantica) name is on a list of authors! teehee... he's in first place of course! smile

If you're just starting to read yaoi, this may be your cup of tea. Sadly, it's not mine anymore.

I don't think the art is so bad as some people say, but It certainly could be better. It all looks rushed, wich is weird, since I've got the feeling that the mangaka is dragging this story.

The part about Takano and Ritsu and their previous relationship is well written in my opinion. But this manga could have ended a long time ago. I get the feeling that the author is just using random cliches and stalling. And the side stories... Oh my.nso boring. They really don't deserve so many chapters.

I just hope she finishes the manga soon and don't screw up the ending!

Despite the fact that I tried reading Junjou Romantica before and ended up dropping it, I decided to give this a go since these mangas are so popular.

My initial impression was "better than Junjou" when it comes to the story. The art in the beginning of the series is just as god-awful. It's messy, but not because it's cluttered with too much detail or anything, in fact, it's too simplistic. It looks sketchy and not fine tuned at all, at times I felt like I was reading mere storyboards. Gives me a head ache to try and decipher what's going on. The characters are ugly, which kinda hurts the hotness of the yaoi-aspect of the story. To be brutally honest, it's probably the ugliest style out of any manga I've ever bothered to read.

However, the art â thank God â does get better and cleaner in later volumes, and though the design of the character's faces stays the same, the body proportions also become a lot more realistic as the story advances. Some panels are even stylistically quite artsy! I especially liked the rain scene where Ritsu and Takano are standing in the shelter...

When it comes to the story, there is something about it that's got potential. That, I think, is the humour more than anything else. The whole setting for the story is quite light and fun, not all that deep really, but not every story has to be. The only problem is that the plot develops slowly and the cute plot devices, like the count down to when Ritsu will fall in love, become repetitive. The manga industry setting is quite intriguing at least.

As for the characters, Ritsu and Takano aren't very likeable at first and there isn't anything very original about them. Reluctant uke in denial being forced by a forceful near rapist tsundere seme. Seen it, and seen it done much better too, even as these aren't my favorite yaoi tropes... Now, Ritsu had some good qualities, he doesn't come across as completely helpless, he's hardworking and quite strong-willed. Takano improves on closer acquaintance and I felt for him since he did seem rather hurt by Ritsu's rejection and messy love life. Despite being the poster boy of the overbearing tsundere seme, he turned out to be surprisingly caring. The insight we get into his back story and the deep feelings he has for Ritsu was for me the biggest draw of this story.

Kisa and Yukina are fine too, I enjoyed the story and liked the characters. Especially the older uke/eager young seme aspect was nice. I don't really remember the other couples...

There are things I like about this story but there are some serious consent and victim blaming issues even in the later volumes. Rape≠Love!

I really love Nakamura sensei's works! and this one is really awesome! the plot is funny and cute^w^..well I think it's not fair to compare it with Junjou Romantica because they are a bit different (and I personally like both of them *_*)
in my opinion this time Nakamura was able to draw a very interesting uke(Onodera Ritsu), I like his personality >w<and I also love Takano san*ç* but I can't stand Yokozawa è_é he's hateful and nasty and he really pissed me off!!!
well I enjoyed it a lot and I'm looking forward to reading the next chapter X3

What I like:
Takano, Kisa and Yukina. More or less they are frank, mature/adult, and sincere characters. I also like the misunderstandings and unsaid things and how pretty realistic they are, at least to me. My favorite couple is Kisa+Yukina, though I had high expectations for Takano+Onodera at the beginning. But then..

What I dislike:
Grown-up Onodera! I absolutely can't stand him! If it wasn't for Takano I would've stopped reading this already and I can't help but hope that he'd get tired of that kid and his immaturity and foolishness. Uff! Okay.. Also I'm not enthusiastic about how there seems to be only homosexual or straightbutinlovewithaman male characters in the same environment either.

So first, this manga to me is awesome. The charaters and the art are all 10 for me. Even though I just wanted to focus just on Takano x Ritsu, sensei pulled me into the other realtionships also. I dont like reading a manga again because I know everything that happened already and its just weird but I
I've read this one alone like 3 times (bored) but still I was excited because Ritsu isnt your average shhy uke and Takano isnt your average demanding seme. their a funny couple RECCOMENDED >___< READ IT
