Had potential, but lost it

Premise seemed to have the potential to be more than just another smutty yaoi fic, what with a lot of focus on Shirotani's illness making it more serious than usual. But then, it overstayed its welcome. Everything in the story revolved around it too much, to the point that when it ended Shirotani barely got any character development. And when he did, it was only "the starting line" as he so kindly put it for us. Unengaging and dragged on for too long.

Not to mention, the dynamic between Shirotani and Kurose is nowhere to be found, the thread linking them mainly the ocd. By the end of it all, it wasn't even explored at all. Ending was too open ended to be satisfactory.

It's not the worst thing I've ever read, but it's certainly nothing worth noting. Mediocre at best.

I’m a bit excited for an anime and I like the couples because they’re voiced by my favorite seiyuus. I didn’t read all chapters and didn’t listen to all drama cds, but I heard how overrated it could be.
However, I want to give out huge criticisms. The characters usually have stoic expressions which bored me. The series is too f*cking long, causing longer buildups (no wonder why it may be popular). The sex scenes are rather upsetting, offensive, and anxious than erotic to see. I even hate that Kurose is shirtless while Shirotani is naked during their sex scenes bc it’s unfair and I want to see his naked legs and ass so f*cking bad! 😡
While I little agree and respect with those loving the manga without criticism, I have to side more with those arguing against it. The art is good, but the plot should’ve changed for better than this bad.

I do think that Kurose was definitely forceful to Shirotani, who has a debilitating condition. Even though the way Kurose moved the relationship was interesting, I don't think doing what he did to a molysmophobic person in reality would be a good idea.

I've bought volume 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 in English (the series is complete in Japanese, 6 volumes in total). ^^ I find their relationship wholesome but it appears some people disagree with me; I look forward to reading the final volume in December 2018.

I rather enjoy the series all the way to the end. The love the characters and the development between them and the fun mini stories that they had in the extras. I never really come to realize that the main character was forced into anything. And if you say he was then how will he ever chance. And there’s even some dialogue he says were even though it may start out like that to some people he still wants it in the end anyway. And even the other character apologizes and tells him sorry that he did this. But either way I still find the whole storyline to be great. Then six farms I think we got enough to where I I don’t need more from the story. The author did a pretty good job. And in the series. It was executed rather well. And the ending even though to some of my been a bit rushed I actually enjoyed it. And now are getting an anime for it

I am so disappointed in how Shirotani gets forced...
This is definitrly not how it works in real life. The beginning of this manga seemed like it will treat the mysophobia seriously, but then it ended up with Kurose, the understanding doctor, in using the weakness of Shirotani against him and then forcing him...

If the manga didn't take the problem seriously, then whatever Idc as long as it has smut. But the story at the beginning did decide to depict the struggles of a person that suffers from OCD, so I can't help but feel betrayed when Shirotani gets forced to do something sexual, even more so because it romanticized it without warning. I couldn't help but get pissed. It seemed like a serious story but then... it turns out to be pretty shallow, and the phobia is nothing but a plot device for the seme to be able to devour the uke. Lol.

WELL. I have always loved BDSM and smut, so a, gonna stay for that, but other than this, a really bas execution.

...I didn't think I would be able to like Shirotani. He annoyed me when I first started reading. I know he has a debilitating condition, but I just couldn't sympathize with him at first. Then I got over it and read it for the smut. Chapter 14 is still has one of the hottest bjs I've read. Anyway, the art was pretty the smut was hot and all was good until it wasn't. Towards the middle or 3/4 or the characters began looking off and the chapters got ridiculously short. People said the ending was satisfactory, but to me it left too many lose ends, the only thing that was resolved was their romance, but nothing ever came out of either Kurose or Shirotani's background and traumas. I didn't find the ending satisfying at all. In short, I think this one is a bit over rated. I enjoyed her previous stories more ( Hana no Mizo Shiru and Graineliers).

works as a smutty yaoi, but shallow

The set up of the story is pretty unique. Unfortunately the characters lack any actual personality. Therefore, while the story is somewhat interesting to follow, it's hard to actually become invested in the characters. The MC is just so weak and not really likeable. He doesn't really grow as a person beyond overcoming his illness by a bit. It's like he's DEFINED by this illness and nothing else. Everything is based and focuses on this illness. It just makes the characters so flat and boring. I really like the concept of this story. I just wish it had been explored deeper and in more meaningful ways. Additionally, all side characters are just plot devices and serve no other purpose. The art is pretty nice though, so helps somewhat.

With 8 different scanlation teams having worked on it to date, the grammar & scan quality are wildly inconsistant.

What's with "age gap" being in the tags? They're only 5 years apart.
