1-3) I Want to be Emasculated
Salaryman Hoshina has been sharing an apartment and bed with model Atsushi. Atsushi cooks, cleans, and remembers every anniversary, but Hoshina can't figure out why they are in this "type" of relationship. When Hoshina's younger brother moves in for a while, and the boys must endure until he's gone, will Hoshina even care? Will this time of separation be the turning point in their relationship? And which boy will be the one screaming, "Once is not enough"?

4) Try to Say You Love Me
Student Hasegawa has recently started noticing how cute his friend Hashimoto is, especially around homeroom sensei Sawa. Can Hasegawa cheer Hashimoto on, or will he take his adorable classmate for himself...

5) Infection of Feeling
Medical intern Ishiguro has been sleeping with his attending Sensei Sakuma for the past year. Their intensely physical relationship is all Ishiguro ever considered, but Sakuma thinks feelings should be involved as well.

6-7) Refrain Smile, Sweet Words in the Middle of the Night
Aizawa can't seem to stop watching artist Shima, that he always sees sketching in the subway station. Shima's gentle smile he gives, even to strangers captivates Aizawa, so he finds himself standing up for the boy in an argument.

I really, genuinely enjoyed this manga much more than I thought. I get along with most of the stories, particularly the first one and the third. The main story is frankly a bit silly, adorably silly that is, and you just can't help but love it despite all else. I LOVE the chibis, they're freaking hilarious yet endearing. Aside from the precious couple which I think would please any fangirl, the mangaka's portrayals of them are also notably remarkable in the sense that she turned the stereotype into something refreshing and enchanting. It's absolutely spot on. Contrastingly, the third story doesn't have too much of a plot really, but it truly doesn't matter here when Kitagami Ren-sensei did such a tremendous job at developing the idea and the characters. I'm definitely getting more and more impressed.

Well I love puppy dog semes so the first 3 chapters were like gold for me >__< Atsushi is so freakin' cute (I especially like the "opens it".."closes it".."smells it" panels ^^ haha) and I don't think Hoshina was that bad at all. He may not have been that open about his feelings like most ukes but I think that's quite refreshing. Just because he doesn't say it, doesn't mean he doesn't show it. Like how he keeps the magazines, that's such a sweet thing to do ^__^
Definitely a nice light, fluffy read <3

This one seems to rely heavily on the mood the reader is in. I read it a few years ago, but only vaguely remembered what it was about. Seems i loved it at the time; but when i re-read it now, i had a hard time liking most of the characters. Also the main story felt unfinished somehow.

I liked this a lot, and originally I gave it an 8. But after reading the extra for the art student and the businessman couple, I upped it to a 9. I love that story and the one with the students the most. They're cute, interesting, and I love the characters.

This author is quickly becoming one of my favorites. smile

1. i know it's supposed to be humourous, but maybe i wasn't in the mood. hoshina's character mostly ruined the first story for me, because he is such a selfish jerk. ok, so atsushi is way too clingy, but that sure won't be cured by hoshina bullying him and never telling him how he feels. i don't like characters who keep all the good, caring, concerned thoughts to themselves, who seem to think praise has to be reserved for really, really special occasions, and that one never ever should tell a partner truthfully about one's positive feelings -- apparently they're supposed to guess. would hoshina have broken his brain if he were a bit more kind to atsushi on the phone? instead he barks at him to go home -- man, that ticked me off. everything always has to be on hoshina's terms. so, yeah, not really funny for me. it works a little better on the drama CD because morimori can't do wrong, and his voice imbues hoshina with more feeling than i got from the manga.

Read this when it was still a oneshot. So cute! Oh, and I love the side comics "About a Boy" that follow the main couple. So cute and funny! xD I love Shima and Aizawa, too. So cute and sweet! Even the doctor one, that started out as a PWP, I was surprised that she ended it so well.

The second story was most definitely my favorite. Yeah, you could see that misunderstanding coming from a mile away, but that didn't keep it from being completely adorable! I was disappointed that this had only one part to it. >< The other stories were good too. I liked how, in the first story, Hoshina began to realize how much he loved Atsushi only after several obstacles came into their life. He's really lucky he has someone who's so devoted to him! ^_^ The other two stories were ok, but they didn't stick out like these two did, in my opinion. Especially the one with the physician and intern. But the whole manga was still an enjoyable read. ^_^

Probably one of the best oneshots I've read.
