Description
From Hoshikuzuu Scans:

A young photographer, Hirami Yuichi visits an island for an exhibition and meets the gallery's owner, Asahina Jun and fell in love at first sight. Even with a direct approach, it doesn't reach the heterosexual Asahina. However, one day when Asahina talked about his past with him, he was moved and he hugged him. Getting closer or staying away, both of them make it hard to leave. A painful love story that will squeeze your heartstrings. It is Nishi Noriko's debut piece!

This was a cute and calm yaoi which i liked a lot. I also felt like it couldve ended sooner or focus on something else then how it was in volume two, but more than that i wanted progress between the dad and his friend hehehe. Ok read for one time, i like the drawing and feel of the manga tho.

I like the story and characters and especially how genuine they come across. It's also impressive that even when this is the mangaka's first serialised work, she had no trouble with pacing and balancing the story in the span of multiple chapters. I do think volume 1 is stronger than its successor though; it could have made a nice compact little conclusion to a solid debut manga. There's something about volume 2 that just feels off to me, but maybe that's entirely the translator's fault that every nuances and details were lost in the translation process, and that there was nothing wrong with the original version after all. :/
