I didn't expect I'd like this story so much.

There are so many comments so there's no need to make a judgement on every aspect of this story. I just want to say that I didn't expect I would like the main couple and their story that much and I didn't expect sex parts to be this good (graphic, hot and kinky). I'm surprised especially about Motoharu, cause in general I don't like loose and overly perverted characters, I mean the type who constantly think about sex and will fuck anybody as long as they look good and he's just like that. He's promiscuous, full of self-confidence, self-centered, always hitting on bishies. He drools (literally) every time he see a handsome guy. He didn't change even after he got himself a lover. At first he was annoying but gradually I started to like him, much more with every chapter cause he's funny (it's a comedy after all), loving, attentive and very dedicated to his lover. That's a character growth for ya!

The plot is deeper and better than it seems although for most part it's a baka comedy. I had a lot of fun reading this manga, give it a try.

Loved this story. The plot was fun, the characters were funny and charming. This was a series that I never took seriously but enjoy it none the same. The sequel looks beautiful and better and I can’t not wait to read more. Fun yaoi.

this is the worse. the seme is such a jerk, he almost sleep with his ex while his current partner was in the next room and I didn't even reach the third chapter though. his always like that's with his exs (even in front of his partner) I mean he gives a damn.
I was doubting to read it cause I don't trust kano sensei at all cause always sees the infidelity as something superfluous.

It was okay, but I felt like everything went to fast. More development and less sex would have been nice. Overall, art was okay, characters were actually quite likeable and the plot could have been worked on a bit more.

But definitely recommended as a I'm-bored read

To be honest, I actually didn't like it when I first started. For the first chapter, things were moving too fast for my tastes and things felt pretty shallow. I was actually gonna drop it to be honest. But as the story progressed I found myself, for the most part, liking Motoharu's and Kouta's relationship. Like they still have their problems, mostly in the trust department, but they kind of get better at it. They're working towards it.

But holy shit I love Kouta's older sibling, who is described as being a guy who's crossdressing, but I honest to God can't see her as anything other than a trans woman (so apologize my pronoun usage).

When she found out that Yuya was sleeping with Kouta, she called Yuya out on it and it was glorious. "How dare you prey on a child" and "He's serious about you! If you can't give him a future get out of here!" Like holy shit mad respect.

My two cents

So I finally purchased this manga's volume 4 as the first BL book I've ever bought, and I'm glad I did it. First of all I have to stress on the huge difference in quality between an officially translated book and some free scanlations online. Don't get me wrong, I'm all grateful for the stuff I could find on the internet, but that doesn't refute the fact that they could be horrible sometimes. For everyone who could afford to get your hands (or computer) on the legal editions of this manga and every manga out there in general, please do. You'll be amazed by the quality (I certainly was).

I've followed Punch up for quite a few years now, and looking back on it I do feel that I've enjoyed the series quite a lot. The writing isn't necessarily perfect, and the development could appear a bit iffy at times, but I actually thought the mangaka did a good job, because ultimately she had managed to capture at least this one reader and to draw me nearer to the characters who are definitely endearing and loveable.

About the events from volume 3 onwards, you know, when

Kouta lost his memory,
I don't deny that this plot device has been used rather too often, but tbh I didn't feel annoyed by it at all. What was even more important than that corny tactic was the way the author handled the resolution, and I'm absolutely in her favour on this. Please give the manga a try, and I'm sure you'll fall in love with the baka-couple in no time.

I'm totally hook with this manga.
I like Motoharu's pervertness.
I wish this manga could still continue.
One of those BL manga that truly tugs your heart string.
Very sweet moments and great intimacies.
I like the sex scenes and their funny foreplay sometimes.
It's quite addicting.
I totally recommend this.

The appearance of his ex bf, They made a fuss over it. And I can see why, this guy is clearly still into his ex. And the amnesia is ridiculous. Other than that, the story is actually better than her other work and the art is great.

The love isn't believable and it starts without basis. The seme jumps his ex-boyfriend forcefully, and the uke forgive him after two to three line of alibi and one punch. I stop reading it after the second chapter. >.<

Stunnly Amazing

Wow. This manga is just really amazing. It has one of the best slowly built up tension ever. To be honest I was kinda of bored in the first few chapters but I'm so glad that I didn't give up on the manga. It gets really good toward the middle and especially toward the end the tension build up so much that I stood up all night to finish the manga. I just love the uke! He is so cute and manly at the same time. The seme, although he's a flirt and a pervert, his love for the uke really shines through. And the sex scenes in this are just HOT!!
