The style is gorgeous and the story is not the complete rehash that most school life romances are. It is not without its share of clichés, but the characters are a nicely balanced. The seme isnít overbearing, but heís not without a backbone when he thinks he can have what he wants. The uke doesnít run around oblivious, and is well-balanced combination of shy cuteness and straightforwardness. Itís short and sweet, and loaded with great scenes. Best of all, the main story doesnít lose steam after the first two chapters, so all five chapters are on the main couple and not filled with random one-shots to fill the pages.

I was shocked when reading this manga, because my expectations were already high given the fact that Tenzen Momoko is a great mangaka but damn! This is just... perfect!
I loved the characters, the tension, the passion and emotion that is in this!
The protagonist is great, has an interesting but not too exaggerated personality in which he has aspects of both, being shy and being in command, as well as a little sadistic streak which makes for an entertaining emotional rollercoaster ride together with him!
The love interest is not your typical, controlling, uncaring and cool seme, no, he is shy, easily embarrassed and eager to keep his crush a secret!
He's the kind of character who'd, out of love, would do anything for his partner, and never hurt him.
The characters in combination are just so refreshing from the usual Boys Love genre stereotypes!
I love the odd story of an uke who is strong and in command, who has power over the seme, is smart and calculating.
But this manga doesn't only have that, it also has a main couple that just loves one another... no plots, no hate and hurt going on... just love and insecurity and the worries of first love and experiences...

This manga is a great read! It's neither too fluffy-pink-cottoncandy-like BL, nor is it too dark and depressing. It feels like a positive, somewhat realistic mix! AND OH ALL THIS SEXUAL TENSION!
Read it!

there is nothing particularly new about this high school romance, which just proves that it's not WHAT, but HOW something is written that makes it interesting. i love this pairing; they're both real characters with distinctive personalities, not just cardboard cutouts slotted into the seme and uke roles. and not everything gets resolved with a mutual confession, but insecurities (not artificially created dumb misunderstandings) are still throwing up obstacles, and will continue to do so, plus their personalities provide some natural clashing. its very well paced, and wow, that kissing scene is out of this world hot. heck, public toilet sex doesn't usually turn my crank, because, well, i remember exactly how non-hot the reality of it is, but here it's very well done. goes to show that one needn't draw every vein on the dangy bits to make a sex scene steamy.

the part i can't ever really understand, and which is (distressingly) common in manga, at least shounen and shoujo, is the concept of bullying the person one loves. mashita IS mean at the start, and if i put myself in matsushima's shoes, that must have been very painful. teenage hormones and angst are bad enough on their own; i think it's some rather twisted psychology that wants to see a loved one suffer, and it always turns me off to some degree. but i can't really blame one mangaka for what's a common trope.

overall this was very satisfying and will stay with me for a while.

Who needs graphic yaoi when we have a bittersweet shonen-ai?

As I began to read it, I instantly thought "so looked much more interesting from the cover and description, but when it comes to the real thing, it's not nearly as good as I expected."

But I SO changed my mind... I ate my words for good.

Mashita is one of the ukes with the most adorable personalities I've ever seen. I love how he teases Matsushima until the point it is unbearable, how he wants to make him suffer and hurt him even if he loves him. Playing around turns me on for the manga.

And in this case, Tenzen Momoko-sensei was a genious to keep the gap between them at some parts.
It starts with that distance and pain in their relationship, so if everthing were to be okay after they confessed to each other, it would not be nearly as good.
The fact that they had problems ight after the bathroom scene totally caught my attention as to how good this manga is.
And even when everyfthing was fine again, they had bed issues.

I didn't think it was too long, with all those too many fluffy scenes and unnecessary "married life".

And even thought Matsushima is dummy and stuff, I love his atittude in bed...somethimes he gets so dominant! Like the first kissing scene. And the way he cared so much about Mashita in bed was beauftiful (and I usually don't care for that kind of stuff).
Also, isn't Mashita a little submissive in bed? Special touch, hum?

Very good.
And I normally rank it very low when I dislike the manga.

PS: From the second to the third chapter, the art got SO MUCH better!
PS 2: They're names were similar to me, so sometimes I got confused =X

I'm not sure but...I really enjoyed this manga because it was quite refreshing, but it's not a manga that I would remember quite well. The characters are really different from characters in other yaoi mangas, in other stories, you might find a totally useless uke (all he can do is be cute, or stand and look gorgeous), and a jerk for a seme. While in La Satanica, like what DB2020 had said in his/her post, the characters are well balanced. This manga was quite a refreshing read for me. =^.^=

So Pretty~ So Sweet~! (♡⌣♡ʃƪ)
It's so refreshing and really good! But this is manga that have a really good thing that i never expected before. This one is different from others, and that's why i love it! Both of the protagonist is really a good character which mean they're not an annoying character and that's why it's easy for me to read this manga. The art and the plot is adorable! I would love to recommend it! ♥

I picked this one up because the cover, title, and synopsis on the back caught my eye. When I finished it, I was glad I did. So many oneshots released lately have been dull, boring, and all basically the same. This one was not. I liked the soft quality to the art. It added to the quality of the manga. The story was simple but had a definite point. The characters played nicely off of each other. You got to know enough about them to care what happened to them. This is important if a story is going to stick with a reader. I liked Matsushima the best, probably because he is more emotional and vulnerable. Mashita has a little bit of attitude, and a touch of a mean streak. He is even a little controling, in the fact that he keeps putting on the brakes and leaving Matsushima hanging sometimes or pushing him away. The story is enjoyable, and well worth reading. Not like some of the ones you forget 3 days after reading them.

I really enjoyed this it's not your typically yaoi plot. I loved the way Matsu kept on teasing Mashita even though Matsu already knew Mashita was in love with him. It's not your typically characters in a yaoi story I liked all the characters it was a great read.

I'm highly thinking about buying the volume smile
