I found this story super sad. Says deserves so much better than the crap all those idiots fling at him just because he’s gay. What’s wrong with people that they do that? But the end helped make up for some of the sadness of the rest of it.

The tanko version really fleshes out how the MC questions his sexuality a lot better than the magazine run.

The extra is sexy and super cute too!

I swear, the story is more than it appears to be. This is probably my fave by sensei. It does not involve rape, violence, and stuff like that (swear this is probably the most normal work she produced aside from her djs). Tho I do love her other works like Renai rubi, 17 maple, LTO and the works lol. This manga is so chill (comparing sensei's usual works) that this could probably pass as a Slice of Life (if not for the angsty emotions and neat art and short plot lol).

Idk I'm very conflicted whether this deserves a 10. This isn't yaoi lol. This is pretty much shounen ai lol. But I want moooore. Like, when they get down to business lol iykwm. Buuuut I also loved the fact that both of them decided to wait and give it some time lol (it shows that they respected each other). And it's soo cute if both of the main lead were awkward bae lol (reaosn y i loved this lol)

Ogeretsu Tanaka is an author I've postponed commenting about for awhile because I honestly feel she's oddly well received when the quality of her works aren't as stellar as I'd expect from someone so unanimously praised. This manga in particular is actually cute and the characters likeable, but is it deserving of the high ratings that it gets? I'd argue: not necessarily. There are still little tidbits, often awkward at times, scattered throughout the volume that I reckon could use more polish and finesse. Essentially, the art is great (though facial expressions still have a long way to go) but the story can't keep up. That is probably the general problem I have with most series coming from the mangaka.

Loved it!!! Would've been perfect of it was just a TAD longer. Just even a chapter, because c'mon, with all those nicely drawn nudes, we need some smexy sex scenes. XD Anyways I actually loved it how the straight seme reacted the way he did, because honestly it's not going to be perfect flowers and daisies all the time with these kind of romances. However, I'm glad it worked out in the end and gawsh it was cute! The author needs to draw more stories like this one.

This yaoi was stunning. This is the first I've read (I think) by this mangaka, now I'm about to go read all her others. The story starts out simple - a simple setting, two "normal" people at a club - one who works there, one who parties...and yet, it's so refreshingly original. This yaoi was breathtaking, as in, seriously, even right now, a good 20 minutes after reading this, and probably for quite a while longer, I am still catching my breath. The atmosphere was a 10/10 -- it made things very moody, confusing, hazy, and everything culminated in a beautiful peak after so much tension. The characters were just like real people to me, the main character was a great representation of a straight man falling in love with a guy for the first time, and that whole yearning about wanting to see him, wanting to see him smile or laugh, being drawn to him constantly, longing to touch him, thinking another guy is cute for the first time... all of that was so real. The author really makes you fall in love with both of the guys, especially Saya. You see the main character falling for him, beginning to have feelings for him, and the readers start falling for him too. Or at least, I was like that. You feel the character's heartbreak, their desperation, their pain, their longing for reconciliation and forgiveness. As bad as I felt for ------- for what happens, I understand that it's a lot to process, and if you're getting ahead of yourself a bit before really knowing what you're getting into, I relate to the mc. I don't think he really struggled with the idea enough, he just kinda went with the current and got lost in his emotions, and when his mind caught up to process the reality of where things were going, he couldn't proceed. It's definitely very sad and very heartbreaking though. Sexuality is just confusing.

The manga is short, but it touches on the very deep, very real feelings of hurt and bullying and homophobia, and the scars it leaves on the people.

I love the main character, yuusuke. he's relatable, more so than saya, i think, although i definitely feel for saya. his budding love for saya, starting with realizing that finally there's someone who can understand him and read him and know him. They're so hot, too. I'm not saying that in a shallow way, but I mean that the chemistry, especially the tension, between them is seriously sizzling. There were times I had to take a break and breathe and just stare at a panel.

This manga is just wonderful. Read it if you want to feel and fall in love.

Really really cute~! Second manga I'm reading today and this one was so much better! It's definitely worth your time for a quick, adorable story.
The artwork is really nice and both characters have strong enough personalities for a one volume story. Saya is incredible, I want to put him in a bottle and take him home. Yuusuke is quiet and kind, and although that is usually not my type of seme, it worked for him!
Surprisingly for a story so short, the plot is not at all what I expected! It was really unpredictable, so that I enjoyed it a lot.
I wish this was longer so they could stretch it more, make Saya's past deeper.

So great things about this manga:
- It subverts typical BL cliches, while having some cliches of its own.
- The tachi actually WAITS when the neko asks to wait! Wow!
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
More realistic reaction of a straight male's reactions when in homoerotic situations! Oh god, I feel like I've waited 50 years for this kind of more realistic reaction! ....However, it doesn't stay realistic for long, 'cause this is only one volume, after all. TT __TT

- FANTASTIC art. Incredibly sexy, and the mood is great. Things flow nicely.

Better Portrayal of Fairly Straight Man -> Liking Men Than Most

Like some other reviewers before me, I enjoyed the fact that the seme was portrayed as being hesitant, and basically scared, at the act of sex for the first time with another man especially when he'd believe he was straight up until now. I wish this was portrayed more in yaoi manga. So yeah, and 8 just for that.

I personally thought the art was only so-so.
