My Heart, It Won’t Stop Beating

Sorry, for not having anything constructive or insightful to say, but please JUST READ THIS (preferably by buying a copy). I have read this manga 8 times (and 9 times if you include this last time) from the beginning whenever a new chapter was released. I had no idea that the 11th chapter was the last chapter, and I had already read that two times hoping there would be more. You could say that I was in hopeful-denial. So, in total I have read this 3 times in its totality, and I don’t regret a single second of it.

What was originally just a small column to fill in space for its magazine turned into a full serialisation and I cannot be more thankful for that, because this manga is honestly just so awesome I don't even know where to begin. It takes a set of stereotypical characters and puts a comedic BL spin on it without ever belittling any of them or reducing them to the butts of jokes in a comedy manga. Both main characters are so cute and pure, it's hard not to like them or root for their relationship to progress. I also really like the art style; it's definitely more old-school and seinen-like, which is what makes it even more special in a modern BL setting like this. The fact that the manga itself is aware of its oddities despite its genre provides the basis for the humour to shine and that's what makes it so enjoyable.

Young Nakamura is where it's at. He's shy, adorable, and desperately, awkwardly in love with Hirose. His attempts to become friends with his cheerful and kind classmate are sweet and just a little heart-breaking.
The '90s influenced art style flows with charm; it reminds me of Rumiko Takahashi's work (Inuyasha).

This manga is GREAT! Honestly, it's so fun and sweet. I love the art - it's not a style you commonly see in BL, but it fits so well. The plot is also lovely and the characters are funny and endearing. I'd 100% recommend this!

I'm in Love Like a Fool

This manga is just so great. The BL content is more realistic and reasonable, especially when compared to ... well, the graphic side of the spectrum.

The characters are likable. Nakamura is so quirky and relatable that I actually want him to end up with his love interest.

My favorite part of this manga though? The ART. Gods, I can't believe I love it so much. It takes a bit of a combination where it mixes a modern manga style with the older style most manga used to be illustrated with back in the day. The end result is filled with dark, vivid lines and characters with cute expressions.

All in all, I would definitely recommend this manga to someone who's wanting something light-hearted. There aren't very many chapters released but I think I just might go reread it again.
