[From Fujoshi Bitches]
Jack of all trades, Koga, was sent to Kamiyama’s house, as Kamiyama is a famous novelist who hasn’t published any new works in years. Koga’s first meeting with beautiful, but sharped-tongued and weird Kamiyama was the worst. For some reason, he got picked by him to do the job for the second time.
Koga fearfully went to his house and suddenly got asked by Kamiyama to have sex with him?!
Also includes the twisted love of Asahina, Kamiyama’s friend and editor.

Somehow i felt like the art didnt suit the story or didnt convey the feelings properly hmm. The pace of the first story was weird. I did like the second story but partly it still felt weird. But its not like the art is bad or something, there is just some weirdness there, hm.... or maybe its just me?? xD

The art is definitely not my type, and while I do find the first story in many ways quite run of the mill still there is a certain charm to it? While reading it most of my thoughts were about how the manga gave this feel as if the mangaka is just starting out (which isn't true) and will slowly polish her art, in terms of both drawing and story telling.
The second story was much better and dynamic. Tho it still left me with this nagging feeling of why did the mangaka go with such a cliched dialogue and setup when something more could have been done? For example the point of disagreement b/w the couple could have been on Asahina's reluctance to commit.
But over all the pacing is consistent in both of them, the clichedness is kept to a minimum, and there's just that is odd (in a good way) feeling of reading something that is planed. Tho, again, I believe a good manga sucks you in that the tricks/techniques used become invisible.

Thought this was another mediocre entry done a million times before but ended up pleasantly surprised by how much I actually enjoyed it. There isn't anything that particularly stands out, the plots could not be more common, yet somehow there's still this freshness and authenticity to the stories that's hard not to adore. I like the characters, both stories are okay, it's not too clichéd, and there's a bit of drama thrown in for good measure. That's decent enough in my book.
