the uke is dense, the seme has a dumb fetish about frilly aprons. the only interesting character is the guy who teaches the uke about housework, but we don't see enough of him. i don't feel any sexual tension here, and find the sex unerotic because i don't like either character. everything is overdramatized; people are always yelling or having their mouth open because they're SO SURPRISED. this is the sort of BL i dearly wish weren't so common; it's all about feminizing the uke and validating housework as a worthwhile feminine pursuit. *yawn*. the art is quite pleasant, but again, not special enough for me to want to look at it again. there is one good bit at the very end (before the extra), but that's too little too late.

the scanlation is stiff and way too literal for my taste, so altogether this manga goes into the "throw away" box for me.

it was cute, but i felt like Shirakawa enjoyed it more when his "teacher" felt him up, than when Yamato touched him. i mean he pushed Yamato away fast, but he just stood there when his teacher touched him, and even seemed to enjoy it... kinda disappointed by that..

i wish there was prequel dealing with the teacher or a sequel if the teacher finds love again.There could even be a spend off about the chief and his lover,also they could be a story about the teacher's son growing up and finding love.

Fun Sexual Tension!

The sexual tension is off the charts with this one! A uke who is dense, beautiful and honest-hearted? (Did I mention dense? He gives oblivious a new name!) A seme who at the same time thoughtful, yet awkward and obsessively jealous? Both of them inexperienced, unsure of their emotions and thoughts but hearts a-pounding? Hiiro-sensei's talent? Combined all this together and get ready for a read a funny, hot, and suspenseful reading experience!

The art is sweeping and pretty, but still retains an element of masculinity. The seme's hair is particularly mesmerizing with its dark, wavy fullness. The art style is a pleasant match to the story.

Two (minimal) downsides: First, the teacher's story is left as a loose end. He was such an intrinsic part of the story, with such a strong character, that it felt wrong to leave him undone. Second, there is a training scene involving onions (what a fun and pointed comparison!) that the reader never got to see put into practice. It seemed to me like the mangaka was planning on continuing with it. Perhaps she ran out of room with publishing restrictions?

Worth the read! The scanlation is excellent!

Hmm something wrong with the rating. I rate it 10 then the average decreases. This series is funny and cute. Its similar to some series i read but still great.
