I Usually Like Drama...

but this was just so forced. It started off good but somehow there was a lack in story development. I'm usually crazy about dramatic stories similar to The Cornered Mouse Dreams of Cheese and the like. There was drama, insecurity, jealousy in this one, but it was just too superficially handled. It would have been great to know the motives for their relationship to fall apart, for instance. Furthermore the art was mediocre at best. So nah, don't waste your time reading this one.

I didn't dislike the plot or the characters, and the art was good too, but there was still something missing. The story felt incredibly shallow and disconnected. There were a lot of scenes where we jump into the future randomly from one page to another, leaving the reader confused as to what happened in the meantime.
Also, the story progressed way too fast and anything that was put in as an obstacle was nothing major and gone again soon.
I liked the drama but it would have needed much more impact, and the characters needed more depth for it to be a really good manga.

I'd only recommend it to fans of the mangaka or people who don't mind a manga that has a shallow story flow that is easily forgotten.

Well, I kind of agree yet disagree that Baba didn't work hard to get Aoyama back. Towards the end, Baba expresses how much he regrets having hurt Aoyama in the past and would work towards loving him in a way it was only meant for him. Then, we see that he waited outside of Aoyama's place because Aoyama wouldn't answer his phone (which he clearly would've never done before). I would've liked this to be a lot longer so as to give us Baba's perspective on everything, both past and present. I think it's rather unfair how we only have Aoyama's perspective to go by. Still, it was good to know a little about their story since they left a rather strong impression in me from their appearances in Furachi na Bokura; though this was a bit disappointing, to be completely honest.

I actually come back to this sometimes and read it all over again. I don't think it's boring, quite the opposite actually. I liked Aoyama's look and personality, he looked lovely and sometimes I like that in an uke.

I agree about their facial expression being beautifully drawn and showing full emotion. Nicely done.

This story was pretty boring to me, since it didn't explain things very well. The story didn't give a lasting impact on me, and Baba won Aoyama back way too easy. I don't get why Aoyama would love Baba back so easily when Baba used to cheat on him.
Truth be told, I would've prefered it if the story just ended with the first chapter as a oneshot. Aoyama sort of annoys me as a very typical uke.

Pretty Bishounen Hair is the Highlight

I wasn't convinced of any character development on Baba's part by story's end. The whole point of a well written story is to have some sort of climax/confrontation that results in a realization or change. Seems like nothing much of anything happened other than Ryuuji is in for more heartbreak...

Story aside, Ryuuji is illustrated beautifully with wavy curls that any bishounen lover would want to stare at, imagining reaching out to grab a firm hold of...

The side story was mildly amusing, and that was the mangaka's goal - to amuse. I was mostly bored though; none of the characters really made me want to commit to them. Most of the dialogue was flat, but I did like this message said with great angst by the young uke: "A stupid brat and a great grown-up have the same feelings when they love someone."

Annoyingly, Baba looks like Satoshi and Ryuuji looks like Akigawa. Completely.

For those who didn't notice, Baba didn't "complain" because he wasn't sure of his own feelings. He experienced things that he thought were love before.That's why he didn't say anyting, it just...didn't feel right.
Anyway, that's why I have to agree with huggybear1218 about ukes' power ..they can change the world..I mean the semes xD

(some spoilers) It seemed to me like Baba didnt have to work hard at all to get Aoyama back. in the past he supposedly slept around while he was with Aoyama. And yet with very little effort a few years later they got back together. And supposedly he spent all those years thinking of Aoyama and yet he didnt seem that upset when Aoyama broke up with him in the past, he went from being a complete jerk to the perfect boyfriend in the future there was just soemthing about this story that didnt click with me.
