Series of stories revolving around dormitory boys in a all-boys catholic school.

Whoa, that was a ferris wheel full of emotions. I really, really like Nekota sensei's works. She never fails to make me emotional. All the detailed expressions, the way the story reveils characters... all of it is magical. The sroty of Sasha and Forrest even made me cry!
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The whip moment, the oral, and i cred a lot on the scene in the bathroom afterwards, when Sasha was shaking and begging "no more"... Ugh the feels...

There is so much emotion shown on her character's faces I can't bear it.

9 to the story about candy wrappers because it's solid and delightfully bittersweet. The rest is really messy. ...And why everyone hits each other constantly? Violence should not be 'normal'.

Then Schio comes to sleep together with Emilio becouse of his nightmares...
Dorm-leader Shutorausu Strauss was on the night patrol and fell of the stairs...
Later Won tried to give Shio some oral but Shio collapsed...
Later Won was hit by Shio's crazy follower.

Some of the stories made me cringe while others left me feeling pretty neutral. BUT THEN THERE'S CHAPTER 2 OF VOLUME 2. Like it's all sweet and fluffy and they're fishing together and taking baths together and then end gently crumbles that light and happy feeling to bittersweet angst. That story by itself I would have given an 8.5/10, but since I'm rating this as a series it only gets a 7.

Especially the whole story in Vol. 4. That was the mostly good one! Very very good and the long one! And it's give me a big surprise on the extra that talking about Dorm president. But still good. ♥
Except the very 1st story in vol 1. About the Muslim character. I'm not talking about the religious, but how the character act on his state. But the others is very great! Thought i think i forgot the few...(eh?)
Well... I LOVE IT!!! It worth to be read! ♥ ♥ ♥

This is a hard one for me to rate. Most of the stories ARE well written and they all have wonderful, expressive art, but most of them are pretty disappointing. The religious aspect is largely silly, with priests openly discussing their romantic relationships as if it's nothing/etc. I had gone in to this in the beginning with hope for a deeper exploration of the emotional complexities of such a situation, but I gave up on that quickly. In the end, it's no different from any other series revolving around the many couples at an all boys school(which I always found silly to begin with). I did keep reading though, because the style is enjoyable and I am a fan of the mangaka.

Silly with great art

I was a bit disappointed when I read it. I usually like a lot Nekota sensei's work, but this one just doesn't got me.

First, for the series of stories, that it's lasting for 4 volumes (and it's not finished!) is a bit too long for me, as you don't follow the protagonists along the volumes. It would have been better if we were following a bunch of couples all along, but we have new couples here in each volume so we don't have the time to get really attached to them.

Plus, the environnement of an all-boys catholic school feels more like a pretext for gay love than a real element of the stories. The questions of guilt due to the religion seems to be simply put aside as if not important. So in the end, the result would have almost been the same with or without the catholic element, it's getting kinda boring. This added to the fact the stories doesn't last long, they end up lacking depth and feel a bit superficial.

But, I still rated it at 6, and I have to say that it's thanks to the great art of sensei. As she's taking her time to describe the loving scenes, we have the chance to enjoy pages of details and kisses, which is really good.

And as the characters are quite well presented, if you can overlook the environnement and the clichés situations, you might end up going from a story to another. So if you're feeling bored, and just want to enjoy some silly stories with great art, this series is for you !

This manga is really good and very interesting! I love every story Nekota-sensei shared to us in this manga. I'm just sad 'cause I can't read the manga's volume four's chapter 3 and so on 'cause it's not translated in english. Hope I can find its english translation. Over all, love it! smile

The first volume intrigues me but it wanes due to some shota elements till volume 2. If you especially like master and slave, and a bit of shota, I recommend volume 1 to 2.

It would be more enjoyable if the chara of Ginger is explored more. Thanks to the DJ but it's still short.

Volume 3 is quite good. The theme is childhood friend. It is quite romantic.
Volume 4 is my favorite and this where I say I like this manga. The sons of rival companies. If your thing is also rivalry (a product of it or some sort), and also on hate and love, I highly recommend this to you.

The art is nice definitely in specific to the eyes and lips of the semes.

ah.... yaoi, yaoi at its best. All boys school, pointless, cliche, lots of smex and so beautiful. xD

Still, I'd rather recommend you "Michiru Heya", the doujinshi made by the same author which is the spin off of Kamisama, different couple but in the very same school. Strange that it was just a doujinshi, since it has more aim, stronger characters and even longer stories lol
