It's one of those "I love you,sex the next second" manga. I get it that that were alreay in a relationship when his manga started but I was hoping to see more of the details in how they went to the next level. I liked the last story for some reason o

All of the stories were good. I like all of the characters, they're smart, straightforward and tender, you can easily sympathize with them. The plot is rather simple but not dumb.

I'll write some more very soon

Normally I'd say that this manga is pretty common plot-wise, and does contain rather typical fluff and plot devices, however now that I've finished reading it even I'm not sure myself why I found it cute and generally enjoyable rather than cheesy or cliched. Heh, must be because of the managaka's delivery, and the art is also quite all right as well. It somewhat helped create a soothing mood, making me more sympathetic with the characters, not to mention their designs are already easy on the eye. I do think that the stories vary in quality and some of them are better than others, but overall, objectively speaking, this manga is easy to enjoy for most readers, and personally I do like what I read.

Adorable and full of emotion!

Love the story, how it starts with the guys who somehow ended up in a relationship and their struggle of confessing and accepting feelings, dealing with each other, fear of being seen by others, ...
I love how full of emotion this is, there's really not much happening except their conversations and such, and that's enough because you get drawn in and you really can feel with the characters!
I'd love to read more of the first couple because they're great together.
The other stories are just as much worth reading.

People say it's just the same as many other mangas but I personally don't mind that (not that I can even think of one that has the same sort of plot) because stories like that, with two people just somehow ending up together and then seeing how the deal with it all, their fears and worries and finding out they actually love each other... I can never get tired of that. I'd read that over plot-less smut any day.

Recommended to anyone who wants to read something really sweet, bittersweet, sort of realistic that focuses on the relationship between the characters and does that very well.

The art is beautiful, and this mangaka has a good grasp of character. Not the best I've ever seen, but much better than the average.

I'd recommend this! I'm not normally a fan of oneshots or twoshots, but I loved all of these.

nice, but too much alike

for such short stories i unexpectedly liked most of the characters, and thought their stories were sweet, and there was decent enough development. but the stories were too much alike in their theme: easily embarassed uke thinks the seme doesn't care that much for him (despite the seme being pretty darn obvious IMO), acts distant/annoyed, which makes the seme back off, upon which the uke realises his own feelings. if that had varied a bit, i wouldn't have felt a particularly strong uke/seme dynamic because there was none of the usual stuff that goes along with that, but this stereotyping pushed it over into the area where i start to get a little irked. it was still nice that the uke had agency and made a move himself, and that there was no forcing.

the art is generally competent and pleasant, except when characters are sitting -- it seems their heads are way too small then. i'll watch for more from this mangaka; it looks promising.

Cute, but typical.

It's a quite, nicely done collection of oneshots.
I liked it, but it was just a typical "I love him, but I'm afraid he'd hate me" collection.
The art was a little awkward, but fine. Some of the the shots reminded me of saha mizu's guys. Tracing? Who knows~.~
Anyways, it was fine. Nothing over the top.

Well i accidentally found this manga because of the cover. The story was cute and heart warming. Even though the stories were short the development between the characters were not lacking. I wish it coulda been longer but it was satisfied. The art was good too, im always up for beautiful art work. Unfortunately this is the only manga KOUSAKA Akiho have, the rest are doujins and a novel.
