Pretty good for something focused on smut- although the story wasn't that great, I liked Aratsuka/Alaska's character. I also appreciated that the couple used condoms- during the close ups in one of the sex scenes, you can clearly see that Kouta has a condom on, which is rare for yaoi. Kudos to sensei for that!

So, not a bad manga overall- it was pretty standard, with cliches and stuff, but was executed fairly well... so I didn't mind too badly. It was actually quite enjoyable. And the smut was pretty good, too... so if you're into that, this is great!

Typical story where the uke tsundere fell in love with the affectionate seme without realizing it! however there were enough hot sex scenes to keep me reading this manga! Maybe it wouldnhave been more suitable that Aritsuka sensei had told Suzuki "I love you" at the end. I even liked the attemp of rape scene, it was really hotttttttt, Aritsuka was really feeling it... ahhhh.

Ok apart from the fact that the start of their relationship was pretty damned close to rape, this was a good series. I like the art quite a bit and the characters are interesting (and hey, bearded main characters, how rare are they?!). The story is a bit straight forward, nothing major going on, very easy to follow and predict. It ends on a happy note of sorts so thats nice, and the relationship is amusing because of their inherent personality clashes.

Warning: RAPE manga

The art was good the main couple interesting but the unrealistic representation and consequences of 2 rapes (the first being the 'forced seduction=rape and the second being the attempted rape by a student and friend of another character) ruined this manga.
A bit more realism and this would've been a gem.
The art is good, the story repulsive in the extreme.

It's a really fun one to read... Liked the jokes and the cracks throughout the manga...
The artwork's not too bad and the story's pretty refreshing. Although the pairing is rather predictable but it's rather nice in general.

The thing is, I think I would have enjoyed this manga more if I haven't read Sono Kuchibiru ni Yoru no Tsuyu, also by Fukai Youki. Sono Kuchibiru was pure angst and heartwrenching, and this is just light fluff. The faces, with sometimes the pained expressions, reminded me too much of Sono Kuchibiru, and it also reminded how much better Sono Kuchibiru is (to me).

If not comparing, I can say it's a decent standard BL work. If you like stupid semes paired with cold ukes and lots of hardcore smex (like me bigrazz), then this is definitely recommanded. The simple art is excellent, and I still love the way how she draws the expressions, even if they leave a bad aftertaste (like explained above).
