i read this long ago and tbh it was good, really this is really really good, the story is fun and complicated but still fun, kinda hilarious too in some part, and sad in the other part (most of it) but but...
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
i hate the fact the uke aka Tatsuya cheating with the girl and then the girl pregnant and they are get marriage have a son life in Happy life when Junichi heart broken and get messed up and he leave his dream job because of that, i'ts realistic but- not realistic in the same place and when the girl heavily sick, she force Junichi the Seme to protect him even after Tatsuya cheatin on him with her at first place and choose that bitch because she is pregnant, and in that time Junichi already have his own life and feelings for Tatsuya already disappear, and the girl force him to comeback, that girl is shameless tbh really i hate her, i hope her get her karma..
even i hardcore fujoshi.. i hope junichi can be happy idc with boy or girls just be happy huhu 😭 and fyi Junichi not gay at first place he become gay just because Tatsuya is special for him ;((((((( and fyi Tatsuya the one who fall in love first and then Tatsuya cheatin on him and choose woman.. when Junichi is so loyal to him, like wtf that part hurt me like a truck even until now

But this ended with good ending.. still you need tissue for this manga, theres lot sad part not only in the middle and in the end huhuhuhuhu this manga touched my heart so much.. this is emotion rollercoaster to me.. this manga both Sad, Heartwarming, touched, Funny (in some part).. but mostly sad huhu andd
We can see tatsuya and junichi since they are kids to teenager and they become grandpa even great grandpa...
i feel bad for Junichi still he is good Seme and good person.. you deserve love (╥_╥)
annd idk if i want to reread this again.. this is good manga indeed the drama is good the plot too but i dont think i will reread again its so hurt huhuhu

This was terrible. But considering the age of this manga, it deserves lenience. The art was good considering the style of its era, however the values presented in this manga was... yeesh, messed up. Portraying homosexuality as if a choice, maybe if viewing the characters as bi when reading this would be less uncomfortable, but being gay just for one person is simply unreasonable. One of the characters is major trashy with fidelity, but loves is blind I guess, so all can be ignored and forgiven (gag). The presentation of pedophillia as non-traumatic seemed off-putting, but there are resilient kids, so I won't judge too much. But it was somewhat realistic with the treatment of homosexuality in conservative societies. Also, WAY too dramatic.

Please read it until the ending

I really don't know how to put it but this manga is really good yet the drama is to drama-ish to me (?)

The beginning is not really bothering me (yet if you not okay with pedophile you can skip some chapter in the desc had said) but what makes me have to give this 9 not 10 despite how i like the story is some chapters in the middle of the story is too....drama? Feels like watching a telenovela lol

Buttt for the good part:
- it potrays a realistic view of homosexuality
- likeable characters
- the ending!! I cried and make me think a lot about it, don't forget to read the author notes too!

If you want to read for a 'common yaoi manga' i'm not really recommend it since the sex part is not too necessary here 🙂 you will learn about love, friendship, and how to differentiate between it.

(For the art i don't really have a problem in here since it is a 90's yaoi manga)

I enjoyed the fact that every character had flaws and that they weren't some fictitiously perfect people. The story was good but there were some parts where the pacing sped up a bit fast for me and just flew through important time periods with little to no story. The periods that I feel are lacking a little in detail, the cross-dressing scene and the period when raising Ken comes to mind. The cross-dressing was never elaborated on and only happened for that one scene. Additionally I felt like the story wouldn't have suffered if the author had expanded on some of the difficulties of raising a child in a gay household. For the most part though I really enjoyed the story, enough to bother to write this review.

I Just Don't Get It

Honestly, I don't know if I would have been better off not reading it. Did I like it? Why, yes. Did I find it absolutely disgusting? Why, yes.
I really want to rate this a 10 and a 1 at the same time. The only decent and likable character is Junichi. Everyone else is either an absolute douche bag to Junichi or each other.

I have some very serious issues with this manga. I really do.
By end of the first volume I liked it, by the second volume I was going to stop reading because I just couldn't bear it anymore (the so, so, so twisted and wrong melodramatic cliches of the

lesbian, (which I was actually happy to see and set my heart on giving this series of 10 but then Ringo-sensei absolutely butchers it)
(women) homewrecker and youthful indiscretion), the third volume same, and I truly didn't hope anything from the fourth volume either but it got me; I cried so much And no I don't have low standards.
Honestly, I hate, dislike or am meh for every single character except for Junichi. And as crazy as it might be the 10 is for Junichi, only. I really do love him, and no matter what anyone says he really does deserve someone better than Tatsuya.
The art is to my liking and I believe fits the image of the story very nicely. The characters features change as they age which is definitely a positive point. Sometimes I even wondered if they were the same characters or not.

The only manga that made me cry this way!!!!

It's the only manga that made me cry this much.
I'm literally a mess after finishing this.....
After reading the ending I felt a sense of sadness and happiness at the same time.
Relationship are not always smooth sailing but they still find their way into their hearts and remain with each other till death do they part.
The cover may be a bit unappealing but the content is what it's great.
A truly magnificent manga.
It's like no other. I will forever treasure this in my heart......

I f*cking hate the cheating part. If the author want to create a situation where Tatsuya have to marry a woman, why she use this method!!!! You hate woman for many years and a co-worker ask something like hey wanna sex, you agree? Our pitiful Junichi...

Just awful. If you're searching for a typical clichéd and melodramatic BL without half a regard for realism look no further. Some series are so bad they're good. This one is so bad it's awful. My only conclusion from seeing all the positive reviews is that some people have really low standards.

Thanks to tha mangaka's writing ability, I HATE Tatsuya so much! What a low life human being! I cried for Jun a lot while reading this. This is what you call one bad decision makes you can change you life. Everytime I see the cover, I would remember the cheating bastard who doesn't love anyone but himself, GO DIE!. Totally agree with mtmt1311's comment above, it's worth reading if you want to get frustrated and cry.
