From DokiDoki:

When a Tokyo teenager botches a suicide attempt, he finds himself recovering in a hospital where most of the patients are more than twice his age. Rejecting his mother's visits, he spends his time counting the hours between meals and blood-tests until a run-in with another teenage patient leaves him with an unlikely new friend.

Like, really. I didn't expect that to happen, I thought this would have a happy ending. But I learned that even the darkest situation helps you become who you are, so it was a nice read.

It's definitely a touching, heartfelt story. However, I would have liked it better without the small portion of shonen-ai it actually has. The relationship was built up wonderfully up to the sudden confession, and the story didn't need that to excel. If anything, the "romance" weirds things out, so to speak. It was still a very interesting, if sad, story though...

Truly inspirational. It tells a sad, but invigorating story. The shounen ai was not very developed it was more bromance, but the kiss told otherwise. I like it. It was short, a little sad, but sweet.

Hmmmm...I question it being shounen-ai. More like a friendship two-shot for me. Felt weird 'cause there wasn't really a plot building up toward romance and suddenly out of nowhere, it was like, "I love you, gimme a kiss." O__o;;; Nevertheless, it was a really good two-shot. The building of the story and character development is good.

that was nice...made me think about some things

i found the art quite nice actually..effective and not dated at all but not any eye-candy in it which is not a bad thing...makes you concentrate more on the story and it doesn't idealize situations and tries to be a realistic and not idealistic depiction

the story is quite nice and true to talked to might touch you as well depending on your experiences in life

the good thing is that it can be appreciated and enjoyed by non-shounen-ai fans because i'm not one...i find them quite boring and repetitive...i wish i could read more by this mangaka...her works are very interesting

I believe this was a very touching story. It was well written, had beautiful art, And it wasn't too short or too long. Also I could honestly see their relationship. Sure it was all shoujo-y or smutty, but it really did work.
All in all it was a wonderful read and I would even recommend it to people who aren't necessarily shounen-ai fans.

Yes, this is a touching two-shot that involves both angst and a relationship between two boys. However, I for one could not detect any sense of "love" in their relationship. It seems very random when the phrase "I love you" is put into the open considering that friendship was the only thing that I could detect until that point. I could see no hints to such a confession, and the conversations the two main characters had did nothing to make this manga seem romantic in any sense. Even after the confession, I found it hard to detect any actual emotion in the two characters. But I must admit that the ending was touching, even if it wasn't in the romantic sense.

In short, I found that this manga was more of an attempt at a shounen-ai that failed rather miserably, instead seeming to be more of a story of an unlikely friendship. If the whole confession and whatnot was thrown out I think that the manga could've been much better.

For me, this is a favorite. Short and sweet, with two engaging characters whose lives are made so much better because they found each other. The story is sad but very uplifting.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
it's not a bad manga, and contrary to the previous reviewer i didn't find it confusing or too fast moving, but there are two drawbacks to it for me: 1) the drawing style is quite dated. and 2) because i don't expect it in my yaoi, i think others might benefit from this warning: character death.

It killed my brain cells... It wasn't bad or stupid, but I dunno, it just did... Too fast moving? Too confusing?
Up to you to decide.
