A collection of oneshots:

1) Touch Me Again
Seven years ago, Touda and Oshikiri crossed the friendship line once. Right after that incident however, they chose to pretend nothing had happened just so they could go on being best friends. But life is never so simple and seven years later, they begin to see the strains in their relationship show.

2) Iki wo Tomete,

3) Heavy Sugar no Iyagarase

4) Candied Lemon Peel

5) nuotatore nel cantero!

6) Stars Spica Spectre
Kiji is paid a visit by the ghost of his dead friend, Osaka. Although Kiji sees Osaka, it is only an afterimage of his friend, as Osaka's spirit is actually in Spica, a star that is 260 light years away from Earth. As a result, everything Osaka says goes through a time lapse and Kiji only hears him after the afterimage disappears. This is a sad, poignant story about two men who never found it in themselves to confess to each other until it was too late.

7) Ushi Meshi

8) touch IT again, again, again & again

9) I cannot breathe without U

10) lemon crush, bitter & sour

11) Spica no Su wa Sushouyu no Su

Great Oneshots

Both stories were written very well, well paced and they gave off a feeling of completeness. They both had a common theme of hindered communication.

The title story was refreshing and showcased the result of unexpressed feelings. But these characters do eventually succumb to their emotions and communicate their feelings to each other (albeit many years later).

However, the characters in Stars Spica Spectre were not so lucky. It had a beautifully melancholic atmosphere.

I only wish the rest of the oneshots in this volume were translated!
Also, the apartment in the title story here reminded me a lot of the apartment in the first story of Illumination.

What got me interested in this manga was the artfulness and later reading about Touda and Oshikiri I found my self relating to this story, It's sad that my ending wont be as grand as Touda and Oshikiri but I still found my self wondering what the out come could have been if we just came clean. I didn't realize there was a sec story until I went back to read the first one again(laugh out loud) ..after reading about Touda and Oshikiri I close my computer and sat in satisfaction. I didn't find the sec story to my liking maybe because the first was so lovey. Now almost 3 weeks later I can't stop my self from looking for more work by YAMASHITA Tomoko bigrazz I'll keep checking back

It's all innuendo (and that even more in the 6th story) nothing's explicit yet we feel the angst.
I agree that the feelings are better expressed by the author's words than her drawings.
It's not a must read but it s very pleasant. I think that if there was a continuation these story could be perfect...
Since the 6th story's end is a closed end, I think it'd be better if it was another ending. Cuz the idea is awesome but it doesn't leave a sense of satisfaction.

Anyway you should still give a try to the 1st story, u.u

breath-taking, heart-wrenching, and just simply a brilliant piece of work.Yamashita Tomoko is truly a breath of fresh air to the mostly generic n overdone bl world.... her art is not gorgeous, but it's coherent and brings a certain charm to the rough and manliness of the characters (an aspect lost in many bl mangas). Despite having only 2 chapters translated, both stories are in its own right unique and heart wrenching. The aspect that makes her works unique is her story-telling, that profound emotional depth in her characters' monologue that resonates their feelings with the readers'. Though I do think she's more of a novelist than she is a mangaka
