For Fujimiya who is a very competent guy at the company, Yuuki, a grandson of the Chairman of the Board has been his longtime rival. Yuuki bears away all girls around Fujimiya, so Fujimiya has been "unskilled at love" yet. Yuuki asks Fujimiya to take care of his "pride and joy", Shuuta Takahashi during Yuuki's overseas business trip of half-year. Shuuta was a playmate of Yuuki and has no experience of working at office but is very eager to become an accomplished office worker to help Yuuki. Fujimiya is moved by Shuuta's enthusiasm and teaches Shuuta personal computer after his working. Fujimiya can not help loving Shuuta when he drinks too much at the party and is looked after tenderly by Shuuta. But when Yuuki returns he is not all that happy with how the things evolved between Fujimiya and Shuuta...

Also includes a short story with the junior high school students Tamura and Mikami from Love Trivia before they become quiz game partners.

Second lead syndrome   
Rating: 7.0 / 10.0

Idk I don't like how Yuuki would treat the uke. He seems kinda pushy. Although I know it's wrong to pursue a person who's commited to another, I kinda wish that Fujimiya stole Takahashi from Yuuki. It's one of those bls (or even stories, in general) that the second lead was better than the first lead (or how it was shown). And to make matters worse, it had to be the perspective of the second lead. I usually wish that the main couple would end up together, but not on this one.

...but yeah, I think he deserves someone like Yoshida x) (I just pity Takahashi reaall bad)

The oneshot started fluff and sweet and it ended with idk annoyance. I kinda liked the seme at first but he kinda had sec with the uke without asking for permission (tho I think the uke would've been fine by it). Still, as a sign of respect, one should ask for permission before doing it.

Just like grumble cakes says, this is the first time I have ever encounter a full volume BL manga that is told from the third person's perspective who is not the main couple. It is quite interesting to read this considering its different from other BL manga. I like this manga however I wished it had been longer so that Fujimiya's new relationship can be more develop and not so tack on. Overall this manga is recommended.

Middle Ground for Nishimura-Sensei's Works   
Rating: 7.0 / 10.0

I had a bit of trouble following the story; but nothing like Darling in a Textbook. The story was okay--not riveting my interest and causing me to read slowly or repetitively--but enough of my interest was held to finish the story.

The art was clear and full of action, but Nishimura-sensei's has works that are outstanding. To me, this one fell at mediocre.

This is the first time I've read a BL story that is told from the perspective of the person who is NOT half of the main couple. This create a nice, if a little sad, bittersweet atmosphere. Fujimiya has complicated feelings towards Yuuki his rival and Shuuta, the sweet and likable guy he is supposed to take care of, but this is not a love triangle like it may sound. The fourth chapter seems tacked on as an attempt to give everyone a happy ending but I'd be lying if I said it didn't make me happy.
oh- and the oneshot is pretty darn cute. Recommended!
