No drama, no twists, no character development, just stories about people falling in love way too conveniently. Sometimes rushed, love blooms without a real reason especially in some cases (take Saotome for example) which makes it unrealistic, everybody says "I love you" too easily. The best part was when all the couples gather together, but that's only because I like this kind of "reunions".

Average Stories, Great Art

The stories were average at most. There was nothing much to them, they were very superficial and shallow. Definitely not my cup of tea. However, the art is very good and needs to be acknowledged. Hence the rating.

A good love and a good laugh

Personally, I read this yaoi manga as it is: yaoi.
When writing this kind of stories, it's hard to have "good sex" plus "good love story" plus "good laughable moments" and to make it all have sense.....yet, this pulled it off.
The transitions between love scenes to passionate fornication were much more coherent and not as rushed as other mangas. The inter-linked stories also felt natural, despite seeming to be unfolded in an "all-men-are-gay-and-fine-with-it" universe and thus, giving a superficial/fake vibe to some of the relationships' development.
Still, I must say, that last chapter totally cracked me up.
I definitely recommend this as a light read for those who love an easy-developed gay love story with lots of laughter and, why not, a pretty well done sex scene.

It really wasn't that bad

This manga is actually not as bad as some of the previous comments had described. The summary for the first volume was a bit misleading. There was no revenge or at least anything i'd consider to be a revenge. I guess i could probably relate to the uke somewhat, that i'd feel a bit spiteful and would want to go to a bar to try and get the guy out of my mind. But really there was no cheating unlike how some of the other comments had described it. It was a bit annoying that the seme didn't even try to fight for their relationship and just gave up because he felt that it was the right thing to do.

The second couple did contain a little bit of cheating i suppose and the whole thing was due to stupid misunderstandings and miscommunication between the uke and the seme.

Overall the the stories are pretty cliched and there's nothing a yaoi reader would not have seen before. Nothing dramatic happens, it's just full of misunderstandings and it's not a very memorable read. The art is above average in my opinion and i do like this mangaka for some of her other works, again i have to say it's not as bad as the comments suggest considering that the overall ratings are relatively high.

mangalove: normally id agree, if the seme was a cheating jerk the uke should be man enough to move on. but that was not the case the seme was a little cold, the uke got jealous, and the uke without breaking up with the seme, instead acts like a coward and a jerk himself and cheats on the seme its really messed up, he cheats while avoiding the seme so the seme wont break up with HIM. it made me cringe that the uke cheated and whined that it wouldnt have happened if the seme told him he loves him, what? and that it takes two to make a relationship work, which is BS because why the heck didnt he talk to the seme about his feelings rather than humiliate him by kissing another guy in front of him confused ?

Agree to all the comment below
As much as I love Sakurai sensei's work and Rei's got the face i really love, however,i can only give this story 7. I really love the art. It's so pretty, but as everyone else said, the story plot isn't very good. Their love story is too shallow indeed. Just a typical boy love story.
If you didn't expect much and wanna read some manga with good art, this one will do tho smile

It gets repetitive; I think the mangaka tried too hard to make this into the "everyone with everyone" plot after the first story. Every story after that feels empty and very generic yaoi "how they got together" plots after plots after plots......

Too bad, since the mangaka is not one of the generic yaoi mangaka.
