So wonderful! One of my favorites! The only thing I disliked was spending the time on the teacher. He’s creeping on students and it’s gross. Also he’s a bit dull and I’d rather have had more time with the main two guys. They’re both fantastic!

Best slice-of-life BL manga I've ever read

In this lovely, pure and poetic manga Asumiko Nakamura perfectly depicts young love and its everyday special moments. Sweet without being cheesy and simple but definitely not boring, this manga truly is a little gem. The plot is exquisitely narrated, also thanks to a peculiar art, whose elegant lines reminded me of Art Nouveau. The main characters are likeable and well-constructed. I feel like anyone could enjoy this, not only romance or yaoi fans. If you like slice-of-life works and slow romance, though, then you will definitely love this manga.

To those asserting this is clichéd... A manga shouldn't necessarily tell extraordinary, interesting, super original things in order to be good. Heck I've read manga dealing with things unheard-of, yet they still managed to be stereotyped and overall trashy. Not original doesn't automatically mean clichéd.

Doukyuusei can be read as a stand-alone, but to fully appreciate this story you should read Sotsugyousei and O.B, its sequels, which will reveal more about the characters.

This manga is cute, sweet and all. It was cliche, true.
BUT: The mangakas herself stated it was her first BL, so she didn't mind if she used overused and cliche plots. Therefor, it earned itself a 7; it wasn't a masterpiece, but it was decent enough.

NOW, the reason why this is my favorite series is because of the sequels and side stories: They were more original, deeper and all of this was mixed with her atypical art style and warm ambience that gave a peaceful feeling.
The full series had a very bittersweet feeling.
The sequel was more realistic, and very bittersweet. It wasn't just fluff like this one, it went deeper into the thoughts and feelings of the characters.
i RECOMMEND this manga, because it is the start for everything. To be honest, I have read the sequel first, then I discovered there was a prequel. This one is how everything started. I didn't find it as touching as the sequel, it was fluffy and warm, but not as touching and emotive as this one. This is why I gave it a 7.

i believe that the author Achieved everything that is said in the afterword, for me at least. I never thought that cliché was bad if it was well made, and this story is like that, it was so simple and at the same time for the smallest yet sweetest parts my heart throbbed,really lol. Nice read

Bubbly taste of first love

A cliche but a sincere cliche. I liked everything about it! I will not disregard the fact that it felt like the story could've been more than it was, if you shake it up a bit and flesh it all out, but I feel that Nakamura-sensei made it like that so we DO actually feel the bottled-up soda pop of love that Kusakabe and Sajou-kun are experiencing.

I swear, at the end of the manga, I felt like my chest was about to burst from the acid reflex I got from reading this manga (>_<) b(>w<)d

I really like this series. Simple yet really tugs your heartstrings.
It is one of my all time favorite manga.
Like your first love.
This one of those BL manga were you love it for the story and not for the sex.
I highly recommend this.

"josei" shounen-ai

I was reluctant to read this manga because i'm a big fool and mistook her style for "Kami no Kodomo" authors' (who's works i found quite creepy ^^wink. So, when I finished reading this manga, I was gonna write smth like "this is the first work by the mangaka that i liked and liked a lot".
It's really hard to find "yaoi/shounen ai" stories to my taste. And it looks like Nakamura sensei's other works will also give me the same poignant but nice and sincere feelings.

I must have liked the story a lot

--because I rated it a 10.

I've read a fair share of shounen-ai and YAOI and I certainly do not like a manga just because of the lack of sex. I don't rate a manga higher just because it's sex-less. When I read this I just felt it was better than other BL I've read; when you read tons of BL stories, you soon realize that some are worth your time while others are garbage. In this case, I liked the simplicity of the story and I seriously got butterflies in my stomach when I read it. We all have different taste, I guess. I really love those schmoopy & light stories whereas others enjoy those deep and angsty ones.

This manga is full of cliques (and the author said so too), but it's written/drawn in a way that makes it interesting; it's pure and innocent which I enjoyed a lot. I too thought it was a realistic take on a innocent and happy love even though I know that RL is not always unicorns and rainbows, but that's okay. I certainly don't read BL to see boys falling in love with straight boys and then getting their heart broken.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion that's why everyone's ratings is different. If you don't understand why the ratings are high, it's because everyone's taste is different. Just for the people who are thinking 'Wtf? I don't understand what's with all these high ratings?!' smile

I actually really love this story, it has something unique to it, I don't really think it's THAT cliche. XD In my opinion, there's this development that occurs between these two. All the characters are very likeable. I love Hara sensei's unrequited love, it made me sad, but that is sort of remedied in the spin-off. Anyways, Nakamura Asumiko is a great BL mangaka/author. I enjoy all her other non-BL stories as well. smile
