Not the most interesting plot I've had in a yaoi, but I'd recommend it for the comedy alone. I had a lot of fun reading, special mention to the part where Hayakawa's parents meet Kagura and his family : Pure win!

The art is so-so, but the comedy is excellent here! The way the author blends in the humor with the romance is just perfect! Although there's not much of a plot, it's still an enjoyable read.

A Feel Good, Light-Hearted Story, Well Drawn and Written

I loved it! I don't usually select light-hearted, fun stories (they are just not my preference), but every now and then one needs a break from dark, demented, dangerous and desperate. ;)

It's hard to create a BL stories that makes one laugh and at the same time love the characters and find their sex scenes riveting. This one did both and how!

Hayakawa may have made the first move ('Where did he touch you?'), but it was the indomitable, never-gives-up Kagura who made the moves just escalate and keep coming, wave after crazy happy wave. I like how Kagura, although silly, did have a serious side (when he was broken-hearted about failing at the aunt's inn.) Kagura is over-the-top! (I wonder where he learned that?!) He knows how to enjoy money, but he never forgets where money falls on the scale of importance. And Hayakawa was such a solid, steady, strong seme.

Such a seductress in chapter 2! ('It's silk." Place H's hand on ass. "Feels good, right?" Hee!) The final chapter was just so sweet with the discussion about photo vs real person.

All the secondary characters interact hilariously. Their expressive faces and actions. (K's 'thugs' throwing H's parents in the car. K's mom thanking H's mom for her 'gift' and then wondering what it is.)

Read this and feel good.

Well... it's saving grace is it can be really funny at times.. but on the whole, there isn't much of a story to think of and the storyline IS rather lame... I do find the uke rather a pain in the ass actually...

I was unimpressed by the art and a bit hesitant to read because the description didn't sound like anything special either, but I'm really glad I did. ^_^ The story was super funny, and really really cute! I just loved Naoto, and his parents too! They were such a hilarious family. And the last page of the manga, the ending of the story, was probably my all-time favorite, even being as simple as it was. I would suggest this to anyone who wants a cute, super funny read!

This was so funny! Tombs up for the uke! Instead of spending half of the manga sitting in a corner, crying and being insecure he was pushy, spoiled (in a funny way) and determinate enough to get what he wanted (the seme).
The art was better than I thought it would be after seeing the cover and some of the situations were hilarious.
To sum this up: I really liked it^^

I have to agree with the deathbypenguin. The comedy is priceless. The art was uneven and there's not much plot, but it's such a fun read.

This has very little plot, but it has some really funny moments. There's one panel that's genius.I couldn't stop laughing. (It's probably just me though. sad ) Anyway, this is an average-ish manga. (maybe slightly above?) I thought the uke was annoying for the most part. (I love his parents though! lol) Also, this cover doesn't really look like the art inside. (Why'd they make it so serious? This is a comedy!)
