From MegKF:

Kyouhei is a boxer, training to become world champ. He has a dark past. Yuuya is a chef, or was until Kyouhei got him so riled up he slugged him on the job and was fired. Minami *shivers happily* is this super-gorgeous boy who once trained with Kyouhei's, though they also have bad blood in the past, and are now rivals.

Bad end and bad main character

Well, I enjoyed the first couple but the author totally favors Minami and the final battle is a let down (the deal with the beast just came and went).
And why Minami is a good guy here? He made someone paralyze on purpose and raped someone who did nothing to him. I felt bad about his past but he did many hideous things without feeling bad about it. I rather feel disappointed here.

I didn't like the art, or the story for that much. It was humorous to me though. But that's probably because I didn't take it seriously. The title is why I decided to read. (It cracked me up, and then I decided I had to read this.) But I really despise the art, just isn't my taste. Neither do I care much for sports, that probably another contributing factor to why it was just ok. It wasn't anything spectacular, but then again, it's yaoi. I suggest it if you're bored and have nothing better to do.

I found it very funny when he randomly throws the sushi on the ground in the beginning, and then gets punched for it.

It's good, but there are some irritating parts. When the first couple get together, the way the seme deals with the uke's trauma is ridiculous.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
When the uke tells him about being raped and abused as a child, the seme decides that the answer is to have (semi-consensual?) sex. Because as long as there's love, it's not rape, and it'll be fine. Riiiiight...
Even more ridiculous, it works. It felt like the mangaka ran out of room to finish up their story and rushed an ending. The last couple felt a bit rushed as well.

Aside from that, it was a fun read, and I'd recommend it if you like Hiiro-sensei's other works.

It would have been really good except for the was really anti-climactic!! There's a huge rivalry between two boxers, but they only meet up once to have a fight. In the end, nothing is resolved except for everyone finding a lover...The story was really interesting, but the ending left a lot to be desired...

This was such a good one that i felt like "why did i not read this earlier". It had just a bit of angst but that was enough to keep me glued and i loved all the couples so it was fun. As usual sense's art was just great.
