The art's okay, but the plot is like one of those really poorly written fanfics by a preteen---predictable and frankly, flat. The kind that makes you wince occasionally at the shallow plot devices and want to skip forward to the end just to confirm that yeah, what you knew was going to happen, happened.

I was annoyed with the first story because Yuuma cheated more than once and then basically told his partner "i only did it because you wouldn't have sex with me," and never apologized. And then he went off to America for half a year. I'm sure he stayed faithful.

Side story!

Okay, I've gotta admit that i love the side story more than the first story.
It was dark and seems a bit confusing but yet the ending was quite touching.
The main story wasn't that nice and it's just something that you wished you could read and skip at the same time. Dx

Better than I expected!

I really liked it, not only the main story but the one-shot as well.

Masaya was a little whiny, but not to the point that annoyed me.
And Yuuma, although not as sadistic as I usually like, was also the nice-guy-pretending-to-be-cruel type, which I love!

When Masaya thought Yuuma hated him, it hurt so much that I couldn't even breath.
I cried ALL ALONG. I mean it. Every single page made me cry, either because it was touching or because it was sad.

The "I hate you" was cute, but when they got to that one and only "I love you", it was too beautiful.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
I really thought that it was "the last time" Masaya would hear those words from, as it sounded to me, I thought he wouldn't go back to Japan and the story would end there. Thankfully, it didn't end like that *-*

As for "White Lily", although it was kinda cliché because of the brothers part and stuff (Tateno Makoto-sensei likes that, huh?), what I have never seen before is the uke's reaction. Satomi was, not only mature, but seductive in his own way and stronger than Ryuichi as to understand their mutual feelings first and take a step forward.
The dialogs are a little confusing, and the ending did lrave me full of doubts. But I'm pretty sure it worked out =P

What I liked especially about this whole manga was the depth of the love shown.

PS: I love a couple of characters, such as Masaya's father and Midorini! So helpful, both of them!

I loved this series! One of my fave from Makoto sensei! I read to date 3 times. Beautifully done story, plot a little obvious but other then that a great read.

I didn't like this one so much. I thought the story "twists" were a little too predictable. I did like Akiko-san, though - that girl has guts(!) - and the fighting between the main boys was funny. I did like how she ended the first two chapters on a comedic note. However, I read the version with the extra of the two brothers (Water Lily), and not only was it cliche, it squicked me. I wish I'd read the version with the darker story at the end; I might have given it a higher rating.

Worth the Purchase!

The bonus story at the end is a serious, but incredible story. I would love to see a continuation of that. Or maybe the ending is what makes it so powerful - the way it hangs at a precipice of 'what to do next?!' The story line was so unusual. The antagonist was not typical for a yaoi story. Fascinating. It was more like a graphic novel of a short story that could have been written by David Klass (author of You Don't Know Me) or Chris Lynch (author of Lie No Lie). The main character was so very realistic and so very young and innocent. I wanted to love him!

The main story was also engaging. The seme was sometimes annoyingly cocksure and I wanted to see him broken a little more - a little more dependent or recognizing the importance and devotion of his little uke. He was forgiven too easily on reasons too flimsy for major transgressions. The story was excellent though and kept me up at night.

The brief glimpses of Masaya's father tickled my funny bone. He speaks of 'Romeo and Juliet' and yet he plays along with the front of the boys are 'fighting'. The humour reminded me of Until the Full Moon by MATOH Sanami.

The mangaka said in the afterward that this was her first yaoi title. She was very likable and approachable in her personal note. I found it humourous to note that her editor told her that the drawing of A. (there was a girl who played a prominent role and -surpisingly- i liked her since she knew just the things to do for our boys!) on one particular page needed to be smaller because the story is about the boys! It made me giggle.

Worth the purchase!

EDIT: The bonus story at the end that I refer to is the one with English licensed Duex book that I own. It is about a young boy and his obsessive/stalker-esque fascination with his neighbour and the darkness of expectations turned around. It is different from the one that was released with the Japanese licensed Biblos book. That one is about love between two brothers that they are desperately trying to reconcile in their minds: Also, an excellent story, but not as outstanding as the one in the Deux release.

I liked it more than I thought I would. The main story has a lot of charm. I liked the rivalry between the two boys and the way the girl worked between them. I do wish there was a sequel with a bit more development on the characters in the main story, which is why I rated it an 8 instead of a 10. That, and I didn't much care for the last story myself. Thankfully, it was short. (review based on English language translation)

I actually wish that the sidestory was not just a side. She could go further with this dark romance. If you're wanting to read this, skip the main dish and go for the desert.
