This was such a cute story, a bit fast moving but still cute. I'm pretty sure I've read it before, I probably have it on my manga shelf somewhere who knows but yeah I really do like the story!

Nakatani is a cute character, even though he's older then the other, he still acts just as cute. He doesn't know how to confess to the person he likes properly that he ends up getting hurt a few times. He's a bit preverted because of his brother and what happen in the past but otherwise he's just a big cutie who doesn't know how to express himself causing him to get nervous and get sick cause of that. Amano is cute and shy, he doesn't know if what he feels is the same as what Nakatani feels. He's also kind of slow but real sweat. I really like his character and if your wondering he's the brown haired on in the cover picture above.

As for the Romance, it moves quite slow because of how they have to deal with each others on insecurities about the relationship. Nakatani gets nervous whenever he's with Amano and gets sick to his stomach at the result. So they have to take it slow but it's sweat how they learn to be with each other and face their insecurities.

It's a great plot line showing how they first met and how they learned they both like each other. Then it shows you how they get over the small things to be together. Not to mention there is a cute sidestory at the end that tells you about Nakatani brother and a past releationship that has that character shown in the main story.

It's a great short story and I do recommend reading it. It's not the best but it's cute and the romance is great when they get to it.

I've read tons of yaoi. Really, enough to last me a lifetime. So it's fairly easy to say that I knew where the whole thing was heading right from the beginning.

But just because it's predictable doesn't mean the story isn't good. It turned out to be a lot better than I expected. The characters have debth and you can't help but love their interactions and enjoy seeing their love progress.

Hiyori and Amano are both equally adorable and that's not often seen in many yaoi. Usually the seme is a coldhearted bastard that thinks the uke will always be there behind his butt when he turns around. That makes this one a nice change. Not too mention the sex scenes are very..well drawn ^_^

With that said, if you're looking for something different and original then this one might not cut it but it's definitely worthy of adding into your wish list because it's a hard one to miss. It's fluffly, cute, yet very entertaining and sexy.

A Sweet, Consensual, Blushing One

She has quite a variety in themes, this mangaka!

This is a very cute and sweet story. It's one of her consensual, blushing and awkward virgin style ones, so it will surely be more popular since it appeals to the typical romance reader.

Her stories are undeniable likeable, so even this black heart of mine fell in love with the two main characters of this tale. The art is beautiful; it holds with her later style which has an aesthetic appeal of white space and effeminate round, clean lines. Her toner use by the late 2000s has become absolutely stunning!

The only complaint I have with this manga, is that Itsuki-sensei introduces a boy who the reader just knows will cause the playful, lustful older brother who only ever has physical relationships know true love and suffering, but then she never completes the tale.

OMG. They like each other so much, and yet...the situations they put themselves in. *shakes head* xD The older brother reminds me of the older brother from Fruits Basket, even though more perverted. ^^; Itsuki-sensei really gets the humor and the body language spot on. I couldn't stop laughing.

Really quite cute. The art is lovely, the story is paced, I can't think of anything negative.
