I like Norikazu Akira and her simple but gorgeous art!
The story here was cute, moving but lacked a bit of depth simply because it ended very sudden!
Two characters who - more than once - exclaim that they are NOT gay and all the sudden they love each other after all and jump right into bed.
I did like that it takes them a while and you can sort of see how the feelings start and how Chi deals with it, but I found it a bit strange and we don't see anything about the sensei really...
I wish it was longer, so that the whole thing could have been drawn out even more, giving more time for feelings to develop, maybe cause some discomfort and problems,...
Well, aside from the very fast and rushed ending that seems to come out of nowhere, this manga is very cute, has funny moments and good humor and likable characters.
Definitely something almost anyone can read!

I was reading an article about BL, and in the comments, readers raved about this manga. When reading it, although I liked it, it didn't live up to the hype for me. The censors ruined the ecchi parts. And what was with the bombardment of "[cries]" towards the end?? It made the uke seem too...girly, I guess you could say.

This one is really light on the action, but the adorable characters make up for it. I just love little Shiro. The print version is censored a little more than the scans were, so don't expect Beast & Feast level detail here. If you have a friend you want to introduce to BL, then this is a good starter.

One thing bugs me about the print version, though, and that's the sloppy addition of "[cries]" at the end of most of Chihiro's sentences. It's like Viz didn't even bother trying to translate properly.

Very cute and very enjoyable. The seme rocked and totally made me love him. He is an awesome person with a very noble job (veterinarian) and loves furry, cute things....this is where Takahashi comes in and the fireworks start. I loved how their relationship grew from the first chapter towards the end and when they first realized their feelings for each other. Recommend!

The manga was sorta distorted but i felt it was still rather entertaining because of the semes personality. For some reason i have a thing for cold, masculine semes who dont show much emotion. I liked the fact that he kept the same personality throughout the manga and not breaking down into a mushy love struck guy by the end like most yaois do. This was a good read ^_^

The story was very cute, the characters funny, art was fantastic, but the sex scenes... a bit awkward, to say the least. The whole "realization of feelings" for each other felt a bit forced, and would have done well with another chapter or two to better develop the relationship.

Defiantly worth a read, just not for the smut smile

This is one of those mangas that doesn't jump right to the H, which is nice for a change... I really liked the plot, though not very original, and the characters were funny. This is my first yaoi with a beefcake seme but it wasn't bad. Not what I'd usually go for but oh well... The only thing I'd criticize would be the abruptness of Kuma-sensei's feelings for Chihiro. I would have liked to see a bit more development there... But still good! wink

Ok, i have to say i really enjoyed this, but i might be bias because lately i've been reading one shots which basically jump right into the sex dead you get sick of that after a while. Anyway, this is a nicely paced little series. The characters are what makes it so enjoyable and the fact that the relationship progresses at what i would call a normal pace - fondness, like, love, confession style. I also enjoy the dry humour in places ^^ and of course the art is delicious <3

If you would like a nice light fluffy read then this is a good place to start.
