I never read anything from this mangaka before, so i didnt know what to expect.....but i really liked it!!~
I like to read yaoi with male prostitution (is it so weird? XD).
The art was nice,all characters were likable, much love,i liked how it started,the seme was a really nice guy, the uke got the affection he deserved,...
I enjoyed this and i hope i will read more from this mangaka~
Minna,surely give this manga a try!!~

Touching, funny, nice story with a great art. If you can't decide on what yaoi you should read next - then pick up the one of Miyamoto Kano's. It won't disappoint you. This one has strong plot and very good art. The characters are likeable (also supporting characters - they were great), there's background for them, the pace of the story comes just right, there's twist in plot and such. The main character with a broken heart tries to pull himself together - that's the beginning, it's not original but the author has the ability to change the story about average people into lovely captivating touching romance. It was fun to read. The Same good as Aisanai Otoko. I always think that her comic books could be a very good (classic) books as well.

Recommended. It's really worth to read.

The main character was a major downer for me. He meant well and all but, honestly, stalking? If I was the uke in this story I would have freaked out bigtime. That's just creepy. You'll have to read it though; I won't reveal too much. I finished it so that's good; It's worth reading at least.

The story was sweet enough, but for some reason, this manga just didn't draw me in. I feel like it was just sort of... dull. It was a nice manga, but I didn't feel invested in the characters, or the plot. I can see lots of people liking it; just wasn't my cup of tea.

it's just way too cute. i loved it. i knew takeshi was a great guy, because even if he occasionally slept with with shuu-chan, he got his hopes up and actually started to like him. i mean, he kept asking for more from shuu-chan and that stood out to me from his previous appearance in Aisanai Otoko. so i'm really happy he got his own love and that was someone that loves/cherishes him very much.

Didn't draw me in. The most fun parts were when the main guy and his boyfriend ran into his friend Shuu and Shuu's boyfriend (Also, when Shuu and the main guy were chatting). Much more dynamic.

But it was well done.

That was a wonderful story, I loved it. I didn't really like Takashi in Aisanai Otoko but now that he was in the spotlight we got to know he's a real softie inside (don't misunderstand, he's damn cool), and hey, he's a great man with stalking tendencies. biggrin The pacing was good and the charcters - even the supporting charas - were all people you can bump into anytime in real life, just like expected from Miyamoto-sensei. There were a lot of drama mainly because of the AV industry and prostituing but the end smoothed everyting, and really, I feel very happy and satisfied now. Oh, and I loved how Sahara-san from the prequel kept being in contact with Takashi through the story. ^^

All in all, a great manga, I definitely recommend it. smile
