It's smut and nothing else.
And the smut isn't even good.
The plot of the oneshots is really random and disconnected, making little sense and not even providing a good base for the sex scenes.
The art is really whacky... when I read yaoi that is pretty much just smut without a story then at least I want the art to be good - the characters to look handsome and the sex scenes to be steamy and sexy! But this manga has none of that... the art is off, the expressions are overly silly and unattractive and just off putting...
This manga really gave me nothing... don't waste your time on this. There's only one oneshot that is ok, the rest are terrible.

My first impression of this wasn't too good. The art style isn't particularly good, nor do the stories stand out, but i gave it a chance and it was 'ok'. I've only read the first four stories are those are the only ones i found available online, but they were mediocre at best, with the fourth being a little more interesting but still not amazing. In general the stories are not very original, the art isnt great and the characters have no depth or real individuality. Much of the stories seem an excuse for smut. Its an ok read for a boring day but dont get any expectations or you'll be disappointed.
