So upsetting

This manga was good up until the chapter when the class found out about Satou’s and Yoshida’s relationship. I mean some of the chapters that followed afterwards were good, but the rest—including the apparent “last volume”—were terrible. I was completely disappointed and I thought that the couple would become more romantic with each other and would have finally had slept together—maybe hint at it since this is a Shounen-ai manga and not completely at yaoi one.

And what was with the last volume, especially the last chapter? It was truly disappointing and made me a little upset at yoshida at the end. (If I’m remembering this right since I read this a few months ago). I thought for sure that the author would add more to this story and to Yoshida’s feelings towards Satou in the next volume, but I am just finding out that there’s not gonna be another one!

Plus some the characters that came after the class discovery chapter, especially the boy who liked Satou, were such a letdown. They were clearly wasted potential,

So upsetting. This story started off so well and should’ve end the same way. Unless I am missing something here, and need to reread, I hope one day the author picks this manga back up again and gives it a better ending.

I do love it, but I wish that the last volume was more conclusive.
Otherwise, the style, the characters, the humor - all top notch!

Reading it for Yoshida

Satou is just... intolerable. Sure, a sadist's joy must be to tease their love interest, but this is just unaccaptable! You gotta be gentle at times as well and respect your lover. If not, then it isn't a relationship anymore. Satou is plain selfish, and I don't think he should continue misbehaving simply because Yoshida accepts him the way he is.
True, Yoshida's reactions are adorable! But of you love a person, you gotta sacrifice some of your sick enjoyment for the sake of making them happy. I just wonder why everybody else in this manga is just horrible to Yoshida! He deserved all the happiness in this world.

I loved how Yoshida at one point questions why the hell he is dating Satou who is too selfish, a liar and is just too unlikable. This is something that had been on my mind as well.

It isn't as if Satou actually defends Yoshida either! He only acts possessive even when the rival treats Yoshida better, and then forgets that Yoshida gets mistreated by his fans sad. Moreover, he is rude to Yoshida's friends!

Regardless of all, I still love it and I enjoy the story. I don't normally mind this type of dynamic, but the characters aren't some flat 1-D ones that I couldn't help but get extremely attached to cutie Yoshida. In fact I only read it for him, and for the moments where Satou faces hardships or getd pwnd. He is just such a loser....

Ever since it got licensed the releases seem to have gotten slower. This is probably my favorite shounen-ai! Typically I do not like the bully seme stereotype, because you cannot really tell if they actually like their partner. I was pleasantly surprised with Sato. He genuinely seems to care about Yoshida and his teasing actually seems playful instead of downright cruel. I am very happy I found this manga and I am glad it is still ongoing. I only read a few of Tanaka Suzuki's work and loved those as well. I hope to see more of her work!

So, So Good

SIGH. I just wished that the Yaoi genre had more of this sort as opposed to the heavy, violent, rated, angsty stuff. This is a prime example of a good, fluffy high school Yaoi manga meant for starters. It'll just keep you plunged into the Yaoi genre for a good long while just so you could find more just like this series which is kind of difficult to find (given that it has good art and good plot like this one).
This manga is THAT GOOD.
PLUS, this manga has that so-called 'good looking, capable seme' paired with 'weird/plain looking straight-ish uke' dynamic which is a total bonus for Yaoi readers because it's hella duper cute and humans worldwide are on a witch hunt for this kind of treasure trove (okay, I exaggerate but this is exactly what fujoshis and fudanshis alike thirst for, check forums). So, if you think you're a greenhorn and really can't handle boy x boy, give this one a good, long try. It's really good.
The only stint there is to this manga would be it's painfully slow updates. The wait makes you think that it's discontinued. Which is very sad.

This manga is just so beautiful. I'm in love with Yoshida. He is very interesting! Each of his activity is so attractive, so is his blushing face!! He is the ideal uke <33 I also love Satou's sadistic side! It's freaking hot! Ugh, I've always wanted an overprotective/sadistic/psycho boyfriend~ Anyway, let's not get in my topic. The art is actually enjoyable. Yes, at first, it is indeed a bit hard to get used with the art, aka. "Yoshida's ugly face". But if you can just read 1/2 chapters, you'll definitely get used to it. Perhaps you'll start loving it, just like me!!
I'm waiting for it to update!

At first I was like "Meh, the art isn't good, especially Yoshida, he is truly UGLY." but soon...it just..appeared to be more cute and cuter by the chapters. I really didn't realize how cute Yoshida's blushes looked like!! I'm just in love with this manga!

A new character was introduced and I think to myself: "okay.... so that means at least 2-3 more volumes. WHY Lord, oh why!?"
I want the series to finish already!
Don't get me wrong, I luv it! I enjoy it! that's shounen-ai/school life at its best.
But the anticipation for a new release is killing me.

Adorable

Charming, adorable, funny, cute... This manga is exactly what I look for in a shounen-ai. Yoshida is the cutest uke ever, and his blushes are adorable. I also loved Satou as the seme: he doesn't really take himself that seriously at points, which I thought was nice, and realistic. The art wasn't my favourite at the start, but I grew to love it: I think the mangaka is a bit of a genius at the portrayal of the relationship between the two and the thoughts and situations they go through.

I also loved the side characters (all of them). One of my favourite points was when it flashed back to Satou's past in the 'English school': I thought that was kinda cool, and gave depth and added perspective to his character The girls were also very funny.

Altogether a lovely shounen-ai, with comedy and a great couple that don't always take themselves that seriously. I don't recommend reading in one-sitting, as the story is very long with relatively little development, but it is definitely one of my favourites, and will be highlighted in such in my very long list of 'read' manga's.

Enjoy!

Still a long way to go..

Aitsu no Daihomei... This manga is so fun, though the word 'fun' doesn't seem enough. It's hilarious and entertaining and refreshing. This is what comedy really is.

As for the art, it's detailed, clean, and clear. You can figure every character's emotion out easily. I also like the fact that this isn't some kind of manga where girls aren't allowed or doesn't even exist. For me, BL with an adequate existences of women adds the spices of the plot. Good thing Tanaka - sensei doesn't seem to have a problem having them in a story, unlike some mangaka.

The plot and the characters, though, seemed to be clichéd for 'the ugly, unpopular guy, beautiful, handsome prince and batallion of cheeky fangirls', have been developed into something sensible and interesting one. It doesn't actually revolves on the relationship of the two, but also on how they deal with the things bothering inside them - the constant bullying, the way people look at them, be it as 'monkey-looking' or the 'popular' one, and understanding their own feelings towards the other. What's so disturbing for me is that the discrimation about Yoshida and his other 'ugly' friends. It's too much that I ended up somewhat irritated for Yoshida since he doesn't do anything, although he can't actually anything about his face. But he's so manly and gentleman at some point, that I can't help it but pity him. That must be horrible, so I thought. The sadistic part of Satou as well, it's too much but somehow, it can made Yoshido more likeable. And it's also understandable because of what he has been through. But Yoshida is still the stronger one and that's his good points. But for all those mean girls, I wanna beat them to pulp. But since it's still ongoing I want Yoshida saying 'I may be ugly but I'm not ashamed of myself!' or something like that.

But it is still a long way to go. biggrin
