This is the worst manga that I've read in a long time. The art is average, and as for me personally - close to terrible. The story is shallow, the heroes are boring and their portraits are painted with only a few strokes. It's painfully, sorely short, so short that you have no time at all to feel what's unfolding - all of it just runs past you. I don't really feel any reasoning behind the uke's actions, other than "the author wanted it to be so". No real romance, no sex, no conflict, no plot. And the ending is so disappointing that... I have no words to describe it. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

I really want to paint but i really don't know how lol. This story stirs my emotion, because the first Uke character is similar to me, Longing for freedom. The story is good though it's short but it is satisfying, the art is also good, overall it's worth to read.

Readable but hardly anything extraordinary about the manga. Not much smut either. Art is pretty, but maybe too pretty? Reminds me very much of a shoujo. The uke is super feminine which I am not fond of. Overall a so-so read.

Maybe it was because i had no expectations from this mangaka, but it was much better than expected. Not the best, but not bad either indeed. Could have been better if the characters would have been better fleshed out.

the stories are alright; nothing new here, but also nothing offensive. i'm usually a sucker for childhood friends, but these two didn't really touch me.

the art is alas not my style at all; it feels very shoujo -- flowers and sparkles everywhere, everyone is feminine, the faces are too triangular, the uke mouths are pinched, everybody is skinny and has huge, heavy-looking eyes, which are in perpetual wide-eyed surprise as well where the uke are concerned. some perspectives are also not right; nothing stood out to me as innovative, and there was nothing that had a bit of punch. overall the art isn't hideous, it's just not my cup of tea.

The art is so gorgeous I thought my head would explode...Ive read lots and lots of yaoi but it was really refreshing to read one that was so kind on the eyes. Usually in this case I would say to read it just for the art, but actually the two stories (intertwined with each other) were actually very well written and the translation was just wonderful!!!! great job attractive fascinate, I am very impressed. Highly recommended!!!!! biggrin

The art in this is really, really adorable. The story is nothing new, though it is also very cute. The description here doesn't mention it, but there are two couples in this book, and I liked the second one better. The potter and the painter were more interesting in my opinion, but the main couple was still adorable.

I look forward to seeing more fdrom this artist, I hope a group picks up her other work.

The artwork was very, very, cute, unlike many other yaoi mangas I've read. But the story-plot was kind of dramatic and rushed o.o; Oh well, I still loved it.

Didn't really feel that there was anything new in this storyline.
And the art was a bit too shoujo-manga-ish for my taste. The eyes were drawn waaaay too HUGE and the boys were too skinny.
