Uke chasing after seme, totally my type ^^, this manga is sure different from thousand manga out there that seme always chasing crazily after uke... that's why I really love this. This manga is NOT "a lot of the typical yaoi cliches" at all ^^...

one part of this confused me, this guy Shingo is in (spoiler) bed with Ray, and this amazingly hot guy tells him he likes him and wants to sleep with him, and Shingo cries? and goes off to a club to find a stranger to sleep with, even though he just rejected Ray because he felt he didnt have feelings for him that were the same as his. if he doesnt like unemotional sex, why would he sleep with a stranger and not the man he loves?? i would understand if he was hesitant to be in a relationship with a guy thats dated many girls, but he was just very immature and acted like a spoilt child, i wasnt sure of Rays feelings but i guess its possible to be such close friends with someone that you don't realize the feelings that you have are not "friendly" but it would have been better to stretch it out a little. plus, did i mention that these boys are in college and even though Ray has a long list of women he slept with Shingo is still a virgin? even though he randomly decided to do it with a stranger he met 30 minutes later. it would have been more interesting if Shingo in the beginning decides to try dating a guy so that he can move on, and this makes Ray realize his feelings. i dont know, it was a cute story but it felt like there was something missing. plus, i am so sick of the weepy uke scene.

P.S. The friend Ri-chan (who by the way gave me mixed feelings i liked him in the beginning but i hated how he slobbered his friends while he was sleeping so low) will have his own story published.

Likeable & includes a nice oneshot.

Unfortunately I missed to read this one first and then Lotus Eater (which is related to this, yet not exactly a sequel), so if you haven't started this then doing so will be a good idea. Anyways, this piece of work was likeable, too. And - As usual, the drawing style of Tenzen was catchy and especially the sharp eyes, got me hooked on it again.

Yes, it is not as strong as other works by the author, but I came to liked the relationship between the rather innocent Shingo and the womanizer Ray. Although the conclusion seemed rushed, but this might be because of the limited space the story had for development. I liked the insecurities Shingo has and later the changes of the viewpoint, which helped to understand the counterpart and his behaviour better.

The onshot was really nice and interesting, because it deals with the painful side relationships can have, if they are build from love triangles or if other peoples feelings are involved. The twist in the storyline, when the names come together and everything becomes clear between the characters, caught me by surprise - and had impact. So, let alone this oneshot, I won't regret reading this Manga.

I personally didn't mind at all that Shingo went off to find someone else, even after Ray had (kinda) confessed. After all from his point of view it did seem more like childish possessiveness or even just plain lust than the truth at that time. And it's not like he just threw himself at any guy for the sake of having sex, it was just because he wanted to put an end to his unrequited love and all the pain he'd been suffering from for so long, which I think is fair enough really. But even then he was hesitant, he only went off with the guy because Rihito assured him it was okay. Besides it provided the push that Ray needed so it all worked out for the best.
Also another thing I don't agree with is a lot of people's opinions of Rihito. I don't think what he did was bad at all. Yes doing that sort of thing to your sleeping friend isn't exactly good, but he didn't go as far as a lot of BL characters would've done. And thanks to him we got to see Ray go all threatening too XD
The art was also amazing and the sex scene was hot (Tenzen-sensei always delivers such pretty art) and even though there was no real angst or heavy drama, it was enough to keep me entertained. Definitely looking forward to reading Lotus Eater because for me Rihito was the most interesting character, so I can't wait to read his story.
Anyways, I still think overall it was a good read. Yeah there are lots of cliches but come on, that's hardly something new is it. These things wouldn't be overly used if they weren't what the majority of fans want. I admit I do prefer reading something original and fresh but there's nothing wrong with the usual plot-lines if it's done well. And this is done well.

The random oneshot called Guilt was really good too. It's message about how there are times when you're going to wind up hurting somebody no matter what you do was quite powerful. Very bittersweet ending when you think of the senpai (can't remember his name but felt so sorry for him)

i love beautiful art and this manga has it. seme and uke are hot. i especially like long hair bishie and i am glad there's one here. storywise, this is like shounen-ai more with little yaoi. it's nice reading this. give it a shot. not too over the top.

While on one level to do find this sweet (especially since there is nothing crazy, nonconsensual, or just WEW happens) I also find this work shallow. Stuff, a lot of it, just happens and there’s absolutely no explanation for it. For example, where does all of Ray’s love for Shingo spring from? Okay, I admit that Ray says, “I don’t know myself … but if it’s you”, which gives him the license to get away (not really tho) but then there’s absolutely no character development from Shingo’s side.
Though, there are certain situations are explained, such as Ray going out of his way to befriend and keep close to Shingo, which help give the story its coherence.

I am not a fan of this weird proportions art styles, but with such high rating i thought I'd read it anyway but I have no idea why this such high ratings. It's an average, boring manga that is too fast paced and I'm even including the weird one shot that made no sense in my ratings.

The story is good particularly the one shot, it was deep and somehow made my heart squeeze. The art is also good, but the romance, i'm not satisfied i want more chapters about it.

Too Short or Too Fast?

Well... i feel lack of something! My favorite character in this manga is the Seme, Ray. He is a interesting character in this manga, love to tease his lover, and kind of Possessive. But maybe the problem is with the Uke, Shingo. I didn't say Shingo is bad character or annoying, but his character is felt not 'real'. Especially in the sex scene, I didn't particularly like his act on there. He said that is his first, but he seemed to act like someone who has been experienced. It was very weird!
But i'm glad i already read Lotus Eater before i read this manga. If not, i must be think Rihito aka Ri-chan, Shingo's friend, is kinda weird, annoying maybe? or reckless? Well... never judge book from the cover, right?! biggrin
Hmm... I think think manga is good, well... not as good as Lotus Eater i think. But it's enough! Pretty sweet~♥ Maybe just too fast or too short. hehe... Nice manga!

I liked the story, but i thought it was lacking character development. After reading it, i have no clue as to how old they are or even what they are studying in school!
Also sensei has a habit of introducing a side character to bring some conflict into the story, but it's never followed through....
