Idk it felt like it stopped in the middle of the climax part of the story. There's no proper resolution. It deserves another chapter on what happened after Takayuki realized that he doesn't need to pretend (he used the term "bluff") around Ken.

This gets low ratings I think because it just drops off at the end right before they get anywhere in bed. I think the main appeal here is not that at all though. What it does offer is a sweet, silly story which I find to be very cute. Their dynamic is really playful and innocent, and not one you find in BL often.

Quite a funny little story, I liked how Taka-chan tried, yet failed, at being the lead in their relationship ^__^ Makes a change from the usual dominant seme, and it was refreshing seeing an uke who was just as eager to have sex as well. Plus I liked how Ken had two sides of him, the cutesy innocent side that made him seem naive, then the feisty and more erotic side too.

Unfortunately, as others have mentioned, this does end quite abruptly. I really think it needed a final chapter to actually show their first time. But it was still pretty cute despite the slightly rushed ending, so if you want a light and quick read, then this'll do.

In response to Otakuness' comment, no, Taka doesn't leave his finger in.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
After their very brief hug, Ken apologises that due to him leaning forward to hug him, Taka's finger slipped out. And then they cuddle. So no, he doesn't just leave his finger in him. That would hardly be comfortable for either of them.
But the last sentence you wrote about "dumpsites" is actually pretty offensive. I assume you knew this was BL when you started reading it right? If so, then I'm sure you realise that anal sex is standard for gay couples (and some heteros too). So you're little comment is basically insulting everyone who engages in it. Perhaps you meant it as a joke, but still, I don't think it's really appropriate.

but this is really cute and sweet there was much hotness or smexy butit somehow felt like a parody thar i can forgive it. the art is simple and cute smile the characters generic. alls good, the mangaka did what she was supposed to do and that was that. i wasnt really disappointed i was just wasting time. but one thing that i couldnt wrap my head around was teh part when Tsutsumi inserted his finger up Taka's asshole, i mean, he didnt remove it for the whole duration of their cuddle? i was just like WTF? but whatever.. just dont smell that finger bro. i know you love him but dumpsite is still a dumpsite xD

Well it did start out funny, but I thought it's way too short for a good development, and the story did run around in circles going about the same themes all the time... There's loads of potential for this like how Tsutsumi can think about other ways to become alone together with Ken, or how Ken can show Tsutsumi that he's not as ignorant as he seems... well... darn... the artwork can be better too...

It's comedic and rather sweet, but rather underdeveloped or rushed. The last chapter and its ending felt hurriedly done, which leaves a sense of dissatisfaction.It could have been a lot better.
