The first one..

I just loved the first couple. But don't you think it was so sudden and all? I'm talking about the ending. Like- Excuse me? How can that just end there like that? Well, it has been said so many times, so I'm not gonna repeat it. Just gonna state my opinion. Souma is really cute, and Masayoshi is a tsundere! Just my type of yaoi <3 Totally loved this couple! If only this damn story was a bit long! It was cute, funny! I wanted more of it!
I hated the second couple, and got so annoyed I stopped reading later on! Actually, I'd rather not say anything about the next 5 couples/story, since I haven't read them. But I can bet they won't be as sweet as the first one. Abe-sensei did a great job with the first one, but with the others.. I'd just say.. "Meh."

Well, for oneshots, the quality is very good. The art isn't the greatest, but it's really nice anyway. The stories are done well, but not developed- as to be expected for one shots. But none of these stories would have worked serialized anyway, so...

the one story that starts in the beginning of the book (most specifically the 1st story) wa great and unique (as others have mentioned) but the rest were your typical type of stories with your typical set of characters. The first story was awesome -- it was different from your typical yaoi formula so i would recommend reading this just for the cover story.

the other stories followed your typical yaoi storyline. they are not bad by any means but just nothing special and not memorable. i love her other works though!

I wish the main story could´ve been longer, felt like it was cut off right in the middle. Like, they had sex and bam there ends the story. A sequel might be good.
The Art is very cute, and you got this fresh kinda feeling from it.

I liked the main story the most, but the other oneshots weren´t bad either.

LOL the main story, souma-masayoshi, really turned out untypical xD

"This is the whip of love. It gets hot when it's swollen. We'll definitely get married."
"He's angry that my love injection failed."
"Sexual urges..... RETREAT!!!"

Overall pretty good read. I can read it over and over again. I've already read it 5 times. Has funny parts as well as sad, and I like the art as well. My favorite is the first story because you get to know the characters better and there are really funny parts. Easy read, would recommend.

i most enjoyed the first story, because it is longer, and because it can therefore take its time to have the relationship develop. also, i'm happy that masayoshi didn't go for souma when he was still in middle school; yay for controlling one's urges.

story 2 didn't really do it for me; i never figured out exactly what the problem was, why satoshi had cooled off. so it just fizzled out.

story 7 is mostly sad for me; lost opportunity because of not speaking one's mind, and then... yeah, that was anticlimactic.

the rest of the stories are pleasant enough for oneshots. i always enjoy abe's art as well.

All the stories are sweet and cute. However I really don't like the end of the last one. It actually feels sad. I hope that there will be sequel to get them together!
