Slow but nice.

I liked the simplicity of the romance mixed with drama. The art was soft and likable. I liked the younger brother pairing more than the older brothers. The romance took ages and I felt it was going no where but concluded nicely at the end.

It's not much and the art is not that pretty, not to mention that the ukes look a lot alike, but the characters are really likable and I enjoyed a lot how the point of view changes from chapter to chapter.

A bit clumsy but very earnest

There's no real gloss or fluff in this manga, but in the end it still gives off a really sweet feeling. The characters are more or less down to earth and relatively relatable, they're clumsy and awkward in dealing with their own relationships, but that only adds more to their appeal and readers just can't help but take a liking to how earnest they are in striving for love. The stories are rather low-key, which is quite suitable in this case, and the artwork also follows the same trait, creating a gentle and lovely read.

Sweet, Romantic Slice of Life

I'm not one to like love triangles, but I thought this one was well developed and the relationships were refreshingly simple. The setting of the manga gave it a slow-paced feeling even as the seasons change, and I love how it all comes together by the end. Overall, it was heartwarming. Nice art, stayed away from getting overly dramatic, and it allowed each character to tell his own story. Basically: recommended if you like the genres! The subtlety of the Slice of Life genre can sometimes seem boring to those who don't like it, so if you're looking for something that goes beyond what you'd expect in daily life, look elsewhere.

The plot wasn't anything amazing but both the art and the story were cute altogether. All the characters had their flaws and like the plot, they were pretty cliche and mainstream (nothing you haven't already seen in some other manga) but it didn't bother me much. Overall it was an ok read. Nothing amazing but it was a nice way of killing some time.

Second couple sucks

First story is cute. Second story, the sensei is just plain pathetic for letting those things happen to him. So careless and useless, dont even expect an ounce of sympathy from me.

This is a nothing special manga. It's something to pass the time with, but if you've read a lot of BL/yaoi this sort of cliche may or may not strike your fancy. The characters were nothing you haven't seen before and their situation has happened in many other past stories and will happen again in many future stories. Average at best.

Pretty good!

This story has most of what I look for in manga.
It has a captivating story that makes you not want to stop in the middle, it has interesting and lovable characters and good art.
The emotions come across here SO WELL!
It's a roller coaster ride of feelings, happy, sad, bittersweet.

The story is very interesting and well told and there's plenty of moments that make your heart skip a beat because they're portrayed just so beautifully!

If you like good stories and a sketchy looking art style then you'll like this one.
Recommended to any yaoi fan who looks for more than simple smut.

Mediocre at best. A boring and plain cliché yaoi story with no originality at all. In a day or two I'll have forgotten completely that I even read it.

Don't know what the heck the other raters have been reading, because this was plain boring. Can't recognize their praising words. Realistic characters? They were as flat as goddamn paper. >_>

This was really simple and sweet. The artwork also felt that way. The characters didn't all have a ton of development, but they did feel fairly realistic. Nothing was overblown and the relationships have a mostly very natural flow. I enjoyed it!
