Nothing too great of a story..the characters were very stereotypical and I haven't really enjoyed them that much. Aoi was very childish and whiny, yet wanting to be seen as an adult while Kazuoki is just insanely possessive and pervy. But it was readable. What I really enjoyed was Imai and the last story that revolved around Imai and Shinohara. Both of them had much more personality than the main pair and were quite easy to relate to and like, especially Imai.
.....And I have a thing for hot infirmary teachers with ponytail.

It's not a bad read, but it depends on how much you like or dislike the main characters. If you can't find it in you to like them, try to at least read the fifth chapter.

The art is tolerable, but it does look a bit botched in places, the story line is okay, but the characters are a different story.
I wasn't bothered much by Sakurai, but dear me, Aoi irked me multiple times throughout the series. He's the type of uke that I'd prefer not to encounter in a manga, and if it wasn't for my habit of finishing a manga no matter what, I probably would've stopped reading after the first of Aoi's hissy fits.
It's all right as a whole, but it's not something totally memorable. The only reason I remember this series, though, was definitely because of Aoi, and that wasn't meant in a light way.

though nothing special, and i wouldn't recognise the mangaka from her art. the story is insipid; the bratty kid who throws tantrums every chance he gets -- and then screams that he doesn't want to be treated like a kid -- is paired with a not much more mature, much older man, who's possessive for no reason whatsoever, but can't find it in himself to keep a simple promise for the kid's birthday. i dislike both of them. the second story's characters are on stage too short for me to care, the infirmary doctor has at least some personality, but the secretary is just bland.

the daddy long legs trope isn't used well, and i really hated the denouement, because naturally the kid had to not only be under age, but also dolled up in a dress. lots of cliches here, none of which are executed interestingly,

The art was nice enough, but the story was a bit shallow in a way. Aoi really acted like a child, even though he constantly screamed that he didn't want to be seen as a kid. So that was quite contradicting. Nonetheless, it was okay entertainment.

Love the art..but the story was average. It was I did bother to finish it. But I won't be reading it again anytime soon.

It as cute reading to see if Aoi would figure out that his chancellor was sakurai . ^^

For some reason I hated this one. Both main characters grated on me, and their problems seemed too unimportant and pointless. Basically I also hated the artwork, so perhaps that plays a part in my dislike. It's not that I'm expecting much more than entertainment from my Yaoi, but this one simply didn't entertain me at all. Anyway these two main characters, both uke and seme were ugh... I was sooo grateful for the last chapter because at least it wasn't about them anymore!

Eh no comment yet?! I really liked the ART and the outfit of the characters especially Aoi. The Story was good, it was funny and no angst. The only thing i hate is sometimes the uke can get so whiny and get on my nerves. Everything was good including the story involving the secretary.
