Otohiko Seki is a salaryman still grieving his dead wife 2 years late. Every day, he finishes his work promptly, goes to the supermarket, goes home and prepares his dinner. His life gradually settled back into this steady rhythm, like a heartbeat.

He was drunk last night, but he apologizes and pays anyway. How dare he apologize! Kusuo is just like every other whore... so why is he treating him like this? He is angry and confused, and leaves with the money.
But soon their paths will cross again.Throw in a violent pimp and best friend who secretly loves Seki and things get complicated. How will these two completely different people affect each other's lives?

i absolutely loved this manga. it is really... deals with a lot of issues, and it has a heart-rending storyline that i really adored.

i love the art, especially the way touya is drawn as a megane, kinda nerdy, character but is still drawn in a way that makes him look sexay and i love him so much none

i rate this as a ten, because i completely love it, and the description ^at the top of this page is a bit rubbish, it doesnt tell you anything about the story, so i'm gonna edit it now smile

I admit I only read the first two chapters so I don't know whether it gets better or whether there is a twist to what I already read that I didn't wait to find out about BUT - what I read made no sense. *possible spoiler* he sleeps with a dude by accident when drunk. Wakes up and regrets it. The dude comes and knocks on his door and he announces to the dude that he has fallen in love with him and couldn't admit it.
?! what?
Didn't make any damn sense that's what.

Old school BL strikes again with all of its nonsensical melodrama and terrible character writing lol. I don't think there's a single merit to this manga, but hey, it was only one of the author's earliest attempts and to be fair, she did get better with time, as evidenced in her later titles. One thing I'd particularly like to complain about is the subpar translation on the fan scanlation team's behalf. Everything was just.. bad. Yeah.

1st story: There is no plot development. It is as if today is Monday but tomorrow is all of a sudden Friday.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The guy is deeply depressed over his dead wife and then has a drunken sex night with the uke and lo and behold, he wakes up next morning and realizes that he was gay all along and didn't love his wife really at all Aaaaaaaaaaaand that he is in love with the guy he had sex with - and that's the kicker - whom he doesn't remember meeting.
Believe it or not the first story is still the better one. Because in the second story, the seme realizes that he is in love with the uke, while he is having him gangraped by 2 thugs because he wants to get rid of the uke. ?????

I have read plenty of 1 volume yaoi not to mention tons of oneshots. So I am used to plotless stories. But this one really left a bad aftertaste.

It did deal with issues, but unfortunately it was not that fluid in its story. I know its yaoi but for some reason I think I was expecting more from it and then was a little disappointed. Whatever...
