Firstly, I adore the art. And the storyline is quite direct actually. I understand what's going and who's who. Obviously in the beginning I thought Chikanari was cheating on Kamo with Ashiya but I laughed when I see the next scene of their "affair". Basically the plotline is okay but it's quite cliche and very normal. I like the side story as well! I don't know why but from the very start of the story, I knew that Ibuki was lying. It's a good read!

Ok, I don't know how anybody is confused by this's the height of silliness, and clearly meant to be. I busted out laughing more than once. If you're looking for a serious love story, go elsewhere, but if you want some ridiculous fluff with a bit of smut thrown in, it's a fun read. smile

I agree that this manga is confusing, but it isnít because it has a complex plot or something like that, I think itís because of the way itís developed.

You get a feeling that the mangaka had a clear idea in her mind of what she wanted to happen, but somehow the way it turned out isnít like it, maybe she understands whatís happening, but the reader doesnít.

I'll start off by saying that the first thing that caught my eye was the prettiness of the art; seriously, these characters are just so terribly adorable, I honestly feel like eating them right up. And then. we get to the plot, there's been a number of complaints that there's a whole lot of convoluted emotional bull in the story, and frankly, I beg to differ. Koma starts off as a completely delusional whacked out psycho, but it's a way of dealing with pain.

People deal with pain in different ways, and I've no idea about others, but I've had friends who are twins before, and they're like two halves of a whole, that's how close they are. Losing a twin would feel worse than losing a limb, it'll be like losing half of your soul, it's like being incomplete emotionally.

Another thing about what Kamo said, if you dress and act like someone long enough, you can understand what's in their heart. While that may sound completely bogus, it's been mentioned during relationship management talks I've been to, so it's legit. And yes, I believe Kamo has the right of it when he said Chikanari loves Ayashi. But then a person can love more than one other, (As Laurell K Hamilton taught me) and Kamo simply didn't realize that Chikanari loved him as well, loved him more.

Of course, if you're the type to believe in the One True Love (Boy, then you'll totally hate Laurell K Hamilton's books) this probably isn't for you. But I think it's a nice change after all the intense all-consuming soulmates-forever-after, and all the silly-cute BFFs (Boy Friends Forever), their relationship is not particularly perfect, but the flaws are real and it makes for an interesting plot.

Average plots but shitty progression. That was horrible. Such a bore. The first story was stupid..dont even know where to begin. It was all over the place..
Spoiler (highlight to view)
especially when Koma "concluded" that Chikanari was in love with Ayashi and all that useless info.. then turns out Chikanari really likes Koma. So why..whyyyyyy would the author even mention it if it wasn't going to lead to anything or whatever. I think the only thing I found sensible was the reason why Koma imitated Chikanari..sure it was sort of stupid and unrealistic too..but he had a genuine reason. Now with the author instering the issue with Ayashi and those moments..he should've just remained the "in love with his friend" character without any advances.
if u wanna read it for the sake of the art go ahead! but if you want something cute, fluffy bla bla there are SO MANY other yaoi mangas out there to choose from.

I only read the one-shot "Your Love is Your Sweet Lies", by chance - and given the rates for the main story, I'm not even going to read it.
Well, as for the one-shot I read, it was REALLY cute! Sersiouly, the story had a sudden twist to it that I wasn't expecting at all, so it surprised me in a good way!
And it's not like anything I've ever seen before! It was surprisingly elaborated for such a short story, also! If you don't like the main story, at least read this one shot because it really is adorable!
(I'm not rating it because i didn't read the main story)

I thought it was really cute.
Sure, the story could have been a little bit more clear, but it really wasn't that difficult to comprehend. By the end I understood it without very much effort even though I was reading it in the middle of the night. The mangaka had some great ideas and her art is certainly pleasing to the eye. I don't see why so many people are hating on this.

Well, I'm glad I'm not the only one to find this story confusing...Who loves who, is it really love, or they are just searching for a replacement for another person? The conversations are very mixed...

The art is pretty good and I had a few laughs too, but It deffinitely wasn't one of the best ones...

This is one of those story that is so confusing for me. Maybe someone can understand however, the dude likes this one or that one. And his best friend is still close like lover to him when he already has someone he dates with. I think it is confusing and dumb story. The art is so-so.
