I agree with naikan. The pace made me cringe. If the mangaka wants to write a story for unrequited love with a homophobe, it should spread out over several volumes, in my opinion. I stopped halfway through chapter 2 for the first story, because I couldn't take it. Chapter 5.5 was nice though.

Through I don't like the first story. At first I thought that uke is just a tsundere and love will help him to find the kinder side of himself, to behave gentle, at least in front of his lover but I was wrong. He hasn't changed a bit, he's simply violent, unpleasant just horrible and it seems he don't give a damn about his lover. It seems he hates him, love to beat him and make him hurt. It's annoying. I don't like this character at all.
Other stories are great smile It's this kind of manga where you find plot (but not too complicated), memorable characters, beautiful art, romance, humour and hot sex scenes. It was fun. The art is outstanding! One of the best smile
Definitely worth to read!

I love the last story, it's so cute! The first one is pretty cute too. The second one just felt too rushed... like I couldn't tell if the younger step brother actually cared for his older brother or not. It seemed like he did, but at the same time it seemed like he was still using sex services after getting together. But that's just the impression I got. But like I said, the piano lesson stories were very sweet, I'd definitely read it again ^__^

For a one-volume multi-story BL manga, this was actually pretty good. The plot and characterization was decent compared to others that I have read that are similar to this. The art, in particular, is really nice. I like how this mangaka portrayed expressions. Overall, it was a nice, short work that managed to lift my mood a little.

yeah i like it very much because of the characters. they are so stubborn and cute biggrin first story i like the most. I think It can be a full manga where things go slowly between guys (right now i can't remember their names biggrin ) and art is so good I love this drawing style.It has't got so deep issue it is just for fun.I think İf you read this you would have a good time.

Art: 9/10
Stories: 8/10
Characters: 10/10

I really loved the art in this manga, I mean, who can resist Junkos talent for drawing adorable characters? The stories were cute, nothing out of the ordinary though, but they had a nice "easy-going" flow to them. So basically they´re not something to be taken too seriously, then you wouldn´t enjoy them. My favorite story was probably the first one, "Rough Boyfriend".

Looking forward to more Manga by Junko.

the art is very pleasant and cute to look at. i especially like the way the mouth drawn crookedly. the characters are a happy bunch and likable. i have soft spot for the tsundere characters in here. a breeze read.

xD The humour in this makes me laugh hard. Its also really cute, I also love tsundere characters in general but the guy in this takes that to an extreme *grin* All of the stories in this manga are amusing with interesting (and hilarious) characters. Im especially fond of the final story, it makes me laugh the most for some reason, especially on the last page *smirk*

Lovely story, I definitely would want to read more of this mangaka. What I like the best after reading this manga is the development of the character, I find them really adorable. I wish that each chapter is longer so I can read more.

This does remind me of a poor man's Koisuru Boukun , but I still found it pretty cute. The art is nice and the characters are fun. It's nothing amazing and every idea in it has been done and done much better, but I enjoyed reading it for light reading.
