I wanted to rate this as a zero but I still like and respect Takanaga-sensei...

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
"If I wanted to sleep a guy, I'd only sleep with you <3 "

" I can't help going out with girls because I'm still young. It's a thing I really want to do."

----- wise words from Akira

"* Of course it's a lie. He had hard core sex with a girl --- pretending to sleep with a producer to get a role*"

I'm really sorry but this is probably one of the worst yaoi manga that I've read. I can't believe that Takanaga Hinako wrote this (No disrespect intended to Takanaga-sensei). I was really frustrated reading this, I thought Akira would have change after Kouta had an accident and got hospitalized, BUT NO.
Akira didn't get into the university but instead he became a famous actor instead, oh and he even asked Kouta to drop out of school to be his manager, of course since Kouta is super smart and loving, he did dropped out of college for Akira. Akira pretended to sleep with a producer to get a role but in reality he had some hard core sex with a girl, still a cheater huh.
Gaaaaah the only reason I finished the story was because I was hoping for a character development, sadly it didn't happen.
Akira is such a f*ck*ng cheating a**h*le (I hope your d*ck falls off) and Kouta is so st*pid.

I thought that that bastard uke/seme (idk what's his position) will change, i mean i'm hoping for him to be faithful atleast, he is so lousy, a jerk i just got irritated, he had some hardcore sex with a girl?! And he's lying about it blaming innocent people just to make sex with kouta. I just hate it eventhough i like the art

some parts were okay...

I really should've read the reviews for this one...

I thought some parts were okay. Like, from where it started, I had better expectations for where it was heading. Like, I like some of the angsty parts that seemed to develop, but then they were made comical and in bad taste.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
It's especially appalling knowing from the start how sincere Kouta is and wants a monogamous relationship, and then having Akira continue to sleep around. I guess, since they never establish being in love with each other, and the last affirmation of their relationship is that they're 'sex friends.' Okay. I like deeper relationships so that's why I didn't like that there wasn't more development. I maybe would have been okay with another chapter that showed them getting together romantically as well, but well if the author wants Akira to continue to have casual sex with other people, then what can you do. I just feel super bad for Kouta in the end, because, when you think about it, he ended up quitting school because Akira told him to, AND he doesn't get to be in a monogamous relationship with Akira, who he's probably in love with. And that is just saaaad.

You can just skim this manga.

I am also a fan of Takanaga Hinako-sensei, so I was actually reading in the beginning of the manga. It was terrible from the start, but eventually I just started skimming very broadly and I still felt very irritated. I guess I just don't understand Hinako-sensei's sense of humor because being cheated on all the time is not at all funny and even in the last page of the manga the uke is still cheating on the seme. That's just not right at all... the uke is one of the most annoying manga character I have come across and he does NOT deserve the seme in any way. Seme has to grow some balls and leave the uke.

I usually end up skimming mangas that people comment NEVER to read because I get so curious. This is one of those mangas. Take my advice and skim from the very beginning if you're considering reading this manga. Actually spending more than 10 minutes on this volume is a huge waste of time. It's absolute garbage. Plotline to me is actually on par with hentai, except there's less sex scenes.

(Probably spoilers ahead) Akira is the most selfish guy I"ve ever read about in a manga. Souta is so cute, devoted, and in love with him and Akira returns this love by sleeping with girls behind his back like it's normal and forcing him to quit his studies and become a manager for his new whim of wanting to be an actor. He only ever even sleeps with Souta when he wants to or when he's not with some other girl and he doesn't even let Souta say no. This is the stupidest thing I've ever read! I know it's supposed to be a comedy, but it's really not written in good taste. I can't get behind someone being so selfish and expecting everyone to cater to every one of his whims and desires.

Especially the end! They'd been dating for SO LONG and it ends about how Akira "had hardcore sex with a girl" when he was away from Souta for 2 months. What even?! How can that be funny?

Don't waste your time.

This is the worst yaoi I've ever read and I mean it. Not only the yaoi genre, it's the worst of the worst manga I've ever read.
One guy is totally serious and so devoted while the other guy cheats on him like it's a natural thing. He doesn't even think that it's wrong. He spouts nonsense like " Sex with a girl and a guy is different You're the only guy I will have sex with!" and 'I can't help going out with girls because I'm still young, it's something I want to do'. And he continues to have sex with girls behind the other guy's back like it's totally normal and that ends the story.
I mean what the heck was that. The moral and common sense of this story are to be questioned. It left such a bad taste in my mouth. I wish I had never picked it up.

I couldn't stop laughing. Wow, this seriously cracked me up. Akira is like literally the worst person ever in existence. Good thing that I didn't take this too seriously. Although if I was Kouta I would most definitely be in prison right now for homicide.

What Did I Just Read?

Takanaga Hinako, what happened? It's safe to say that I totally regret reading this manga. I really love Takanaga sensei and I'm a huge fan of hers, but this has to be her worst work yet. It's definitely a huge disappointment. I didn't expect something this bad from a great mangaka like her.

The characters are what ruined it all for me. I really disliked Akira's and Kouta's personality, so there you have it. Akira was a rude jerk and Kouta was just dense and naive, an utter fool if you ask me. I'm thinking anyone who's read this would agree with me. And it's hilarious that basically everybody hates it.

The one mark I gave this manga was purely for its art alone. Stay away from this one.

Possibly the worst yaoi I ever read

I cant even describe how pointless this yaoi is. Nothing changes. The uke is still an douchebag and big cheaters, the only thing changes is the seme somehow immune to cheating now (?). The title is the opposite of the story, one guy who ignored his education got famous easily and one guy with good head gave it away to serve a jerk. I really questions the moral of this manga. This is something people should NEVER do. This is totally unhealthy and probably full of STDs.
