Honestly i'm into bishies couple but the first couple in this story is perfect! They understand and accepts each other flaws and their life is funny, their insecurities and how they dealt on them. I really enjoy this manga

This mangaka isn't afraid to touch on less "pretty" characters and I appreciate that. We can't all be muscular bishounen, and the insecurities that Yamaji harbors are very real.

The art is gorgeous, as always, and the plot is fluffy and cute. It's a little shallow, but then it's a you manga...

I love Naono Bohra's works. They have a sense of uniquiness. Most of your stories don't seem to follow that oh so generic protocol like most others do. Her works seem to be different special in a way. But I"ve notice with my friends that read Yaoi, they either love her works or don't. There's a spectrum I see when it comes to appreciating her work.
One of my friends is a big time Yaoi fan and isn't to picky when comes to choosing manga to read but when it comes to Naono is like a huge distaste. =(
Anyway whatever floats your boat. But I most say Naono Bohra is awesome. I hope to one day have my own place and have my own library, and her works will be my first choice.

This might be my favorite of Naono Bohra's longer series (rather than a bunch of one-shots). It's one of the few where the story doesn't have sex of questionable consent or the guardian relationship to start it off. I like a lot of her stuff, but those two things often keep me from really loving it. Plus, you know, cute oyaji romance story.

I was surprised that I liked the fantasy one-shot. It's a pretty different sort of story than the rest in the volume and I normally avoid fantasy altogether unless it's realistic fantasy, but this one wasn't bad at all. It did kind of bother me that the inequal power balance of the relationship, especially at the beginning, was never really addressed, but that's something I've started to get used to in manga, particularly BL.

A Perfect Profile of Naono-Sensei   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

This collection offers a little bit of everything that Naono-sensei excels at: fantasy, insecurities, older men, long term relationships, rough 'beat' up looks and scenes, and her signature mark of manly men that have a bishie feel! All her characters, no matter how fantastical, take on a real humanistic feeling.

If I was an English language publisher, this collection would be top priority for licensing!

I prefer Naono Bohra's realistic/school life works and this title is one of the ones I plan to buy from Yesasia as soon as I can!! Very cute and the imperfections make things more realistic.
