1) Best Partners
Akitsu was transferred to the East Kantou systems department a month ago. The sales person, Harada, dragged him to see the client together to rectify a problem. He got nervous and fainted.* Harada took care of him, but was still a devil at work. Akitsu became fond of Harada gradually. He got upset and fainted again when he found out that Harada went to a goukon. He confessed to Harada when he woke up to find Harada came back for him in the office. Would Harada accept him?

*It seems like he has asthmatic attacks and faints as a result.

2) Saying Love After Work (Initial)
Sequel to chapter 1.
Akitsu and Harada are now in a relationship, but since that one night nothing has happened. They have yet to even go on a date because work is keeping Harada busy. Tension builds when, along with the cancelled dates, Akitsu's senior from the head office transfers to their branch for a month.

3) Saying Love After Work (Final)
Part two of chapter 2.
Akitsu suddenly snaps from constantly being stood up by Harada and refuses to listen to anything Harada has to say, and Nakamoto's moving in?! What will Harada do... or does he not really care either way?

Akira and Masashi are best friends, but Masashi is graduating in a week. Akira fell in love with him at first sight and has been in love with Masashi for 10 long years. They end up switching school uniforms because Akira's pants are longer... but when Akira gets home with Masashi's uniform he gets aroused from the smell... and then Masashi walks in?!

Cute Office Workers Are Cute   
Rating: 6.5 / 10.0

These are all really cute but I liked the first one the most, then the childhood friends one, actually the childhood friends one was really nice, super cheesy though, well, they're all super cheesy. I liked how they wrapped up the main story, I thought the whole key thing was cute. Good art as well. They're really quick to get it on in this though so that's kind of a down point for me.

"Uniform Bonding"   
Rating: 8.0 / 10.0

The first couple are boring. There's a lot of stupid misunderstandings, and there is very little character development. Though after saying all that, the extra chapters about these two actually made me like it a little more, so 7/10.

The second story ("Uniform Bonding") is much more to my liking! I adore childhood friends-become-lovers stories so that is the main reason why I liked this pair. Both Akira and Masashi are such loveable characters, and during their sex scene the love and desperation they have for each other becomes clear. It's very cute. Plus there is a caught-in-the-act moment which I like (though it makes me cringe lol) I would've liked to see more of these two. 9/10.

The third couple were kinda cute too. Better than the first story, but didn't shine as much as the second couple. So 7.5/10.

So rating the manga as a whole, I'd give it 8/10. Some cute moments, pretty art, and decent plot, with one great chapter squished in the middle.

Definitely a likable manga- nothing extraordinary, but that didn't really hurt the overall appeal of the manga. The art is clean and expressive, and the panelling is easy to follow and clean. The story, although not remarkable, still has little traits and details that make them seem special when you're reading it. My only complaint is that the smut happened a little fast- and not in the way I would have expected.
The story seemed like it was panning out slowly, with the mangaka introducing us first to the characters' work relationship (programmer and salesperson). From the way it was going, I thought she would develop that more, and delve further into their friendship... but then it was like, BOOM confession BOOM smut... I was like... did not see that coming.
Still, it was entertaining, and definitely not a bad read. The characters were surprisingly likable. I think part of it was because they were both capable people. The mangaka introduced the characters when they were working, and seeing Akitsu as a really good programmer, and Harada as a good salesperson made them seem just... better. Haha, I guess I just really dislike it when characters are lazy and useless. Also, I have to say, unlike the reviewer below me, I didn't find the female scene that bad- it made sense since the two hadn't been seeing each other for a while. It was done pretty naturally, so I didn't mind.
Overall, something surprisingly likable and fun to read, despite some obvious flaws.

Cliche misunderstanding with female scene   
Rating: 4.0 / 10.0

I'm sorry to say that this one feels overly cliche. Just like what jungen8 said, the relationships here all arrive at confession (rather quick), and then suddenly having sex. I can't feel any emotions coming out from myself when I went through those sex scenes.

And to make matters worse, there's the situation/scene of misunderstanding of seeing partner with a female. Outbursts of rage, and the other saying, "Listen to me!".

If you like sex scenes, and don't mind cliches, then you might still enjoy this. But as for me... I'm probably not going to re-read this again.

Liked it more than I expected...

This one has a lot of good things going for it - decent art (I'm a sucker for oversize eyes), a healthy amount of angst, plot that mostly makes sense, and plenty of entertaining smex.

I hadn't come across a uke quite like the one in the main story before, with his mixture of panic attacks/insecurity, and surprising backbone. I personally didn't find him irritating, but others might. He is actually the reasonI bumped my rating up to a 9

My only problem is really a personal pet peeve - every single relationship went from confession to full sex within 2-3 pages - and then they work out the problems in their relationship
