There are several shorter stories in as well as the one lending its name to the volume, but they didn't really stand out to me. However, the "Good-for-Nothing" story (three chapters, plus a very short epilogue of sorts) was really cute. It's got me wanting more stories where one half of the couple already has a kid, though I'm not sure I ever really thought much about that kind of thing before.

Well, the second oneshot was just plotless smut & slapstick comedy, but that's a good combo if you ask me. ^^
The first oneshot was interesting. It was cute and I enjoyed it, but I will likely forget it entirely by next week.
The main story, however. The main story was great. I really connected with the characters - their feelings came across beautifully through their facial expressions and their actions. It didn't bite off more than it could chew, all loose ends were cleanly tied, nothing rapey, and it really did feel like the characters actually were in love with each other. I thought it was very sweet and well-written.

I almost dropped this manga during the first 2 chapters due to how cliche and uninspiring they were. The progress of reading through them was really painful and tedious. The main story I could say is better to some degree, although still lacks a lot more to make it at least decent. This sure was an unexpected 'surprise' in a negative way, since I was kinda hoping for something great coming from the mangaka of Hatsuai. I guess even the greatest artist has their bad day.

So the first 3 stories were... bad. (I'd rate them around 2-3) I thought I would drop it. But I kept reading and well, the 4th one (with Odagiri and the manga-ka father) was really good. I really enjoyed reading, though it was predictable. Art was really good and it was cute. So I really loved that one

I did not like this mangaka too much until now. However this manga was really cute and absolutely hilarious! The plot was easy to understand, nothing you would not expect but I can say that I like all characters, the art improved a lot and is able to show a lot of funny moments without many dialogues. Giving a 10 is probably overrating but I dont think this manga deserves a 1!

If you are looking for a simple comedy with one or two little twists, you should really try this one smile

Just skip the first two chapters and go onto the last four. I like the characters and storyline. I would like to see if their son will have a story of his own too. ^^

This was better than expected in lots of ways, with the sensei-parent relationship a thing that (I've) rarely seen before. The editor was very funny, but it says a lot about the manga if your faverorate character was a woman from a yaoi manga... All in all, nice for a little enjoyment, not for those who want proper yaoi-ful manga.

I really enjoyed the last story about the mangaka and the teacher--God, being a mangaka must suck... Haha I was hardcore lol-ing when Odagiri tried to help with coloring the manga characters

Though the art isn't like that of the cover, unfortunately. It's still well done. The first story is sort of boring, but the second one has more substance to it. However, both stories are typical for yaoi, but don't let that stop you from reading it. It's got some really funny bits and the drawings are cute.
