I thought they were really cute! No huge dramatic scenes, and they were both nice people! And I loved that they were open about dating and it wasn't a big thing at all. I get so tired of that sometimes.

This was refreshing and adorable!

The extra story about the neighbor was pretty cute! Kind of brief, though...

Gosh, the art is so damn pretty~ <3
Out of all the BL I've ever read, this one is without a doubt, the fluffiest and sugariest one so far. I know for a lot of people that may be a turn-off, as there are no stupid misunderstandings, love-triangles, or non-con, but I love it.
Personally I don't really like those types of obstacles in manga anyway (love-triangles especially as they are so overused) but I do admit that usually there needs to be a little in the way of drama or slight conflict to keep the reader interested. Yet amazingly even though there's none of that in this manga, it doesn't feel lacking at all. It's a short, cute read that keeps you feeling happy all the way through, and there are times when that is exactly what's needed. I especially like having some feel-good yaoi such as this on hand after I've read a horrible manga.
Anyway, the main story and it's characters are cute, and the oneshot (I think it's chapter 4...?) is also good, although I would've liked a follow-up on them. Plus like I mentioned before the art is lovely... Tenzen-sensei always delivers bishies! So if you're looking for some spicy action-packed yaoi then this isn't it, but if you want something warm and comforting then this'll do the trick.

It was a bit cheesy but not so much to go into the negative.
I liked that the whole story was positive, nobody was forced and they treated each other like they were really in love.
It's just a nice change from all the BL out there that have rape, drama, ukes in pain and semes who treat them like crap.
The art style is also very nice.

This was extreme fluff. The first story was one chapter of them getting together and then three chapters of them fawning over each other, spouting off endless cheesy lines and blushing beyond excess. The oneshot wasn't any better. I can see how some people would like this as it is very sweet and the art is decent, but it wasn't for me. Just too cheesy.

The mangaka mentioned that she was aiming for a sweet story with no triangle and no estranged relationships. Let me tell you, she got it! I detest triangles now since usually, they're sole purpose is to "add fire" to the relationship. If you're a good writer, come up with a better obstacle.

Anyway, back to the story.

If you've had a bad day or read a depressing manga that frustrated you, you must read this! The story will totally lift up your mood. Most of the dialogue is pretty cheesy and there's no climax, but this is what makes it unique. Others might find it boring because they want drama. I've read a lot of yaoi so maybe that's why I really like this. I just kept on preparing myself, "something bad's going to happen soon... I hate this" but luckily, the mangaka kept the mood happy all through out. Even though it felt fast-paced you got a dose of a daily couple's life.

The other story was just the same. Very light.
