A new student enrolls in Kosukeís sophomore class in high school. As a perfect foil to Kosukeís short stature, Raku is tall, manly and popular with girls. Although Kosuke initially feels jealous, he soon learns of Rakuís secret and is asked to keep it a secret. Raku finds himself taking an interest in Kosuke and they begin to grow closer. This is a high school romantic comedy about an odd couple!

This was a genuine pleasure to read. It was well paced and the development of the leads' relationship felt natural and sincere. Kosuke is a bit hyperactive, but his antics do not feel obnoxious - I found myself smiling at the exaggerated expressions that Okyuama came up with. I just wish the quality of the scanlation was better. Hopefully this will get an English print soon, or a group will rescanlate from the original.

It's a volume-length oneshot so it's longer than a short one chapter oneshot, but after you finish it, you realize that it wasn't that long at all, and will want moar ; v ;

I love Okuyama Puku's style SO MUCH. It's really cute, and I feel it's unique in that it sets her apart from other styles. Okuyama Puku draws the cutest chibi faces ever!

It's a shounen-ai, so nothing explicit. If you've read the mangaka's other works, Caramel and Warning! Whispers of Love, then this one is an in between of them in regards to the intimacy. But, well, I'm one more for fluff and slice of life-ish stuff, rather than a sex-focused plot, so if you prefer the latter, then maybe this won't satisfy you? BUT I still recommend it anyways! The romance isn't rushed and most of it is really cute fluff, and at times hyper. The main charas are likable and the development comes at a nice pace, imo. The amount of other side characters makes me feel like they could've also developed had the story been longer. Anyways, the focus is still on the main two though, if straying storylines is bothersome to you. Hopefully the romantic parts make you squee as much as I did~

I wish I had an english version hardcopy of this manga, but only have a digital copy. I will most likely buy it again if it was released as a book, or I may buy the Japanese volume, so long as it hasn't sold out. I urge anyone to give it a try, and other Okuyama Puku works. Although, maybe the fact that none of her works have free access keeps her stuff under the radar from other english readers. ANYWAYS, She's already gotten 3 things licensed and released so here's hoping for more! I'm dying to read Ichi Ni no San!.....

I've been reading so many yaoi/shounen ai that my heart barely beats for intimate scene anymore (not really) but this manga really make my heart go doki doki even they didnt kiss. Definitely recommended.

Such a lovely manga! Very cute and fairly unique characters (not many BL characters look like hamsters haha ^^) with a nice amount of light comedy too. One moment you'll be giggling, then next you'll be saying awww <3
To be honest I tend to read more yaoi than shounen-ai (and if i'm being even more honest I would've loved it if we got to see their first time together, as I imagine that would've been a very funny yet incredibly sweet turning point in their relationship) but I have to say this made me swoon a lot more than most yaoi i've read. Funnily enough it really did make my heart "bathump" at times!
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Especially the scene in the nurses office (that was so cute.. I kept hoping for it to lead to a kiss..) and of course at the end when they were at the train station (finally my waiting paid off!)
It really made me feel as though they truly fell in love with each other as the romance wasn't rushed or shallow, it was wonderfully paced which made it all the more believable. Well after having said that, I think both of them clearly felt something for each other practically from the start, although neither of them really knew what that feeling was until a little later. So seeing their relationship develop in such a way really impressed me. Like I said earlier I would've liked to see them take things a bit further or maybe even a slight time-skip (I would've loved to see if Kosuke ever grew taller as he got older haha), but it had such a great ending that I don't mind too much XD
All in all, I thought it was such a lovely story that I just couldn't stop smiling from start to finish ^__^

I was really surprised by this one. It's really sweet. The characters are exaggerated but in a sort of cute, comical way that feels a little unique for bl. It wasn't ridiculously funny, but it was light hearted with good flow which kept me entertained. The main thing I appreciated about this story was that their relationship develops so normally for their age! Very awkward and it takes them quite a while to sort out their feelings/relationship, but not in a cliche, tooth pulling kind of way. It's hard to know if someone else shares the same feelings as you sometimes and scary to take the plunge to find out, and I think this showed that well.

I really loved this story, its the cutest and funniest Shounen Ai I have read in awhile. They couple, Raku and Kosuke, are playful and adorable; making the relationship really believable and realistic. I wish the ending was a little longer to see how the future would be, but a great manga either way.

This is so cute! The relationship between Raku and Kosuke is so sweet; they don't rush anything. They actually start as friends then develop feelings for eachother, something which makes the relationship more believable. I enjoyed it so much that I kinda wished it was longer.

Is not scanlated yet, but you can read it on emanga.
