From September Scanlations:

With a father who's a singer, a mother who's a movie star, and an older brother, Shougo, who's the lead vocalist for the super-popular band The Crusherz, Sena Izumi, an otaku college student is the only dull one born into this super famous and talented family. He loves Magical Girl LalaLulu and is working hard to become a mangaka, but one day he winds up appearing in a TV commercial he just can't turn down. There, he's reunited with Ichijou Ryouma, the super-popular young actor he costarred with on a project ten years prior.

I've had this on my "to read" list for sooooo long, and I eventually got around to reading it today... and oh my god I absolutely love it. I'm seriously annoyed at myself for not reading this gem sooner!
The art is just gorgeous, and all the characters are extremely loveable -- the main 4 all have their own little quirks...
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Izumi is a cute, easily bribed otaku; Shougo has a major brother complex (although not a sexual one thank goodness); Rei is a tsundere mother-hen figure; and Ryouma is like an adorable puppy. And the icing on the cake is that both semes are actually caring guys, one of whom even turns down sex! ( ゚ Д゚)

I honestly can't describe just how great this manga is, so just give it a try yourself if you're after a feel-good story. It'll definitely leave you with a warm fuzzy feeling and a goofy grin on your face ^__^

Loveable characters and nice story. The art is also very pretty and even though Izumi
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
dressed up like a girl, he doesn't come across as too girly strangely enough

I'm not really a fan of manga with idols or actors because the characters usually have an air of being too cool to live and it isn't just that enjoyable to read. There is some of that in this, but it's done in a rather amusing way and the characters are charming and funny and don't come across as insufferable jerks. Ryouma is very endearing and kind of goofy despite having a cool reputation, as is Izumi's brother Shougo and the whole rest of the family. Izumi is interesting because he's not your normal pushover uke. I also love Rei a lot for his straight forward attitude (and enjoy his story with Shougo a lot in Back Stage!) Really lovely manga with great characters so far.

When I was reading the latest chapter I suddenly realized I was smiling the whole time. THAT'S the kind of manga it is - really funny, sweet and adorable. Definitely not something to take too seriously, but so, so enjoyable.

i freaking love this manga. the drawings are perfect, the sex scenes are awesome (teehee) and that its yaoi.
but as the director guy pointed out in chapter 20, ryouma doesn't trust izumi. its nice that he gets worried and all but sometimes you gotta let go and trust sometimes but i can understand why he feels that way because of the sexual harassments but ryouma should know izumi and what kind of person he is.

as of chapter 3, it's very funny!!! I love the main character, he's clumsy, can't draw, and is trying to achieve dreams that are unobtainable. I actually love the all-famous family, because when you look at it, lots of famous people marry famous people, and famous people have famous children, etc etc. The art is really shojo, but I actually don't read a lot of shojo-esque yaoi mangas, so this is rather refreshing! I like the pacing of it, its moving right along. I love the whole 180 thing that this manga has going on, the main guy's life takes a 180, the love interest's personality takes a 180, its very fascinating!

Love this!
Ryouma is such an awesomely good guy! I expected this to go a totally different route than it did.
The main couple is super cute, even though I feel sort of bad for Ryouma because Izumi is so slow, but on the other hand, seeing Ryouma try again and again and put a real effort in here is so nice and refreshing, a total change from the many yaoi mangas where semes are real jerks to the ukes!
Ryouma really made it into my list of favorites semes because he's just amazing!
There's not enough semes out there who will say "no, I won't take your body just cause I can, I want your heart as well!" really.........
The only thing I could say that bugs me is that there's not enough out yet of the story! I can't wait to see them end up together, have Izumi be all in love with Ryouma finally!

Read this if you want an incredibly sweet seme, a cute otaku uke and a plot that's gonna make you smile and laugh!

I love this manga (and not just because it's yaoi)! I love it because it has an actual plot line and is very sweet and funny ^^ The artwork is also very good (it takes talent to draw badly when you are used to drawing well lol) I recommend this very highly!

The art is a 7, but I give the story a 10 and so are the characters. This was a refreshing change from the usual yaoi I came across, since Ryouma not only say he cares about Izuma's feelings towards him but shows it by not engaging in emotionless sex, despite Izuma's supposedly being "alright" with it. It also has some really funny moments. The Izuma and Ryouma couch scene was priceless. I almost feel out of my chair when Shougo cut in like he did. Even Re is likable character. Izuma's parents are the only characters I find really fustrating since they seem to be only interested in their own career advancement than having having concern for their son, who, by the way, makes a awesome looking chick.

Honestly, the fact that Izumi looks so much like a girl really turned me off from this story. But I liked the summary, so I decided to read on and I did not regret. smile It is a refreshing yaoi manga for me. The main characters did not immediately jump into the sex and stuff like that. Izumi is absolutely funny and adorable. I actually like his character. smile Ryouma is more different than I thought too. I thought he would just be the cool actor type, but his personality is really funny x) I love his honesty, lol, and his burst of cries, LOL. It makes him look more lame, but more lovable. biggrin I'm actually glad that he's not the typical 'cool and calm' type. smile
Anyways, this story so far have made me laugh a lot. and I like it a lot for its freshness. I hope it continues to be that way. smile
