The sky was a bright shade of blue on the first day of university and Ritsuki Ban hopes for a fresh start. As mysterious past regrets continue to linger in his mind, Ritsuki collides into a man who takes on an immediate interest in Ritsuki’s looks— a man whom he later discovers, is one of his new professors! The confident Professor Takagi does nothing to hide his feelings towards Ritsuki; however the reclusive Ritsuki refuses to become teacher’s pet. As Ritsuki and Takagi find themselves sky gazing together one day, they are moved by each others expressions and begin to find out more about each other.

Wow, this has no reviews yet?! You really are missing out on the good stuff, guys!
This manga is beautiful. It hasn't come very far yet, but I'm already addicted. It's not particularly original, but I don't know, it just has something very special about it.
The art is mesmerizing and fits well with the somewhat sad environment that always surrounds the main characters, especially Ritsuki. And that's precisely what I like about it: it's just so angsy, for some reason, so heart-wrenching...I love that feeling! It has those subtle things and metaphors that just make it perfect!
Also, both the characters' personalities suit my taste: while Ritsu's the silent, confused, struggling uke, he's not weak, whiny or flamboyant. On the opposite, he's cold and seme-ish at parts. Takagi is also my type: pushy, direct and focused, yet caring and a little sarcastic. Maybe a little cruel too, even if it's not intentional, since he seems like a player, because he plans every move, which makes Ritsu struggle even more - and, therefore, makes their relationship more delicious than ever.
Their relationship is basically based on unexpressed feelings, which makes me on the edge of each page waiting for more. Which means I can't wait for more...
Really, you sould read it. There's much yet to be seen~!
Oh, but the only thing I do miss is a decent kiss between them. C'mon, we weren't even given that much yet - rather, it hasn't been shown properly.

Simple plot and themes but good drama.

This is my first manga from Shiro, and her first available yaoi (not including all her Doujinshi's) that she wrote and illustrated.

Shiro explains how she wanted to do a BL with her favourite type of uke (grumpy and tsundere) and seme (laid-back). Pretty much, that's how I would describe this; a quiet loner student peaks the interests of a new easy-going teacher.

I like the pacing; it's slow and doesn't rush into the relationship, and, as the story progresses the drama starts to unfold. Shiro explains how she wanted to create "a gap in mentality between the two" and I found that my first impressions did a 360° by the end of the first arc.

The second arc, "You Through A Kaleidoscope", was about childhood friends. Again, Shiro starts the story out pretty straight-forward and slowly introduces the drama/backstory; for added emotions.

Both arcs have subtle comedy, great art and interesting characters. I like both arcs equality and found both have the same plot structure; starts out simple and ends with real emotions. You will not find your typical BL here folks. Yes, it may be based on the same-old punchlines, however, I found that the drama is what makes it appealing and worthy of reading.

I'm slightly disappointed. I found the uke to be a drag, with little to no personality at all which was masqueraded behind a 'cold' stock character personality, the typical angsty 'emo' kid. I imagined his background with the delinquents and violence would've revealed a greater backstory, but it felt flat, and nothing was really explained. If I had to put it bluntly, he's boring.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Also, something that bothered me was when the seme called that side-character-uke-rival-stalker creepy for obvious stalking reasons. My thoughts: So, what? You, a professor seeking out one of your students, pressuring him and forcing yourself into his life only 'cause he's your type isn't creepy at all? Okay.

And I know most reviewers said development was slow. But it wasn't. The pace of the manga was slow, which I thought was well done until the sudden escalation. This story only occurred over a few days, so if you ask me, sexing your student within the first few weeks or so is pretty fast to me. It felt somewhat predatory to me but then again he's a student in uni/college, so it was probably just me and due to the fact that the uke just seems like your typical kid who doesn't know what the hell is going on and just lets the seme walk all over him.

The positives. The art, of course, and the pacing(as much as I hated the quick development.) I liked the moments when they were together looking at the sky and scenery, with the camera, which were perfect slice-of-life moments. I also have to congratulate on the fact that the uke wasn't annoying or whiny, but I must digress, boring. The seme, ignoring his creepier moments since it's a yaoi, because what are you going to do if not suddenly force yourself into someone's life to start a story?, especially when it's the 'forbidden student teacher relationship'(so I'll let it slide), had a fun personality that was somewhat likeable. I guess one could say it was a nicer, refreshing and colourful one that balanced against the bore of an uke.

(The second story was typical and forgettable, childhood friends, both obviously in love with eachother but for petty reasons hiding it, creating misunderstandings and hurting people's feelings. You're better off skipping it.)

I found this manga in a bookstore and bought it because the art made me curious, and I'm so glad I did.
This story is very sweet with realistic characters, (not like those whiney ukes or macho-semes), develops slowly and has many unexpected turns. The side story, who has nothing to do with the main story, isn't as awesome, but still good in its own way.
The only thing that bothered me, was that the main story is a real softcore yaoi, meaning you won't get much action there. It kind of fits the atmosphere of the story, but I wouldn't say no to a Doujinshi either C:

Usually I don't dig teacher-student/old-young relationships, but in this story, the main focus is on an entirely different topic, it isn't very conspicuous ;).

All in all, this manga is totally worth the read, awesome even tough it's the author's first own work, and has a very pleasant art style. You should definitely buy it!
