One evening while hanging out, Oku confesses to his friend and neighbor, Kanbayashi, that he is not attracted to women at all and thinks that he might be gay. One thing leads to another, and the two find themselves between the sheets sharing a night of passion. From that day on, though, the pair act as if nothing at all happened. Kan goes on to date a string of women while Oku begins seeing several different men. Three years on, things come to a head during Christmas break, with secrets laid bare between them. Where will things go from there? Two university students explore love, sexuality and friendship in this gentle coming of age tale.

Koi no Chime or Honki ni Natta Merryman which is a collection of short stories from which only Koi no Chime has been translated, is pretty good. I wonder if the whole volume had been translated, or if I could find the whole volume, how much more, or less, I would like it because in all probability there's an extra story for the first one.
Still, this one was pretty good in it's way as well. Confessing one’s love can be a most difficult task. And I really appreciate stories that try to deal with this theme in a tender, and sensible way, also if there's some good humor then all the better.

This was a pleasant read. At times I felt a bit exhausted reading it because the characters tend to cause needless problems for themselves. It was quite a cute setting though and the characters were likeable. All in all the plot was okay too. The only problem with this manga is that it's so average: mediocre art and forgettable storyline.

What brought the rating up for be was the fact that the story spanned quite a few years and there was some depth to it. It was believable, and though a lot of it was somewhat mundane, there was a certain simplistic charm to it like it could all have been real.

The shorts at the end were silly and forgettable but I'd recommend the main story for folks who enjoy love stories set in the day-to-day lives of these characters.
