The first story was cute and not difficult to follow, but the second couple was so confusing. Not only the translation, but the characters are so difficult to follow because sometimes they look similar, and sometimes the way one character is drawn will change completely from page to page(down to hair color and style). ACK

I hope I'm not the only who found this very confusing to read, mainly because of the awkward translation. They did bug me to quite an extent, since what I hate most is incomprehension gaps in understanding what I'm doing. The stories themselves are okay, although almost boring and typical. There wasn't that much specialty about the characters either. This is a pretty average read I must say.

So cute :3 really liked the feel good nature of these stories. Also, the art, i love it, the uke's do not look girlish, they're not smaller or long haired or have delicate features. They look like real men *hooray*. So yeah, loving the art. Really found all the stories to be very sweet and romantic ^^ Enjoyed this manga more than i should have, just i just finished a series where the main character gets raped pretty much every other chapter o__o so something this light hearted and cute was just what I needed.

I really loved the story of the couple in Koi Ochi Rule. It was cute and not all that deep, but still they had great chemistry and it was fun. The rest isn't so great, but it's not bad. I wish there was more of the 2nd couple though.

My favorite couple was the first one! That's why I was bummed when I discovered that they only have a single chap euhh. As for the second couple, idk. I don't like how the seme turned his back on the uke. It seems like he was trying to create a mess or something.
And the last two one shots ARE MY THING!!!! I LOVE HOW THE SEMES SPOIK THEIR UKES!!!! >____<

Anthology - cute!

The first story was really cute! I'm sad that there wasn't more for these guys. I get that this is an anthology, though. It was a simple story, but it was emotional and fun to read.

The second story was a bit creepy. A professor hitting on a student is...well, really creepy. The two main guys in it were kinda cute, though. Their second chapter (chapter three) was pretty adorable.

The third story about the guy with the tie wasn't too bad. It was pretty sweet. Nothing unusual, but nice.

Haha! The start of the fourth story cracked me up! The one guy thinking about work while he slept with his boyfriend - I think we've all done that once or twice, am I right? wink

The fifths story was even shorter than most of the rest of them! Not bad, though.

The art was okay. H-scenes were nice. The first two couples had lovable characters but the other two were not soo awesome, but still enjoyable. Not too deep, but romantic and no girly uke. Something to calmly enjoy without too much drama.
Story 1....friends become lovers. Cute. Really sweet. Good seme.
Story 2....face fetish?? Anyway it was sweet and cute. The second chapter of it was soo touching!!~ and i loved the "im pregnant" part xD teasing seme and baka cute uke. And at the very end was an extra chapter with this couple and it was so hot x) extra of the two couples before and the sensei. So even he got a lover?? ^^
Story 3....that guy was useless xD but at least he had someone who would take care of him!! XD cute two~
Sotry 4....another useless uke xD and he has a good forgiving seme!! Sweet~

I didn't like the second couple. Takao annoyed me and Wakamiya then started to annoy me for being so led on so easily. But the high rating is for the other couples and oneshots. They were adorable and just right. Nothing new or commendable, but a good read nonetheless.

but well enough put together, and humourous in a way that didn't grate on my nerves. oneshots often leave me cold, but these had sufficient character development to at least make me care a little. the characters are a touch on the dense side, but at least nobody is girly and tsundere. the art is uncluttered (maybe a bit too much so regarding backgrounds) and mostly pleasant to look at -- maybe a bit too "safe"; viewpoints tend to be plain, there are no adventurous camera angles to heighten emotion. it'd be interesting to see what the mangaka does with a longer story, and as her art matures.
