From September Scanlations:

Akira’s grown up thinking of his friend Itsuki as something of a little brother—until Itsuki confesses he’s been in love with Akira for years. But while Itsuki is content to keep their relationship the same as it’s always been while he waits for Akira to process the affections he’s just been presented with, Akira finds himself growing increasingly—and inexplicably—irritated with the cool demeanor Itsuki manages to adopt in front of someone he supposedly is in love with.

Monthly dose of random Yaoi...   
Rating: 6.0 / 10.0

It's 3:30am where I'm at and felt like a round of hot man-sex with inane plot wouldn't hurt. Not looking for anything deep or slow-paced helps with the decision. Heh.

First Story- It's what's summarised above. Akira, our older (but baby-faced) uke (OFC), gets confessed to by his childhood acquaintance and four years junior, Itsuki (Hottie Seme). The first few pages set up the pace but I was totally not expecting:
Spoiler Warning:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the Light D/s that goes on. LOL. The light dub-con, I did expect tho haha. Non-graphic sex happens with a dash of fluff and possessiveness thrown in.

Story continues. Seme is his usual possessive manipulative self (lol, not as dark as it sounds), uke is his usual adorably flustered self. Sex in the second chapter is more graphic but pretty meh.

I honestly didn't mind this story or the characters. Loved the art, liked the characters to a degree, didn't care about the non-plot, so I'm most likely gonna forget I've read this if not for marking this Finished Reading.

Second Story- My first thought was, OMG! Iwase! (hot guy that was introduced in the first story as Akira's uni friend).

Due to circumstances, Iwase meets Ryou (Itsuki's HS friend). I think the reason why people responded to this story more was that there was more time to get to know the characters and watch them start liking each other, unlike the first couple.

Because of the slightly fluffy beginning, I did not expect Spoiler Warning

Ryou (our uke) to be cut from the same piece of manipulative cloth as Itsuki haha.

LOL. Still, that confession came out of nowhere. I mean, at least Itsuki and Akira have had a whole childhood backstory. Ryou falls in love in his first meeting with Iwase (who is such a pure hearted White Knight type), and Iwase (our seme) confesses after their, what, second meeting?

I liked Iwase more than I liked Ryou, which sucked because I couldn't bring myself to care for Ryou.

The sex was even more 'meh' than the first couple's LOL. The dirty talk was better tho, but that's not really saying much haha.

Overall, this compilation is not for people looking for a more substantial story with actual character development. Also not for people looking for hot sexy mansex (like me) because the sex barely spanned two pages haha I like my PWP yaoi sex scenes drawn-out and graphic.

The art is really nice - hot bishies and there's tension when the panel needs for it but unfortunately I can't say the same for the story. I've read other works of this mangaka and despite her good premise, her storytelling is always weak. Sensei needs to work more in that area.

Skip the first two chapters

I hope anyone who's given this a really poor rating sticks with it past the first two chapters. The second couple is far more interesting and entertaining (and free of the stupid ~possessive seme~ problematic stereotypes while including a really fun, flirty uke), and the third isn't bad either. The first couple is pretty horrible, but the reader's reward for sticking past their two chapters are the other two couples.

Giving it a 7/10 for beautiful art and two fun couples despite the hackjob that is the first couple.

Ahh, this wasn't good. The relationship development was incredibly phony and the characters weren't likable or relatable at all. The art is clean and precise, though nothing to write home about. Definitely just another for the bad yaoi stereotype pile. Boo

Edit: read the second couple in ch. 3-4 and it is somewhat better. It's still just average, but I wasn't miserable reading it.
