Sayonara, Itoshi no My Friend  
Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
Tatsuo is a makeup artist for a fashion photographer and is sick and tired of the models fawning over the new hairstylist, Haga. One morning, he comes across one of the models running out of Haga's room with tears in her eyes and has a long talk with him about how rude and antisocial he is. That's when Tatsuo realizes, Haga doesn't really know how to treat others and doesn't even have a single friend - until now?

Also includes the spin-off "Moshi Koi da Toshite" (If This is Love, Goodbye My Dear Friend).

To his co-workers, Hara Makoto appears to be the perfect elite--efficient, unruffled, and flawless, unlike his clumsy and easily flustered subordinate Mizusawa Souta. It'd be hard to find greater opposites anywhere and yet when the puppy-like Mizusawa confesses to his idol, no one's more surprised than Mizusawa when Shin accepts and they start dating. But perhaps life is relative and no matter how elite you are there's always someone else you just can't measure up to and sometimes the most hopeless person move mountains if the right person believes in them. Can Mizusawa help Shin get out of the shadow of his little brother and can Shin let Mizusawa bask in the warmth of his heart?

Hopefully someone translates this soon! Really want to read it in English. It actually took a long time before anything sexy happened but really worth reading. The uke is absolutely adorable~

The art is lovely, and the characters are sweet; I really like both Tatsuo and Haga. Haga is so cute sometimes, and Tatsuo is just plain likable. I like how the mangaka made their relationship grow from strangers to friends to lovers. It's nice to see their relationship develop and to see Haga start showing his emotions and start learning some social norms and common courtesy, haha. I really like the way the mangaka played out their development- it wasn't too sudden or too slow. Recommended!

It's surprisingly good! I just hoped that all those chapters where focused on the first couple, i didn't read the older brother's story. The art is pretty cool, at first i was hesitant to read it because of the title, but like i said it's surprisingly good. The development is not slow and not fast, i was surprised that the uke can cry and laugh lol, but his cold demeanor is cool, ahh i wish they have more sweet moments.

I've been waiting for this manga to be completely scanlated for such a long time... really... because I was totally head over heels for Kawaisa Amatte Nanika ga Hyakubai and honestly I am disappointed. Yup. It's not half good as Kawaisa... I mean the idea is good but the whole story wasn't well developed. Everything's going slowly. Also there wasn't hidden meanings. In the end it's shallow and silly. I had the feeling that something's wrong with this story, not sure what exactly... kind of feeling when you wish for the story to end as soon as possible. Maybe because the main character was boring? I hoped that he'll be cold and indifferent on the outside but interesting/warm/extraordinary/or whatever inside, but I was wrong. Haga is the same cold, gloomy and EXTREMLY boring person on the outside and inside as well. I couldn't bring myself to like this character (it's really rare for me).

well if you don't have anything to do, you can read this manga, the art is really nice and it's not that bad after all, but don't expect too much from this yaoi wink

The first story in this is only vaguely less off-putting than the second. The second had somewhat more psychotic expressions and was just super over the top. Neither story was something I would consider good though. They were both very unnatural feeling.

For most yaoi readers I suppose this manga might be considered all cute and adorable and whatnot, but I seriously couldn't digest it without having a stomachache. I can handle cliches, though not when it's blatantly all over the place like this. The cuteness is also certainly not my type, and Gosh can the dialogues get any more horridly childish. Kinda like a ten-year-old trying to write angst and melodrama and failing miserably. In the end I feel like I've just watched a bad piece of drama. Even the artwork gets on my nerves; I don't remember Kawaisa Amatte Nanika ga Hyakubai's art bothering me this much before, although it didn't please me either. Probably because the mangaka had tried to insert too many 'pained' expressions in here that it cringes me to no end. When it comes to sketchy artworks I'm more of a fan of Shoowa and Yamagata Satomi. I admit the cute moments are there, but this manga's just too dull for me.
