He was my lover in High school, my beautiful, malicious Shinobu-sempai. He was also the one who took away everything, whether it was my first kiss, or my first time. Then, after the graduation ceremony, he completely disappeared. Four years have passed since then, and right when I thought I’d already forgotten all memories about him, he suddenly appeared in front of my eyes, more beautiful and charming than ever… Now, even though he’s willing to open his body for everyone, the only thing he gives me is his cruel words. But no matter what, I still want to be by his side… So I started working a part-time job at the bar where he’s working…

Worst yaoi over

I created an account just to write a bad comment about it. Its just about a man-whore uke and a pathetic seme who kept chasing him.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The uke slept around even in the past when they are dating and disappeared after graduation. After the reunion, the uke admitted he cheated in the past and now he is having sex with different men right in front of the seme's face. Then he talks to the seme later like it was nothing and even asks him to clean up the place. It turns out that he was in love with the seme so he was afraid and ran away. PSH, please, all that and u gave the most cliche plot about dont want him to be gay? I felt because of characters like him that homophobes thinks gays are just nasty perverts who are fine with anyone

If you dont mind messed up characters or cheating then feel free to read it. I cant stand it. It was so bad that I couldnt read any other work from this author because the art just reminds me of this awful story.

I dont really like this one. The seme, Naoyuki, chase after the uke too much and i feel so sorry for him. I dont like the reason the uke suddenly dumped him in the past and then dump him over and over again. I hate it. Naoyuki who loves the uke so much and try so hard looks too pitiful

The end is what make i feel better. Two oneshots are also good
So, its just ok, not very to my like. I give it a 7.5 score

I had this on my manga directory for.... a few years now, 2 I think, and I always postponded reading it. Too bad!!! coz it just sucked me in. I read it without stop! amazing.. It's not like it's THE BEST EVER or something, but there's just something about it... that's so captivating. I guess that that's what makes a good manga in to one.. and a good mangaka too!

the two oneshots here are perfect little vignettes; they didn't leave me unfulfilled like so many oneshots; thinking "damn, too short", or "what was the point", or "thanks for the PWP; i don't care about sex between people i don't get to at least know a little". no, these are tiny little doors into the complex stories of people, allowing a glimpse that tells a lot in just a few scant pages. especially "let's forget" -- the two characters are also present in the main story, but i read the oneshot before that, so i didn't know about them. but i want to know more. she said she wants to write more about them; i hope that happens.

the title story uses a common plot, that of high school love abruptly ended but never forgotten, but it doesn't use a lot of the really annoying tropes with it, and i like the characters, especially naoyuki because he basically doesn't do anything stupid, and the supporting cast which are all well-drawn in their own right for such a short story. it's maybe a little overly dramatic, but then i can never quite wrap my mind around people with the sort of love that gets left in the dust, ground down plenty, and still they pursue it, against the apparent wish of the other person. i couldn't love that way; it feels stalkerish -- if somebody leaves me, i expect that they know themselves sufficiently to make that decision rationally. primarily i don't really understand why shinobu left naoyuki (feel free to PM me if you grok it). i shall have to read it again before rating.
