Being a virgin employee, Yamashita had dreamed to sleep at least once with his most favorite gay porn star, Hikaru. From there, he has an unbelieveable encounter when he left from work! During the middle of the intercourse, however, it turns out that the man isn't Hikaru, but someone called Asazaki Ryuuichi...! "...Who on earth are you?!"

I can't understand what's going on in the author's head. What do we have here? Rape, actual, painful, pitiful, tears-inducing rape. What do we have after that? Rape again, blackmailing and abuse (psychological more than physical, but abuse nonetheless). By the way, I consider sex to which the other person agrees only because of blackmailing to be rape too, because they wouldn't agree otherwise. And after all that we suddenly get 'Well, we're going out, aren't we?' How can a person who's blackmailing their partner say that they're going out? And how is it permissible to BLAME the person you raped for mixing you up with another? This is such a pure case of 'the person who got raped just can't understand what's REALLY going on and gets dragged on because of that'. TBH, I read the warnings and thought, 'Oh, it should be OK, the comments are not always to the point'. Well, now I can see that in this case they are. Because, for one, if you know that your partner is scared of you, your reaction shouldn't be 'doing something to scare him even more'. If you're inducing pain, your reaction shouldn't be 'just continues with what he was doing'. A human being who induces pain without reason and without consent, and gains pleasure from it, and doesn't even apologise, is not a normal human being.

It's good and the twist escalated quickly i didn't even expected it. The story is sweet my heart is thumping on this lovers, the seme is a tsundere i think and he is so inlove in the uke who is so cute. I wish it was a bit longer where it shows how the seme will be jealous or something, the art is really my type, it's clean. I hope for more and this is worth reading.
I don't really understand why so many complaints about rape and blackmail, especially when thinking about how things started between them. Yeah, the seme is a little beast but that's fun for a seme, at least from my point of view. Actually, I was yearning for a guy that is a bit abusive since I got bored with the overly-sweet relationship development. Perhaps in a real situation it would not be alright, but yaoi is a fantasy world and I didn't find his actions despicable at all.
Beautiful art but so disappointed in the romance
The art is really nice but the story's plot is underdeveloped. I honestly can't comprehend how Yamashita can see his relationship with Ryuuichi as love when it was Ryuuichi who blackmails him into having sex consistently. That kind of love seems superficial and Stockholm syndrome-based, really.
I'm with @FrostyNoire on this one. Someone said that there are no more rapes after the first chapter but that's a lie.

Having sex with someone absolutely drunk IS rape.
And there a many other abusive situations besides this one. Not to mention the total lack of development. The reason I didn't give a lower rating is because a I reaaaly like the artwork...
Rape, blackmail, and then...love? Only in yaoi
There's rape and blackmail in this manga, no question about it. And yet apparently the uke falls in love with the seme anyway - for no good reason, since there's no indication that Ryuuichi was ever considerate of Yamashita before Yamashita fell for him. In fact, what's disturbing is that Yamashita is portrayed as being desperate for love - perhaps so desperate that he would cling to the first man who showed any interest in him, even if that interest is to force sex on him at every opportunity. Then there's also no reason given for the turnaround in Ryuuichi's attitude. No explanation at all as to why and how Ryuuichi fell for Yamashita.
All the above leads to my poor rating for this volume. But there is some redemption.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The story deals with issues like bullying and ostracism in school because of discrimination against homosexuality, and the trauma that follows through to adulthood. It depicts a man who never identified as homosexual coming to terms with loving another man (though that's questionable since Ryuuichi only admitted it in front of Yamashita). It portrays Yamashita's loneliness and idolisation of a porn actor with sensitivity rather than ridicule. And the way Yamashita's inner dialogue and feelings is handled is actually done in a way that's quite touching.
Too bad there isn't any attempt to justify or even explain the non-con, which makes the love story pretty unbelievable.

True to its nature
Overall this manga offers quite a few things in my book: good art - even great at times although not necessarily all the time, comedic situations that are actually hilarious, moments where I could relate with the characters, no unacceptably stupid incidents. Those alone are already safe to say I don't hate the manga. Still, I have to say I could've appreciate it more if Nanami-sensei had stepped up her game a bit to really break out of the box. Nonetheless although I can't say that the manga really left a deep impression on me I think one can still read and enjoy it thoroughly. I'll definitely check out more works from the mangaka in the future.
this was super duper fun! the start was really cute but i was kindda thinking that this would be one of those mangas where the relationship is very abusive- i mean, it is actually but the uke seems to want it or not, hes indecisive haha, i guess thats the point? but the art was pretty and the sex was warm (?) xD hey i cant say that its steamy cause i really think that the characters are cute~ anyways, recommended for everybody just because

Really loved this one! Such an unique set-up: For starters, the uke actually wants sex! Admittedly, he does change his mind after he realises his mistake and that does lead to a bit of non-con, but as the story progresses it's clear that he does still want and enjoy the sex. I should also point out that the smut is hot, so that was another bonus.
Also despite all the cruel things Ryuuichi does, Yamashita is actually also pretty cruel to him right from the start, if you look at it from Ryuuichi's perspective (he points this out himself in ch 4), so I just can't hate Ryuuichi at all. Yeah he does some mean things, but he's also feeling used and instead of getting upset about it, he gets angry and becomes a bit sadistic.
Anyway, if you're thinking the same things as FrostyNoire, then I advise you read all 4 chapters plus the extras, as I think they show that Ryuuichi isn't as bad as he seems. He actually becomes pretty sweet in the last chapter when he's finally honest with Yamashita, and in the extra called "One Random Day" he does get his comeuppance lol.
So don't let warnings of rape or victim-blaming put you off this, it really isn't as bad as it sounds. It's got a funny and unique plot, with pretty deep characters and gorgeous art. Yamashita is a naive kind of guy, but he isn't at all irritating. In fact when you think of the trauma he experienced when he was in school, it becomes completely understandable why he acts the way he does. And as for Ryuuichi, he just gets plain jealous of his lookalike most of the time lol.
So I was going to give this 9.5/10, but thanks to the wonderful extras, I'm giving it top marks instead ^__^

Response to FrostyNoire's Spoiler Msg
I don't want to spoil anything but.... there weren't any second rape happening in chapter two (according to the extra chapters). Ryuuichi is a sadist. He doesn't even realize he's scaring the hell outta Yamashita coz he always gets mad, haha.
Anyway, this is, by far, the funniest manga I ever worked on. It's a very good read and I came to like Nanami's works because of this.
