When Shiba Daisuke confesses to his delinquent upperclassman Akiyama-kun in front of all of Akiyama's friends, getting beat up and ridiculed would maybe be understandable. But the events that follow are nowhere near what any of them would expect.
Vol 1 Includes an extra about Akiyama-kun's friend, Sano Tomomi.
Nobara-sensei manages to pull this one off in such a way that you'd think writing about two excessively(?) horny boys struggling to build and sustain a relationship with all the turbulence of adolescence would be easy. In the original volume (before it resumed serialisation like what, 3 years later) up to chapter 6 where it left readers with a cliffhanger there was this feeling of helplessness permeating the story. While the premise seemed totally nonsensical, the reactions that played out following the playful cruelty of the boys was remarkable, maybe even realistic.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Akiyama started off lost and disillusioned but at least he had his gang around him - yet after that the group immediately disintegrates leaving only Shiba. And he holds on to Shiba because he doesn't want to be lonely, even if it means using the latter. Equally interesting is how it's the same for Shiba - his world revolves around A and he doesn't seem to have a social life/any interests either. But everything is okay, and it feels like they can do anything, if they're together. t's not very healthy, basically.
There's something about the way it was written that made it striking. There's not much observable character development but characterisation was done cleanly enough, such that you do care about their relationship by the end. Their dynamic stands out because of the twisted way they initially rely on each other and grow as a couple. The original ending was left open so it left a sombre aftertaste, and a lingering uncertainty because of their relationship at that point.
But now that chapter 7 is out Sensei seems to be back with a vengeance. And it seems that she plans to bring it to fruition. The relationship seems healthier at this point with the re-introduction of side characters that will force the two MCs to break out of their private paradise they've created with each other. Everything seems to be off to a good start again... so let's take this with a pinch of salt and just rejoice.
Oh did I mention the sex and art style. Actually, you can negate that useless rambling above. You can read this manga for the H scenes between Akiyama and Shiba alone. The plotline is merely a bonus. This yaoi is the real deal. Go for it, yo. Just like Shiba. I have one question, though: how old are they? ...Shiba looks like he's 15.... which really starts bordering on uncomfortable shota boundary for me.

Why the sequel is undone or rather empty? I want more, i don't typically settle in this kind of art but the story is good, i want more to know them, i want to know what will happen to their relationships hope that the friendship factor will be reconciled, i find the uke as a selfish guy but the seme is like a dog so it doen't matter they chain each other you know. This story is a good read.
So far i've only seen the 1st volume & the special story but..
it's really worth reading imho because it's not the typical yaoi manga where the seme is always cold-hearted or a bully that always forcefully pushes down his cute-looking or girly-looking defenseless uke.
The first time I read this i was bothered by the bullying (1st chapter); and i was not fond of the seme (Shiba) because he was always crying at everything, but his care and love for his uke-bae is soo sweet imho it shows as he give a lot of effort for him (i came to like him eventually!!). While the uke (Akiyama Yuuji) isnt the weak-whiny-defenseless-girly type, he's tough and says and does what he wants -- i like this kind of uke ;3 Also both are very straight-forward, possessive, and have high smex drive! their love is mutual! ♥ XDD
Also, the story looks simple but if you look through it clearly it's actually deep because it show bits of real people circumstances (like how friends became strangers because of sexual orientation, family problems, bullying, & isolation). I like this because even though these circumstances are present the main couple still manages to understand each other & becomes happy. But this manga is not dark/depressing ok?! it's a mix of comical with seriousness.
The art style was new for me, it needed getting used to, but i got used to it after reading this manga for more than 4x already and i enjoy every moment of it, especially the smex scenes ♥ ;DD
For open-minded yaoi fans who want to read something new & easy this is very readworthy ♥.
Not The Best
I can't get over the seme's crying face in the first chapter. Maybe it gets better, but I can't remember much more than that. I've read more, but I can't remember anything besides thinking the uke is a little too apathetic for me. I applaud it for not being the traditional dominant seme submissive uke stuff we see in yaoi everywhere, but this one's just not for me.
One of my favorites!
This is probably one of my favorite manga because of the story line. I've read it several times. The sex scenes are a lot to take in though, they're a bit much...although, I do love the two main characters personalities. I really wish I could find a manga with similar story line or even one with characters that act similar. Really cute, will always be a favorite of mine.
Akiyama-kun (is hot)
I love the personality of the uke, but I can't stand the seme. He's such a CRYBABY. It's nice to see a yaoi that doesn't have the "stereotypical couple" though. The smut is hot, the uke is hot, the art's not the worst, but the plot isn't anything special. Check it out, it's only a volume.
Waaa!!! When the hell is going to be the sequel scanlated??
Never! FUck! i did really like it!! The art was pretty sketchy and messy, i dont usually like that but the storyline was so hot that was totally irrelevant this time! Akiyama-kun is so handsome!!! and that idiot Shiba... i'd hug him tightly if i could. Their relationship was strange from both parts. I thought Akiyama was insensitive and thought nothing else but sex. However, Little by Little cuteness appear between them. OHH and that lonely air that has those situations at school when you dont have so many friends, it even reminded me of my old school days
great characters with amusing interactions i laugh and scream a lot. fluid artwork, and i really mean 'fluid', whenever shiba cries or they have sex everything goes all wavy. just read this, all you fujoushi out there.
i love it! you got to read this! it's one of the unique but smutty and effective yaoi manga out there! even, i, wish there's more volumes! > w <)b
