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. 1-2 Includes an extra about Akiyama-kun's friend, Sano Tomomi.

Akiyama-kun 3

I liked a lot akiyama-kun but it feels incomplete, like if the author wanted to continue it.
There's even a doujinshi about akiyama-kun 3, that is like a sequel and in the end there is a "to be continued", but it was done in 2011/12/30 and has passed a looong time and the author hasn't continued it, I wish she felt like continuing it someday, because the plot is new. I find a lot of yaoi that have the same story but this one doesn't have it.
To demostrate that there is this sequel go to this page to confirm it:

this story was strange, a bit weird, but good! nice deviation from the normal run-of-the-mill BL. it was sweet and cute, messy and sexy at the same time. i've never read a manga where there was flat out sex in front of other people (shocked friends even!) so this is very novel to me.

the extra....NOBARA AIKO YOU TEASE YOU. now that we have more background and exposition on sano, the best friend, i want to read more about him! i realllyyy want an extra story about him and his relationship with akiyama-kun ;((((( poor guy, i just want him to be happy XD

Edit: read this once, then reread it while listening to the Drama CD. It's so good <3

When I first read this (around the time the first chapter came out) I really, really disliked it.
There was too much crying, too much drooling, too much snot? I don't know, it felt really weird and uncomfortable. I don't think I even read it as far as the twist,

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the role-reversing

I just happened to bump into this again today and for some unknown reason decided to give it a go: best decison I've ever made. Perhaps when I first tried to read my head was really someplace else because, today, I really enjoyed it right from the start. Shiba and Akiyama-kun are definitely an odd couple but they fit each other perfectly, developed as they are to perfection considering the lenght of this. I don't think Shiba was supposed to be cute though --- why is everyone calling him that? He's just an obsessive cry-baby who's great at doing sex, ahah.
And Akiyama is, without a doubt, the first uke I find genuinely, genuinely hot. They just fit in such a strange, awkward manner there's no way you won't like it.
I wish there was more to it.

The art is a straight 10 out of 10 <3
I'll definitely be looking forward for more of this author's works.

PS: The world's problems are still continuing, but hey---- here's some silly variety show for you to keep your mind busy with something else. I laughed so hard because it's so true.

I love this manga and everything about it!
The only thing I can say really is... why is there not more of it!?
This manga was enjoyable right from the start and through to the end, there was nothing boring or filler or side story in it that would bother me.
I adore the art and that really messy drawing and story-telling style very much fits the manga.
The characters are amazing, I love them all to bits and I'd love to see more of Akiyama's friends as well (especially Sano, lol)... I love how Shiba is a big crybaby who lacks self confidence but when it comes to sex he's an animal! And how Akiyama is the cool guy who never messes up and is popular with everybody but then he's also a sex-hungry uke! Oh man, that's just candy for every yaoi fan!
I really loved how a lot of it is about sex... and they just jump right into it, too. It feels really typical for male teens and it's just so much fun to listen to them talk about it and think about it in this crude and straight forward way!

I can see how someone who prefers there to be a real shojo-like romantic love story that slowly builds up or a typical big, manly seme - pretty or cute uke setting might not like this manga BUT everyone else, please do yourself a favor and read this because it's a real little gem full of smutty goodness!

I'm one of those people who judges manga by the art work, first impressions mean the most afterall. However, in this case, don't let the simplistic artwork keep you from reading on. The plot line may seem plain, but you'll definitely develop a liking for the characters. I also love how realistic and down to Earth the mangaka created this. It's the type of story line that could happen in real life. Fantasy is great, but sometimes a story like this is refreshing. Looking forward to reading more of this manga.

Let me say this, SHIBA WAS NOT UNBEARABLY ANNOYING. You've not seen annoying..

Well, I sort of know what this artist was going for. Usually the semes are cool, and the ukes are like shiba. Switching the roles makes it very interesting, I'm tired of the usual so this was a breath of fresh air. If you like cool, calm, and collected ukes like the taller guy you see in the picture, you will not be too disappointed.
For some reason the Akiyama-kun (uke) reminds me of Sasuke, and Shiba (seme) reminds me of Naruto due to his spiky hair.. hehe that is how I imagine Sasuke as an uke. ^^

Unique And Hot

Well the story starts off with VERY unexpected twists and turns and reading it made me speechless. xD For good reasons tho. I like how the story focuses on these two characters who are seen as outcasts in their own way. Akiyama is a delinquent loner while Shiba tends to get picked on by other kids. It's really great to see how their relationship develops through the manga.

I also love the fact that the characters are not what you expect them to be. They are such an awkward couple that manage to work together so well. Akiyama is one hell of a dominate uke that i for one adore very much. Shiba is quite the cry baby, but he's extremely loyal and that makes me happy. The art is really messy.. like dude it's all over the place but yoo the sex scenes are super hot. So it's definitely worth reading. And Akiyama's hair is fucking gorgeous.

odd couple, so cute

The way I see this story kind of conforms with the title "Akiyama-kun". I mean the fact that Akiyama is this scary (but beautiful) delinquent, yet secretly he's an uke who likes some totally wimpy loser, and on top of that he's so honest about it, is just fascinating and cute X'D . Actually the seme character reminds me of a lot of wimpy protagonists of shounen and hentai manga, who SOMEHOW still get the hot girl (wtf?), except in this manga he gets the GUY who's totally out of his league... even more wtf? But I like it!!

This is hooooooot! Was not expecting that type of event to unravel, but when it it did, I liked it. *~* And honestly, the fact that they even mentioned a condom put me over the moon. I'm really looking forward to the rest and its sequel. I have my eye on you Nobara Aiko.

Also, so much love to Game Over or Continue for scanlating. <3

Sometimes when reading the comments I wonder whenever I read the same story. I suppose it's fine because everyone is different and all. But I just wanted to note that this is NOT a story about two boys meeting each other and getting it on, if you are looking for that type of story there are plenty elsewhere. This is a story about a certain event and how this event affected the ones participating and witnessing it. In terms of yaoi, where 9 out of 10 stories are about boy meeting boy and how they fall in love, this is fucking brilliant and a breeze of fresh air.
