there is nothing much to say, except that this manga manage to fulfill every requirement for a good yaoi. likable characters, chemistry in relationship, interesting developments, and believable love. it is cute, and it is funny, and it make you feel all warm in the end seeing the couple end up together after much self inflicted tribulation. heavily recommended.

Not one of Yamada Yugi´s best, I found the plot to be confusing sometimes and rushed. I wanted more depth to it, instead I got something repetitive and plain. Felt disappointed to be honest, because from the summary it looked like it was something within my taste.
Also, the ending didn´t feel like a real ending. Izumiya and Hayakawa had many problems that needed to be sorted out, I waited for that moment until I realized that they wouldn´t sort things out between them, ever. Maybe if this manga could get a sequel, then that would be something to discuss. When they finally got together I didn´t get the impression of that it would last forever or that it would work out.

I´m giving it an 8, it wasn´t completley hopeless because the story was sweet and the characters were very likeable.

the chapters are short but packed punches, the whole story was cohesive and believable...and the fat friend was a real good comic relief during the dramatic moments smile Overall, it was a satisfying ride reading this manga. You should give it a try if you're up to light drama and realistic stories!

This was a very typical story from sensei. It's not very fast-moving, but it's really cute. I just sometimes wished sensei would show a full HEA with all the trimmings, after torturing her leads time and time again....

Can't believe people are saying its too long. Its only 10 chapters, 4 of which are only like 12 pages. And it didn't feel like the story was drawn out or dragging, at least to me. Anyways, it was a cute. I love stories that are told over time because you really get to see how characters change and grow up. And the side characters were interesting too. Overall its a recommend

Aw :3 <--- ultimate reaction.
I have to say, for all the ups and downs in this story and the serious suspense in their relationship, this ended on such a sweet note. Gosh i feel all gushy XD Very very cute, very sweet, very easy to become addicted to. This mangaka has once again swept me off my feet.

Well at first you may want to kick Hayakawa in the balls...and its possible that the feeling sticks around...even after you finish reading it...but it's all worth it..REALLY..JUST READ IT

Even though it may be long, it goes to show that life isn't all that easy. It's a very lovely read and quite funny too in some areas. The art may seem sort of messy and lazy but when you push that aside, it's a great read for any yaoi fan.

I don't think that the story is too long or too complicated; I mean, the characters can be silly and can do some stupid things, but the overall plot has a nice development that most yaoi manga lacks, and you really get to see how the relationship between Izumiya and Hayakawa changes over time. A very sweet story with a lot of interesting characters that keeps you reading all the way through. I absolutely enjoyed it <3
