Hoshino is a timid grade school teacher. Sudou was one year his senior in high school. They meet again for the first time in over a decade and discover that Sudou's son is Hoshino's student. The two of them try to figure out how they feel about each other, and try to remember what it was that had brought them together and ultimately drove them apart in high school. They're both different, but that may not matter as much as how they still feel about each other.

I think the two main guys trying to figure out how they fit into their own lives, their own past, and with each other was so wonderful.

I felt so sad for the kid who lost his mom. He seemed very upset still, and being like 10, he had no idea how to handle it.

The mom was SO COOL. By far the best character! I'd love to read something just about her. <3

I wish it had been fleshed out a little more. But I guess it was just kind of a snapshot sort of deal. Still really good.

i just read up to chapter 7 and almost fell off my bed at the ending. YOU CAN'T JUST CUT IT OFF MID-SENTENCE LIKE THAT HAYAKAWA-SENSEI ;____;!! im in love with this mangaka's stuff. the art and paneling is just....amazing. it's a bit reminiscent of sahara mizu's stuff in its simplicity and poetic-ness. i love how she blends flashbacks and memories into reality using sound or some kind of symbolic imagery. i also love how she gives machines the character uses and even the weather some kind of personality. the other background characters like other students and teachers are all really well characterized and endearing (like the love square reveal and the gym teacher's reaction to it all, lmfao).

super charming story, im dying for more.


absolutely. BEAUTIFUL. storywise, i feel like some of the characters (like akihiro) could have been fleshed out a liiitle bit more and had their motivations made a little more clear (what's his reason for denying his feelings anyways? i feel like his reason was never made clear), but otherwise, another breathtaking work by nojiko-sensei. i love how the art and how the panels are styled play as a metaphor for what's actually happening on screen. the panels are dripping when hoshino is washing his face and trying to clear up his muddy thoughts, ribbons decorating the panels and converging at one point when he finally makes his decision, and two ribbons forming a bow between panels when they finally declare what they feel for each other (also the buttons symbolising...yes. that was pleasantly creative XD).

that extra chapter.....HAYAKAWA SENSEI YOU ARE SUCH A TEASE. ok i get she writes shounen-ai, but stop making everything so sexy then lol. *dies inside*

This manga has melt my heart with every single chapter no matter how many times I've read it. Hayakawa Nojiko Sensei has become one of the top of my all time mangaka list. I am so very happy to have come across one of her work and hoping to read more! I thought I've saved this on my list and commented but it seems I haven't orz I love this manga very much and very hopeful it continues on. Extremely happy.
Her stories gives me a since of warmth it's difficult to find the rights words to express how I truly feel. Will be waiting patiently for more.

This manga has just cemented my love for Hayakawa Nojiko. This manga really evokes so much emotion and Hoshino's yearning and inner monologues are so heartfelt. It is both sweet and a little sad. I love how the characters in her manga don't just fall in love and get together, but go through the obstacle of trying to accept that the one they love is of the same sex. Hoshino and Sudou have loved each other for eleven years, but both attribute it to the ages of youth and try to convince themselves they are adults whose relationship has become just that of a homeroom teacher and father. Like other reviewers said, while this is not a novel concept, it is executed really well. I found this very tender and touching.

I'm surprised there's only one comment. o.o

This is the series that completely made Hayakawa Nojiko on my list of favorite mangaka (and I only have a handful of favorites since I'm picky :/). When I think about Yozora no Sumikko de, there's nothing outstandingly original in the plot, however, the way she executes the story, evokes emotion from the reader. I really like how many images speak loud than the words/thoughts said. smile The layout of the panels are sometimes different from most mangas. Her artwork is refreshing yet lovely. What I like the most are the characters and their interactions with other characters. ^.^ (Shouta is such a cute kid.)

I highly recommend giving this series a try if you like slice of life. XDb The first chapter is slow but the rest is well worth it.

I really hate you right now. Whilst in the middle of finals studying, of which I have 5 to take, you are distracting me with your pretty, profound, and original BL. While a story about a teacher and a single father, whose son is in said teacher's class (and seems to have a crush on the teacher), is perhaps not the most original set-up in the world, what you do with it is amazing. It goes so much deeper than your usual single father stories.

Your art is mindblowing, and I LOVE how subtle and psychological everything in your manga is. If I have one request, please make Akihiro less of a jerk and a cassanova. Thanks.
