Love the author, just so-so on this particular work. I don't mind the whole setup, or even the heavier aspects of it(though she's repeated the same theme a few times now, which is weird), but I hate the pairings. Elementary schooler is creepy, even if he looks much older. It made the whole thing really unpleasant. I wish she had just made him a bit older. Also not fond of the other due to similar reasons, but it wasn't near as bad in that respect. I could have gotten in to their story, if they had one. It's very one sided. There is development, but very little of it involves Ryou, and then suddenly we're supposed to believe he's also romantically interested after showing zero hints the entire series. It needed several more chapters to flesh that out. Maybe it was cut short, or maybe it was just sloppy writing, I can't really know. Anyway, it wasn't terrible to read, and I still love her art, but it was definitely not her best.

I love this series and cant wait for the next update. Its just so cute and sad. All the characters are likable and just makes you want to cheer them on and work hard like them. Its a pretty inspirational story of how brothers bond together and work together. I havent read Mankai Darling but you dont need to to understand the story. I really recommend this one!

Honestly the romance story is a bit slowly, but I understand it because it is a shonen-ai after all...but until now there's only one couple and I'm really curious if it's gonna be another one or two...

I really love all Yamamoto-sensei works, but this manga isn't that good, but I'm giving it an opportunity because its a work from one of my favorite mangakas.

I wanna know what happens! Kyaaaa the characters from Mankai Darling have appeared <3
And i'm waiting for the relationship between Ame and Hayato with all my heart!

Love all her works, there's nothing wrong with making one manga slower than the others, she can do whatever she wants wink

First of all, I love Yamamoto Kotetsuko's works. And I'm thankful that this one gets scanlated.

But I always have this particular opinion that her works are best served light and sweet (Honto Yajuu, Chuchun ga Chun) or with someone else handling the plot (Ano Hi, Sugiru Juunana no Haru)

....This particular work is one solid proof of that.

I appreciate her trying to do some heavy tragedy, but it's very..lacking. Other than her art, which is gorgeous as usual (although they are starting to have sameface-itis)

The pacing is too fast, and indeed the implied tragedy comes like a bad one-two punch.
As a result, there are no character development in the beginning, no emotional weight laying on the tragedy. I don't see any particular reason why I should feel sad or attached, and all I could think was "meh, plot device." Has she watched Korean dramas lately?

Then it essentially whipped back to her usual fare; fluffy lighthearted cheerfulness. There are some hint of wistfulness, but mostly it's 90% Yamamoto Kotetsuko. It....cheapens the entire premise. Of course, I'm waiting for the storyline to fully blossom here (atm it's only like, 4 chapters in)

The fluffiness is paired with equally lighthearted (or, if I were to be cruel, vapid) characters. The relationship feels empty and superficial, its build up very faint.

And..the characters. They are either too cliche (it's certainly no Lucky Number 13 or Honto Yajuu), or in one case, total wacko. One of the hinted romantic stories involves a sixth grader. SIXTH GRADER. Has Yamamoto Kotetsuko embraced shotacon, running out of character ideas, or are there some social development in Japan I don't know about?

It feels very rushed, empty and....unfulfilling.

I would prefer a much slower pace, for one. More character depth; more dimension.

Only one chapter and already so fricking sad! It doesn't really feel fair.

Very nice scanlation. I'll look forward to the next chapter.
