The main couple is the best

I liked some of the side pairings but I wish we had gotten more than like 3 chapters about the main couple. They’re by far my favorite. But in general this book avoids a lot of cliches and I love it for that. It’s just sweet.

The whole series is one of the best yaoi stories, by all means. The story telling, slow but somehow just right pace, pairing, the tension between lovers, the odds they went through, awesome art, the background, complex plot and all the characters, everything is just amazing and makes you love the story.

I expected sth different knowing some other works of Nakamura sensei. I was surprised that she can actually make sth so bright, so light and pure but in the same time deep and meaningful. There's not much nudity, no dark past or messed up characters but it doesn't matter. It's entertaining and funny. Main characters are complete opposites - it sounds like a cliche, moreover there's more clished threads, like a student-teacher relationship and such, it could be a complete failure in someone else's hands but... how should I put this? she made amazingly good story based on simple threads. Sensei brought simplicity on a whole different level.
The art is just perfect. Characters are overdrawn at times in order to strengthen a contrast between them or to better convey emotions.

One more time sensei proves outstanding talents so don't hesitate to pick up this tittle, it's definitely worth reading.

Urgh, it's Nakamura Asumiko, what else do you expect? She's so good at what she does, and so incredibly versatile too. Her takes on psychology and angst could haunt you for days, she could produce some of the most erotic and sensual smut, and her fluff will leave you squealing and fawning over it with adoration. This has been an extraordinary journey, from the first chapter of Doukyuusei to the last extra story released in bundles with the anime DVD. I sincerely wish sensei will produce some more light-hearted work like this in the future, because I just cannot get enough of it!

This is a perfect 10 of course..
The story kept developing and developing, leading to a more conclusive ending. In the artbook or something, there is the final happy ending of the characters.
I really want more!! I just like seeing them interacting together. I don't mind if nothing happens, just the characters interacting and acting fluffy is enough for me after all the problems are solved.
This is how impacting this series was!

Ahh this is great >< Deals with a lot of more mature and serious issues too, such as coming out to parents, complications with teacher/student relationships, telling your daughter you're gay, etc. Definitely rare to see this dealt with sensitively in a manga, and all in the same one at that! I actually like this one the best so far I think. But Sora looks so weird in his adult form I don't like it ><"" All his happy cute fluffy look is gone and he looks too pretty and kinda angsty now sad The story is good though, it's just my personal preference for his looks aha

There were some oneshots I didn't like (and some I really enjoyed), but the thing I liked the most about this manga was the continuation of Rihito and Hikaru's story, it was the cutest! ♡ I'm dying to see another oneshot about their life together as a "married" couple *///*
