It pissed me off

This uke is just plain irritating. He is just a cheap whore who tried to act hard to get at the beginning. At the end, he was insensitive enough to talk about his unrequited love right after the bed scene. The seme is no saint, he jumped someone in his sleep and attracted to his look and sex at the beginning but at least he tried to understand him afterward. And at least, he actually knows how to do real work for the company instead of sleeping around for job. This left a bad taste in my mouth. Like the mangaka but this is not the her best.

Mmmm, ya, I'm not really believing this story in the sense that
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
if you are in love with your brother, I'm pretty sure that it's indicative of a greater psychological issue... I don't think you can get over such a taboo thing as being in love with your brother in such a short period of time. (Can you imagine how awkward family holidays and get-togethers would be??? Your brother-in-law is potentially your competition??)
Also, Shou never once says that he loves Hasunobe--he only says: "make me forget my first love," etc. if it's not a serious turn-off to be reminded that your current partner was/is in love with their biological brother I don't know what is. Scratch that, it's a turn-off to bring up ANY past love in bed, regardless of family relation or not lol

Sceptical comments aside, the art was beautiful and the sex scenes were pretty top notch. Sometimes I was laughing at how dramatic their kink talk was, but hey, it was still hot wink

Cute art as always (not my favourite but still nice), good smut, and decent plot. I have to say I prefer "Sweet" to this one, as I think theres more love and sex in the other, but it's still a nice read. I would've liked to see more development in Shou's feelings, so I kinda felt sorry for Yoshitomo, yet I suppose as the title suggests this wasn't going to be as lovey-dovey as "Sweet". It was still a relatively cute story with a satisfactory ending though, but the best part of this was definitely all the dirty talk haha XD

Omg when he said "F*** me so hard, that i can't feel anything but u" i was like .. OMG THIS is the REAL DEAL! perfect! loved it! SUUPER SMEXXY!! and HOTTTT!!!
The Plot was quite romantic.. kind od a spin of "romeo&juliet", cause they were each-others business rivals, so.. was kind of interesting..
The Art.. well. i've nerver liked this kind of drawing when the uke and seme look alike, and are kind of very "pretty"? u know? like "girly-kind-of-pretty", well.. hasn't been my favorite, but i endured it during this, cause.. i mean.. i wasn't ugly at all.. but again, not my favorite.. but that's MY opinion..
I liked this one better that the previous series "Sweet", but in both loooved the dirty talk! LOL, i think it really deserves some.. i dunno.. award or something.. really good LOL ahhahah

If you want to kill some time read this. Good art as well as sex. To be honest though, it didn't really captivate me, but I read it for kicks, so it's all good. Unless you're looking for some deep, fabulous, touching story, this is a good, simple read.

(By the way, and incest warning would've been nice! There's not sex, but some making out and unrequited love >.>)

More Decent than Haruka Minami's Usual Works

I like this yaoi manga. Usually Haruka Minami's Boys' Love manga balances between a wierd form of sensual ″innocence″ (?) and being just a plain, dirty redikomi manga. I guess my explaination makes hardly ANY sense whatsoever. But I recommend this either way to any male/male smut-hungry fujoshi. <3

I liked it a lot.
Although the story is kinda cliche, I do like the way the characters develop their psichological part. I liked Shou since the very first time he appeared, but I guess it's just my unshaken love for sad and cold characters.
But Hasunobe got more and more mature as he completed his life with the one missing piece, which was love in a difficult situation. The way he gives Shou space to breath and to think about his own feelings really stands out to me in a positive way.

Not to mention the perfect and delicate art, of course.
Ah! And I couldn't forget about the so hot sex scenes!

The reason I'm giving it 8 is because it could have gotten deeper, but it still is a good one!

I think this is the 10th time im gonna say this that the ART is the best in the world LOL I really didn't care much about the story, it is somehow you're typical/mediocre yaoi story. The art just made me keep reading it towards the end. The story was typical but not so bad, it was sweet and the development was there i guess. This was better then SWEET in terms of story but SWEET is hotter bigrazz

Very Sweet and Pretty

Hasunobe is a very admirable character. He came to a couple deep realizations throughout this sweet story that kept it from being too frilly and light and gave the story a good 'weight.'

His love for Shou, he realized, is missing the fact that Shou was suffering from his own overpowering feelings directed elsewhere.

And the way that Hasunobe worked tirelessly, with great effort, and selfless love to make Shou -a man that he knew was closed-off and hurting- happy, was completely endearing.

He never gave up!

My only complaint was, although the art was pretty in a very shoujo, flowery way, I found it sometimes hard to distinguish between characters. They appeared very similar in characteristics.
