Toshiya takes in his former teacher's unruly son, Tetsu, as a favor after Tetsu gets into some trouble with the mafia. Tetsu does everything he can to get Toshiya's attention, including having sex in his room, bringing home random guys, and molesting Toshiya every chance he gets.

Meanwhile, Toshiya is gradually seduced by the store manager at work. The store manager and Tetsu fight it out through violence and more passive-aggressive techniques in hopes of getting Toshiya's affection---or his body, whatever.

Cliche sad family become delinquent uke. Love at first sight seme. The story is way too fast.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Hes like with the manager then BAM, no, Im not your thing. Oh, this is just father complex. Pretty dumb and slow to not realize that. Too bad you already had sex with him for being an idiot. Oh, seme works hard and he actually in love with me. Oh gosh, I love him too. Sorry thats not how love works. Seme has sex with others while thinking of him. Somehow this is overused in yaoi and still pissed me off

Too much unnecessary, out of place comedic scenes left no room for character development, the third party guy is old guy, nothing more. The romance is so underdeveloped but filled with cheesy lines.

To be completely honest, this manga had only one thing really going for it, and that's the pretty pictures. The plot is WAY to predictable. One glance at the manga's cover and a brief read over the summary, and I already knew what was going to happen before it happened.

Not to mention that each men involved probably now have a sexual transmitted disease since they slept around, and didn't bother with a condom (gross, who would want thatconfused)

Although the art was good, the story is funny and all, but I never like the idea of having sex with other people just to get the one you love to pay attention to you. It seems pointless and it doesn't make any sense. Not to mention that it might hurt the person you like! So in anyway, I only gave an 8 cuz of the korean style drawing. Looks awesome!

I didn't like this. Everyone was annoying especially the manager(how dare he treat Tetsu and Toshiya that way!) I thought Tetsu and Toshiya were finally going to have sex(consensual or not) but interrupted them and took advantage of Toshiya right after! I hate that the manga ends right after Toshiya and Tetsu realizes their love. I want to see them being lovey dovey, but is it never expressed (confessions of love). This manga is out of the ordinary, but in a bad way. A regular romance is better than this. And the only character I really liked was Tetsu.

Excelent, I simply adored this one! *-*
What already conquered my heart right from the beginning was that both of the main characters were my seme and uke types exactly.
Tetsu is just the kind of seme I love: always teasing the uke, playing with him, making him jealous...a pushy guy, dominant, even cold and distant sometimes, perverted...and yet, with a pure heart and totally head over heels for the uke.
And Toshiya also was also the kind of uke I love! *-* Deliquent, who fights the seme back, not whiny, strong by himself, a little stubborn and mean sometimes.
Oh, and what about that super psychological depth given to the characters? Is was almost as if they existed in this world, the way they were so developed through the story! Even the complexes were real! Toshiya's father complex (which explains his relationship with Kobayashi and the manager) and Tetsu's obsession with Toshiya that causes him to be a playboy! *-*

I don't even not what to say about the amazing art (I usually like Korean art more than Japanese, for some reason. I only prefer Japanese when it's as delicate as a flower xD) and so much angst (just the way I like) that made my heart throb! <3

But I simply HATED the manager! He could see right from the start that Tetsu loved Toshiya! Okay, I'm not saying he should give up just because he has a rival, but it was obvious that Toshiya loved Testu also and just didn't realise it! So why did he had to f*ck it all up?! He even tried to hurt Tetsu! I hate people who interfere with true love on purpose, when they know about it!

As for the plot, kinda already seen, of course, but who cares?! So cute! I didn't have a clue Tetsu loved Toshiya for such a long time...that makes me love him even more <3

It had indeed some negative points, such as:
* Well, I'm going to ignore this one a little because the rest made up for it, but...Toshiya's first time. If an uke isn't a virgin anymore already, I don't have a problem with it. But I hate when, during the story, the uke sleeps with another person that's not the seme. Especially losing his virginity to that stupid manager!!

* And really, if I have something to complain was that it was too short. When I got to the fourth chapter and they still weren't together, I became desperate for more, and the fifth one alone wasn't enough, even with such a perfect ending.

* And for the reason above, their roomates-turning-to-lovers part was rushed. It had like a THOUSAND scenes with the stupid manager and only a couple of pages that had physical contact between Tetsu and Toshiya...I do think it is better when it takes longer for the main relationship to occur or set, but it doesn't mean it shouldn't be given time to be exposed also.

But...What are freaking waiting for?! Go read it NOW!

PS: I look forward to more of this author! (and NOT shoujo -.-")

I didnt really like this one. The mangaka built up a whole lot of drama and emotions (and rivals) that could have gone on for about 2 more volumes but resolved it all in 10 pages. The love seemed rushed and i was left dissatisfied. Also, I hate it when the mangaka draws more detail of the main love interests having sex with others but only spends 1 page on the main couple itself. pretty art tho :/

Excellent Manga/Manhwa

Oh,god! This is absolutely the best yaoi manga/manhwa I have ever read.(I read over 400 titles)

In this manga/manhwa

1-Art is excellent
2-Characters have strong personalities
3-Plot is very interesting
4-Love scenes are heart throbbing

and also it is very funny and sweet and cute and .....

I just love this manga/manhwa (i am not sure what style it is.The art is Korean and reading format is right to left) and this manhwaka (she is the author/artist of manhwa Queens,which I own the english release) I think this manga should be licensed.I will definitely be the first one to buy it!

Regarding teresaborrego's spoilers below, she's incorrectly identified the restaurant manager as Kobayashi Tetsu's father.

There were four men, not three: Toshiya (the blond), Kobayashi Tetsu (the bad boy) Kobayashi-sensei (who's abroad and was seen in a flash-back and in the end), and the restaurant manager who's Tetsu and Toshiya's employer.

Spoiler (highlight to view)

Kobayashi-sensei (Tetsu's father) never slept with Toshiya. The restaurant manager is the one whom Toshiya has had an affair with.

teresaborrego's confusion might be because the manager and Kobayashi-sensei look alike?

Why did people like this manga? it was full of really messed up people. And the ending? what is up with the lovey dovey ending after everything that happened. it was just weird.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Toshiya, is sleeping with Kobayashi-sensei, because he wants a father, and Kobayashi eventually finds out about his son's feelings for Tetsu, and still sleeps with Toshiya, but at the end he steps aside because he "loves" his son. he showed his love for his son by sleeping with Toshiya infront of him. Tetsu has some weird obsession with Toshiya and spends the entire manga sleeping with random girls (while he fantasizes about him.) then for some unknown reason the sexual harassment that Toshiya is subjected to by Tetsu causes him to fall in love with Tetsu, and they have a sweet ending promising to only love each other. are you kidding me? i just hope he showered in between having sex with the father and then with the son, in the same night. lol

[Edit by mod]: Possible spoiler

Such an incredible, fast-paced and intriguing story! I really like the style that seems to be associated with manhwa: It's so vivid and lush. The dark, bold lines of the artwork are stunning in emotional impact.

Although misleading and confusing and angst-filling for Toshiya, the behaviour of Tetsu is very believable and even forgivably likeable. This artists has created a story of humour, friendship and love with two very imperfect characters that worms it's way into my heart. Even the manipulative manager, in the end, I found him to be a character that rang true and mult-faceted - not just 'good' or 'bad.'
