this is so good. once again, sensei work is amazing. the art and story are just awesome.

this statement "why am i a good kisser?" that made me thinking also and made some guesses. sensei works are not just about hot guys making out. there's story in it.

i just read the scanlated chapter 1 and i want more.

Rating at that time: 10

EDIT: I finished reading this. Well, it started interesting but gone downhill. With only 1 volume (it's so short) plus staggered releases, the story prolly wane and eventually lost my interest.

It moved too fast and too rushed. Don't expect any real character development. They don't really seem true to their characters either; so you can help to be thrown off a bit. Also too many characters considering how unimportant (and a bit uninteresting too) they really were.

Overall: A shallow story. Just an enjoyable story. Something to pass time with!
I am being a bit harsh, but people were raving about it and I don't understand why :-)

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Well YEAH! Nagisa passed ffrom "i-don't-know-what-u-are-for-me" to "i like u let's have sex" in LESS than two pages!!
.. kind of funny actually but still TOO FAST!!
but it was interesting and cute smile BUT... it COULD'VE been better!! sad

Manga equivilant of a fluffy kitten

XD Strange title but i stand by it. This manga, despite being only 4 chapters so far makes me feel amazingly warm and fuzzy inside, the same sort of feeling you get when you hold something amazingly cute (kitten/puppy whatever). So far i'm being reeled in. The gradual progression is fast enough to keep you satisfied but still leaves you wanting more. It is truly addictive to read. Add in the (as usual) superb art and panel pacing and you've got a top rate story on your hands. 10/10

I have to lower rating would be good story...BUT... it should be at least in three/four volumes or more...not everything in one volume... everything was going too fast...there wasn't time for much emotions and stuff... I believe the story got a big potential...but unfortunately didn't get enough space...

Nagisa is truly the cutest uke ever! I love this story and can't wait for more. The plot is pretty commonplace but it still leaves you wondering what sort of trials this couple will face in the future. Nagisa is a refreshing change from the super passive ukes in the manga I've read lately and I also like that they didn't immediately have sex. That kind of irks me when the couples immediately sleep together when they confess or worse before they confess.

The art's really nice too. I'm kind of embarrassed I didn't realise who the mangaka was since Minase Masara is one of my favorites. But this is just the kind of manga I would expect from such a gifted mangaka.

There's a ton of stories with a similar plot, two best friends where one has a crush on the other, plus one of them is super popular and all that... it's a yaoi cliche.
But I still enjoyed this story, the characters, the art...there was an unexpected twist... it was all pretty good! I really liked Taiga and Nagisa was a good guy too.
I personally would prefer such stories, where the best friend confesses, to be more of a character thing, you know. That the character has an inner struggle, worries, fears, and honestly thinks everything over because being confessed to by your best friend who's the same sex when you never thought about him romantically before isn't usually something you get be over and done with in a day or two.
So I felt the manga lacking there, because Nagisa was shocked at first, but his shock turned into love very fast and it seemed like only a few days later, he was already jealous and possessive of Taiga.
I wouldn't call the manga bad just because of that though, so I'd still recommend it as a light and fluffy read, as long as you aren't completely sick of yaoi cliches!

It was a good read! But somehow the plot seems short...but at least the story is well written. Wow, that woman is so terrible and nasty. It's kinda like making us, the real women feel like as if we're that horrible and evil. Man, Nagisa should have gave her a punch real hard on the face. Anyway, the story itself is smooth and the characters are quite interesting although I think there isn't much development with the characters. Still, it's recommendable!

Not exactly good, but not exactly bad. As usual from this author there is a decent set up that always falls very flat. This is cliched and lacks emotion and character development. Not sure why people fawn after her work so much when it's just not very good at all and shows little to no growth from story to story. The art is the same as ever, decent but kind of soulless and boring. No shading to speak. Read if you enjoy her work, skip if you don't .
