From September Scanlations:

With a father who's a singer, a mother who's a movie star, and an older brother, Shougo, who's the lead vocalist for the super-popular band The Crusherz, Sena Izumi, an otaku college student is the only dull one born into this super famous and talented family. He loves Magical Girl LalaLulu and is working hard to become a mangaka, but one day he winds up appearing in a TV commercial he just can't turn down. There, he's reunited with Ichijou Ryouma, the super-popular young actor he costarred with on a project ten years prior.

No honestly I would have been turned off for real xD
Drawings were good but the story was soooo lame...
I liked none of the characters. It was so cheesy, so cliché.. wtf ? *facepalm*
I wondered if I wasn't actually reading a shitty shoujo ^^'
Please people you should read more yaoi and you'll understand why this one is bad.

Nothing special in it. Especially the cross-dressing thing made me almost throw up. This "popular" manga/anime has all the cliches I hate. That usual "Cutie-pie" uke and the normal seme (I don't really know how to describe it... The seme just can't restrain himself from wanting the uke). The only cliche that I didn't find in this manga (even after being so cliche-ful itself) was that it doesn't have any "rape"! The first time of mine finding a manga with no rape!
I'm not hating. The art is very cute and fluffy. Would totally recommend to anyone who is finding something cute to read.
I also agree with lifeincircuit and hervor . As said, nothing unique in this manga. Just your average seme-running-after-cute-girly-uke thingy. I've read enough mangas to know those usual contents. Totally not for me.

It's basically a mixing pot of shoujo cliches with a generous dollop of Yaoi added in. I think its quite cute, and very funny. However, cliches are prevalent throughout, and not all of the characters are like able.

The seme, though he is rude toward the uke at first, soon adopts a refreshingly respectful attitude that is maintained throughout. The uke is weird and his motives are sometimes hard to understand, but he's a funny character.

It's not a super great manga, basically a fluffy, soft, yaoi version of skip beat.

I like this mangaka but I dont like this manga because its feels like there is no real emotions in there. I think that it s based on how the characters are not "character" but just uke and seme, they are not unique at all this kind of mainstream characters are just soo predictable that kills all the story and pleasure of reading. You do know how they are going to kiss, how going to respond the situations etc. Yeah it can be good yaoi but not for me.

I just read one volume, so my review is just based on that.
This manga is VERY shoujo-y, it's basically the exact format of a fluffy shoujo romance, the uke even looks like a girl too/cross dresses. That said, it's pretty cheesy/forced, yet it still had me smiling and laughing throughout the entire volume. This is a nice light read for a comedy, but I wouldn't expect anything serious in the romance/yaoi department, other than what you normally get from generic shoujo mangas. I don't mind reading this to kill time, but personally i prefer for angsty/serious yaois.

i freaking love this manga. the drawings are perfect, the sex scenes are awesome (teehee) and that its yaoi.
but as the director guy pointed out in chapter 20, ryouma doesn't trust izumi. its nice that he gets worried and all but sometimes you gotta let go and trust sometimes but i can understand why he feels that way because of the sexual harassments but ryouma should know izumi and what kind of person he is.

I was always kind of borderline with yaoi, mostly into one-shot NaruSasu stuff, BUT THIS MANGA TAKES THE CAKE. I LOVE this yaoi! And waiting for chapter 17 is the utter WORST spot to stop at. ; n ; I really love Ryouma and his personality is soooo funny. xD Izumi can be a little clutz at times but his reasoning and personality is hilarious as well! And I'm REALLY fond of his otaku-ness. xD

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I was really worried about Shougo being in some type of triangle with the lead and Ryouma, as he was on the cover of the first few chapters, but I'm so pleased he's not!

I love this yaoi and honestly Ryouma is the best guy ever. So funny. Some scenes are a little repetitive (like the spontaneous kissing) and thus lose their impact, but still, maybe because I am new to the yaoi fandom, I love this manga. wink

I think I'm probably too old for this. It's not the worst thing I've ever read, but it is painfully cheesy. The characters mainly do whatever you would expect them to for each of their stereotypes with little diversion, but there is enough to make reading bearable. It definitely has a shoujo feel to it as compared to most of the BL I typically enjoy. The art is also just ok. It feels amateurish. It does have an upbeat, positive feel to it which I suppose is nice in its own way. Overall not my thing though. I prefer more realism outside of comedy and this just isn't all that funny.

I've had this on my "to read" list for sooooo long, and I eventually got around to reading it today... and oh my god I absolutely love it. I'm seriously annoyed at myself for not reading this gem sooner!
The art is just gorgeous, and all the characters are extremely loveable -- the main 4 all have their own little quirks...
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Izumi is a cute, easily bribed otaku; Shougo has a major brother complex (although not a sexual one thank goodness); Rei is a tsundere mother-hen figure; and Ryouma is like an adorable puppy. And the icing on the cake is that both semes are actually caring guys, one of whom even turns down sex! ( ゚ Д゚)

I honestly can't describe just how great this manga is, so just give it a try yourself if you're after a feel-good story. It'll definitely leave you with a warm fuzzy feeling and a goofy grin on your face ^__^
