On the first day of Shima's new job he met a man with a hangover in the elevator. That was his first meeting with his new boss, Togawa. Though Togawa seemed rude and cross, Shima was drawn to the kindness beneath his rough facade. Both men harbor a painful past but unlike Togawa, who was open with his feelings, Shima seems unable to move on.

Not as good as Saezuru, but cute.

I had no idea that this was from the same mangaka who wrote Saezuru Tori wa Habatakanai. I'm aghast, because I know I have totally found the greatest yaoi mangaka ever. Although this manga wasn't super totally great, it kicked off pretty well and I actually appreciate the side story since the main one seems to be in a ditch at the moment. I love Deguchi and the drama is completely real. And although Shima was likeable at first, he's going down the path of the crying, lacking in confidence typical uke...

Unlike Yashiro and Kage and D (in Saezuru Tori wa Habatakanai), the characters in this story kind of "fall in love" without a reason. Especially at the begin, it felt a little rushed and without any...reason! But I forgave that, because it was obvious that Togawa and Shima are meant to be. But Onoda beginning to like Shima was strange, and happened...because of what? He looked cute? Idk, it just lacked the resolve Yashiro/Kage/D (I can't remember the name) had, but I'm glad the mangaka got better in this and made progress. The drawings are nice though. 7/10

OH, AND I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE SHIMA'S EX-BF <3 I just love the whole concept of him still loving Shima and all. It's cute as hell, I want to see sooo bad.

When I read manga most of the time if their really good I'l revisit them once or twice, but this manga has me coming back so much I've lost track of how many times I've read it. To me Yoneda sensei always has this slow but keep you on your toes plot and character development, and I love it. It's not rushed and not slow either, it make me feel like I'm there with the characters because the emotions are well displayed. One thing is for sure I love every character in this manga so much I can't even pick a favorite. Basically this is a masterpiece in my opinion as well as her other works! (^.^)

This manga got me crying river over how beautiful their love is. I'm deeply touched. This is definitely one of the best yaoi I've read so far and one of the very few that managed to make me cry.
Absolutely recommended, whether you're a yaoi fan or not.

This is heartbreaking. Why do I do this to myself? No, Doushitemo Furetakunai is not a tragedy. It's love, and that is why it hurts so much. It is so beautiful, so sincere, so unlike anything else. I don't see why would anyone find this anything other than magnificent. It is so conventional you could've been reading a book on real life, and yet it breaks every convention you can possibly know of, striping out of any cliché, giving you nothing but itself in the most beautiful, simple form: again, love.

I came across this series and my eyes twitched a little. I have never heard of the artist, I read no review, no line from the summary, the art didn't seem anything in particular, and the title sounded cliché enough. I was so wrong, and I am so grateful I didn't give up before I even started, which is something that happens more than I would like to, really.

With this manga I laughed, I cried, I lost my breath, I nearly lost my consciousness, and the worst thing of all, I remembered what I thought was buried deep within me. It was a turmoil of emotions, from beginning to end. I seldom give a straight 10/10 to a one-volume thing, but Doushitemo Furetakunai deserves so much more than that. When it was over, I just felt so happy it was ridiculous.

I guess I can't ever go back to the cheesy, clichéd, uke-based wussiness of mainstream m/m manga. After this wonderful piece of art, I am done with it. I can't thank Yoneda Kou enough, and I can't wait to read more of this artist's work.

Usually when I re-read a series I have liked before, I still enjoy it, but tend to find many flaws. I have read this at least five times now and I still love it to pieces. This includes the side stories. Yoneda Kou is absolutely amazing. I don't know how anyone could see this as typical. Some things may be similar, but she takes it to a completely different level.

Every once in a while I read this manga again. It seriously gets to me every time. My stomach gets all tingly and stuff, and I start feeling like nothing can ever stop feelings of love. Gosh, this sounds cheesy. Whatever, if you read it you'll get what I mean.

This is seriously the best romance manga I've read. It is so simple and subtle. It doesn't need tons of phony drama. It just is. The art and the facial expressions are, as usual with YONEDA Kou, superior in every way. This really is the best. Anyone who hasn't read it yet better get to it soon.

So cute!!!! This is a great manga, not just a good yaoi manga, but a good manga in general. It will make you laugh, cry and love the characters. The plot was pretty generic, but it was executed really well, the characters were all developed and original and the the romance is adorable. This is a must read manga

as mentioned, i love how this mangaka can draw character expressions so well. it really conveys a lot of emotion from the characters despite the dialogue sometimes being a bit confusing. i have a penchant for angst, so of course i ate this story up.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
mangaka mentioned in the afterward that a lot of readers wanted a man like togawa to marry. THIS IS SO TRUE ;_; i felt the same way lol. i even cried when shima did, relating to his regret that a relationship with togawa would mean that he would never father children. BECAUSE IT'S SO TRUE. togawa would make an amazing father. god, im such an old woman, lol. *sobs forever*

can't believe i kept putting off reading this for so long. the humor in this story is one of a kind, it's what you'd expect from an indie movie. the characters felt real, it had a fresh take on the whole romance genre i'm used to in most of the manga. my favourite thing definitely has to be the pacing. usually things get dragged out or they're too rushed, but this one took it's time to go where it needed going and it nailed it. needless to say i'm impressed.

i love this, very realistic and believable.
i must even say that i had almost exactly the same experience somehow with shima. i can really relate to him. *sigh*
but back to the manga. it was very emotional and really dramatic. i love how opposite the characters are and the past that really shook them that made them behave that way. the story is very sweet and subtle and just filled with emotions that are needed to be released!
but i didn't like how it ended! because they were stuck in a long distance relationship(LDR).
LDR is a very hard relationship a lot of bad things can happen if they were to be in a misunderstanding. i wish that the manga artist prolonged it and made their relationship more stable
