From Shinmakoku Scanlations:

1-3) A Place for Half a Rent
Shiraishi, a hardworking college student who smiles even when he's upset, is openly gay. His family and coworkers have a hard time accepting him, with the exception of his part-time job manager, Kanzaki, who doesn't smile even when he's happy. When Shiraishi can no longer force himself to keep living with his friendly but unfaithful boyfriend, Kanzaki makes him an offer: “Want to come to my place?”

Shiraishi accepts the friendly offer, which may have been made with some more-than-friendly intentions.

4-5) I'm Serious in My Own Way
Yukito Shibata is in a pickle. He has 1... no, 2 problems! His ex-boyfriend, Yoshioka Seiji, wants them to come back together, but it was Yoshioka who betrayed him in the first place. So he's having second thoughts. Now his step-nephew, Utsui Keigo, confesses his love for him! Keigo is 7 years younger, but he's very persistent. Which one should he accept? The whole story is told from two points of view. The first part is from Yoshioka's point of view, and the second part from Yukito's point of view. A sweet story about letting go of an old love and finding a new one.

6) Don't Be So Strict
Is it so easy to have an affair? Megumu wonders in pain, when he finds Keiichi has cheated on him for the fifth time in three years. Being poor, with no money and only a part time job, it's already hard enough for him to keep living, and taking care of Keiichi's needs. But he runs away from it all... just to learn - the hard way - of how an affair can blossom, and what consequences it might bring! Will the experience keep their relationship alive, or will it separate them in the end? A romantic story about how a love can endure even the greatest ordeal in life.

For the most part I really liked this manga, but then Chapter 6 came along. I hate when the person who's cheated on (repeatedly, btws) continues to forgive/go back to the person who cheated on them.

I really don't like the third story after reading the first two (couldn't get into it for some reason), but the first story was quite decent. I really like it! Thus I'm rating a 10 for the first story and maybe the 2nd story. It was also pretty good.

I've only gotten through the first story, but I'm considering leaving the rest unread. The art is awesome and the characters are cute, but like the last post, I felt it dragged on forever. Not only that, I was confused; it was as if I had missed multiple pages somehow.

Okay, the art is good, the translation is average, the stories aren't new but not boring. But I could NOT get into ANY of the oneshots. It just dragged and dragged for me. Nothing too interesting, and no real chemistry between the characters for me.

I wanted to like it, but I didn't.

one BIG theme in this tankoubon seems to be cheating lovers. And jerkasses. And open relationship.

I think I've been reading too much "CHEATING = DRAMA ! END OF THE WORLD NOOO!" kind of manga, in which case, the decision to normalize them, compared to those manga, became a quite brilliant one. I understand there are guys with open relationships

As for everything else, it's usual Kai Asou. Quite slice-of-lifey, quite angsty, and the guys all look similar.

And very cute chibis. Very. Cute. Chibis.
