On the two-year anniversary of the death of his mother, Masaki Kuzumi returns to the beautiful manor home where she once lived. There, he meets the kind, devoted dog trainer Yuu Kanai and instantly responds to the younger man's sweet nature... but something behind Yuu's smile hints at a secret darkness that Kuzumi knows all too well. Can these two men band together and shine the light of forgiveness on all of their past regrets? Endless Comfort tells the story of two lost souls whose wounded hearts have kept them on the fringes of life and love for what seems like an eternity. Can the beautiful but sad heir to a fortune find a true friend in a member of the staff for his family estate... or will his "alternative" lifestyle scare the innocent young man away for good?

I liked this one, I did. I guess it's just 'cuz I'm a psychology major, I couldn't buy the ending. I just have a problem with comfort sex, and therefore, felt the ending was rushed. As everyone else said, though, I really liked Sakura-sensei's slow build up and her expressiveness.

Indeed I was blown away with this creation by Sakura Sakuya. Beautiful artwork with many emotional facial expressions and a touching love story with a good pace through the manga. Long time I read a yaoi who isn´t focused on the sex but about feelings and emotions. It´s all about the heart. Really really recommend readers to try this!

I've never seen such beautiful and touching moments before,all the movements and expressions,very detailed ,it doesnt rush to the sex scenes,not even the kisses ,the whole "gentle/slow touch/hug/dont be afraid i would never hurt you" feeling is very realistic and effective!somehow makes your heart melt a bit<3 worth a read!

Oh god. This mangaka draws such wonderfully expressive faces. From widened eyes in surprise to apologetic brows with a tender smile, each had me staring just a little longer in appreciation. The pace felt a little slow at first but the story and art more than made up for that. I guess you can say that the mangaka was being thorough and careful with the details so as to lend credibility to the story. Well, it worked. I'm sold on this. Like Nanatsusaya, I'd be looking out for more of this mangaka's works.

This is one of the most touching mangas I've ever read. The art is really really beautiful (the expresive eyes of Kuzumi still keep me sighing...), and the plot is very good. I love how the feelings of the main characters are developed, and even the secondaries are not just the typical plain characters. The way Sakura explains the past of Yuu is so elegant and moving! And...oh my god! The scene at the graveyard! It was so full of details, the different movements and expressions of Kuzumi and Yuu really didn't need any word beetween them.
The sex scenes were one of the sweetest I've ever seen and the end is so tender that it made me almost cry.
What else can I say? I'm in love with this manga and with Sakura Sakuya.I hope I could read more and more of this mangaka. Please?
