A bit shallow

I really appreciate the fact that the MCs are in their 40s (and actually look it) but beyond that this story is lacking originality. It feels kind of insubstantial—there's no emotional development, no reason for their feelings. It was a bit of a let down. Not terrible, but not special.

This was exactly the manga I needed.

Kanda Tokizou, 42 years old, has been in unrequited love with his best friend from high school, Shiba Ryuuji, for 25 years. They depend on each other, and have met her and there for a beer and laugh ever since they finished school.
But after a few things change through the flow of time, Kanda finally has a chance to change things.
However, is it even possible to have a relationship after being friends for 25 years? With a friend who is straight?

I love the realistic and emotional side of this manga, not everything is easy in life, and it will lead to heated arguments, broken pride, and time that needs to be caught up.

To see two guys in their 40s try to understand each other was heartwarming and sensitive, and made me cry while reading it. This manga focuses a lot more on emotions, feelings and character development than on sexual content, so I would recommend this manga even to people who are not into BL. I would even go so far to call this manga more Bara/Gei Komi than BL, since it feels neither fetishistic, nor guided by heteronormative romance tropes typical of BL - it's a gay love story between two grown men.

It's an honest, emotional and deep romance of two old friends finding each other. It has consent, many emotions, and a big heart underneath every moment. These men communicate, they do mistakes, they apologise, and their ending will make anyone smile.

This small gem is now in my personal favourites, not many romance stories have touched me this deeply, and I certainly would love to read more of them. Give it a shot, it's short, but all the more sweet.

oyajis! yes!

This was a very straightforward and cute manga. My one complaint is that it's a regular run-of-the-mill childhood friends story with pining, just aged up a bunch. Damn Tokizou, that's some unrequited love olympics he's trying to win here! Uda-kun is the best straight wingman and one of the best characters in this manga. I'm a little disappointed that we never got to see what his girlfriend looked like xD I also appreciated that she is apparently a fujioshi as well LOL
