When second-year college student Takamasa Natori gets dragged to a double date by his friend, Takeda, he meets Junpei Kisugi. The two hit it off instantly; and while both are guys, they are soon getting along as if they have known each other for years. But when Natori hears that Kisugi is bisexual, he doesn’t know what to think. The two remain friends but things heat up when Natori runs into Kisugi’s current and slightly jealous lover Tohru…

My Thoughts on the Manga
This is a sweet fun manga to read, I love how the plot was not to mention everything went real good for a one volume book. Sometimes with this type of plot one volume isnt enough to tell the story but they did good.

This characters of this manga are so cute, you have the main character Natori who at first thought his releationship with Kisugi was just friendship cause they got along so well. Though later you learn he started to develop feelings for Kisugi and soon confessed them to Kisugi. It was so cute and akward at that moment. I even felt myself blush at one part. Hey if a manga makes me go all crazy and headdesk lots  then it's a good story!

The romance in this story is between fast and slow, cause Natori was straight at first and Kisugi is bi but is already dating someone. Soon Kisugi starts to develop feelings for Natori and they start to go out. The didn't fully did it till the middle of the book and for a one shot manga that is good cause it isn't all at once. 

Manga Design
This manga has a great design, since most of the manga i posted so far are all from 2001-2004 this is the style at that time. There isn't a lot of detail in the design unless you look at the chapter pictures but it all works out. The design is simple but lovely at the same time. Sometimes there face's are missing eyes but it works with the style. There is not as much talking all on one page most of the time as you can see on the left lol, it's only since they are on phones that it's like that haha.

It's a great story, the romance is great and the plotline is great. You should diffently read this manga if your into Yaoi, if not don't read it.

  1. Looks good. It drives me crazy sometimes when guys are best friends after only a few minutes, but I see it happen in real life, not just in stories, so at least the book isn't completely unbelievable. Thanks for the review!
