To break from the monotonous summer holidays, Okunuki decides on a spur of the moment to visit his senpai’s farm. There, he meets his senpai’s son, Iku. However on the same day, his senpai collapses from fatigue and Okunuki steps in to help– partly because he’s intrigued by Iku. With this opportunity, Okunuki begins to care for Iku and Iku also starts to let his guard down…

This was actually a really cute story and doesn’t end how you think it will. For Okunuki (our main charcter) to fall in love with a straight man it’s always hard. Not to mention that the man is so slow at picking up people’s feelings that he doesn’t notice that Okunuki loves him. I wanted to smack the guy for not noticing but then you notice the son and you forget all about the straight man and you cheer for the younger man Iku and Okunuki to be together.
The setting takes place on a farm and of corse many happenings occur around the farm.
Okunuki is only just visiting his old friend at the farm but decides to stay and help out when his friend gets hurt. That’s when he meets the son Iku and learns his history and how he doesn’t like to be touch. There is a few other problems but our main couple pulls through and ends up together. The friend not knowing anything marry’s the girl of his dreams and everyone is happy basically.
Cute story and I do recommend you read this story if your given the chance since it’s very cute.  
The characters are mostly done in heavy black stokes but it does look great in the together look and feel of the manga. There is plenty of detail put into the the backgrounds of the manga and some detail put into the actual people.
