Konoe, a high school student, is confused about his sexuality. He meets Hikaru in the sleazy gay district, and sleeps with him. They begin to play at being lovers, but Konoe's heart belongs to Atori, his friend and classmate. Can Konoe come to terms with his sexuality and reveal his feelings to Atori, and where do Hikaru's true feelings lie?

I actually read this manga once before a long time ago. I knew I liked it but I didn't remember what happened so I decided to pick it up and read it once more. I'm glad I reread it, this manga is full of drama and has a great story and characters that make the story just as interesting.

Not once was I bored with this story, reading it from beginning to end it was great. The story centers around the characters Konoe, Hikaru, Atori and Tooru.They all have different personality's and you will fall in love with them right away. This story will even leave you guessing on who is going to end up with who.

The romance is slow, building up to where the couples start to fall in love. Sure the sex comes a bit fast but the falling in love part takes tome so it's not insta-love which is another thing on what I like about this manga.

It's a bit of an old manga so the style is out there but even if the style isn't to your liking the story makes up for it big time. The characters all look different except for maybe one or two but you will pick them apart fast. The mangaka doesn't put a lot of detail into her characters or scenes so again it's mostly for the story that I like this manga. I'm also sure that I've read a few of her other manga's and I liked them just as much as this one.
