The following content is intended for mature audiences and may contain sexual themes, gore, violence and/or strong language. Discretion is advised.

Plot: It's about two best friends, Tamio and Takashi. The development of a friendship to something more as they grow up.

Living his life in rural Japan, Tamio is immediately intrigued by Takashi, the blond haired city boy who transfers into his elementary school. But Takashi is actually half Japanese, and despite his appearance he doesn't even know English and loves eating Japanese food even Tamio can't abide.

Tamio and Takashi become friends, and despite his perplexity with Takashi's foreign appearance, Tamio quickly develops a strong attachment to the other boy. Tamio earnestly hopes that he and Takashi can stay friends forever. But Takashi remains dissatisfied with life out in the boonies, insisting that someday he's going to leave all this behind.

Yet Tamio continues to hope and to do anything he can to ensure that Takashi will stay with him--or take him along--no matter where he goes in life, with an intense, endearing, wistful sincerity perhaps telling of sentiments more complicated than Tamio might think.

the art is pretty cute in the last couple of volumes but there wasnt much plot to the story, then it just kind of ended. takashi didnt seem like he was serious about being with tamio (especially in that extra after the last chapter, whats the deal with that crap?). also there's no yaoi in this so its tagged wrong and there's barely any shounen-ai. its mostly one-sided on tamio's part and there's only one kiss (that hardly even counts as a kiss) in the whole six volumes. i feel like the mangaka wasnt serious about this series at all lol.

eeeeeee cute and leaves room for the imagination
aka the story cuts out basically right when things begin and my heart got jerked around a lot LOL but still it was worth reading I liked it

This was such a cute manga that was easy to relate to! The overall story was heartwarming while still being unpredictable and angsty. I loved it!!!

Would have like to see more chemistry between Takashi and Tamio

    It's interesting in its own way. I know it's a teeny tiny bit boring but I actually laughed in some jokes here so I ignored the reason I felt bored. And it's labeled as shounen-ai yaoi so I kinda figured the plot has to be this way. I just wanted to give this manga much credit because of the mangakas consistency. I thought ...when the uke (I forgot the name so i put "uke") confessed his feelings towards the seme (i just think they could reverse position in the future so forgive me if I'm wrong) it became a hard boiled drama that the reader has to sniff/snot all over but not. It's just supposed to be this way and nothing. I just randomly thought if any of you get the feeling tho.

    How could they end it just when it was getting good blehhhh so mean!

    sooo much silliness, but surprisingly touching too. my heart went out to tamio. he's so incredibly earnest & aDORable. he spent his whole life chasing after takashi, kinda like a puppy, that i wanted SOO MUCH for takashi to return his feelings. it's really a sweet story between two friends. wish there was more development & less randomness, but i still enjoyed it. only thing that SUCKED BALLS were are the horrible, mean & irritating female characters. god! how can a female writer do that?? the only women who were decent were the moms (NOT GRANDMA, geez fuck that psycho) and that asai girl. i had to calm myself a lot in order to keep reading, cuz the women just GOT ON MY NERVES. ohhh but tamio...there is no way you can't like him. <3 the art grows on you too ^_^

    I kept hoping Takashi would be the "uke" and Tamio the "seme" or there off. But as typical, the mangaka decided to make the foreigner the seme who is mostly clueless. I don't really feel much romantic love from Takashi, while it overflows in Tamio. Personally, I'd have hoped that instead of being a wallflower/angel, Tamio would become aggressive passionate and continue to profess his love on Takashi, since with his wishy-washy character, he needs someone to push the right buttons. Yet, Tamio is really portrayed as the perfect "girl". He cooks, sews, is courteous, kind, and meek. He's passive, and yearning yet not acting on his desires. It had a nice flow in the beginning, but it got disrupted. The later chapter made me sigh. Hope its better latter (but since its been untranslated for this long, I feel its best to leave it at the kiss scene and imagine all went yaoi after).

    the story is full of silly scenes. it'd been nice if at least half of those 24 (?) chapters focused on their adult life... just saying

  11. Anon May 6, 2014 3:26 am

    i got sora and roxas vibes from the cover. agh.

  12. Guest ;) February 22, 2014 4:28 pm

    I think this was rather cute. It shows their relationship starting from a really young age to young adults. I thought they were romantically together by the end (b/c of the kiss and promise to stay in their home town), but that extra chapter (Textbook of Love) was sketchy. I guess the mangaka was showing a moment of weakness in which after Takeshi learned his lesson, he went back to Tamio 9^9 Well either way (best friends or lovers) you get the feeling that they will be together forever~

    Urgh rereading this again and still cried I love this manga very much though I prefer reading those with beautiful drawings. This manga is so sweet yet sad becuz of Tomio's unrequited love and ugh taka shi is so slow to realise!!!! Although I'm not really satisfied about the ending as there's no much progress in their relationship so I feel that sth is missing. I really feel very bad for Tomio though :(

    • Aki January 12, 2014 6:24 pm

      A kiss is not enough!!!!!!

    • ^u^ February 22, 2014 4:36 pm

      Don't worry, it didn't stay unrequited ;)

    • Yade March 5, 2015 10:49 pm
      Don't worry, it didn't stay unrequited ;) @^u^

      its not balanced , didnt u read the extra XD u think takeshi cheats some1 he loves same amount like tamio loves him?

  14. airuri September 18, 2013 12:46 am

    i love the train chapter .... hahahaha poor A-Kun xD

  15. Glass August 16, 2013 6:20 am

    It looked so promising, the style looks great and I loved the splash pages. At first there was a story but it all dwindled to awful slapstick and women here are portrayed as something evil or dumb.

    I just stopped, it was that awful for me.

    • Yaoi is my food. November 3, 2013 12:00 am

      Though women are evil and dumb. Well, they can be, I mean.

    • Vampire Queen December 12, 2013 8:55 am

      @ Yaoi is my food : Dont generalise, I can same thing about men, being evil and dumb is not specific to one gender. While in some yaoi manga they have females as the evil character its not true for all.

  16. Kase-Kun July 20, 2013 10:51 pm

    The main character is really annoying, i don't like him or this story much cause it doesn't really add up, and its all over the place but it's pretty funny-ish.

  17. Nica8860 June 7, 2013 2:37 am

    The story was pretty much all jokes, not yaoi sadly, more hints of shounen ai. Then again the author was never straight forward in making their love mutual. Sure Takeshi said they were dating but there were no signs of more than friends or cohabiting in college etc. so I am sad for Tamio who has to put up with that. After all mutual love is great but if Takeshi is half-hearted then I don't know. I wish the author had just thrown in some sort of I'm scared of sex and a short like hinted sex scene or something where I can be assured that they had sex and are together together. She does hint at the perspectives of gay but never really defines it clearly etc and still Takeshi never clearly reciprocated his feelings, more like went with the flow.

    OMG it just goes on for-eeeee-veeeerrr in just rambling and stupid plot whatsoever.

    • Guest ;) February 22, 2014 4:27 pm

      This is 'Slice of Life' genre. Not just 'Shounen-ai'. There is no continuous plot, just snapshots of these two young people's lives.

  19. Anonymous May 17, 2013 5:29 pm

    Is it yaoi?

    • Yaoi is my food. November 3, 2013 12:01 am

      I hope so, other than that I wouldn't be trying to read it.

    • Guest ;) February 22, 2014 4:31 pm

      No, just shounen-ai. SPOILER: the farthest they show the two getting is a kiss (she draws it from a distance too) XD
