A series of varied yaoi oneshots about men who grapple with their real natures in the face of social approbation:

(1) Tomo and Keita live separately as male friends, both with girlfriends, until a heatwave, one summer, leads to homosexual experimentation. Has this summer fling revealed their true selves, or was it just a side affair to their main relationships?

(2) Even though Yoh is a responsible adult capable of making tough decisions, he has been inhibited by an unfortunate incident in his childhood where a daycare teacher insisted that it was wrong for 2 men to marry. Can he ever live as openly and courageously homosexual as Akira, the neighbour and old friend, for whom he nurtures a secret crush?

(3) A flower spirit transforms into a human shape in order to express his love for the gardener who cares for his kingdom.

(4) Ayasuji, a young salaryman is put out when he's ordered to spend a month hosting Ren, the wealthy heir to a family corporation who has taken a "Roman Holiday" in order to find out what it's like to live without the burden of executive level responsibilities and isolation. Ayasuji's injured feelings change as the full cost of Ren's upbringing is slowly revealed.

Touko Kawaii portrays human emotions with such a keen sense of observation and awareness, her stories are powerful and sensitive. A lot of people take issue with the simple, childlike quality of the artwork, but Touko's stories more than make up for issues with the drawings. Each story, although relatively short as the oneshots they are, is as rich and developed as most manga.

Great short/one shots stories that do not lack emotions being displayed. I liked the fact that the stories were different in their presentations; we have fantasy, school life, work/salaryman reality and others. They all were great in their settings and their storylines.
The only issue , I have is the character’s drawings .. They looked alike .. Unfortunately , the mangaka doesn’t seem to understand the individuality traits, she can add a mole, have different eye shapes , but they all looked similar. The other thing that I found funny is that black-haired character was stereotyped to be the seme in all stories !!

I just admire how strongly their relationships is, how they must bond to each other. One of my most favorite mangaka.

    A lot of people take issue with the simple, childlike quality of Touko Kawaii's artwork, but I think her stories more than make up for issues with the drawings because she has such a keen sense of observation about what makes people tick. Each story, although relatively short as the oneshots they are, is as rich and developed as most manga.

    i love the first two, how i wish there was more of them

    I wonder why I had such a wrong feeling when I read it for the first time? After that I only read the first story and never the others. Even though they are so good! I must have been an idiot for waiting so long to read all the stories again. Or maybe it's the age^^

    • Yezhik May 30, 2014 12:41 pm

      so I wasn't the only one...

  6. Kiochii March 4, 2014 10:04 am

    I like the stories for this book but seriously the teacher in the second story really pissed me off. I'm sorry but if you can't explain it a better way to a impressionable child then you don't deserve to teach kids that age. Never once have I ever seen a person say such a thing to a child!! other then that the stories were great. (FYI if I was a fellow teacher I would have straight up socked her) XD;; my first fly faster then my worst sometimes lol

    • marry October 1, 2014 11:45 am

      I agree with you, if someone ever say such a thing to my would be child i will have such a fit. She is a teacher for god-sake she should know better than to answer such a question like that

    Read chapter 1 again. Damn. "Can't show you mine here". I wanna see too >.<

    • Morcheeba August 18, 2014 11:58 am

      Cracks me up, time and time again ^^
      It might be a "oh, so romantic"-scene, but they're both like "that", so it's more like them :D

  8. Judo February 23, 2014 6:06 am

    The piercings... shit, the first couple is so f'n hot together. Damn it, man. >.<

    • Judo February 23, 2014 6:04 am

      No, you're not the only one. All the stories were f'n hawt. Augh, so good!!!

  9. steve February 1, 2014 7:48 pm

    Like 1st one :)

  10. Leah January 13, 2014 5:03 pm

    Loved all the stories wish some where longstanding the flower story brought me to tears at the end I want them to meet again

  11. dorishpp November 29, 2013 2:51 pm

    This is the second time I have read this book!! I liked the stories and enjoyed reading them!! I was glad on the first one when the two of them finally realize at the end that they loved each other!! I think all of them had their own unique story line on how one is in love!! I think the one with the best friends when they were little being told that boy on boy can't get married or being together to the point of one of them not going with his gut about loving his best friend and using girls for the sake of what that teacher said was hurtful!! I was glad that he realized that he really loved his best friend. Like I always say you can't help who you fall in love with you just have to bo after who you love if that person loves you too!! I like the flower one it was cute!! I enjoyed the last story too with the boy being sheltered so much to now having any fun!! I was glad that he found out how life can be outside the rich life!! All in all I liked all the stories and hope to read more!! thx D

    for me, i love the first two - i want to see more of those couples..
    i also like the last two stories, however it felt a little sad...
    definitely recommended

    I literally got made when I couldn't remember the title of this manga, because it's seriously my favorite and I wanted to read it so baddd..again!!!

    • Midori January 12, 2014 11:49 pm

      Me too, i love this manga especially the first story but i forget the name and i was looking for it for almost a year

  14. badmoonligh89 July 4, 2013 6:11 am

    the 3rd story was by far the best.

  15. me July 1, 2013 5:36 am

    I loved it so much! I was crying for the third story i want more for that one please!

  16. Nami July 1, 2013 4:48 am

    I love it so much

  17. Vv May 15, 2013 2:49 am

    The first story is truly a classic that every yaoi fan should read, it's only a one-shot yet it manages to rival entire series with its emotional power (and hotness). I didn't care about the other stories because the first one just overshadows them.

    • crazy pumpkin^^ October 10, 2013 8:15 am

      i feel the same :)

  18. KyoZa April 9, 2013 1:21 pm

    The art of Ch 1 & 2 is very nice. I like the first story, one thing leads to another, makes it more realistic & natural.
    I would like the second one too if the Uke stuck with the Semi only, didn&rsquo;t fool around with other guys.

  19. taichou April 9, 2013 6:52 am

    i wish the first story was actually a loooooooong or atleast 2-3 books and my desires.

    • chilifherii.. May 22, 2013 12:47 pm

      yes, us and our desires..
