The successor of the Tsujimura clinic, Motoharu has always held his childhood friend, Hazumi Akira, close to his heart. He confessed to Akira and then was rejected. Even so, he still entered the same university and same department as Akira. Ever since the confession, the two have been distancing each other, but Akira suggested that they make up and for the first time in a while, they walk home together. But on the way back, Akira suddenly kisses Motoharu, causing Motoharu's hope to grow. However, the next day, Akira tells him to “forget it”, causing Motoharu to blame Akira...

I just finished reading the first story, for the second time and as the first one I read it my heart broke.
Everyone wants to be with the people they love but they can't and this is just too sad to be described by words. In the last chapter, Motoharu's words "it's already too late" made me really want to cry...
It's a beautiful, sad and heartbreaking love story. Within this small chapters you can feel all the characters emotions, I read other short mangas but this is the only one that gave me all this feelings and make me understand how deep their love is in so short pages.
I really love Takarai Rihito's works beacause they gave me a lot of emotions, the glance of the characters express everything, love, hopes, sadness...
I will follow her works forever but this one will always have his space in my heart.
I absolutely can't not recommend it.
(after this seriuos post i'm going to cry in a corner T.T, see ya)

Both of the stories made me an emotional wreck for completely different reasons.

Motoharu's affection for Akira is thwarted by family expectations and cultural standing — NOT, as one would expect, on his side, but levied upon the hapless Akira, whose responsibility toward his mother's benefactors outweighs his personal choices. This story is, both, tragic and sweet, and both the young men still manage to express what is in their hearts, even though duty supercedes individualism in the time and setting of this story. Takarai Rihito's art is magnificent, and there is continuation of this story in the magnificent story, Hana No Mizu Shiro, or "Only the Flower Knows" [http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/hana_no_mizo_shiru/] ... If you love yaoi, definitely read both of these!

    I absolutely love this manga. It was so touching and meaningful. Also I love that it didn't have the cliche ending of all the other stories..

    Why must be arrange marriages such a big thing in the past, I hate that fact, marriage without love, marriage out of business, such a bullshit. I love these stype of stories from old times but I can't bear the pain coming from it, since in nearly all of them is one of the main characters getting married and everything just falls apart. All you can hold onto are memories. That's just tragic.

    It's fine sensei .... It's not like my heart was a vital organ anyway ╥﹏╥

    why it has to end like this?!? so sad... I can't bear with this.can't stop tearing. sensei, why you have to make me completely into thier relationship and then just cruelly break my heart like this. so cruel. this is the saddest story ever... but yet beautiful and warm too. but i dont like this ending dont just end like this . it's hurt. so painful.

    and in the end, Motoharu takes all bad fortunes with him and the only great blessing he got he gives it to Akira. damn I cant stop crying TT-TT
    Sensei, you know, This manga increases the global warming because it makes me waste so much tissue. I even cry(so hard) while taking shower just like heroine in the drama . TT., TT

    if only Akira had accepted his feeling since the first time Motoharu confessed to him. they will be able to spend much more time together.

    damnnnn i already done reading this 10 times. the 1st time i read this manga is while i was listening Rixton's song"whole". and after that, every time i listen to this song i cant help thinking about this manga and then i really cant bear myself to not cry. this song is one of my most fav songs, i really like listening to it but just like i said, every time it makes me cry because of thinking of this manga. i may able to solve this problem just by trying to forget this manga. but i dont wanna, too. I really dont wanna forget this manga even a bit. although it's so painful every time i think about it. it still so beautiful and is a precious memory of mine.

    i really hate Akira's mom (or maybe she isnt his mom? I refer to that old woman that asks Akira about the marriage) can't she see how hurt Akira is? it apears clearly in his eye. you damn stupid and selfish bitch!!!!!

    This story somehow reminds me of the melody of Chopin's 'Tristesse'. A song for parting lovers. I hope those who like classical music listens to it while they reread this one.

    You hear that? That's the sound of my heart breaking... TT-TT
