Law student, Arikawa Youichi, has portentous dreams about someone named Misaki, an enigmatic and formless "presence" activated by a pretty floral crystal pendant that Arikawa suddenly found in his possession (the result of a mishap), never realizing that Misaki Shouta is a man whom he met by accident and happenstance, on two prior occasions, and heard about by rumour, once, thus setting the scene for a story about predestined love. Upon actually identifying Misaki, at university, Arikawa instantly declares his love and fascination. His straightforwardness comes across too forcefully to Misaki, who veers off, but since Arikawa has been hired by Misaki's professor as an assistant, they are forced to share time and space in the botany lab where Misaki researches microorganisms in soil cultures. As they grow accustomed to each other, Satoshi Kawahata, a parental authority/conflicted would-be lover from Misaki's past, tries to re-assert himself as the central person in Misaki's heart, revealing the back-story behind Misaki's reticence. Can Misaki overcome his insecurities and defeat his loneliness?

This story has many nice touches, including the symbolic language of flowers, the differences between free expression and withholding, a secret garden, the magnificent prequel Hana No Miyako De "The Flower Capital" [http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/hana_no_miyako_de/] and a twinkly "magical fairy-godfather" type. After the initial declaration by Arikawa, it moves along at a fairly slow and realistic pace, but I like the introduction of subconscious elements, like the dreams and the connection with the grandfather. The artwork is beautiful, too, with Takarai Rihito's delicate line drawings enhanced by the floral subject matter, but some of these drawings are undermined by poor quality scans and cleaning, especially in the first volume. Other than that, this is a must-read!

It was okay. I wish the backgrounds where more creative. Pure black and white and no patterns or texture makes it blah. However story is good!

    ahh i just noticed they changed the cover art ~ <3 i love this story--it also kind of gives me a little consolation about hana no miyako de knowing that at least akira's grandson found happiness ╥﹏╥

    Um but they are supposed to put yaoi in the genre cuz it has a sex scene, usually what i know is that shonen-ai only don't have sex scenes. Or am i wrong?

    I feel for the professor
    He has outlived his lover and now an awesome professor to these young folks.
    If I remember, Misaki is the grandson of the professor's lover.
    I love love love these kinds of stories, especially this author!

    An absolutely sweet and cute story. I love how it was just a beautiful plot, with no rape or overly evil or malicious people. A pretty realistic feeling story. And I adore Arikawa and Misaki they are just so pleasant.

    I didn't know misaki was Akira s grandson asdfghjkl at least he has a happy ending... I really love this.

  15. Frankii♡ August 20, 2015 4:46 am

    What kind of makes me sad is that they don't stay together. In the prequel Hana no Miyako De, at the end it was in the far future and Akira already passed away , and arikawa meets Akira's grandson. This means they didn't stay together as lovers right?

    • Frankii♡ August 22, 2015 1:27 am

      Sorry I confused myself. Disreguard this

    I hate That glass-guy types who don't want to accept their true self . Be yourself and be happy

    • Padee August 17, 2015 5:44 am

      Actually for him I think it's hard for him to be himself because of love. He loved his mother and wanted her to be happy, therefore wanted to meet her expectations even if he has to turn his back on who he is. Love and fear are often major factors in the capability to being ourselves and not being able to be ourselves. So I just felt very sad for him, then relieved when he finally accepted himself.
