Ok I gave this one a 4 star. Now let me explain. I did this because the beginning of this manga confused the shit out of me and I was lost as hell. But as it continued further and tied all of it together it made things clearer. I did find this to be a very heart warming light romance yaoi. It was cute and the ending was a great ribbon on the present. I did find it cute. But it did take awhile for things to happen. But you don't even realize this because you are so drawn into it. Good story. Drawing style is ok not my top 5 but much better then others. Character build up could have been a little better along with establishing the story in the beginning then just throwing you head first. I think a lot of people will find it to be a cute read like myself.

I wonder, isn't there missing something in the beginning? Well, that was quite hard to get into it because of that. But that's not the main issue. What is bothering me, is, that Asada needed really long to reconcile with his own feelings for Nao while hurting him over and over. That was quite unnecessary. Even so, Nao needed way to long to finally confess to the always insecure Asada. Just that could have saved much pains ... But what I really liked, is, that Nao actually appears as very nice and friendly... and that's not always a thing in yaoi manga...

    I've read this in the past and chapter 1 is missing a couple pages in the beginning where the uke, after a disappointment at work, is drunk and lost and falls into a bush. The seme finds him while jogging and gives him directions to the station I believe. This chapter starts off with when the uke runs into the seme again. For some reason, I can't locate the full first chapter anywhere anymore!!!

    • Ohmahgodsun November 2, 2015 12:49 am

      Sorry, the seme was lost, and the drunk uke gave him directions.

    Guys you can read the beginning of cap. 1 in "manga wall" (just eliminate the space between "manga" and "wall" and you have the site but I can't even put the name because the post will be blocked don't dare dream to put the whole link!). There are a lot of broken pages but it is possible to have an idea of what is happening.

    First time I've read a yaoi manga where I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE the PERFECT uke, Because what makes him perfect is that he is just like you and me, He isn't naive or slutty or way to girly like the MAJORITY of ukes, He is someone alot of people can relate to, His pain and frustration is for A GOOD REASON, and most of all NO RAPE and NO ASSHOLE SEME!! I mean I have found quite a few manga with a guy like this but its ruined by the asshole seme which the uke always forgives or damn rape! YAY I LOVE THIS!

    • Jenny September 23, 2014 12:53 am

      yea, I'm on the same page as you on that topic and that is way I keep returning to this manga.

    • Anonymous October 13, 2014 8:52 am

      Totally agree! I've re-read this manga so many times, it's honesty one the most believable plot lines and I appreciate that

  8. Anonymous September 22, 2014 2:01 am

    Great work. Contrary to other insecure ukes that are annoying Asada is profoundly human and his love for Nao is actually really beautiful. Asada is a pure, profound and truthful character and his love for Nao is just like that. One of the most amazing stories I have read.

    With this particular story, however, the protagonist, an event planner named Itsuki Asada scratches on the nerves with his wildly polarized swings of emotion: love/hate, happy/sad, glum/elated, jealous/cocky, insecure/oblivious, up/down, backwards/forwards, this way/that way, aye-yi-yie! I feel like I'm riding a bronco. It doesn't help that the first part of the manga seems to be missing, either, so we're dropped somewhere after some important action has happened in the first chapter. It's a good thing Iwasaki Nao turns out to be such an honest wOObie, because he really makes the story.

  11. Cyayoi August 14, 2014 9:30 am

    It hurts when they just used to get together and suddenly nao had to go far away :')

    i hope nao understands why asada did such thing in the past. Then it will be perfect ending

  12. horeeee..... June 23, 2014 9:46 am

    Omigod, I love this story. I guess when it's too much too handle, the first instinct is to run away, right from it? poor Asada. But thank god, they reconcile :))

    Sweet story with sweet cake, or whatever nao's making ;))

  13. wuaua April 29, 2014 7:53 am

    i really loved this story. i understand that frustration of your life falling apart and being with someone you can't have. i think it wasn't over the top that the uke was having such a hard time to hold it together, i don't think many of us would even if we'd like to think so.

  14. delicious creme puff April 25, 2014 8:59 am

    so sweet :3

    waiting of the wish at the end to come true

  17. Irene February 12, 2014 4:18 am

    I don't know why some people doesn't like the uke, cause I think I could understood perfectly how he feels, when you love someone but it hurts you as much

    • owl-night March 12, 2014 5:51 pm

      yup.. i agree with u,, the uke make me think im not the only type of person in the world,,, ^^

  18. dbdjsjs January 9, 2014 4:19 pm

    God the uke was soo fucking insecure weak and selfish i say leave his sorry ass

    • Anonymous February 1, 2014 10:03 pm

      Yes. He rejected him twice for stupid reasons. so annoying.

  19. Naomi December 21, 2013 8:54 pm

    Ahh, love hurts...A lovely story. ^_^
    I wish Asada sometime explained why he let Nao down but maybe Nao finally understood it himself.
