    Hm... I was thinking of giving this managaks works a try but I don't know where to start and which are the best (I'm picky). I was already reading some of hers, but they weren't so... wow (Fascinating Summer Vacation, etc.).
    Which one could you recommend me?

    • takame April 8, 2015 3:17 am

      mayou otoko is like some sort of spin-off since it involved a few familiar chars from punch up. also, i recommend kiss all the boys. it's a family manga and had an interesting main character. also try reading sasakure memorial.

    I was kind of sad when he lost his memory

  5. cray cray February 21, 2015 3:10 am

    Maki is....LOL :P
    Despite being super flirt and perv, he's sweetly serious person about loving Kouta....aww!!!

    Anyways.....i think Kouta's ex (before Maki) and his first man (Yuuya) are a bit similar in look, right???!!!
    And honestly hotter than Maki :))
    BUUUUTTTT.....I love Maki to death, he's funny and sweet person <3<3

    I want more stories. I want to see them living together in the house Maki wanted to build.
    I want a story where we see Maki's and Kouta's dayly life, seen from the cats point of view.

    I decided to read this manga on a random whim and after reading the first few chapters, I thought that I would drop this manga sooner or later. But as I kept on reading, I couldn't help but fall in love with Motoharu's character! I disliked him initially but as the relationship between the couple intensifies, I really love how the author portrayed Motoharu's love to Kouta - you can really see how deeply in love he is with him and I thought that it was so damn sweet of him. Motoharu is now one of my most top favorite seme's. Would I recommend this manga? Yes definitely! The first few chapters may seem like a very typical yaoi manga (to me) but after that - BAM you'll just start to fall in love with characters. READ IT!

    • Morcheeba November 24, 2014 11:14 pm

      Maki-san is really good at hiding his character beneath endless paipan-jokes and Q-Tip-innuendos. He's a perverted idiot but at least he's lovable when he's done with all that saber-rattling. *cough*

    • Gem-chan December 19, 2014 10:18 pm

      I love Motoharu, when he cried, when Kouta was confused, I cried to. He loves him soo much. Love this manga. Motoharu (Maki-San)

    I was reading this on mangahere and then I found it on here.It got me confused http://www.mangahere.co/manga/punch_up/ can the rest or the chapters be updated or uploaded?can anyone do it please? then less people will face the same problem and it will be completed there!

    Kouta's friend Saiga definitely has a thing for Kouta. But I don't think Saiga is aware of how he feels for Kouta. Why ells would Saiga's girlfriend be unhappy when Kouta shows up.

  18. W November 7, 2014 8:34 pm

    Definitely one of the best yaoi mangas. Am so intrigued by the deep passionate love Motoharu has for Kouta.

    Is it finished?According to mangaupdates it's not and where can I read the oneshots scanned by Harudaki?SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME FAST coz i'm addicted to this manga!

    When I started reading this, I thought the seme, Maki-san, was going to be the one causing the problems but I was surprised and intrigued to find out the the uke, Kouta, was also part of the conflict. I kind of felt bad for Maki-san when Kouta's ex-lover came and Kouta wanted to see him even though Kouta says he doesn't have any 'lingering feelings' for him. It made my heart hurt a little when I saw Maki-san cry. This story is really good. This is one of the best yaoi's I read because it has ahappy ending, but it doesn't come to a conclusion so easily. This is more of a realistic story compared to a lot of manga.
