Summary

Sick of feeling like he’s riding on his parents’ coattails, Onodera Ritsu quits his father’s publishing company (where he was a literature editor) and gets a job at Marukawa Publishing--only he ends up getting stuck in the crazy shoujo manga department, which happens to be populated entirely by male editors. Plus--the editor-in-chief happens to be none other than his old flame from high school!
Also included among the various volumes are storylines following two of Ritsu’s fellow editors: Hatori and his longtime friend (and mangaka he’s in charge of) Chiaki, as well as Kisa and the attractive bookstore employee he has his eye on, Yukina. An extra novel follows salesman and longtime friend of Takano’s, Yokozawa, as he’s swept off his feet following a harsh breakup by attractive widower and single father Kirishima.
This series is loosely connected to Junjou Romantica (by the same author), as characters such as Usami Akihiko and Sumi Ryouichi are mentioned a few times as authors, and Isaka Ryuichirou is a recurring character. Yokozawa's partner, Kirishima, also shows up as Takahashi Misaki's boss in Junjou Romantica. Trying to spot the connections is an adventure of its own!

I love the manga way more than the anime. Reason being, the amount of sexiness.

  2. Yaoi Maniac December 18, 2014 12:08 pm

    ya know... i really freaking wanna know.. between yokozawa and masamune.. which one are the uke and seme.. if if.. masamune was the uke WARGHHHH i reallly wanna see it!!

    • Dinah December 18, 2014 5:49 pm

      In the actual fact takano-san is the seme :D

    • Yaoi Maniac December 18, 2014 6:17 pm

      .... i still prefer uke
      p.s between yokozawa and takano ofcoz

    • KawaiiKiller December 18, 2014 7:50 pm

      Pretty sure Takano is the seme. In Yokozawa no Baai he appeals as the uke or the waifu :3

    When does takufumi first meet his lover. I read takafumis first chapter but it looks like they knew each other before

    • masuzu December 16, 2014 3:48 am

      its in LN, so in manga its just extra chapter. u can read the novel in strawberry scanlation page i think

    • Atzuyiii!!!

      The novel has 5 volumes right now(6 in the process), and they explain since the beggining their relationship that started just after the rejection of Yokozawa from Takano. It also has a movie, but in a personal opinion the novel its much better because things are way better explained (and there is more "romantic" stuff if you know what I mean hehe). It's a very enjoyable and easy read :D

  4. KawaiiKiller December 15, 2014 8:33 pm

    Onodera doesn't want to be lovey dovey because he doesn't believe they can be like that. it is obvious they are totally a lovey dovey couple already. We just need Onodera to fall completely in love and confess

  5. Anonymous December 15, 2014 5:25 pm

    i want more

      Cause Ritsu would'nt like being put on the spot like that, but yeah I would love to see that too.

    • KawaiiKiller December 17, 2014 5:57 pm

      OMFG :O I need to see Ritsu in that position. I would love to see his reaction!!

    • Shin November 30, 2014 3:30 pm

      According to the website of Emerald magazine, their next issure is published in 26th December. That issue, for sure, will contain new chapter (in Japanese)

    • DanaeRdz December 8, 2014 5:43 pm

    I wonder if anyone else does this:
    Lately I've started to read each chapter reaaaaalllyyy slowwwwllllyyy~ but honestly it's like you need to preserve each moment you experience with this manga since we may or may not be nearing the end especially during updates...speaking of which do I even have to say it

    • KawaiiKiller December 6, 2014 11:41 pm

      I've reread this soo many times and sometimes I just stop and reread a page slowly and I'm like "loook at the love in Takano's eyes". and the lovey dovey pages I just stare at forever because I feel like they have moore to say :P it's an addiction

    • Corona December 7, 2014 2:05 am

      It's seriously my favorite manga right now, everything about it just really 'worked' for me so I'm very addicted myself :D. I wish there were more like this!

    80 DAYS LEFT I CANNOT CONTAIN MYSELF OH MY GOD

    • Ren November 22, 2014 8:08 am

      I don't think the days even matter anymore! It's kinda obvious- to me at least- that Ricchan is in love again! Though I do understand your feelings.

    • Maron November 23, 2014 9:37 am

      In manga is like 80 Days but for us in real life it will be like another 10-20 years when Ricchan tell him he love Takano : D

    • Shin November 23, 2014 11:47 am

      Sad thing is that we might not be able to read the manga in English on these sites anymore because the story is licensed and is going to be published in English by SuBLime. For those who are able to buy the manga, PLZ buy it. For people like me who can't buy it, September Scanlations always do the detailed summary for this

      You've gotta be kidding! Urgh, I hate when this stuff happens!

    • Anonymous December 8, 2014 10:53 pm

      80 days left for Haitani to make his move like how he's going to use Ritsu to hurt Takano because I don't think he will try to steal Ritsu

    there's so muuch love and cuteness in this I think I see pink flowers around me :3

    Like after that, onodera was like "WHY WOULD YOU FALL ALSEEP DURING THIS"

  18. Rie_07 November 2, 2014 7:34 pm

    I think there is 1 or 2 missing chapter about Onodera Ritsu no baii... It's tell about ristu mother got hospitalized and her fiance know that the person that Ritsu like is Takano.
