Childhood Friend reunited! What will become of the ditzy Naoya and the successful Tsukasa after 7 years?
The mangaka knows how to drive her stories and knows how shackle love triangles. I believe if the mangaka wanted Nyoa to be with his senpai, efforts would be made to ensure that the childhood friend will not succeed just one of the previous works of this mangaka!

Tsaundre didn't seem that he had a chance although he seemed like a wonderful man, but the fact that he didn't bother to visit or call Nyoa when his hand was injured gave the impression that his pursuit for Naoya will not be successful!

The excuse that Tsukasa gave for leaving Naoya was plain stupid!

Finally, the art of this manga was not on the same of the other works, the long rectangular shaped faces and pointy chins were annoying! As almost all characters shared the same facial features !

Didn't like the reaction of Naoya towards Tamura's confession. Especially after we learn he harbours the same feelings towards Tsukasa. Other than that I really enjoyed it. Although I wish we could have seen his meeting with his father!

    It's a simple story with no twist at all, but it wasn't a boring one. I like the way the characters and their relationship developed; it seemed more realistic than what I've read from other yaoi mangaa. Naoya wasn't be the moron one till the end, there were times when he did the right things including saying his heart out that he didn't want to leave Tsukasa's side. Awkwardness between Naoya and his sempai seemed real as well (in some other mangas, people could make up their minds so fast after getting raped, wtf...) This one is truly another slow-paced drama yaoi manga I would recommend.

    I like the slow build and that the one who tried to force the relationship didn't end up getting the guy, for once. I'm glad it wasn't just BAM "we're in love," because I've been reading too much of that recently. It's no fun! Side note: I'm worried about Tsukasa's lungs bc he is ALWAYS smoking *cough* ouch.

    The story was kind of weak but nice ending. Ending could have been sooner since the complications were out the way but its OK

  7. koi January 4, 2015 10:25 am

    Love this manga! The plot is okay but i love the flow of the story. A refreshing manga after reading tons of complicated stories. I enjoy reading this. Anyway, Tsukasa is really hot with long hair.

    • Anonymous January 7, 2015 10:59 am

      Eh I like his short hair too! He looks neat and fresh...and his manlier aura is bursting! :3

    This manga is really old... I had it as a pepper book more than 15 yeas ago. I can't believe that it's really popular on this website, because I thought the story was not bad, but not very good back then... However, somehow, I became to understand this manga is very nice, because it makes me feel good.

    I loved it (=^I^=)

    HATE HATE the uke, he is such a fucking dummy

  11. Ann NG April 29, 2014 6:04 pm

    how to say it... i think this is not a bad story, but i don't really like the uke. his senpai helps him a lots at work, even if it's for personal reasons, but still. and then when the uke received his confession, he acted like his senpai is some kind of freak homo, and even avoids him like... avoids some perverted :p

      Yes he was honestly. But I did like the interaction between he and his nii-san. I thought it redeemed him a little. And if someone made an unwanted pass at you, wouldn't you avoid him at all costs? Well, not me as I would call my drunken cousins to go and teach him some manners, but...........

    • Evilcleo October 18, 2014 5:58 pm

      That's what made him realistic. He's not overly weak or strong but neither innocent and clueless. Everyone needs help as they learn new things and when people come on too strong, human tendency is to avoid, not confront.

    good story...

  13. soulofalover April 13, 2014 11:01 pm

    At some point in the manga, Shinri-Sensei says that her fellow workers called Naoya Mr. Moron - I totally disagree - he is someone who spaces out a bit, but then if you're used to being alone all the time, you live "inside your head" don't you?
    I think he is extremelly sensitive especially toward others. If he makes mistakes, they will harm him more than others. Saying that, of course, he will sometimes cause other people to feel that he can't fend for himself - he feels quite inferior to others - all because of what happened at home...

    Anyway, poor Naoya, I do like him a lot!
    As for Tsukasa, I don't feel he's a "dark" carachter - I really find him very interesting (u don't have to be laughing all the time!!) and like him a lot.

    All in all, I've read this manga for the 2nd time now, and I absolutely love it!!
    Keep up the good work Sensei and thank u soooo much!!

  14. loved it January 25, 2014 11:28 pm

    really no meeting with his father ... they could make this manga a lot longer ...

  15. Ewokgrl January 21, 2014 9:23 pm

    I don't understand why ppl dislike long manga's because sometimes it's so worth the time to read it. 2nd time reading this and still one of my favorites

    I find it HIGHLY unlikely that someone could forget the face of their childhood playmate after only 7 years, even if he has long hair.

    • Anonymous January 9, 2014 5:16 am

      You'd be surprised. My cousin and i used to play together a lot when we were little. He was shorter than me back then. But when we he moved and we met at a mutual cousin's graduation party, he was a foot and a half taller, put on a lot of muscle, and was sporting a mustache that i was secretly envious of. I think it varies.

    • Marie January 28, 2014 4:16 am

      I would have a problem identifying my childhood friend as well. Its been years and even though I remember her name and what we did, I wouldn't be able to recognize her now.

    • Vampire Queen March 1, 2014 6:54 am

      When I first read this I was just like that, but now that I read it agaen it kinda makes sense

    • Usako July 13, 2014 11:04 pm

      LOL, you think that's not possible, and yet I didn't recognize my ex-boyfriend from middle school! He knew me (though I think he just read my name tag).

  17. RosieTheRiverter October 3, 2013 7:26 pm

    Despite what everyone else is saying, I liked how long it took to build up the relationship. It just felt more realistic :) Some yaoi mangas just jump right to the relationship, its a little annoying at times so this was a breath of fresh air.

  18. Dubedaris August 28, 2013 6:46 am

    I really liked it! It was a bit too awkward for me at times, but that's just because I'm the kind of person who can't stand awkwardness. Naoya was a bit annoying, but I can understand him. When you're super insecure, and have low self confidence, you don't just change in a day, it's a long process. I also understand how he acted towards Tamura. He trusted him, and really liked him as a friend and coworker, so he didn't want to act badly towards him. I really liked how Naoya was aware of his feelings towards Tsukasa though, and was sure that he was the only man for him.

    And I don't like Tsukasa's father at all. I don't know how I would react if I found out my dad had had an affair for 10 years, and even had a child! It's unimaginable! If I was Tsukasa I would probably stay the hell away from them. I liked that he didn't like, get friendly with them though, he just gave flowers to his dad, and was happy that he was happy.

    so yeahhhh....nice manga!
