Post’s Author Opinion:
Note: This is a personal opinion, it does not reflect YaoiOtaku’s official position towards the manga.
What was good:
– full consent
– childhood friends dynamic
– very good pacing in the beginning
– very sweet main characters
– breaking of uke/seme stereotypes
What was bad:
– the uke’s annoying sister
– a dragged out second half of the manga
– the art style is not my cup of tea. But that’s very subjective, of course
– not enough extras/spin-off/sequels:)
One of my favorite yaoi manga out there. The story is very simple, the characters are very likable and there is enough angst to make things interesting. I do think the second half of the manga was worse than the first two volumes, but it was still entertaining and sweet nonetheless. I have reread this one many times and will definitely do it again.
