Post’s Author Opinion:
Note: This is a personal opinion, it does not reflect YaoiOtaku’s official position towards the manga.
All of you, who read “Secret XXX” and were also interested into the side-characters of Shizuma and Minato, should definitely read this. It tells you the story, of how the unalike couple started their relationship and also depicts the past of the two brothers Mito and Minato. Just like the Main-story, it is a nice and easy read with a more mature atmosphere. Neverthless, as in “Secret XXX” it doesn’t spare on any romance and cuteness.
