SynopsisFar away from the city, deep within the mountains, sits the all-boys high school Shidou Academy. In years past, this school housed only the sons of the most elite families in the country, but these days it welcomes all into its historic halls.
Takumi, a boy from humble origins, prepares to begin his second year at the school. Held back by psychological issues, Takumi's indifferent attitude has garnered him no friends and a reputation as a cold fish. Then along comes Gui, a wealthy and charismatic student born in America. Gui is the only person who doesn't see Takumi as odd, and the two become friends. But how will the two cope when Gui confesses his love to Takumi? And can the couple survive the revelation of the secret behind the psychological problems that plague Takumi? (Source: Blu)

I like this manga a lot. It has a beautiful story and not boring at all. That's why I'm so happy they make the live-action version with familiar casts I'd like too.
For me, the manga itself is more like shounen-ai and not yaoi. Why? Coz it didn't show any hard scenes like other yaoi-manga I've read. It more like soft and the rest of it, only depends on the imagine of the readers have hahahaaaa
Like every love-story we've know, Takumi-kun Series tells about the relationship of two main characters Takumi & Gii right from the beginning they've became lovers. As the manga goes on, it takes us how they managed their relationship (mostly at school), their jealousy, and sometimes involves some good friends and other people that also had a relation story like them as well
Both mangas involve ukes that dislike being touched. However, in T-kS it's due to a previous sexual pain. In TwT,Sw the uke has hypochrondia (if you like the sex idea, though, in the manga the uke gets briefly molested by not the seme).
Characters have horrible pasts which continue to affect them. In CUT, both the uke and seme have such issues, while in T-kS it's only the uke.
