Far 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.

Volume 1:
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, read more

User Recommendations

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).
Both ukes have a troubling past that involves rape/sexual abuse (not by the semes). Both ukes have developed phobias from this trauma, and the semes work to cure them.
Because they were sexually abused in the past, both ukes suffer disorders in which they hate being touched. Nevertheless, semes are persistent, and eventually win the ukes over.
Both mangas involve ukes that were sexually abused. Both semes are protective over them. However, they have drastically different atmospheres, BroxBro being significantly darker.
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.
Ukes have traumatic pasts which continue to effect them. Uke in T-kS despises physical contact, and uke in IgsG has multiple personality disorder.
