Synopsis

Takatou Masaki is the second youngest of four sons, and seemingly a delinquent by nature. His hot temper has put a wedge between himself and his strict father, gotten him kicked out of one school, and tossed him at a school notoriously horrible for the one thing he's truly good at, basketball. A chance encounter with the willful Yuuki Kanako may serve as a catalyst for change, as the indefinable connection she feels with him draws them together... (Source: Storm in Heaven)

Boyfriend is one of the few shoujo manga that had a typical shoujo school romance plot, but goes much deeper than most. The summary of the manga is interesting, but it does not do justice to the actual story. Souryo Fuyumi depicts each character's personality and problems wonderfully.

The art of this manga was pretty good, but some of the scenes looked slightly awkward, when the characters full bodies were shown. Nonetheless, the art improves greatly from the beginning, and suits the style of the mangaka.

Much of the enjoyment of this manga stems from the intricate characters, like many of Souryo Fuyumi's other works.

I think Mars is darker but Boyfriend has it's tragedies too. They are about two people who fall in love and gives you that same feeling.
Kareshi has two people who save each other from themselves and is a funny cute story and then dives into deep problems and brings up heavy issues like monopolizing, rape, pregnancy and still stays a crazy light love story. Boyfriend is a bit different and goes more into sports, it also runs into heavy problems like death and leaving and still has me feeling like its a light love story. They are both very good.
