The plot seems simple enough: Fumi tells his best friend that he is gay and not only that, that he is dating someone. So at first Shunpei is a little traumatized over his friend's coming-out. He goes through the stages - to which i guess how anyone would react. First he thinks it's a joke. Then he freaks out wondering if Fumi has been looking at him 'that way' all this time, but that moment when he finds out he's already dating someone and he's not interested in him...he wonders why.
The following chapters is about Shunpei coming to terms with his friend not only being gay but the fact that it wasn't him Fumi is interested in. I would assume any typical student would grossed out over their childhood friend suddenly announcing they bat for the other team, but not Shunpei. He's more interested in monopolizing Fumi ...even if this means dating him himself. Wait, that means becoming gay Shunpei. That also means giving up on girls and having gay sex! Aaaaand so it begins!
The comedy had me laughing out loud at times but also has the drama to match. You got to hand it to the mangaka for expressing the scenes that come with being gay. She goes through them all: Jealously. Insecurities. Competition. Secrets. Miscommunication. Ex-girlfriends. Coming to terms with gay sex...all the typical scenes. Look, the drama is nothing new in the Yaoi community but I feel that it's the characters that makes the difference. When Fumi was hurting, i was hurting. When Shunpei was scared of tissue damage from sex, i was...laughing haha The character's personalities are well thought out and had me hooked on their emotions as they were very realistic towards romance and other issues someone in that position would face.
The only negative i'll can point out is that even though the plot is entertaining, it's slow. It takes a while for their relationship to get going. However, even though I say it's a negative it's also the reason why it's so good. Shunpei was originally straight. It takes him a long time to come to terms with gay sex, instead of "Oh I'm straight but a gay man love me? okay, lets do it!" *cue sex scene*. He loves Fumi but struggles with that part of the relationship which i like.
Now to my favourite part: the art! wow. Just wow! The art is a.maz.zing. The level of detail is juicy and well drawn. The panels are well structured and deliver the scenes brilliantly. I mean, Shunpei's tear-filled-face makes me want to reach into the book and hug him! So cute. Also the extras at the end of each volume had me blushing like a high school girl! Hot. You also get some coloured panels! I am a huge fan of Nekota's works and have read many, if not all, of her mangas. I just love her art!
TL:DR if you want a yaoi comedy based around high school relationships, then this is for you. If you also thrive after good art and juicy scenes then this is definitely for you! The plot is slow though so you gotta be patient, but it's worth it!
Thanks for reading ^^
