Synopsis

Yoshida's poor popularity and constant teasing are caused by his unfortunate looks. He's short, scrawny, and is infamous for his almond-shaped eyes and the evident scar which plagues his left cheek. Just when Yoshida's school life continues to spiral down, Satou, the school's celebrity, confesses his love for him! But this is not good news at all when Yoshida assumes the worst in Satou since it's tough to trust those of high social status. With the help of both old and new friends, uncovering past memories, and the life-saving sound of the school bell, will Yoshida ever escape his bitter charades to his true sweet and friendly side?

Aitsu no Daihonmei breaks every rule in the romance handbook in the name of mixed signals, shared memories, and the sweet surrender of after school liaisons! Satou's feelings are crystal clear as Yoshida struggles in concealing his true colors. Blast off to the crazy adventures of Yoshida and Satou as the fruits of their labor grow of both their relationship, and of themselves as well.

A few one shots are included, unrelated to the main story.

This manga... Words cannot describe my love for this series. I check for updates every day, sometimes twice. It's urging on the side of obsession.

Needless to say, this is my favourite shounen ai manga yet. Basically, it's a very light story with lots of humor, cuteness and uke abuse. So if you like seeing ukes being abused and sadistic semes this will definitely be your cup of tea. I know it's mine.

Also, don't be fooled by the tag and think this is yaoi, because so far there hasn't been any action.It doesn't keep us perverts from hoping though, eh?

This is probably one of the legendary ten yaoi that we're actually grateful to exist. Yes, it is that good, and it comes from a yaoi basher. Because we all know how horribly, amazingly idiotic and illogical yaoi can be, right?

So what is different here? The difference between this piece of masterpiece and thousands of other... UNPLEASANT yaoi manga is that this manga does. Not. Force it.
It is so realistic, yet so cute. It THANKFULLY has no unnecessary sex scenes at ALL, it doesn't show too many kisses or cuddles or stupid sentimental crap, yet it gives you that "oh-my-God-so-cute" feeling without a problem. read more

Two well-known examples of the "ugly cute" trend found within BL manga.
These series are really different, but somehow, Aitsu no Daihonmei feels like the romance verision of Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro. MTNN is a dark (But comic) detective manga about the sadistic daemon Nougami Neuro who has come to earth to eat riddles, and forces high school student Katsuragi Yako to help him capture criminals. Aitsu is the story of the "Ugly" boy Yoshida, bullied by all girls in his class because the good looking and nice Saitou (Who is acctually quite sadistic) is allways using him as an excuse to not be with the girls who keeps asking him out.

Neuro and Saitou are both double faced, and both likes and keeps tormenting thier counterparts (Neuro does it way more extreme and bizarre (Not pervy tought))

Aitsu, even if it got a yaoi tag, don't really have anny sex scenes or stuff.

(And both are really good)
