I assume everyone who has read this one also knows Sekaiichi Hatsukoi? In SH I didn’t feel much sympathy with Yokozawa to begin with but as SH developed you started to like him. This novel, with its 7 chapters, gives us an insight to who Yokozawa really is. I’d say the storyline is a bit predictable but it doesn’t matter.

There isn’t much to say when it comes to the category: art. But there is released a little short manga version where we see Yokozawa with Kirishima so it’s easy to imaging the visuals as you read the novel.

I've read and seen a lot of yaoi and I have still yet to encounter a better yaoi than Junjou Romantica and Sekaiichi Hatsukoi.

So, moving to the Yokozawa Takafumi no Baai, compare to pairs + the love triangle in Sekaiichi Hatsukoi, this novel is a little different in a way with its awkward pairing.

Story (7/10)

It started out really slow compare to the other pairings in Sekaiichi and a couple of cliches here and there. Although it has a pretty basic story for a yaoi, it was well done, not forced -- It was sweet at the same time sour. You think it’s one read more

Sekaiichi Hatsukoi was my first yaoi manga, i even wrote a fangirl review at that time and gave it a 10 (deleted at present time). A hundred yaoi mangas later, my tastes have changed a bit and though i still read every new chapter released, i know there are much betterworks out there.
This particular spin off of SiH got my special atention after surpassing Yoneda Kou's Doushitemo Furetakunaiin the general rankings and decided to write a review.

This manga turned to novel tells the story of what happened to our third wheel man, Yokozawa after being rejected by Takano. He too must find hapiness to, right? read more

Another treasure in storries of Sekaiichi Hatsukoi.

In this story Yokozawa is shownt from very different and new angle.
Feels like Yokozawa from 2D bacame a 4D.

I happened to read the story not the manga with pics. There feeling and sorroundings were explained. That what you see in pics was written allowing your imagination run wild.

It displayed emotions way better. You can look into feelings of broken heart trying to forget and survive, gather strength to live again.

There are truly stories that are treasures. No matter gender or age or whatever comes in your mind. Try reading just for pure and beautidul story.

They don't have the same story and one is a manga and the other a light novel but I'll tell you their similar aspects: * Tsunderes uke (Yokozawa and Souichi) at the first sight you think they are seme because their rude personalities and aspects, but they are just tsundere characters. * The semes in both (Kirishima and Morinaga) at the first sight you think they are uke because their soft and pacific personalities, so they are wanko semes. * There are blackmails from the "innocent" seme to get the uke attention in both and with that fact they get closer in their relationships.
