This is a lovely manga, a sweet and funny romance which has more sexual tension than actual sex.
For having so many characters this manga doesn't seem to have a badly created character. They each have well developed personalities and are interesting. Characters that I wouldn't mind getting to know more, but there's the anime for that.
Plot...? I dunno, I think it's quite interesting. There's the wonder of why Keita is there and if he can stay. And then there's watching the relationship between Keita and Niwa progress as well. The whole story progresses smoothly and keeps the reader interested, even without having lots of sex.
It's downfall would be, for me, it's length. For what goes on I feel it's a bit drawn out. But it has the potential to be longer, more details about why Keita came to the school and why they changed their minds etc. Hell even as a slice of life it could have been longer. So it seemed both squashed and lengthened to me.
Overall a nice gay romantic story, bit thin on the yaoi, but well worth a read if that doesn't bother you.
