The story is very down to earth, it's very heart warming and gives you an interesting look at how love between two guys can work out. They don't have anything major that happens to them, in fact some of their problems are so common we've all experienced them that is why it's easy to associate with how they feel and before you know it you feel so engrossed in the story. Very good work in my honest opinion.
The art really is lovely, though it has it's flaws I feel like it makes it all the more unique. The artist's attention to making the guys actually look like guys (and not some pale imitation of a woman) is definitely refreshing and beautiful. Although i wish we got to see more outside scenery but considering its about flat mates and all I suppose that would be pointless. I will say she paid good detail to their flats, and kept rather consistent.
There are 4 characters, in some ways their similar in some ways their not, Kouno is more serious and cool headed, Takagi while cool headed is very passionate and loving, Kei is very blunt and honest, and Naomichi is very reserved and keeps to himself. As people their individuals with personality flaws that are somehow counter balanced by their partners. The characters are likable, and sweet in their own ways, each of them experience love in varying ways makes them all the more unique. Yet their not unique in the broader sense, their rather ordinary when compared to most anime characters which sorta makes them unique in that sense. It's nice to find simple, ordinary people trying to just live their life and over come the hurdles of love.
Definitely enjoyed it, it was a good read and is definitely worth re-reading again sometime. Even though I downloaded it, I also plan to own this manga sooner rather than later. (btw, Anime castle and Barns and Noble sells it :) )
READ IT! Sorry got ahead of myself, it may be boring to some but to me I got this feeling like "everything will be okay" even though they had their issues they really gave it their all and showed that sometimes, love can conquer. It's definitely worth reading at least chapters 1 and 2 if nothing else. read more
