Synopsis

Third year high school student, Shino Yuzuru, is a boy with a beautiful face and an undesirable personality; he is laid back, impolite, and blunt. Soon after he goes out with someone, they dump him once his true personality starts to surface.

His junior in the archery club, Seryou Touji, is a well-known ladies' man. A rumor about him circulates in school, stating that Seryou will agree to go out with the first person to ask him out on Monday, before promptly dumping that person on Sunday. Despite the school knowing this, Seryou remains popular with girls because, for the seven days he dates them, Seryou will make his partner feel absolutely special.

Hearing the rumor, Shino becomes curious about Seryou. One Monday morning, he greets Seryou outside of the school's entrance and jokingly asks him out. However, Seryou takes him seriously, and so begins Shino's seven days with him.

I am not particularly interested in shounen-ai, but this should not be classified as strictly "eye-candy" or "love between boys." I believe this story was not written for the sake of it being shounen-ai, but for the sake of telling a "true love" story.

At first, I was drawn to the manga because of the beautiful art style, and once I started reading it, I could tell it was unique. The plot started out differently, and moved at a pace that was not rushed, but was not too slow. The characters felt almost real, as you learn more about them as the story progresses. They are read more

In this world, people judge according to one’s appearance. Neglecting them if they’re disappointed after peeling off the skin. Harsh? Yes. This is the reality of what this story takes place to. It takes your mindset into something captivating.

The main storyline focuses on two characters namely: Yuzuru, a person who may seem unblemished, ethical and perfect. He gives off a stoic vibe to many people who sees him. Most of his classmates adore him. There’s only one thing, he isn’t like what you’re imagining. A prince?No, definitely no. He’s quite the opposite. He’s moody, grumpy and frank. And most of the times ends up getting read more

Even though this is Shonen-ai this is a very interesting story. The cover really made me open this manga and i'm glad I did.

Art: The art is clean and crisp.

Plot: Seryou goes out with anyone who asks on mondays, but by the end of the week, ends the relationship because he does not find love. Shino seems to want to find a meaningful relationship, but gets dumped because his personality does not match his image. The catch is that they have only looked at women as mates and Shino asks out Seryou as a joke but didn't think he was read more

Shino Yuzuru is a third year high school student who is constantly being judged by his good looks, that are in contrast to his personality. It's not strange that when he hears the story of a junior's weird habit he feels quite curious about it; Seryou Touji is a sophomore that has adopted as a custom accepting any girl, who confesses first on Monday, as his girlfriend during the week. If he doesn't fall in love with them, the relationship ends in that Sunday and, since he is so popular, he is very lucky to get a new girlfriend every Monday, or maybe not so read more

Recommendations

Manga: Doukyuusei
Shonen-ai with likeable "grounded" characters and lots of cuteness to go around.

Manga: Slow Starter
Mangas that go at their own pace with great art and a great story. Both highly recommended.

Manga: Rin!
Seven Days is like a introdution to the BL world. Most of people start with shounen-ai or light yaoi like Little Butterfly. Rin! and Seven Days are similar because both are great stories involving archery, "love triangle" and they give the same heart-warming feeling about BL school life. I must say I hold a special care for Rin! because of the great character development we get and I really think RIn! should receive the same attention Seven Days has.

Manga: Mottomo Utsukushii Uso no Koto
The art for both are very similar, almost identical! The love interests are also slow paced and minimal but still keep you hooked into their developments. I personally like Seven Days better though as it's more light hearted with less drama.
